good article,though the author ( electrogames ) states mostly obvious points and the negatives but does provide some insight....here's the thing though..eBay does these promotional educational pieces all the time...they are usually featured "experts"....but wait... delving a bit deeper..according to his feedback this particular expert has sold ZERO items on eBay this year and has ZERO items for sale on eBay currently.... so once again, you've got to take into account who's doing the talking,,, someone who is an active participant,working hard at it...or some sideliner doing his monday morning quarterbacking pointing out what you should be doing...

Just came across this eBay buying guide about storage auctions.

http://www.ebay.com/gds/The-REAL-truth-about-Storage-unit-Auctions-Part-1/10000000021760996/g.html

You are more likely to find the following items in storage units than anything else: furniture (usually cheap furniture that is hard to move and sell) WRONG!, household items (used bathroom cleaner is not worth anything on the secondary market) WRONG AGAIN!,

Out of every ten units you buy, you may find one good one. Very conditional based on what you consider a "good" unit to be, what your buying/bidding habits are, what part of the country you live in.

Trouble is; most of these 'newbies' do NOT know how to properly bid, assess a unit, and use proper etiquette. They are also over-paying for trash! DING,DING,DING,DING,DING,DING,DING,DING; WE HAVE A WINNER!
