Lien Sales

Occasionally Apple Storage must dispose of property in order to pay for past due rents. When this occurs, Apple Storage follows the requirements of the law to protect each tenant’s rights. Lien sales start at 10:00 AM CST on a Friday morning. The exact dates will be published in the Appleton Post Crescent and Door County Advocate, including a brief description of the goods to be sold. We will also post lien sale information here however, the Post Crescent and Door County Advocate are the official notice.

If you would like to receive e-mail notice of upcoming lien sales, please send us an e-mail with the words “lien sale list” in the subject. We will attempt to send you a timely notice of the sale(s).

We conduct a lien sale as follows:

  • 15 minutes before the sale the gate is opened and units to be sold are open for inspection. During inspection Buyers must take care to not damage anything in a unit.
  • We will pick a unit to be sold first. We reserve the right to establish a minimum bid on any unit.
  • If you choose to bid on the unit, you will receive from us a slip of paper. You write your name and bid on the paper and hand it to us. The highest bid wins. We do not disclose the bid amounts to anyone.
  • You will pay us the amount of the bid and a $75 cleaning deposit. The unit must be totally empty and broom clean by the Sunday following the sale. We do not provide dumpsters or any assistance so, you must move everything off site yourself. If you have complied with these terms you will receive your $75 deposit within a week after the unit is empty.
  • If you need more time, you may sign a standard lease for a period of time agreed by us. Usually it will be to the end of the current month.
