    We are first time self-storage owners. We've come across our first unit that needs to be auctioned. We're aware of the legal process and steps needed, but were wondering how you all proceed with your auctions. Do you use services? Has anyone done an auction entirely online? We are 100% remotely operated. We've looked into using Locker Fox but were curious if anyone had any other suggestions?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Donald,

    We use StorageTreasures.com for online auctions and have been happy with them. We do not hold any onsite auctions anymore. There are lots of online auctions companies now so you can compare them but I looked at StorageTreasure's activity in my area and was sold.

    We use iBid4storage.com, their customer service is wonderful.  They will walk you through every step of the process and will help you contact the bidder if they didn't show up.  We have used them for the past four years and have been very satisfied with the service they provide.
