Posted this in the Northwest forum, but I guess it could just as easily go here:

Hey everyone, I'm going to be moving to Bonney Lake in a couple weeks, so I thought I'd introduce myself.  I currently reside in Chicago, but haven't bought a locker for quite some time now (saving up for the move, getting my masters, insane price raising due to those damn TV shows, etc) but I'd like to get back into it eventually.  

It won't be for a couple months at the earliest, as I have to get settled in, and stable, but I figured I'd at least start going to some auctions again, to at least see how it goes down and whatnot. you know, scouting the area/bidders/etc.

I won't be buying for business/profit, like most of you, just more for collectibles/furnishing for the house so my bids will end up being few and far between (just like in the past).

I guess I'm just posting to say "hi" and to see how you guys find your auctions.  Here in Chicago, I was friends with someone who worked with an auctioneer, and they would let me know when auctions were coming up, so naturally, i'm going to be fairly out of the loop in Seattle.

Also, from reading the posts here, I noticed that you guys were feeling the inflation of prices that I also experienced in Chicago, are you guys still experiencing that?  If so I guess it'll be even longer before I bid on another unit.

cheers,

Avelanch,

Welcome to the forum. This is a great site and you will find it is VERY informative.

It looks like we are going to be neighbors! I live on the NW corner of Lake Tapps (no, not on the lake).

I look forward to comparing notes. I have not done much at all. Went to a couple and bought one and and done very good.

thanks, yeah we'll be fairly close.  You must live close to my parents old house (lakeland hills in auburn)  Maybe we'll see eachother at the auctions.  I've only really bought 3 or 4 lockers over the years, but maybe that'll change.  i'll probably just be a spectator for at least a couple months or so, but i'd love to compare notes.  we should try to meet up eventually.

Avelanch,

If your in the area there is an auction in Bonney Lake tomorrow.

I'm not going for a couple of reasons.

1.) A Saturday...

2.) It is a sealed bid - open the door, the walk by, write your bid on a piece of paper and PRAY.

When you get in the area, let me know.
