The Wisconsin Self Storage Association (WSSA) has partnered with Rummage Marketplace to offer members discounted pricing when listing their lien sales on the website. The basic listings cost is $25; WSSA members pay $10.
I have used Rummage Marketplace and had great success getting more buyers to my auctions, said WSSA President Kurt Jacobsen. Before using the website, Jacobsen said bids were low, ranging from $50 to $200 per unit. It was frustrating, he added. Now I get much better attendance at my sales. More important, Im getting substantially higher bids for my units.
Other storage owners are experiencing similar results as Kurt and, hopefully, this offering will be a further incentive to join the WSSA, said Chris Hitler, founder of Rummage Marketplace.
The Wisconsin Self Storage Association was founded in 2002 and currently has more than 220 members.
Rummage Marketplace was launched in 2009 as a marketing tool for storage operators to improve buyer attendance at lien sales and generate higher sale prices of storage units.
