StorageStuff.Bid Attends the Northeast Storage Expo

For the first time, StorageStuff.Bid attended the Northeast Storage EXPO. This was a mash-up of the Connecticut Self Storage Association, and the Massachusetts Self Storage Association. The EXPO took place in the Grand Pequot Tower of Foxwoods Casino in Ledyard, Connecticut from October 7-8th, 2015. The tower was beautiful, the reception hall was grand, and the hotel rooms had a skyscraper view of all the trees and amazing leaves changing color, all seen from 20 floors above. Since Florida is the home of StorageStuff.Bid, and many of us who work here grew up here, we don't have the luxury of seeing the leaves change color in the fall. Also, what is fall? Here, we have Summer, and Winter... though our winter is barely seen as a winter according to the northerners. I don't know what my fascination with the leaves changing color might be; I just know that it is a truly beautiful sight to be seen.
We had a very good turn out while we were on the floor. A lot of people are interested in the world of "online auctions" and we had all the information that they wanted to hear. Since everyone of us who work here have had years and years of experience in the self storage industry, it's not a surprise to our customers that we have all the information they need to hear. That's a big key point that sets us apart from a lot of other online auction "portals". Even though we are a "portal", we are here to assist you in any shape or form possible, whether it is about your legal ad, or about our site. We are very proud of our licensed auctioneers, and our customer service team. We will work hand and foot... okay, maybe not hand AND foot... but we will work diligently and effectively to make sure your needs as a customer are met. Of course, everyone who visited our booth was truly interested, and I hope they at least give us a try! One could hope...
On the brighter side, even if they weren't as interested as I might have imagined in my own head (day dreamer), we had fun gifts to hand out called "fun badges" that are always a hit. They stick onto your "name badge". You know, the ribbons that stick on to your badge, "EXHIBITOR", "SPONSOR", "BOARD MEMBER", etc? Yeah, those boring old things. We at StorageStuff.Bid like to spice things up a little bit. Our fun badges had phrases on it like "WORKAHOLIC", "OFFICIAL SOMETHING", "BORED MEMBER", etc. You get the picture. All in all, it was a great experience to be at our first Northeast Storage EXPO, the turn out was great; and the weather and scenery were a big plus too!
