On-site auction company Schur Success Auction Services set a personal record by auctioning more than 1,500 self-storage units in 2009. Formerly known as Ray Fenter & Associates, the company has been providing auction services to self-storage facilities for more than 25 years and really targeted that niche during the past six years. The company now serves more than 100 self-storage locations with auction services as well as lock-cutting and inventory services.
“In 2009, we experienced more than 16 percent growth in storage auctions over 2008,” said Rich Schur, chief operating officer. “Although the growth was somewhat less than projected, it does mark five consecutive years of double-digit growth.”
Rich is the 2010 Colorado State Champion Auctioneer and serves as the second vice president of the Colorado Auctioneers Association. He is a Certified Benefit Auctioneer Specialist.
Founded in Arvada, Colo., nearly 30 years ago by Ray Fenter, Schur Success is the exclusive auctioneer for the city and county of Denver. Schur conducts more than 200 auctions each year. The company is a member of the Colorado Auctioneers Association, the National Auctioneer Association, the Southern Colorado Better Business Bureau and the Colorado Self Storage Association.
