Storage Auction Buyer Struck Gold at one of our Storage Unit Auctions!

What would run through your mind if you saw a unit filled with gold mining equipment? Well Bob North from Alaska figured that if he couldn't sell it he would just get into the mining business. But Bob is going to have to put his mining career on hold...the equipment sold. And it's a good thing too, because when you hear the story behind this unit you'll agree with me that Bob has a knack for storage auctions.

This was Bob's first unit. And he forked out $1,100 for it. More than he wanted to spend but in his words he just "had to get one." I've heard that before, but usually the stories don't end as well as this one did. Bob hauled his loot home and had leads on selling the equipment before the day was over. But that's not even the best part. What happened when Bob was packing the equipment into his garage is what really sets this unit apart.

Bob realized this gold mining equipment had not been cleaned. Normally things are better clean. But gold mining equipment is best dirty. Dirtier the better is what Bob discovered! At first Bob just started cleaning things up thinking they'd sell better clean. But then he discovered gold flakes. A phone call later he had a friend over to help him and they were processing the sand, rock, gold mix (I don't know, many everyone in Alaska knows how to do this!).

Bottom line? Bob sold the equipment for $4,000. He found a little over 120 grams worth of gold. That's $6,559 in gold. After the $1,100 he spent on the unit that's $9,459 profit. IN A DAY!

What else did Bob do that week? He went to a school auction & purchased a lot of 12 MacBook computers for a total of $600. He sold them all within days for $125 to $200 a piece.

As Bob said "Good week for Bob."

I couldn't agree more. There is opportunity all around us. You just have to go look for it, keep your wits about you to identify value, and sell smart.
