Mini Storage Auction: Do’s and Don’ts
Many people have discovered that you can make a lot of money buying a complete set of mini storage cart contents through an online auction. They plan to buy the whole contents, separate it, and resell it in order to make a profit.
A mini storage sale is when someone fails to pay their mini-storage bill. This usually happens for several months. The mini storage owner will contact the owner to let them know that their contents are up for auction. The outcome of an auction depends on what they have in their storage unit, as well as how their finances are at the time.
If you want to succeed at mini storage auctions, it is important to call the location ahead of time. Check that the auction is going on and determine the method of payment. You will also need to inquire about whether you are allowed to view the unit before it goes up for auction.
Mini storage contents should be moved as quickly as possible. Along with the auction terms, you’ll also see terms where the contents must be moved within 24 to 48 hour. You will need to be ready with a truck, or a van to do this. Also, be aware of the fuel costs to return it to your place.
If it happens that your mini storage unit is being offered for auction, do not attempt to buy your contents at the auction. Mini storage managers will usually allow you to pay the bill and can cancel an auction up to 24 hours in advance. Talk to your mini storage manager to discuss what you can do.
