Helping Auction Buyers Succeed:

Unique Features and Benefits for Buyers:

  • Allows buyers to bid from the comfort of their couches or on the go from their smartphone devices, desktops, or tablets eliminating the time commitments and travel expenses that traditional auctions entail
  • Buyers can sign up for free and immediately start browsing auctions without entering any payment information until they’re ready to place a bid.
  • The system is the first of its kind on the market to accept digital and crypto currency like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, or Litecoin, for the customary 10% buyer’s administrative fee on a winning bid after an auction ends.
  • With the ability for sellers to list auctions both locally and nationally, makes it easier than ever for buyers to diversify their auction purchasing and reselling strategy, enabling them to maximize their resale success and ultimately their profits.
  • Fast turnaround times mean that buyers will start seeing their resale profits sooner and accelerate their auction buying process.

How it Works for Buyers:

Once an auction closes and administrative fees have been collected, the system will automatically sends both the buyer and seller emails with a unique identification number as proof of purchase. Buyers then have 24 hours to bring cash to the facility, unless of course the facility states in their terms of service that they accept credit cards, to pay for and clean out the unit.

Unique Features and Benefits for Sellers:

  • solves one of sellers’ top concerns when it comes to auctioning unclaimed storage units with our automatic lien generator built directly into the website.

Top level and operational managers can monitor live bidding activity, as well as take advantage of the system’s reporting tools to help measure their performance over time.
  • Third party facilities and organizers can auction their unclaimed storage units online while maintaining a higher level of anonymity and safety while utilizing the fast-acting auction market.
  • Using the system ensures that the dignity of the live auction, as well as the dignity of the storage facility is also never compromised.
