    We all need a little extra space, a private sanctuary where we can let our hair down (or up) for a minute, but for most of us privacy is at a premium around the house. Maybe you’ve got a family, you’re still living the college lifestyle, or the entire cast of Eight Is Enough is staying with you until ABC renews their contract.

    self storage finders storage auctions

    Heat waves shimmer on the tarmac. A zillion metallic garage-style doors disappear into the horizon. The restless crowd moves back and forth. A woman who could easily pass for your sweet Aunt Mabel suddenly turns her stink-eye on you when you inadvertently take a step forward.

    “Back off,” she hisses. “I don’t mind getting arrested for assault again.”

    A young, lanky guy whose tattoos cover every inch of his skin which, due to the hot weather and, apparently, his disdain for clothing, is pretty copious.
