Self Storage



March 23rd, 2015


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.1. All payments are required to be in cash2. We charge a $100 cleanout deposit (so come prepared) – refundable once the unit is empty.3. Bring a flashlight so you can see what is in the back of the unit since you are not allowed to go in.Need help finding a storage auction in your area? How does bidding right from the comfort of your home sound? www.storagebattles.com offers a unique experience of bidding anywhere you have a computer and internet. The only catch is you have to still go to the storage facility to clean out any units that you’ve won. Don’t bid on ones that are far away from you.
