StorageTreasures/StorageBattles Signs Exclusive National Agreement With Pop-A-Lock

Will Eliminate the Inconvenience and Liability of Cutting Locks and Taking Photos of Storage Auction Units

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 04/01/14 -- Auctions of abandoned self-storage units made famous through reality television shows such as Storage Wars, Auction Hunters and Storage Hunters are moving to a new battleground -- online.

Storage Treasures/Storage Battles, North America's largest and fastest growing online self-storage auction company, has partnered with Pop-A-Lock to offer customers lock cutting, photo taking and inventory services. The exclusive agreement with the nation's largest locksmith network will streamline services for Storage Treasures/Storage Battles managers and their customers.

"This added service will bring convenience and a time-saving option to self-storage facility managers who no longer desire to cut their own locks, take pictures and inventory their storage units in preparation for sale," said James Grant, CEO of StorageTreasures/StorageBattles. "This will also reduce their liability, as an insured third party will be performing this duty while being observed and witnessed by the facility manager."

"Pop-A-Lock is the preferred provider to numerous corporate strategic partners. Our large footprint, prompt response, latest technology, and top quality make us the first choice for security. We look forward to working with Storage Treasures and their innovative, industry leading marketing and methodology," said Don Marks, CEO of Pop-A-Lock.

StorageTreasures/StorageBattles has more than 4,000 self-storage facilities that have signed up to hold online auctions on its website -- from large publicly traded companies to independent operators. With a database of 800,000 registered buyers nationwide, StorageTreasures/StorageBattles averages more than 4,000 online auctions a month and expects to double that in 2014. With the national Self-Storage Association estimating there are 2 million auctions a year, the potential for growth in the online auction market is phenomenal.
