Potential bidders wait in line to get a quick glimpse of a storage unit on the auction block before bidding on it during a storage locker auction at the Solano Storage Center in Fairfield Friday morning. The last time he was high bidder at Solano Storage Center, he paid more than $2,000 for a 10-by-30-foot unit — full of e-waste materials. And since the Martinez resident makes his living from buying at such auctions and selling what he can at a Concord flea market, Craigslist and on eBay, he was hoping to find something that would help recoup the loss from the previous buy. Dehaas was one about 75 people who attended a recent auction at the storage center. There were four units up for bid. Auctioneer John Cardoza had already auctioned four units in Rio Vista before arriving in Fairfield. Each was offered the chance to walk by and peruse a unit that seemed to have mostly clothes and toys. Working with Cardoza was his wife Donna Cardoza, who worked 25 years as a 911 dispatcher before retiring. She stood at the end of a long line, waiting for a peek inside the second and third units, which were right next to each other. With everyone back in the main hall, Cardoza began the bidding, confusing the contents of the two. Then, it was down the stairs and out the building to a much bigger unit, 10-by-35, piled high with a variety of items.
Alvarez said his plans were to go through the unit and find things his three daughters, who are 28, 35 and 38, could use.
He stopped by the office to get the combination on the lock to open the unit. He was heading on to the Vacaville auctions. And, if there’s still any money left, it goes to the county, where the renter has a year to claim it, Morris said. While some may question the need for hiring an auctioneer, Morris said it’s the only way to go as the auctioneer assumes the liability.
Cardoza and his crew return to Fairfield on Wednesday for an auction at the StorageMart Self Storage on Walters Road.

Afterward, he was headed to three storage facilities in Vacaville before wrapping up his day in Dixon. Asked whether he’s found something unique among his storage auction purchases, he said it depends on what one defines as unique.
So, when the door was opened, there sat a man who wasn’t going to let his goods go without a fight. Justin Clark, assistant manager of Solano Storage Center, stepped up to correct him before any bids were placed.
A few weeks ago I went to my first one and it was fun, but I did not end up with a locker for various reasons.

Yes, there is bidding, but for the most part everyone is friendly and things aren't so heated. I could see a table without the glass, four chairs stacked up and what looked like an organ. Second, there are rarely super jackpot treasures found in a unit, unlike on the show where almost every fourth unit seems to hold gold bars or priceless antiques. Third, buying storage units is a lot of work and you can't always get what you know something is worth when trying to resell it.
