Has anyone ever teamed up with another buyer to purchase a unit? I'm not talking about your business partner or someone you brought with you to an auction with you. I'm talking about another buyer you decided to team up.  Maybe that buyer had an outlet for something valuable inside the unit or perhaps it was for financial reasons. Whatever the reason, how did it work out for you?

Nope, hence my username.

I almost did this one time when I saw a really great unit and was short on cash but decided against it. If it was a unit with one high dollar item I may consider it but otherwise just dealing with some stranger or even just a casual colleague you know from auctions I dont' have the trust to say okay lets split it and sell it and split the proceeds. If the other guy finds a gold necklace while searching I don't trust him not to pocket it. With so many small dollar items I just think its more hassle than its worth to have to try to sell them together or decide who gets what.

Back when I was heavy into auctions I was working with a smaller bankroll than I am today so I was tempted many times to do something like this however now I have enough money to buy any unit I would want to buy, anything over what I could afford would be more than I would ever want to lay out on an auction anyway.

My current business partner and I may get back into auctions to supplement our other ebay business and we'll have much deeper pockets together than I used to so in a sense I guess thats partnering but its with a friend I've known for 10 plus years.

Would you use a credit card to purchase a storage unit?

Would you purchase a storage unit online if the facility was 100 miles away?
