I have been attending Al's auctions for 10 plus years now and I can easily say he's the highest priced, but worst auctioneer in the area. I was on their mailing list and I would get an email the night before the auction at about 9pm with details. They screw up my bids constantly and I am always correcting the wrong amounts at the end. My neighbor needed an auctioneer and he called Al four times before he called back. They set an appointment and Al never showed or called. Other than the newspaper, he doesn't advertise his auctions at all which would tick me of if it were my property being sold. Lakeshore auction service is WAY better. I think they are the only other auction service in the area. I still go to Al's auctions because there aren't very many to chose from here in Manitowoc, but I still think his auctions suck.
