THEREFORE, the Seller agrees, subject to the terms and conditions stated above and below, to utilize this Service. Use of the Service constitutes acceptance of such terms as well as the SelfStorageAuction.com Terms of Use consented to by creating a SelfStorageAuction.com account.


1. Legality of the Online Collection of Bids for the Sale of Unit(s)

The Seller understands and agrees that by hosting this Service, Company does not represent or warrant the legality of the online collection of bids for self-storage units. The Company's provision of the Service does not constitute legal advice regarding the use of the Service within the Seller's state. The Seller understands that they are responsible for consulting with their own legal counsel regarding the Seller's use of this Service. The Seller understands that in order to legally collect bids online, the Seller must adjust their lien procedures accordingly, particularly in regards to the legal notice for the Seller's auction. The Seller agrees to seek legal advice regarding the necessary modifications to their current procedures, forms, letters, and notices.

SelfStorageAuction.com is a disclosed agent for the self-storage facility that is selling the property listed for sale. As such SelfStorageAuction.com is a conduit for the sale only. SelfStorageAuction.com is not a party to the sale.

2. The Seller's Obligations in Listing the Unit(s)

The Seller confirms that the Seller has complied with all state laws with regard to the lien Units the Seller lists on the Service, including but not limited to the lien procedure, the inventory of Units, notices to the tenant, public advertisement of the collection of bids and the sale, and the disposition of protected property.

The Seller agrees to clearly specify if any Unit(s) are not delinquent or are Units containing donated items to be auctioned for a charitable cause.

The Seller confirms that all information supplied regarding the Seller's identity is true and accurate. In the event the Seller provides false or misleading information regarding the personal property in the Unit(s), or the lien status of the contents, the Seller shall be liable for all costs in relation to any dispute raised by the Buyer.

The Seller further confirms it is properly authorized to sell the personal property in the Unit(s) and that it is able to transfer full ownership of the personal property in the Unit(s) to the Buyer free from any other claim.

3. The Description of the Unit(s)


The Seller remains solely responsible for any statements which the Seller makes about the Units(s) or their contents, the lien status of the Units, or any description of any personal property in the Unit(s) including but not limited to references as to its ownership, origin, date, age, value, or authenticity. The Seller must satisfy itself that the information listed online regarding all personal property in the Unit(s), is true and accurate. The Company has absolute discretion to refuse to list any personal property in the Unit(s) for any reason.


4. Terms of the Seller's Sale to the Buyer


This Service is solely for the online collection of bids, in order to make public storage auctions held at self-storage facilities more widely accessible to the public while minimizing the inconvenience to the storage facility. Therefore, all terms that do not need to be established by the Company for the proper functioning of the Service, shall be left to the Seller to delineate with the Buyers or to negotiate with the Buyer. For example, the Company shall not establish reserve/minimum bid requirements, an expanded deadline (beyond the 72 hours specified) to empty the contents of the Unit(s), access to the Unit(s) by the Buyer, or timing or method of payment by the Buyer.


5. Online Bidding


Seller agrees that the Company cannot guarantee a Buyer's commitment or ability to pay especially because the Company cannot know in advance the amount the Buyer will bid. The Company is not liable to the Seller if a Buyer cannot pay the amount due or does not contact the Seller to make payment. The Seller however may establish a reserve/minimum bid at their sole discretion.
The Seller is not obligated to accept any bids and may reject all bids. However, if the Seller accepts a bid on a Unit, the Seller must accept the highest bid made on that Unit in order to comply with state law. The seller reserves the right to cancel a unit at any time, for any reason.
