UK storage auctions

No doubt you’ve seen the popular storage auction TV shows such as Storage War’s where buyers turn up on the day and bid for abandoned self storage units at auction.

Well, here at Storage Bidder that’s just what we do! We have the UK’s leading storage unit auctioneers on our books and travel the length and breadth of the country performing our unique storage auctions at storage companies far and wide.

How does it work you ask? Well, once one of our partner storage companies notifies us of one or more storage units up for auction we arrange a date to hopefully coincide with a number of other available units in the local area and hot foot it down there usually at a weekend to ensure our auction bidders can make it. Once we’re on site the storage auctions work pretty much like you’ve seen on TV. We cut the locks, allow you as a buyer a short time to view the unit… but not touch! Then we go under the hammer!!!

The storage auctions bids usually start from as little as £10 or £20 but of course could escalate quickly depending on what is stored in the unit. And just like you’ve seen on the TV shows, the highest bidder gets it!

As the winning bidder it is your responsibility to empty and clean your unit within a given time frame set by the storage company (usually within 48 hours) but remember, you bid to buy and not to cherry pick! At storage auctions you are bidding on the entire contents of the unit and not just the bits you want… it’s all or nothing!

Buying at our self storage auctions is by invite only but as we get busier and busier with more and more units available we are opening up our buyers list to more and more each week and all around the UK so if you’re interested in buying at storage auctions then register your interest here or download the app and if we are looking for more buyers in your area we’ll be in touch.

Get going, going, gone to a storage auction near you today!
