How common are "piece by piece" auctions in your area ?
« on: February 10, 2013, 07:59:23 PM »
There is one company in my area that covers a couple of hundred mile range and ..I think...only does auctions for one storage facility chain.

Other than that, it's a rarity here.

In addition to telling of your experience with this kind of auction, do you feel you get a good return on your items purhased?  After a few responses I'll relate how I've done with this outfit.

Maybe Once a year? I have done well at the ones I have attended, but there is a greater tendency to pay retail if you don't know what you are doing.

In Houston, only a couple in every 500 or so storage auctions.
