For many, the allure of storage container auctions comes from the mystery of the container’s contents. At these events, auction-goers are invited to place bids on abandoned and/or locked containers, usually with little or no hint to what might be inside. Past discoveries have included cars, priceless antiques and jewelry, fine art, currency and more. This exciting auction format draws hundreds of thousands of bidders each year, each hoping to uncover the find of a lifetime.
AuctionZip’s extensive listings cover all states and provide detailed information on upcoming storage facility auctions. The site serves as a portal to connect prospective bidders directly to auctioneers. In addition to storage auctions, AuctionZip also provides thousands of listings for general auctions around the country, with categories including fine art, automobiles, tools, antiques, jewelry, agricultural equipment and more. Hundreds of the estate, fine art and other auctions are also live online through AuctionZip Live, allowing users to bid in real time from anywhere in the world.
