I'm sort of in between near Monroe. I will be working 3 different auctions on the 26th. All of them on the Southside of ATL starting at 10 am 1:30 and 3. The 2nd one I may not attend if the first runs long which is a PODS auction and I'm interested to see what those are like. Hopefully the crowd will have thinned out by the time the third one goes down. I won't get my hopes up though- the listing included " 51" TV, trailor, motorcycle" Really? Did they have to put that. I love the "misc. items" ones so much better.

I have been looking more into S. Carolina. So far I'm not impressed with their PA site. You can't even search their site! I did find another good site for 15/ 50 states. It does not have SC but does have listings for NC and VA. Maybe more looking will be in order. Anyways the site is: mypublicnotices(dot)com

If you have decent but cheap furniture you can't move, call a Real-Estate Agent. The only ones still in business are doing property management and they probably know some family that needs what you have.
They can usually come pick it up too! This saves you the dump fee and gas.

I guess I'm lucky I live here! I have at least a dozen auctions within my range over the next couple weeks. I've been googlin' the addresses of the sites and "street viewing" them to get an idea of the areas I'm unsure of whether they're worth my while. There is one in Athens that had a nice number of units, about a dozen. I got a street view of the address but it must be a new facility because all I saw was woods. This one I'm definitely going to on the 23rd. @ 9 am. I'm expecting broke college kids' worthless furniture, books and such, but there's always the possibility of an air hockey or beer pong table so being thirty mins. away-I'm in!

that tool box way back there isn't cheap either

 Hey everyone. I'm from NE Atlanta but have lived all over the state. I will be attending Auctions from Mc Donough to Dawsonville, Athens to Austell and any interesting places in between. I used to bid on units with my Grandmother when I was a teenager. I miss the thrill of digging and tricking my brother into thinking something gross is something valuable. I'm sure I will run into some of you, and from what I remember and have read it seems that there are still hospitable people doing this. I'll be in the black and blinged "Hustler" trucker hat. Good luck and Happy hunting!

In each state there should be a website that shows all the auctions being posted under "public notices," since that is the legal requirement necessary. I would never pay anyone to tell me something I can find for free, and neither should you if you are planning on taking this business serious. Go to your state> Press association> Public Notice Search> then hopefully you can usually filter down to auctions/public sales. After all, you aren't going to make any money reading about adoptions.  ;)
