Come see what everyone is talking about!
Our storage unit legal auctions are held roughly twice per year, possibly more depending on the number of delinquent units. The legal auctions will always be held on Mondays at 10:00am. Check the counter the the left for the next legal auction date.
How the process works:
You will want to arrive 10 minutes before the 10:00am start time. This will allow enough time for you to fill out your bid sheet. Keep in mind that if you bid on a unit, you must supply a $50.00 refundable deposit for each unit that you win.
The auction will start promptly at 10:00am. The facility manager will walk around to each unit that is part of the auction. The unit door will be raised and you can take a look at the unit contents from the outside of the unit. Entering the unit would be considered trespassing since the contents still belong to the person renting the unit. As we go around to each unit, if you see a unit you like, write on your bid sheet the amount you would be willing to pay for the contents. When you place a bid, you are bidding on the entire unit contents and will be responsible for removing all of the items from that particular unit.
Once all of the units that are part of the auction have been viewed, you will then turn in your bid sheet. About 30 minutes after the auction ends, the winners will be posted in the office lobby.
If you were the highest bidder, you will pay the amount of your bid plus the $50.00 deposit. Winners have until the end of the business day to clear out the unit. If the unit you won is 10x20 or larger, you will be granted one additional day to empty the unit. After the unit is cleared out and it is verified by facility staff to be completely empty, you will receive your $50.00 deposit back.
