Say what?

A bidding matrix=a complex, but efficient algorithm for deciding whether to buy a unit or not.

(most of us use a gut feeling based on what we see and maybe on what we know about the former tenant)

My phone with unlimited data and talk... Nothing like showing up for any type of auction and being able to google instant pricing and info. I also use it to phone a friend if I am looking at tools, construction equipment, anything to do with snakes/lizards, etc... I also use it to post to Craigslist and most recently eBay. It is also my primary camera for reselling even though I have several super nice cameras with lenses/lighting. I honestly don't think I could do what I do without it...

Research! That's my new best tool to use. With all the scams of storage owners/employees going thru units cherry picking what they want! I like to do research to find out as much as possible about the storage property I go to. There are just way,way to many stories with proof of how these units have been gone thru and picked of what is valuable. What do you expect these shows have changed buying units for the worse. Sad but true! Everyone wants a piece of the pie.

Latino's from HomeDepot parking lot.
Seriously. Not being racist. Those guys are awesome!
Work hard, fast and for a reasonable price.

Need a locker boxed, trucked and cleaned in under an hour? Done.

Tablet computer for looking things up, my wife and I both carry them and can get info on items we see in lockers pretty fast.

Another super useful tool in this business and in life in general is a pocket knife.  I'd be lost without one.
