Ever since shows like A&E’s Storage Wars and SpikeTV’s Auction Hunters have started popping up, we get a lot of calls asking about our self storage auctions. So, what are they and can you really strike it big?
Well, here is a little background. Self storage auctions are held when someone fails to pay their rent or abandons their unit, and we auction off what was in them. Only 1-2% of all the rented storage units in the country ever go to auction.
Storage auctions can be fun and exciting, and if you are a treasure hunter with a few extra dollars, well, it can’t be beat. “We used to see maybe 5-10 people at our auctions, and now we get a much bigger crowd because of those shows. It is neat to see, because the more people that are there, the more the enthusiasm just skyrockets ” says Moove In Self Storage owner, John Gilliland.
Want a little taste of the action for yourself? Our auction schedule is posted on our Facebook page and on our blog.
We hope you join us!
