    Been buying, trading, and selling for a number of years and I can say without question that this is the most expedient and flawless transaction of which I have had the pleasure to engage. Every promise carried out on time and absolutely the best communication I have ever experienced. Absolutely the highest caliber of integrity and fairness from bid to payout. Thank you!

    Although I was a little hesitant at first, the process couldn't have gone smoother. I'm very happy with the whole process. I would not hesitate at all to contact 2nd Markets in the future should the need arise to sell something. Thank you for providing a very professional environment in which to do business.

    Our transaction with 2nd Markets was seamless from beginning to end. Jon responded within 24 hours with a bid for our item. We agreed to it and were soon sent clear instructions about packing and pre-paid shipping. Once he received the package payment was sent via e-check, which our ATM machine bank took without a problem. Because we received an email directly from Jon we felt confident his company was legitimate and trustworthy, and indeed it is. While the bid we received was less than we had seen for similar items on the internet, the ease of making the sale, and knowing precisely what to expect, was worth it.

    I sold some of my fathers knives to 2nd Markets and it could not have been easier. We agreed on a price and payment was made on the same day the knives were delivered. I would highly recommend selling your items to 2nd Markets. I wish I had more stuff to sell.

    I’ve done business with many companies over the years, but it is very rare to deal with a company where there are absolutely no surprises, they do exactly what they say they will do and when they say they will do it and they keep you informed throughout the entire process. 2nd Markets is such a company. It is a real pleasure doing business with them.

    2ndMarkets gave a fair price, paid for shipping and handling and sent the check promptly after receiving the merchandise, very pleased with the experience.

    We had a mutually favorable business experience with 2nd Markets and Jon Warren while dealing with family silver collections. Jon was straightforward and thorough in helping us to understand what we had, what it was worth, and 2nd Markets' role as buyer. The transfer of ownership came off smoothly and totally as planned.
