What to Bring to Storage Auctions

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

A Fully Charged Mobile Phone

Your mobile phone has 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 are promising ideas for taking notes. 


Though increasingly 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 on a budget by ensuring you do not 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 can start moving items as soon as you gain access, so bring a dolly or two to make it easier. Usually, you will 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.
