We are over two decades of professional auction service specializing in storage locker auctions in the St. Louis and surrounding Missouri area.
We do not operate an auction house, so we do not compete against our bidders.
Our business was here before Storage Wars and Auction Hunters, so we have the experience you need to get started in your ventures and to keep going. Our website is filled with information for the beginning buyers.
For the experienced buyers, please visit the Schedule page for list of auctions after viewing the rules for auction listed below.

You are no longer allowed at the auctions.
This list above is people who bought and did not clean out their locker. The true purpose of the auction is providing the storage company a means to empty the unit. If you can not follow the rules, you are not welcome at the sale. This list is an effort to keep from charging everyone an extra clean out deposit.
Simple enough, finish what you start.
PS I have a few people question this idea of the unwelcome list. The difference is I am notifying you ahead of time that I will do this if you do not follow the rules. In the court cases that a few of you have seen, the person was barred without previous knowledge this would happen to them. You have been informed this is will happen if you can not follow the rules. Also as you watch court shows, state laws differ from state to state. What Judge Judy says does not always pertain to Missouri Law. Once again, just clean out the unit you purchase and you will not have to worry about this list.
PLEASE NO CALLS BEFORE 8:00 AM OR AFTER 8:00 PM ON NON-AUCTION DAYS
SO WE MAY ENJOY OUR FAMILY TIME.

PARKING AND ATTENDANCE
ALL PLEASE READ!!!
Please park on the company's lot, not in the few spaces in front of the offices. Managers need these spaces to continue doing their business during the auctions. And, yes, auction crew usually parks in front.
MOVE YOUR BODY OUT OF THE WAY OF MOVING VEHICLES.
This will always be a problem, I don't know why someone will stand there and just not move.
ONCE YOU ARE IN AN AUCTION, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO LEAVE UNTIL AUCTION IS OVER.....Period!
Managers lock the gates for security. I need managers with me during the auction process. It holds up the auction if we have to wait for them to return.
CHILDREN...Don't mind them and summer coming, who can afford a sitter? I understand. However, if they are yelling, crying, etc. please move away from the auction crowd. It makes it difficult on everyone to hear.
All of these little things will help keep some peace at the auctions. Auctions are pretty simple. Please help keep them that way.
