Stories about Storage Auctions / First Storage Auction..........
« on: July 14, 2011, 02:37:03 PM »
I went to my first auction today that I intended to bid.  I must say.....Jesus H Christ...are people that f&!%&^%! stupid?????

Went to the first auction at 10 am...30 people or so in attendance...The first locker looked really good...10x20 neatly organized, alot of boxes, you could see tools and "guy" stuff...Went for $850....The next 5 were all ****....and went for over 600 each.. Not one should have brought more than 100-200 in my opinion..people showing up in their personal vehicles bringing the family, ....only a couple of recognizeable regular locker buyers, its like a carnival or something...knock down the bottles and win a teddy bear...the only problem is the teddy bear is worth $10 dollars and they are paying $100 for the extra balls to knock down all the bottles just to say they knocked down all the bottles.
The next auction:  10 units...all no more than $200 on a gamble....average price:  $600.
The shows have really distorted the values of the lockers ....I sincerely hope that it levels itself out back to a dollar amount that is in relation to what the units realistically are valued at.

I know now that I have to increase my maximum dollar output if I want to compete in purchasing lockers...but I have to decide if I want to pay just for the thrill of winning....See my point....???

Hopefully today was a fluke....

Will let you know.

Hi guys,

If you remember reading my posts a couple of months ago about being in the planning stages of my Storage auction business then this will be the update.

I have managed to secure all the "tools" needed for this endeavor and am ready to start.  The hardest part about all of this "securing" was giving up my passenger vehicle for a large truck.  I even contemplated a box truck but just couldnt bring myself to go there.  I ended up finding an older model Ford F-250 king cab with a long bed for a ridiculously low price.  I am still going to purchase a tandem hauling trailer in the next couple of months so I am going to stick to units that are limited to smaller manageable items at first.

There are a couple of auctions this week that I will attend and will keep you posted with pics and details of my finds.

Wish me luck...

Hey guys...Rolf from Northern California here. 
New to Storage auctions but not new to auctions. 
I have been buying and selling for a number of years and have decided to go full time in the storage unit business.
Just thought I would drop in and see what the rest of you are up to.
