Do You Bring Your Significant Other To Auctions With You?

This is more a poll than anything else so please leave a comment in the comments section below with your answer but I also figured I'd share my experience with auctions as well.

When Storage Wars and other television shows came out as most of you know we saw a flood of people comming to the auctions where as in the past it was a handful of guys maybe 4-8 guys per auction. After the shows the crowds grew to hundreds.

It wasn't uncommon to see entire families comming to auctions, people bringing their kids and significant others to auctions. Most had to intention of buying anything, mostly just gawking or seeing what auctions were all about.

Part of me says this is a bad idea unless you and your significant other are business partners and involved in this venture together, if you're just bringing your SO to have a day out in the sun it's probably not the best idea.

To some people storage auctions are a novelty thing or a cool way to spend an afternoon but to many people storage aucitons are their job, how they make money, their livelihood. It's frustrating when you can't see units because people who have no intention of buying a unit are standing in front of it. Bringing guests to auctions who aren't going to be buying creates extra crowds which means its that much tougher to look at units, each facility takes that much more time because all these extra people have to view units.

I can understand people wanting to bring someone to the auction. Auction days are a lot of driving and can get lonely and boring so I can see the temptation to bring along a guest to spend the day with but it's not really the best things for making auctions easy, less crowded and quick. I often see people bring kids to auctions. Again, I can understand that you want to teach your kid business, money management and spend time with them and in many ways applaud that however if you are going to bring a guest to an auction make sure they are out of the way of real buyers.

Are Storage Auctions A Good Way To Make A Side Income?

I've seen a number of people lately asking if storage auctions are a good way to make a side income in addition to your regular 9-5 gig. The answer to that is yes and no, it depends on a number of factores.

First off most storage auctions are daytime during the week so if you work a typical 9-5 job your going to have a tough time making it to auctions unless you have a large number of Saturday auctions in your area or unless you're willing to take days off work to attend auctions. That is a frustrating thing to do as well as you're not always going to walk away with a unit and to take a day off work and spend a day running around to auctions to come home empty handed can be frustrating.

When I was doing auctions and working a 9-5 I typically at my day job had one weekday off per week and often worked Saturdays so I would use a normal day off during the week to attend auctions. Granted I didn't bring a unit home everyday but at least I wasn't taking a day off work on top of it.

I think many people have a wrong impression about storage auctions from the television shows. So I go buy a unit, take a few high dollar items to an expert, sell it to him and walk away with a few thousand dollars. We and other sites and blogs and forums have gone over this time and time again so it goes without saying but most of what your going to be getting in units is average household items you're not going to be able to sell easily or for big dollars. Most of the stuff is stuff which will need to be sold at garage sales or flea markets. I don't think most people are planning on waking up early on the weekends and spending their weekends sitting outside which is what you really have to do if you're trying to really give it a go at this business or make any money. The items which are high dollar and sell easily on ebay or Craigslist are few and far between.

I don't mean to discourage anyone from getting into storage auctions. It's actually a great business you can give a try without much startup money or commitment. Spend a couple hundred dollars on a unit, maybe even less, try to sell the stuff, if you have sucess try it again, if not maybe this game isn't for you. Storage Auctions can be a great way to make a side income however it does require a lot of time, effort and work, its not easy.

Should You Reupholster Furniture To Try To Sell It For More?

A commonly asked question among storage auction locker buyers is whether it's worth putting the time, money and effort into reupholstering an item hoping for a higher resale value.

My philosophy and strategy when it come to furniture or anything else is that rarely if ever am I willing to put additional money into an item. Stuff is hard enough to sell as is, let alone trying to squeeze out money on the item plus whatever you put into it. Also, when reupholstering something who's to even say the potential new owner will even like the fabric or pattern you pick out.

I personally as a buyer would much prefer getting a deal on an item and being able to fix or reupholster it to my taste or to fit my homes design vs what someone else chose. Also, furniture is a tough item to sell to begin with. Oftentimes I wind up having to basically give it away. For that reason I wouldn't invest any further into furniture than the cost of the unit unless it was something really unique or valuable like a Victorian piece of furniture or something along those lines and even then I'd be hesitant.

This is generally my attitude towards everything whether it's electronics, furniture, household good or anything else for that matter. Anything more than cleaning or replacing a missing screw and I find it's not worth the time or investment. Most people on Craigslist and other place want a steal and it's hard enough to make a buck just on top of whatever you paid for a unit let alone after putting additional money into a piece of furniture someone may or may not want. Unless it's a very valuable unique piece or antique I would be very hesitant to invest any money.

Guard Your ebay Account Closely, Once Selling Privileges Are Gone They are Gone...

A friend recently contacted me asking me some advice on an eBay situation he's run into. He knows I do a lot of selling on eBay and thought I might be able to help or offer some advice. So this friend of mine just recently got into storage auctions, hence his need for eBay to move some merchandise.

He's been on eBay for a few years, however wasn't the most professional eBay seller a few years back. He had a few 30 days listings up and went on vacation not thinking about them. He was late shipping out a number of items which got him a few negative feedback's and some low DSR scores. It wasn't until just recently he realized this when he wasn't able to list items on eBay. Apparently he called eBay and was told his account is permanently banned from selling yet he could still buy. He asked them to closeout the account to which they refused saying they could not otherwise he could potentially open future accounts without the negative stigma of his previous account so forced him to keep his account open.

He was asking me if there was any way to get eBay to reconsider. I have heard of instances like this in the past and pretty much knew it was impossible to come back from. Some people write articles online about how to get your selling privileges back but basically all acknowledge it's all but impossible but say why not give it a try. If you call up you'll probably be read scripted responses out of a binder and not really get any review or your account or suspension. You can ask that your suspension be reviewed but this normally has to go through a supervisor and it's nearly impossible to get one on the phone.

My friend is still trying to get his selling privileges back but hasn't had much luck to date. Some say to try to write past wrongs, issue refunds or send products although I don't see how this helps as with the eBay buyers and seller protection refunds have probably already been issued. Some say ask those who left low DSR scores to write eBay on your behalf but good luck with that, like someone is going to take time out of their schedule to write on the behalf of someone who they weren't satisfied with their service on eBay. I have a feeling this friend is just out his eBay account.

The moral to the story however is ship quickly, communicate with your buyers because once your eBay account is gone it's gone. Even if you think today, ah I don't really need eBay, if you change your mind and want to use it down the road you probably won't be able to.
