We once went to a U-Haul auction with Luther Davis in the MetroPlex of Texas that the previous month had been cancelled due to the companies paperwork not being handled correctly. Needless to say the next scheduled auction, they all were combined. I can't remember the exact amount ..way over 125 units total. We started at 8 in the morning and it ended after 9 in the evening. One of the best we have been to (so far). Texas almost always has big caravan runs at different times of the month as long as you are willing to drive the distance. Now, in Central Calif. so they are pretty small in comparison, for some reason some of them split them up with two different auctioneers even when they are only a few miles apart and only 7 or so locations. We did go to one that had maybe 100 for the whole week but the lockers were 85% trash. Even the auctioneer looked into one and said "Oh GEEZ, again?"

IMO a worthwhile SECTION to open in the forum would be one that Drew never followed up on and that would be:

There is a surprise waiting for you in the Noobie Center.

But But if we had a FAQ....half of our thread count may (would) go out the window?

Back on topic - today's auction has 83 units listed since we didn't do a auction in Nov.  Now - how many of those will actually come up for auction? Maybe 20.

I just found an old advertisement for a moving and storage facility in Lawton, Oklahoma that auctioned off 860 vaults. The auction started Wednesday, March 30th, 2011 and ended Thursday, March 31st. Wish I could have been there.
