Do not believe everything that you see on television. Of course those people who claim they are doing reality television cannot be further from the truth. What seems to be reality to some is not quite reality to others. For the simple fact some of the things that happen on television are not things that would happen in real life. Naturally in order to get ratings, you will see that some storage is embellished just a bit to gain the attention of their viewers. Self storage seems to not have been able to duck the limelight.
Storage auctions seem to be on the rise with all of the publicity and realty television shows. Usually the ones purchasing the units are businesses that have a store front that they can sell their items out of. You do not see the individuals who buy the units or how they deal with their newly accumulated items. Many individuals sell items online in an attempt to make money. If you are like the average person you probably do not have room in your home or garage to store your inventory. A caller I spoke with Saturday rents a self storage unit close to their house so they can keep everything organized. As an item sells on line, they visit their unit; pull the item and then send it to the buyer.
Many people run their business out of their self storage units. They find that it is a cheap way in order to have a store front without the store front. Typically this kind of business is being run by their selves or with the help of one other employee. This way they can keep their bottom line profit intact. The business owners want to manage their business efficiently to where they are not spending unnecessarily. The better they can advertise, sell and distribute the more efficiently their business will run out of their storage unit. If they grow big enough, people might then consider the idea of having an actual store front so people can browse their inventory in person.
