Storage Auctions Remain Strong

Emporia Storage Auction Entices Treasure Hunters on November 5

EMPORIA, Va. -- What's behind that door? What hidden gems could be on the other side? The treasure hunt is on as Emporia Storage has a unit auction scheduled at its three facilities in the city on Saturday, November 5, beginning at 10 a.m., rain or shine.

The auction will begin at Emporia Storage office headquarters at 315 West Atlantic Street, then move to the units on East Atlantic Street across from Georgia Pacific and finish up at its newest location at 623 South Main Street across from 7-11.

"The popularity of hit TV shows like 'Storage Wars' really generates a huge interest in storage unit auctions. And there’s no slowing down. The intrigue in storage auctions is as strong as ever, maybe even more so. There's such mystery. You never know what you're going to find," said auctioneer Carla Harris, known to Richmond radio listeners and TV audiences as "Carla Cash."

Multiple units will be auctioned off. During this sale, the belongings of delinquent storage units are auctioned off to the highest bidder to recoup the loss of rental fees.

"Quite a few units will be up for auction, so if you've ever been curious to check out a storage auction and see what happens, this is your chance. We have people come from all over Central and Southside Virginia and even other states to check out what's inside," said Boyce Adams, owner of Emporia Storage.

Gates open at 9 a.m. for registration. The auction begins at 10 a.m. In this absolute auction, units will be sold "as is, where is" and contents must be removed by the winning bidder by 6 p.m. that day.

"Storage auctions are a great way to buy, plus they’re fun. If you're a collector, someone who buys and sells, or simply a treasure hunter, you'll find something unique for sure," Harris said.

The auction will be conducted by Carla Lynn Sturgill (Carla Harris), Emporia, Va., 434-594-4406, VA License # 2907004352. For more information, call Carla or Emporia Storage at (434) 634-2919.
