    Good Luck Jeanette! At my present facility, I have had two units in a year go to auction. At former facility, I worked there for five years and had four auctions of four units.

    Feel free to PM me if you would like my "secret" - anyone. I don't mind sharing. and it WORKS!
    Can you email me at I don't know how to PM on here.

        In Ohio we have to have an auction there is nothing that states if the value of the contents is $XXX we can dispose by mean of choice. The auction just has to be deemed commercially reasonable as long as 3 independent bidders are present. If no bids are received on a unit as long as at least 3 bidders are present then we can dispose of the items any way we choose.
        Our law in michigan reads almost identical. "Auction shall be conducted in a commercially reasonable manner". In the note section is reads, "Michigan requires that the sale be held in a commercially reasonable manner which implies that there must be a group of active independant bidders present".

        My question is how many is considered a group? I think 3 but I'm not sure.

            We use storEDGE and have been asking for the feature since 2014 when we switched from sitelink stand alone. We were told that they would be adding the feature soon, and that has yet to ever happen. We offer RV Storage, and so say if a customer comes in on the 15th but won't need it until the 1st, we...

            My wife and I ran a property down in Dallas. We were right down town in a very bad part of Dallas. Lots of transients and drugs were rampant. The reason I mention all of that is it did not make a difference to us. When we left one my homeless people that I had to bicker with fairly often came up...
