I Knew Something Was Odd About Her.
« on: September 11, 2014, 01:36:08 PM »
One of the auctions I'm at today I notice this young lady walk in, never saw her before and she looked a bit out of place. There were 16 units and she followed us around to all of them, bidding on only the last one. She wins the last unit and then mutters under her breath, "yeah got my stuff back."

So it was her rental unit that she had defaulted on and for $110 won all her stuff back. Once others found this out they were like, "oh if I knew I wouldn't have bid on it." All the while I'm thinking to myself, if I knew it was her's I would've bid it up another $100 just because she tried screwing over the storage facility. I tried to find how much she had owed but couldn't.

I guess I'm the evil one but if I see someone bidding on their unit I go for it.  They are trying to get it back for a reason and worst case scenario they will stick around to buy it after I had a chance to go through it real quick.

That is the downside that every storage owner has to face I guess. It is not made mandatory for the auction bidders to register with the storage centre before placing any bids. Thus, anyone from anywhere can just come down and make the bidding. These people are smart to actually outsmart the storage unit system. Even if you make it such that you need to register your details before placing a bid, the storage unit defaulted owners could simply pay someone to make the bidding on their behalf. Hence, it is just a sad situation that cannot be improved.
