You’ll also need to bring a padlock, and probably a flashlight as well. Units are dark and the flashlight can help you see what’s inside. That’s kind of important if you’re trying to quickly estimate the value of the unit. The padlock is in case you win. If you do, the locker is immediately yours. Close the sliding door and lock it up till you’re ready to come back with your truck and trailer to unload it.

In total, I bought just over a dozen or so units. Never once did I find an antique gun, some rare collection, fine artwork or valuable jewelry. In one particular unit I thought I’d found some real sterling silverware – that gave me a momentary rush, and it would have been a nice score, but it ended up being a silver plated set, not the real stuff (still, I was able to sell the set on eBay for $100, plus shipping).
Not only do you spend huge chunks of your weekend driving all over town to attend auctions and bid on units, but the real work begins once you’ve finally outbid everyone else and win the auction (which always left me feeling queasy. I’d wonder why everyone else stopped bidding and wonder if I’d just overbid? Did the others see something I missed? The mind games were endless in this business.). Lockers Denver Colorado
