Hypothetical question: Suppose there was a storage auction information service in your area which called every storage facility within a 60 mile radius. If this information service provided information on 100% of all storage auction events in your area & provided 30-40 auctions per month that you couldn't find on any other website, at what price would you subscribe to this website?

$5 $10 $15 $20 $25 $30 $35 $40

Thanks for your input.

SB 690 was recently introduced to the Texas Legislature to amend the Texas Property Code, Chapter 59, which deals with storage lien sale notification requirements for storage facilities in our state.

One of the main changes being proposed involves the option for storage facilities to publish legal notices on free websites for the storage industry. Currently, storage facilities in Texas must run their legal notices for two consecutive weeks in a newspaper of general circulation, which can be quite expensive.

This prospective change may cause some confusion. Once storage facilities realize that they can save hundreds, if not thousands per year on their advertising expenses, they will abandon ship, and begin posting public notices for  storage auctions on their own websites. Public notices in newspapers will be obsolete.

So how does this affect you, the storage auction buyer?

If every storage facility in your area listed public notices in different online source, this would make an already imperfect system all the more confusing. Can you imagine having to visit hundreds of websites to find auction information in your area?

Garage Sales / This is how we made money with Garage Sales.

When I was at my peak, buying 7-10 storage units per week, I had so much merchandise that I had sell it quickly. My employees and I would fill up two 26 U-Haul trucks per week and then have a gigantic garage sale in a car lot that I rented on Saturdays. I got great exposure being on a major road and we had about 800-1000 people stopping by every Saturday. With this many people picking through your merchandise, you will move a lot of items that you otherwise couldn't sell. But surprisingly, we still had a ton of stuff left over at the end of the day.

At first, we placed an add on Craigslist under the free section to get rid the leftovers. This became a problem because a lot of people usually showed up and they really made a mess. They would take all of the good stuff and leave other stuff scattered everywhere. I got tired of this and decided to donate all leftover items to local charities, which helps out the less fortunate people and it is a great tax deduction.

I hope this has been informative. If you are looking for storage auction information & you live in the greater Houston and surrounding areas I encourage you to visit our website http://auctionstx.com/houston-storage-auctions/
