Musing from an Auction Buyer

I often wonder what it is about storage locker auctions that motivated me to change my career focus from media sales to being a small business entrepreneur, buying and selling on the internet, flea market and occasional yard sale.

First and foremost, I really enjoy being my own boss. The chance to compete with other bidders is a challenge, to be victorious a thrill. Every locker is a gamble, it is either another trip to the landfill or money in the pocket.

The labor aspect of the business is even something I find worthwhile as I have the choice of when and where I work and how hard.

Overall, the return on investment adds up in amounts that are significant.  I recommend this website and this endeavor for those willing to work hard to reap the benefits.

  1. i know its an auction but I wish sometimes people would back off if you put an substantial amount of money-bid on it. I know it is also a competition but I think courtesy should also be a factor not a fight

    1. Lynne, they might be thinking the same about you! All is fair when it comes to auction, good or bad.
