"We recently sold our family farm and needed an auction services company. We spoke with and met Darrell Cannon. Darrell did a thorough walk through to assess the situation. There were a variety of items on the farm with represented various challenges. One challenge, the old farm equipment that been in storage or placed in various locations around the property. Some in working order, and others not operational. Darrell suggested that certain equipment would be better sold in working order. Darrell used his many resources to work on specific equipment and had them running in a short period of time. (continued...1/2)"

"There were many household items of value. Darrell and his team clearly helped to identify, organize and highlight the higher performing items during the auction. The auction was well done, with a high degree of professionalism. Darrell’s suggestions and advice were all well received. He and his staff worked tirelessly to help coordinate our successful farm auction. I can easily recommend Cannon Auction Services for your next farm auction. (2/2)"
