Store These Auction Tips

Have you always wanted to attend a storage auction, but not sure what you needed to bring or how to find one? Maybe you weren’t sure of how storage auctions run.  We have developed the top three things you need to know before going to a storage auction!

Auctions of storage units occur after fulfilling the State lien law procedure of someone who has not made payment on their unit.  Storage auctions aren’t our favorite side of the business, but they are part of it.

Bring cash to pay for the unit and remember these three things when attending a storage auction:

1. A government issues photo ID will be required for you to purchase a unit.

2. You are buying EVERYTHING in the unit, must remove everything and leave it broom swept.

3. You will have to leave a cash deposit ($50-100 usually) for each unit you win, and will get it back when you finish cleaning out the unit.
