If you have ever been to an auction, then you already know why they are so popular.
For the uninitiated: auctions are awesome!
There are many types of auctions and they are all exciting and potentially rewarding experiences for those in attendance. You never know what will happen at a storage unit auction, which is just one of the surprises you will find at these awesome events.
If you are considering heading out to a storage auction near you, make sure you bring plenty of cash and an adventurer’s attitude!
Storage unit auctions attract a wide variety of folks, from the experienced buyer to the novice adventurer. Regardless of experience level, the community is made up of auction hunters who are there for many different reasons. Some of the more veteran folks will be there to hopefully add some priceless item to their collection, with hopes to sell it and return a profit. Other people might attend an auction in hopes of finding something they can actually use themselves, like a couch or washing machine. You’ll even notice some visitors that are just there to watch!
As with all types of auctions, you should never judge a book by its cover and assume too much about your competition beforehand.
While there is always a very brief period before the auction where potential buyers are allowed to peek inside the unit, it is not nearly enough to get a thorough inspection out of the way before you begin bidding. Some units will contain lots of boxes that you won’t get to open or other types of containers that keep you from knowing what you’re bidding on.
That is why these events are so enticing for thrill-seekers; you just never really know what you’re getting!
The popularity of storage unit auctions has skyrocketed over the past few years. They have grown in both size and frequency and are showing no signs of slowing down.
As you become a part of the storage auction community, you will find that you could potentially fill your calendar with auctions, perhaps in some places you’ve never been before.
