If you’re someone who’s always on the lookout for that rare collectible or that special piece of furniture that’s no longer being manufactured, then you may enjoy attending estate sales and property auctions on a frequent basis. As people liquidate their estates or sell property, you can be on hand to find those unique items that otherwise would be hard to find.

At EZ Storage® in Detroit, we can help you store all of those antiques and collectibles that you purchase at estate sales and auctions. With one of our self-storage units, you can keep everything safe until you decide what you’re going to do with it!

Artwork, Furniture, and More!

dreamstime_xxl_23277179As an antiques buyer, you’re always looking for great deals on artwork, furniture, and more. An estate sale or auction be the perfect spot to land a bargain on a unique item, unless of course the item is very old or very rare. You may have to outbid the person next to you, but you may have a better sense of the true value of the piece, and your plan is to resell the item at a higher price than what you bought it for.

However, until you can find someone to buy the items that you’ve purchased, you’ll need somewhere to store everything. Your garage or basement is probably not the best place for a valuable painting or an heirloom that’s 100 years old. A climate-controlled storage unit in one of our facilities will be a better option, even if you’re only going to store the items for a month or two.

Buying Everyday Items

You may go to estate sales and auctions to find rare items, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t open to purchasing everyday items such as dining sets or electronics. There may be a modern piece of furniture or a stereo system that’s very valuable, and if you’re able to buy it at a reasonable price, then you can resell it for a profit, or keep it and use it in your own home.

Bringing them home can cause them to get mixed in with your belongings, or they could end up in a spot where they’re at risk of being damaged.

We have several locations across the greater Detroit area, and each facility has the options and the amenities that you need.
