Well this isn't entirely true.  They used to be the smaller player until they bought out the bigger player , who's name is escaping me at this very moment. SealedOnlineBids

Your point being....?

As a bidder i don't care about this, nor do i see why other bidders should care.  Perhaps because you run a storage auction website you think this is important?  But i sort of doubt that you are correct as well.  Any serious storage operator is already at a loss on a unit, whether they get $50 or $200 they don't really care, all they really care about is getting the unit emptied out quickly, and ready for renting again.

I agree, somewhat. A storage operator's primary goal is to get the unit cleaned out as quickly as possible so they can rent it out again, assuming their occupancy rate is high or the unit size is in demand. However, this isn't the case at most storage facilities. They want to recover as much as possible. I mean, who wants to leave 10, 20, 30 grand a year on the table?

Well this isn't entirely true.  They used to be the smaller player until they bought out the bigger player , who's name is escaping me at this very moment. SealedOnlineBids

Now, I totally agree with that. Sealed Online Bids was the first online storage company to gain momentum (although they weren't the first online storage auction website.) Without Sealed Online Bids getting the ball rolling, Storage Battles wouldn't be where they are today.

YUUUP! Well, not intentionally. If you recall, I responded to your comment. This morning, after being up all night trying to solve a coding glitch which locked me out of the admin area, I was forced to restore the site to the way it was on Saturday. We lost about 30 blog comments and forum posts. Oh well, could have been a lot worse.

Travis! i'm surprised you haven't guessed the site yet! i figured a man like you would be in the know of all the online storage auction websites ;)

Hint: it has "bid" in the name.

My response was: "I monitor all of my competitors and the industry closely."

Know thy self, know thy enemy. A thousand battles, a thousand victories.

Travis! i'm surprised you haven't guessed the site yet!

"I didn't realize it was a guessing game."
