What our clients are saying about us.

The state of Kansas has seen a large increase in the net revenue received from the seizure auctions. I attribute this increase entirely to Purple Wave due to its Internet format, professional staff and positive customer service attitude.

Alcohol and Beverage Control Agent, Kansas Department of Revenue

The Purple Wave staff was responsive and helped us through the entire auction process. They made it easy to turn obsolete, unused assets into dollars that could be used to help replace aging assets. The auction was made easy, at the right price, and the outcome exceeded our expectations. I have already suggested Purple Wave’s services to other people.

Director of Public Works, University City, MO

The response to our auction items listed on your Internet site far exceeded our expectations. The Board of Supervisors was very pleased with the results of our auctions. Monona County will be using Purple Wave to auction items in the future. The convenience and low-cost option of using the services of Purple Wave make this an ideal method of selling excess items, not to mention the increased exposure over a traditional on-site county auction.
