Storage Auctions

At Kal-Haven Storage, we do everything possible to avoid the unnecessary sale of items inside of delinquent units. However, when units remain delinquent for an extended period of time, we hold self storage auctions. Below is a list of upcoming auctions.

Details on Michigan lien laws can be found in your lease when you rent a unit.
