Tips for Attending Storage Auctions

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.

Be sure to bring cash and a government form of ID and keep these things in mind:

1. You will need to pay state sales tax on the units you win, unless you provide a state issues resale tax exempt certificate.  We will need to make a copy of it.

2. You will have 48 hours to clean it out.

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

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.

Additionally, keep checking our Auction page to find out when we hold them at our facility.
