Other planets or satellites only may experience quakes if they are not of gas or fluid nature, what of course exclude giant worlds like Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus or Neptune, and perhaps Venus too.
Now, even if a planet has a solid crust, to have its own quakes it is required to have it divided in a collection of moving tectonic plates.
A planet also can look solid as a rock but it may lack of an internal active core, a one melt at extremely high temperatures even under tremendous pressures, conditions that can generate the magma required to boost seismic or volcanic activity.
The lack of atmosphere or very tiny one present like it happen in our moon or in mars reveal that its core is not enough active to have such behavior.
This is since if the core is not in constant activity there can not be magnetic fields enough strong to protect the atmosphere of to escape to the outer space. When a world does not show to have atmosphere is a clear signal of absence of those magnetic and electric fields and so its interior is not really active.
This is something any seismologist can confirm to you in case you don't trust my word. I would suggest to consult good sources before to come with arguments that reveal lack of understanding of the topic, with all respect.
