Westbelt Storage, a Columbus self-storage facility near Hilliard, Ohio, will conduct a public auction Saturday, Sept. 18. The contents of seven storage units will be sold to the highest bidder.
A self-storage auction is conducted to sell the personal property of storage customers who do not pay their rent. “Unfortunately, some of our customers hit hard times, and for one reason or another decided to abandon their personal belongings,” said Kurt Novak, general manager.
Buyers are allowed to inspect storage units from the outside only. They must buy the whole storage unit. The buyer is also obligated to remove the items within 24 hours from the self-storage facility. This auction is cash only and there are no warranties made by the facility. The auction begins at 11 a.m. at Westbelt Storage.
