Storage Unit Auctions
Storage Unit Auctions at Security Public Storage
At Security Public Storage, our business is protecting the belongings of our customers. We take this trust to heart. We don’t want to auction storage units or for our customers to lose their belongings. A storage auction is a last resort for making space available to a paying customer. We never profit from an auction — if we collect more than the customer owes, we refund them the difference.
Storage auctions are a painful process — ideally, we would have no auctions. Every time we have an auction, the customer loses their property and we lose the customer — it’s a lose/lose situation. The purpose of the auction is simply to recoup what is owed and nothing more.
Online Self Storage Auction Schedules
At SPS, we employ a dedicated auctioneer to conduct all of our own storage unit auctions in-house, which is unique in the storage business. In 2020, we switched to online, contact-less auctions for better Covid-19 safety. We are no longer booking in-person auctions.
Below are links to the upcoming online storage unit auction schedules. You can also pick up a printed copy of the auction schedule at our self-storage facilities.
