Random storage auction tips, that help you make more money at the auction:

  • Bring at least 2-3 round-locks for the units you may buy. Always keep some extras in case you end up buying more than expected.

  • Bring a flash light so you have a better view of what is inside the storage unit.

  • Be prepared to sell all the household items you win at auction. Stockpile all your personal Christmas and other seasonal items to sell during the season and make even more money!

  • Call the day of the auction to confirm, because the owner of the unit has until the start of the auction to bring the storage units current.

  • Some storage facilities charge a deposit until the unit is cleaned out. Confirm the amount of this deposit before the auction. Most of the time this is $25.00-$100.00.

  • Be ready to remove all items from the unit the same day as the auction. If you don’t have a truck, you might want to line up a rental truck.

  • Never overpay. Speculators often over-bid on units, pushing up the price. Beware when the bid goes too high and back out. Paying too much for a unit costs you money and time.
