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.

Bring cash and remember these three tips when attending a storage auction:

1. You will have 48 hours to clean the unit out after “winning” it.

2. If you are tax exempt, remember to bring your tax ID number.

3. Bring a truck or a trailer the day of the auction because the unit has to be completely empty within 48 hours.
