I’ve definitely seen the show you’re talking about, but I honestly thought that it was just a gimmick for the show. I had no idea that these auctions actually happen, and that people could do that on their own. It does seem like it would be a good side hustle, and I have definitely been looking for something to make some extra money on the side. I’ll have to look into this a bit more closely to see how viable it would be for me. I’ll definitely keep in mind that not all units will have something super valuable in them, too.

In my experience, most facilities give you 48 hours to have the unit cleared out and left in a “broom clean” condition (i.e. swept out). If you don’t get your stuff out, of if you choose to cherry pick a few items and leave the rest, then the facility can reclaim the locker and it would most likely be auctioned off again. You’d also most likely be banned from participating in future auctions held at that facility, or run by the auction house you dealt with. Lockers Denver Colorado
