Hi. Nice article. Im curious about details regarding actions taken after a storage unit is bought. Lets say I win the auction and now have a storage unit full of stuff. Maybe I find a macbook and some disney toys and I want to keep them to sell. But maybe theres also some old mattresses or a giant old wardrobe in the unit that I personally dont fine any value in, because these items are large and heavy. What happens if I take the items I like (eg. the macbook and toys) and leave the items I dont want (like the old mattresses).
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. Denver Lockers Wilderness Exchange is within walking distance of Union and they require you leave a bag with them when you go into the store, they may be willing to stash your bag for a few hours. No guarantee on that, but an option if you can't find anything else. They are only open 10am-6pm on Sundays, so you may have to wait around a bit or pick it up early depending on when you get there and will be leaving.

Denver Lockers Don't count on finding this kind of thing. Some silly people put bombs in there. Our Homeland Security people try to head those things off. In Europe, especially GB, you can't even find a trash can on the sidewalks for the same reason. A worker at the train station told us to just throw it on the floor, the people in the green jackets will pick it up. Really. What a world we live in. Lockers Denver Colorado Most storage facilities host an auction every 1 to 3 months to recoup their losses from those renters that go with option number 2. At these auctions, which are open to the general public, seized lockers are opened up one at a time and potential bidders can take a look at what’s inside (nobody can go into the locker, and you can’t touch anything).
Terry, there are many storage unit places closer to the airport, but then of course you'd have to rent a car. DIA Self Storage, for example, is less than 10 miles away. You can google map Denver International Airport, then "search nearby" for "self storage units" if you think that's something you might want to do. http://www.coloradoselfstorage.com/ Lockers Denver Colorado
