I have friends that have done this for years.  Decided to start same time some TV show gets EVERYBODY all excited about storage locker auctions.  Went to my first auction and watch people bid on things that looked like junk or so packed it was a gamble.  Watched and tried to learn. Bought a locker 3 wk ago for $294.15 :-\ with $95 :'( round trip fuel cost.  So far sold $320 ;D and have a friend planning to buy a flat screen for $200.  My son's wife is expecting the first gradchild so I am keeping some things that would probably bring about $100.  Yard sale tomorrow will report back after that.

That is an odd-ball bid, or is that with the tax and stuff included.  Or was it a silent auction?  You must be driving some distance for that fuel cost.  Sounds like one fill-up in my truck which would get me about 400 miles depending on traffic.  Please keep us informed.  More info we all have the better.

An auction done by a manager of the chain of facilities no buyers premium.  Bid was $275 the other was tax.  The flat screen was right up front the gamble was if it worked.  It did so I won. That was round trip pulling my trailer about a tank and a half.  There were several auctions on the same day at the same time it split the crowd some.

Sold $120 of things this morning and have about $40-$60 left.  Traffic was light for first of the month yard sale guess the holiday was the reason.
