"Professional in Every Regard.

I have been a client of Garth's for several decades and have always been impressed with their professionalism in every regard. Item descriptions are accurate and the staff are always helpful if additional information is requested. I live in Columbus where Garth's is located and have attended many item previews and auctions. Presentations of the items are done with great care and the venue (especially their new location at the old Columbus Power Plant) is comfortable and conducive to examining every item thoroughly. I have had a few difficulties with the on-line auction system (s) that Garth's has used during the pandemic, but I believe this is a function of the new medium and not due to Garth's. I look forward to the return to participating in person-which for me is a valued part of the experience."

"Great Experience. Fantastic Shipping. Very Happy.

First time with Garth's Auction House, and it was a great experience. My lot was even better than described and so interesting. The shipping was incredible. It honestly took me about 4 hours (spaced over 2 evenings) to unwrap and examine all of the items included. The packing was incredible, I feel I certainly got my money's worth. Will happily purchase from them again in the future without hesitation. THANK YOU!"

"Hello!
I am OVER THE MOON with this purchase! I could not be happier with the item, the beautifully and carefully wrapped items, the fast shipping - the whole experience has been a pleasure. So glad I won this amazing treasure box. I will leave a review on Live Auctioneers when their system allows.
Thank you, Sally"

"This was my first experience purchasing from your auction. The entire process was first rate from start to finish. I made a couple of calls to your company and the person that I spoke to was very nice and provided me with quick informative answers to my questions. The items I received were wonderful and exactly as described. The shipping cost was very reasonable and the difficult to ship items were expertly packed and arrived in great condition. Thank you for having such a great, professional company. I hope to deal with you many more times in the future.

"Hello Jeff,

I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you to your staff for being so kind to me when I recently brought some collectibles to be auctioned by Garth’s.  Jeff Spear and everyone there was so nice to work with.  A few of my items went in the July auction and the majority of them were sold in August.  I had a chance to stop by the August auction for a couple of hours and was very pleased with what my items were being sold for.

 

At any rate, it was a pleasure working with Garth’s and I would like to bring more collectibles for a future auction.

Thank you, S.A."

"My wife and I recently traveled from northern Ohio to Garths to have some Bronze pieces appraised.  The group of folks we dealt with were without a doubt professional, informative and most of all so very kind and a pleasure to deal with.  From the moment I walked in the door and dealt with the lovely young lady at the reception area to the great gals and fella that took time to help me, I felt at ease with no rush or hurry.
Thanks to all of the great folks I dealt with.
Please stay safe and I'm sure I will return to do business with you all.
Regards and Cheers to all, Harry"

"The catalog arrived today, very impressive, thank you. Your staff is not only efficient but very polite in helping me stumble through using UPS for my requests. This speaks highly of you and your organization."

"I know that Bill has already written to let you know that the pickup here went well, but I wanted to add my own note of appreciation and acclaim for the hard work JW put in here. he was so polite and considerate, listening as we tried to give background on the very eclectic collection of things we had acquired. It is difficult to part with objects that had given us a lot of pleasure over the years, but it was softened by knowing so much of it is "going home"....Only time will tell how the items go at auction, but at least they aren't being discarded or going to Goodwill to meet their fate. JW was fun to have around and is certainly an asset to your company, especially in one so young. Thanks again."

"I have been in the jewelry and diamond business for the past 46 years and I have done business with thousands of stores and dealers across the USA and Europe. It's such a pleasure dealing with all of you at Garth's. Everything went well and I look forward to doing lots more business with you in the very near future. I like you and I trust you and I would recommend you to buyers that appreciate good quality and want to be treated WELL."

"Its been a busy auction week....new arrivals from Garth's Auctions. Sometimes bidding from auction photos can be disappointing. These [items which just arrived] are 500% better in person and I'm thrilled. Unbelivable professional packing also. Thanks Garth's, Andrew and Amelia!"

Terry & Gail

"(We) had the best time at the Thanksgiving weekend auction. The merchandise was absolutely stunning and the staff made the experience informative and comfortable. Attending the auction in the Barn added considerably to the ambiance. I just can't say enough about the experience. We'll be back! (with friends)"
 

Pam S.

"My sister and I had a very pleasant experience today with the four very professional, helpful, efficient, and hard-working men from Garth's. Jeff, Nathan, Jeff, and Luke did a fantastic job gathering up many of our sister's treasures to take to auction. They seemed genuinely enthused, and were knowledgeable and respectful of our sister's lifelong collections. We highly recommend Garth's - without reservation."

Ted S.

"What do we think of Garth's? Janet and I love the staff, both old and new. We love the owners, Jeff & Amelia. We love the antiques, the special satisfaction you get from owning quality items that belong to our history. We have been buying and selling antiques at Garth's for almost 20 years and we count ourselves as lucky and fortunate to have such a wonderful auction house near by. We love the auctions and look forward with excitement for the next. And what we love the most is the plain old FUN!!!!! Thanks to all for making our life that much better.

"{My wife} and I just went through your beautiful catalog. Thank so much for the prominent placement of our items, including the cover. Jeff, as I have told you, building the collection and the friendships we made thereby produced considerable enjoyment. Knowing that these wonderful objects, thanks to you and your associates, can safely move on to new, equally appreciative owners, puts a smile on my face.

All the best,"

DANA C.

"My first time with your company and I am very impressed and pleased with how you handled the auction, with the item that I purchased from it, and my follow-up with your shipping department. You are an honest company. Thank you!"

Keith H.

"I bought an oak chair in the January sale. This was the first time I have used Invaluable (I normally bid on line through the-saleroom.com) and the whole (purchase) process went extremely well. I live in the U.K. and the chair was shipped by Craters & Freighters who were exceptional."

Bill C.

"ALWAYS a wonderful and professional experience. From the owners on down, it is a pleasure to be a part of their auctions - One just never knows what treasures will be available - I love it!!!"

Zach D.

"Simply excellent. Helpful, accommodating staff. Online bidding is a breeze. Top quality objects with a catalog you can trust. I can't recommend Garth's highly enough.

Frank & Mary Ann B.

"Dear Jeffers, Your attitude and your good research, merchandise, and positive enjoyable atmosphere is why we buy at Garth's Auction for higher prices than any of our other sources."

Brian R.

"Both my Father and Myself have attended a number of Auctions driving up from Georgia. After a battle with cancer and my father passing we needed to downsize and move my mom. The Garth Team came down from Ohio to work with me and my family. They were honest, professional and also very understanding. They did an appraisal and took a number of items in a large professional truck. They took care of everything and were very transparent on the whole process. My family were very pleased after all the sales were completed and transactions were finished. I will be keeping the tradition of traveling from Georgia to Ohio and attending some auctions when i can. I recommend doing business with Garth Auction house. The entire staff from my experience are very helpful and professional no matter if you are a seller or a buyer."
