I had someone local run me up on a unit, had some camping and fishing stuff, what I could see was worth about 300$ quick..  so  I bid, got ran up to 350, then someone else continued, it went for 420...  only thing is.. the buyer backed out that bid me up, now I stopped at 350..  The storage place emailed me via the web site to see if I wanted the unit at the 350...   I told the to auction it next month...  I should have go it for my first bid which was 150... I would have been happy they wanted to sell it for my last bid of 350...

Oh well.. not my issue...  I smell a RAT!!    I got out bid a few month on every unit from this storage location by another user, and saw them the next month listed again.. NICE TRY!!

They are probably just going down the list, to the next highest bidder after you. You should of just said, I'll take it for $150 and see what they said.

yep, just tell them the unit isnt worth more than $150. You bid the guy up because you knew he wouldnt stop. If you want to sell the unit for $150 i'll come pay today and clean it out.
