Gary Trettel, president and CEO?of Cat Auction Services said that the company’s goal is to create a positive environment at every sale.
“In every new market we serve, Cat Auction Services’ goal is to leave a very positive impression on our customers. For consignors, that means fair and honest discussions on values, auction rates and make-ready charges. Equally important is the impression for our buyers on, detailed inspections, a comfortable auction environment with friendly staff, and professional auctioneers with excellent integrity. In the northeast region of Pennsylvania, we believe we were able to accomplish these goals and gain the trust of our customers,” said Trettel.
