Storage unit companies regularly seize abandoned goods and auction them off in an effort to reclaim some of their lost profits. Many online retailers are cashing in, using these auctions as a product source for their e-businesses. According to enthusiast Blaine Herbst, founder of http://StorageAuctionSecrets.com, “You can pick up an entire storage unit filled with things for a couple hundred bucks.” Finding these auctions can be as easy as looking in the yellow pages under “storage units” and calling to see when they conduct their sales.

What Questions Should I Ask?
