Storage Auction Cash


I am able to share my extensive experiences and answer questions covering: Storage unit auction buying/selling as a business opportunity; how to find storage unit auctions; storage unit auction protocol and procedures; what to look for, how to bid and other techniques; the mechanics of selling for profit; questions on how to start your own storage unit auction business; and supply resources for additional support.

Experience in the area

I hold a seminar entitled, "Buying & Selling with Auctions at Storage Lien Sales" twice a year; run a blog called Storage Auction Cash; provide consulting to storage facilities on conducting proper lien sales; and maintain a subscription service alerting subscribers to upcoming storage auctions. I have my own business reselling items bought from storage auctions, which I have been doing for over 25 years.


B.S. in Business Administration with an emphasis on marketing.
