Storage auctions in California are as close as your own city. They are held every day, even on weekends. All you have to do is visit your local public storage and inquire. They will either give you a flyer or let you know who the auctioneer is so you can get on his email list. They are friendly and they need as many people as possible to attend upcoming auctions.
If you have ever been curious about auctions, storage auctions are the thing to check out. You can do this part time or full time to make extra income. If you learn how to bid, and win your first unit, all you need to do is learn where the best place is to sell the valuables. But, there are not just auctions in California, these kinds of auctions are in your home town no matter what state you live in.
If you win the bid on a small locker, you could sell the contents from your own garage sale if your city permits this. I have listed items on internet auction sites and in small ads online. I have found anything from silver coins, and jewelry, to chandeliers in storage units I bid on and won.
This is a great business for anyone who wants to work out of their home. You may never get rich at it, but one can earn a good living from it if he learns all the ins and outs of this type of business. For example, I have made anywhere from a $100 for a few hours work to over $600 a day. It all depends upon how much effort you are willing to put into it.
It’s truly a low overhead business with little or no start up cost. It is handy though to at least have a pick up truck to haul everything from the storage unit to your garage, but you could rent a trailer instead and hook it up to your car. You can keep this business small or make it as large as you want.
This business could be for you if you are creative about selling, have a business mind, like to haggle and make deals, love surprises, are a bit of a gambler, love the freedom of movement this type of business offers, don’t want a boss, tired of working in an unappreciated soul killing job, and desire to work from the comfort of your own home.
