Modern Day Treasure Hunting
With the upcoming release of yet another Pirates of the Caribbean movie, it isn't too terribly difficult to picture swashbuckling and treasure hunting adventures. While the days of X marks the spot and digging up a chest full of gold doubloons is long gone, there is an opportunity to find your own container full of gold in the form of storage unit auctions. Even though the chances of finding an absolute treasure trove is about as likely as winning the lottery, there is certainly the ever-present opportunity to make some extra money with a little hard work and dedication. One of the biggest keys to making sure that you are able to turn a profit is to make sure that you have a plan for what you are going to do with the items in the storage unit that you purchase. whether you are planning on using the items for a new DIY project (such as the ones that can be found on this blog.) or trying to flip the items for a quick buck, it is of the utmost importance that you know your market for resale and/or have a project in mind that will use your newly acquired items.
Another key tip is to make sure that you plan for how you are going to remove the items from the storage unit as most storage unit facilities require that you have the items removed from the premises in a relatively short window. Make sure to contact some friends or relatives and prepare for the possibility of a long day and some heavy lifting. Nothing worth having is ever easy and the work required to clean out some of these storage units can make it all the more rewarding when you manage to uncover that diamond in the rough.
