Know Before You Go: Storage 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.

Along with bringing cash and a valid government issued ID, remember these three tips when going to a self storage auction:

1. You cannot enter any units or touch anything until you pay for it.

2. We charge a cash cleanout deposit (so come prepared) – refundable once the unit is empty.

3. The number of bidders varies widely – sometimes we have 5 bidders, other times we have 50.
