Tools Of The Mini Storage Buying Trade
Stories of remarkable success abound. Numerous auction buyers recall the experience of beginning their careers with a few hundred dollars and parleying their success into annual incomes of six and even seven figures per year. In the world today, the successful auction buyer must have some basic equipment in addition to whatever start up money they can raise to get into the business.
The first item on the list is a computer, and that computer which has become a necessity of modern life must have internet connection. The computer will enable you to gain knowledge and assistance from this very website as well as determine your avenue to resell your auction purchases. Whether you choose to sell on EBay, Craigslist, or even advertise on sites listing yard sales and flea markets, you must be computer savvy.
You better have a vehicle suitable for transporting the goods that you buy. Most auctions require that you remove the merchandise immediately following purchase. Sometimes if you are a known customer, and the storage facility is willing, you may be granted a day or two of grace following the auction in order to remove the property. But that is not the general rule. The general rule is, you bought it, you own it, you take it with you.
Unless you are one of the world's strongest people, it is advisable that you have an associate with you to help remove the merchandise and load it into your vehicle. To make the job more efficient, consider purchasing tools such as a dolly, blankets or tarps to wrap goods in, ropes to tie merchandise down, and other utilitarian items such as heavy duty tape, bubble wrap, and boxes. Facility offices usually sell such goods as well.
Once you have loaded your merchandise, what are you going to do with it? Perhaps you have rented storage units of your own to hold your goods prior to resale. Or, are you planning to allocate space in your garage, your residence or your place of business to hold your goods? You also may be able to work out a short term rental at the auction facility.
These are the essential three categories you must be prepared to handle. In short they are a computer, a vehicle equipped with someone capable of heavy lifting, and finally a destination to store your purchases.
