Storage Auctions

A Storage Unit Auction May Help Diminish Losses When You Can No Longer Pay Your Storage Bill

auction of a self-storageIf you’ve fallen on difficult economic times, rather than face the total loss of your storage unit and its contents, consider having Exclusive Gavel sell your belongings in a storage auction. Storage auctions are open to the public, and the items in each unit are sold en masse. Potential bidders are not permitted to enter a unit before bidding; instead, they must make a bid based on what they can see from the doorway. Upon winning a unit, a bidder generally has 24 hours to remove all the property and clean out the area. Many times, the buyer will return personal items, such as photographs, scrapbooks, and paperwork. Exclusive Gavel also offers Internet auctions, which means we can sell the items in your storage unit individually, garnering a higher price and allowing you to keep items that hold sentimental value.

Stacey A. Giulianti, Esq., who heads up Exclusive Gavel, understands that auctioning your belongings to pay a debt is often an embarrassing proposition. With tact and understanding, Mr. Giulianti will do everything possible to make the process as stress-free as it can be. Exclusive Gavel will organize the auction, making sure that all details are in order and that the legal requirements are met. As a licensed Florida attorney, Mr. Giulianti knows the intricacies of auction law and can make sure that your storage auction is in order.

Storage Facility Owners: Storage Auctions Provide a Means to Recover Losses When Tenants Fail to Pay

Though selling tenants’ belongings is something most storage facility owners would prefer not to do, timely rental payments are essential to profitability, and delinquent bills must be paid to keep business running. Exclusive Gavel is well-versed in the laws surrounding the process a storage facility owner must follow prior to the auction of a storage unit—from documenting collection attempts to pre-lien filing to auction—to avoid a wrongful sale lawsuit. In addition to providing guidance with regard to the legal steps involved, Exclusive Gavel will conduct the auction with skill and finesse to command the highest price possible. Between the burgeoning pop culture excitement of storage auctions and the skill of the auctioneer, storage facility owners can expect storage auctions nowadays to yield significant foot traffic, and as a result, higher auction sale prices.
