About Us

With over 40 years in the textile industry, Gerald Deaver started T&T Liquidators out the back door of an Antique and Gun shop in the late1980's.  After deciding to follow his dream of opening a small Antique and Gun shop to fuel his passions, Gerald quickly realized there was a need for an experienced and knowledgeable liquidation company to serve the apparel manufacturers. 

The antique and gun store was transformed into a liquidation company to fulfill the needs his customers were requesting.  From a small 5,000 square foot facility, T&T Liquidators has grown into an 80,000 square foot facility servicing customers worldwide.

With the help of his son John-Paul Deaver, owner of Deaver and Associates, T&T Liquidators now provides full service liquidation, auction, appraisal, and real estate services to industries throughout the United States and abroad.  With our knowledge of the current markets, we are able to turn our customer's surplus equipment into cash.
