You will find that you can see many items in plain sight, standing at the door of the unit before you bid. I use this as my personal guide for buying storage units, or in this case, ones I want to stay away from. When these items are present my return on investment or my (ROI) seems to be much lower. Look for clues of what might be inside!
- Mirrors with pictures on them (like what you might see from the traveling Carnival)
- The same thing goes for pictures on blankets.
- Clothes thrown in trash bags. (this means a quick exit)
- Don’t get hung-up on flat screens and computer parts. These kind of items can be damaged and are hard to sell for a good return.
- Excessive trash
Tip: Know the cost to dispose trash. There is nothing worse then buying a storage unit full of trash and then having to pay to dispose of it.
