IMPORTANT: ALL ATTENDEES AND BIDDERS MUST READ: By participating in the auction, each bidder and attendee agrees to be bound by the following Rules and Regulations:
1. The winning bidder (hereafter "Purchaser") buys the entire storage unit and all contents therein, unless otherwise noted in the posting. Purchaser is required to remove everything from the space and leave it in "broom swept" condition within 48 hours after the sale unless otherwise specified by the District Manager. Removal of goods is permitted only during posted office hours.
2. Purchaser shall return all photos, documents (e.g., birth certificates and passports), and other personal items ("Personal Property") to the property office. Purchaser agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Public Storage and the owner of the facility for all claims and demands relating to the Personal Property.
3. Purchaser forfeits all rights to all goods not removed within 48 hours, and agrees that Public Storage may, at its election, resell or dispose of the goods without further notice to Purchaser or any refund of monies paid.
4. The defaulted tenant has the legal right to cure the account thus canceling the auction up until the payment is received from the winning bidder, unless otherwise stated in the state's lien laws or by the storage facility.
5. Bidders may not collude or coordinate in any way.
6. All goods are sold "as is." There are no warranties or guarantees of any kind. Public Storage makes no warranty of title. Bids will be made based on visual inspection only.
7. Sales tax must be paid or Purchaser must present completed Resale or Exemption Certificates for every unit they purchase. The signature on each certificate must be original and currently dated. No posted or predated certificates will be accepted.
8. When the sale is transacted, Purchaser must complete a Certificate of Public Sale form at the property location and may pay by cash, credit or debit card.
