StorageTreasures.com, an online resource for self-storage auctions, has launched an auction-scheduling widget that will allow self-storage facilities, state self-storage associations and auctioneers to display and update auction schedules, details and status updates online. The widget can be created in just minutes, and can be easily installed on any website without special coding, support, programming or expertise. It can be obtained by signing up for an account at StorageTreasures.com.
“Our goal was to create a tool to update self-storage auction info in the time it takes to send an e-mail,” said president and founder Lance Watkins. “Most storage facilities do not have a webmaster at their disposal to maintain online auction schedules, so we wanted to create a tool that any facility manager could easily use. Our development team nailed this one, building a tool that solves a problem many facilities deal with on a daily basis.”
StorageTreasures.com is a free storage-auction locator and facility finder covering the United States and Canada. The website offers auction schedules and site-specific guidelines for auction hunters and self-storage owners alike.
Earlier this year, StorageTreasures entered an agreement to receive investment funding and advisory services from three partners: A-1 Self Storage, RESCO Self Storage and Stor-All Storage. Executive managers from each company serve on the StorageTreasures Board of Directors. In addition, the company has partnered with the Self Storage Legal Network, the official legal counsel of the national Self Storage Association, and American Auctioneers, the auction company of “Storage Wars” reality TV fame.
