Your eBay feedback is like a credit report - protect it!

Will you go above and beyond to protect your feedback? What do you do to ensure a flawless transaction?

Just saw a preview for a new cast member on Storage Wars. Forgot his name, as I'm sure we'll all do soon enough. A lovely chap with half his face tattooed. Storage Wars has officially turned into a side show.

The Lounge / So what's everyone been up to?

So what's everyone been up to? It's been kind of quiet around here. I've been remodeling, so I haven't had much time to chat. Any good scores lately?

Governor Susana Martinez signed an update to New Mexico’s self-storage lien law on April 9th, 2015. Operators in the state may now conduct lien sales online. Special thanks to the New Mexico Self Storage Association and national Self Storage Association for their efforts.

The Lounge / Let's see who can come up with the best joke.

Let's see who can come up with the best joke. I'll start.

I don't think this is what your wife meant when she said she wanted to move into a new home.

PayPal / PayPal Credit Card Chargebacks - Buyer Always Wins
« on: April 13, 2015, 10:19:38 AM »
I'm deeply concerned with a PayPal policy that seems unjust, if not illegal.

When a buyer uses his credit card to pay for a product through PayPal processing, then files a dispute, the credit card company seizes your funds and PayPal charges you a $20 chargeback fee. The most troubling part of this is not the loss of money or the ridiculous fees, but the fact that PayPal will not tell you who the credit card company is.

This just seems unfair. I mean, how do you know if the credit card company is really responsible and that PayPal isn't just stealing from people. Now, I know the likelihood of PayPal scamming people like this is slim, but there has to be checks and balances. They should be forced to provide us with this information upon request.

Anyone else have an opinion on this?

How would you like to find a Super Bowl ring in a storage unit?  :72:   Just goes to show that you never really know what you're going to find.

Auctions Hunters is officially canceled!  :34: Didn't see that coming.

Will you miss the show?

Be sure to vote in the poll above. Do you still watch storage auction reality TV? If so, what do you watch and how often? If not, why not?

Reality Shows about Storage Auctions / Berry Weiss - draft or bottle?
« on: April 06, 2015, 10:44:36 AM »
Leinenkugel's Berry Weiss is a fruit / vegetable beer brewed by Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company in Chippewa Falls, WI.

Anyone tried it?  I wonder if Barry is somehow affiliated with this product.

Not sure if you should buy that locker? Ask yourself this question and do the opposite.  ;)

What would Jarrod do?

I've noticed a lot of towing/recovery companies abandoning vehicles at storage facilities...I wonder why that is?

A new online storage auction service provider ( recently emerged on the scene. Like a few of the others, it uses a licensed auctioneer. According to a recent press release, they're licensed in Florida with plans to get licenses in several other states. Like most auctioneers, they collect a percentage from the storage operator. Looks like buyers don't pay a fee.

Now, using a licensed auctioneer isn't a requirement. After all, most people wouldn't use an auctioneer to sell their stuff on eBay. That would be an unnecessary expense. Although, I do see some value in the "service" that auctioneers offer. Assistance with organization, lock cutting, inventory, preparation of legal notices, advertising channels, their following, complying with state lien laws, etc. I believe that technology and auctioneers can co-exist in this market, even thrive together under the right circumstances.

My opinion: I think we'll see more auctioneers entering this market with local sites over the years to come.

Here is a little secret for auctioneers  :67:  - You don't have to spend tens of thousands of dollars building and maintaining an auction website. is free to use for both buyers and sellers. We welcome auctioneers to use our platform. We realize how important you guys are to the industry and we don't try to cut you out like our competitors do. Just host your auctions with us, then collect your fee directly from the buyer or your storage client.

In what ways do you think online storage auction sites could be gamed?

General Storage Auction Talk / When do you search for auctions?
« on: March 31, 2015, 08:54:35 PM »
Just wondering when you guys search for auctions? Are you the type that looks for auctions on Sunday, then plans out your entire week? Or are you the type that looks for the following day's auction the the night before? Or do you have a different method?
