StorageTreasures.com, a website designed for self-storage auction hunters, has past the 500,000 member mark in just over two years, company officials announced. The website began by focusing on self-storage auction information, schedules and updates, but has expanded to include online training for buyers. Future plans call for additional free services and pay options, including features to help members sell and profit from the items they acquire at storage auctions, garage sales and flea markets, the company said in a press release.
The company also recently launched a new version of its educational video training series for storage-auction hunters, pickers and garage-sale resellers looking to increase their income. The series features “Storage Wars” cast members Dan and Laura Dotson, from American Auctioneers, who have been featured on the A&E television show since its inception in 2010. Fellow cast member Nabila Haniss is also featured throughout the series.
"Reaching half a million members is an accomplishment we're really proud of. A huge thanks goes out to our investors, our team here, the storage facilities that participate on our site, Dan and Laura Dotson, and many others who have helped make it happen," said Lance Watkins, president. “We're excited to roll out our new features this summer, which will help us make good on the promise to help people buy and sell for profit, whether their items are from a storage auction, a yard sale or around the house."
StorageTreasures.com is a free storage-auction locator and self-storage 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.
