General Storage Auction Talk / My first auction today
« on: December 30, 2010, 02:38:53 PM »
Had a busy day planned today. Auctioneer had 5 locations listed with multiple units. Last night I looked at the update and it was down to two locations. One and hour away from me with one unit and the other 20 min from me with 5 units. We stayed back for the local one. Get there and there are at least 50 people there and only one unit would be going up for auction. The auction started 30 min late (that surprised me since so many of the others were canceled).

Door goes up and it is a 5x10. I see a few boxes, paint cans, toys, cd rack, a couple of misc cheap chairs and an office chair. The unit went for $675.00, hell first bid (called out prior to the start) was $250.00. Me and several others sat their scratching our heads (must have been something none of us seen :-\

Is this to be expected? If so, I can not see anyone making money from doing this.

So you have bought a unit or two or more, you have sorted through and divided your stuff and it is sitting in the garage, warehouse, etc... Now what? From what I have read I have made assumption;

collectibles - specialty shops and ebay
small stuff that is easy to ship - ebay
electronics - ebay and craigs list
furniture - craigs list and local paper
clothes (non-designer) - garage sale
any of the above - flea market and auction house

Is that about right? What do you do to offload your stuff and maximize your profit?
