4 Things to Bring to a Storage Auction

Whether you’ve won an online storage auction and need to pick up your items, or you attend auctions in person, these items will make your life a whole lot easier.

A Fully Charged Mobile Phone

With your mobile phone, you have a built-in flashlight, an instant price comparison checker, a camera, a calculator, and more. Use it after viewing and before bidding starts to do research and crunch numbers. A flashlight, notepad, and pen is a good idea to take notes.

Cash

Though more and more small, mobile, and pop-up businesses are using apps to allow credit and debit card purchases virtually anywhere, bring cash for two reasons. One, storage auctions are still often cash-only affairs. Two, bringing cash can help you stay in a budget by ensuring you don’t spend more than what you brought.

Trucks, Trailers, Dollies, Bins, Garbage Bags, and Gloves

If you drive a truck with a large bed and you win a unit, you could start moving items as soon as you gain access, so bring a dolly or two to make it easier. Usually, you’ll have 1-2 days to clear everything out. If you are unable to move everything in your personal vehicle, take time to assess the unit and figure out what moving supplies and equipment you need.
