“My dad and I decided to start collecting tractors over 30 years ago and decided it was time to let someone else enjoy these tractors. I’ve known Kurt Aumann for quite a long time and we’ve talked over the years and he asked at one point in time, if I ever decided to sell any of my stuff that he’d like the opportunity to do that. I found Kurt to be quite honest and straight-forward so I chose Aumann Auctions and I’m glad I did.”
- Alan Barbre
“Over the years I’ve attended a lot of Kurt Aumann’s Auctions as well as back to when his dad was still auctioneering, we’ve bought several tractors from them throughout our long-term relationship. They are trustworthy, very straight-forward, honest as the day is long and they know tractors. Their knowledge helps so much, knowing what to look for to help present the tractors the best.”

Thanks to Aumann Auction and Crew
In February 2019, I was in the process of finding my very unique Fordsons tractor a better home. We had the Fordsons stored in a building since the 80's. I subscribed to and received a few Antique Tractor type magazines and went online and made about 20 phone calls to people and museums that would be interested in getting the tractor correctly placed. About every other call I made to very reputable dealers and Museums, advised me to call Aumann Auctions. I really didn't want it to go to another place to be hid out again. I had my concerns about sending it to an auction and the storage scenario happening again.
I finally called Aumann Auctions. Kurt Aumman called me back quickly and offered a lot of thoughtful and professional insight. I thought about my various conversations with Kurt for a short time and felt he was right. His Auction had the best exposure for my situation. He even recommended a truck freight carrier that was well equipped and great to work with.
Kurt carried the ball on my special tractor and had the right contacts and agents to get the correct and full provenance for the auction.
I arrived in Nokomis, IL on Friday for the Friday items auction. My Tractor was scheduled for Saturday. All of His staff were friendly and helpful, as well as Kurt himself. When I saw how all of the tractors were presented and displayed for all the items big and small alike, I knew I made the right choice contracting with Aumann Auctions. In my case, the auction was a success beyond anyone's expectation. Not just in monetary value, which was terrific, but I believe the right people were bidding on the tractor, based on the effort and correct information and marketing of Aumann's Auction.
Aumann Auctions came highly recommended to me and I agree.
Thank you to Kurt and the great Staff.

PS Give that guy that hand cranks all those tractors a raise.

"Just a note from Quincy to let you know how much my daughter and I enjoyed attending another sale run by Aumann Auctions. It has been several years since we have participated in one of your auctions but the one last Sat. in Milton, IL reaffirmed to us that when you want a first class auction company to run an auction you need to choose Aumanns. In the space available, the arrangement of the tractors and implements were perfect. Aumann Auction Company sets the highest standard that few, if any, other auction companies can reach. Congratulations."

"You came to our assistance in a very stressful time. We knew little or nothing about the product to be sold, but you put us at ease. Buyers were registered from 33 states and Canada, and a new record price of $25,000 was paid for a Coffin Block John Deere A. We were greatly pleased in every way with the conduct of this sale. If you are considering the services of an Auction Co. you should check with Aumann’s. You will be glad you did. We’re happy to join the chorus of satisfied customers . "

"(AumannAuctions) was knowledgeable about my toys. I liked the way you started a bid. All the paperwork was completed and my check issued at the close of the auction-NO WAITING! This gave me closure on something I had dreaded. Just keep doing what you are doing; how can you improve on perfection "
