If the winning bid is higher than the default balance, we must send the remaining funds (above what tenant owes to Harrisburg Mini Storage) to the tenant.
If the auction brings in more money than what the tenant owes, and we are unable locate the client to refund the proceeds, we must send the balance (above what's owed to Harrisburg Mini Storage) to the unclaimed property division of the Pennsylvania State Treasury department.
Harrisburg Mini Storage does not profit in any way from a storage auction. We follow the rules set forth in PA Statute 73 P.S. § 1901.
It's not in our goal to auction units. We prefer that our tenants abide by the terms of the rental agreement they've signed.
