๐Ÿ”’ Best Practices for Preparing Self-Storage Units for Auction


Professional and Compliant Approach: At 3 Mile Storage Management, we uphold strict best practices when preparing units for auction. This process is not just about reclaiming space but ensuring everything is done ethically, legally, and effectively to maintain trust and transparency.


Detail-Oriented Preparation: Each step is crucial, from documenting the contents to promoting the auction, to ensure the process aligns with state lien laws and best industry practices.


๐ŸŽฅ Key Steps in Auction Preparation


  1. Document Thoroughly: Record a video of the entire process and take detailed photographs for online promotion, providing a clear and transparent account of the unit's contents.
  2. Secure Sealing: After preparation, seal the unit with a tamper-evident seal tag. This action reassures bidders that the unit has not been accessed or altered since preparation.
  3. Promotional Clarity: Use detailed images and descriptions in your online auction listings to attract potential buyers and ensure a fair bidding process.
  4. Legal Adherence: Most importantly, strictly adhere to the timelines and procedures outlined in your stateโ€™s lien laws to conduct the auction legally and ethically.
