The popularity of storage unit auctions is still growing. Storage Wars just launched its third season of shows a week ago. You can follow the shows and appearances by the “stars” of the show when they are doing their Lockbuster Tour via their Facebook page. The basic premise of the show is that teams battle to bid on items in storage units that are in foreclosure. Some of the stars of the show own resale and consignment shops, while others are looking for the elusive “treasure”. You could say that this show encourages people to be modern treasure hunters.
Stop N Stor will be hosting a storage auction at our Hinesville locations this Saturday, June 16, 2012 starting at 9am. Our last storage unit auction was at the beginning of March during a heavy rain storm. The bidding for the last storage units took place between booms of thunder and tornado sirens going off! The storms did not keep the crowds and the regular bidders away though. They still were happy to take part in the auction. Let’s hope that this weekend’s weather will be much better than the weather in March!
Stop N Stor’s auction will stop at our four Hinesville locations . The bidding will start at 9am at the 245 W. General Screven Way location. Once the units have been auctioned at this location, the bidding moves to the 746 EG Miles Parkway (Highway 196) location. The bidding then moves to our 1018 West Oglethorpe Hwy (Hwy 84) location and the auction ends at our 1049 Kacey Dr. facility.
The auction will be an open bidding system led by our auctioneer, Terry. Stop N Stor’s regional manager, Lisa and the facility managers will also be on hand to answer any questions. Cash is the required payment for our storage auctions. The auction will be on the entire contents of the storage unit. The bidders will be allowed to get a brief look at the contents of the storage unit before the bidding starts. Once the bid is received on the storage unit, the new owner has 24-48 hours to remove the items from the storage unit.
If you are new to the storage unit auction process, it is important to bring cash, a flashlight, gloves and a way to remove the items that you have purchased from the storage unit. Come out and see what storage auctions are all about this Saturday, June 16th. Keep up-to-date on any future auction information via our Facebook and Twitter page .
