There are several forums about buying storage auction lockers. Why did you choose this one?

Is it your primary or secondary source for information?

This was the only one I saw that it seemed like your average people shooting the sh*t about auctions.

The others it seemed either it was people with an agenda for being on the forum OR it was a billion newbies asking the same stuff over and over......
There wasn't any real world discussions.

Plus the format.  This style of board is pretty easy to navigate.  Simple. Nice break down of threads.

I tend to be a loner in my local auction community. I was looking for an outlet to learn and share info. I spent two weeks reading old posts on here before signing up. There truly is some very good information on these boards and you all made me laugh a lot.

Like Alias said most of the other boards are so filled with advertising and peoples agendas. Also there seemed to be more consistent posting on here. I still venture to other boards once in a while. Usually their newest posts are several months old.

This is the only viable forum on the subject, and at this point I'm not sure a true competitor could 'rise up'.

I agree. Not only is this the largest forum in the storage auction niche but it also has more content about storage auctions than any other website in the world.

Before being active on this forum, I stalked this and other forums online. I chose to participate here because it's the only one that isn't a "measuring contest". The others seem to be filled with these hot shot guys just looking to show off what they found. But I was looking to learn and share experiences. Not to "pull out" my most prized finds and gloat about it.

Yeah, around here the only prized finds we "pull out" and gloat about are the HomeGrown ones. :D

Is it just common sense to go to EVERY AUCTION you can or pick and choose?
