There are a few things to keep in mind for these auctions. A specific unit auction can be cancelled if the renter pays their back rent on the unit in full before the auction starts. Payment for the full units purchased is by cash only. The bidding will be an open bid format with the buyers being allowed to “peek” inside the storage unit before the bidding starts. The winner of the bidding will have 48 hours to remove the items from the unit which they just purchased.
If you are looking for possible treasures in the units, here are a few tips that might come in handy:
- Bring a flashlight. This will allow you to better see items in the unit.
- When accessing the unit before the bidding, look at the condition of the unit. If it is dust-covered, the items could have been in the unit for a longer amount of time.
- Look at the items that are visible in the unit to see if they are outdated or damaged.
- Look for how the boxed items are packaged. If the boxes are labeled, this will let you know the contents of the boxes. If the boxes are sturdy moving company boxes, there is a better chance that there are better quality items in the unit.
