How to Search for an Auction
How to find an auction
There are two ways Bidders can find auctions on www.iBid4Storage.com:
- Search for “Current Auctions” by clicking the left-most “Current Auctions” button in the header. Just beneath the iBid4Storage logo.
- Find an auction in a specific area. Enter a specific location in the “Find Auction” search field for current auctions in the area.
Use Filters to Narrow Search Results
On the auctions page, there are a series of filters on the left hand column called “Filter Auction Results”
This is where a user can narrow the auction search results based on:
- Provinces or State
- Name of Seller
Bidders are able to sort through auctions by closing time and price. This improves overall visibility of closing lockers and potential deals.
