At a storage auction, you bid on contents within a storage unit based on what you can see from the entrance to the unit, so you may not know exactly what you are bidding on. Check local classified listings or call local storage facilities to ask the date and time of the next auction. Ask a representative days in advance about rules and details for the auction, such as arriving ahead of time to sign in. Some storage auctions are heavily attended, so the competition may be intense.
Users must be 18 years or older.   If the state the user is doing business in requires an auctioneer's license, the listing must be posted by a legally licensed auctioneer or an agent thereof.    If you are using the site as an agent of the auctioneer, you represent that you have the authority to act on the auctioneer's behalf.  For the purposes of this agreement , “Auctioneer”  will refer to any user whether an actual auctioneer or the auctioneer’s agent.
