Each month, we hold a public auction on storage units that are more than 60 days in default in order to satisfy our lien as defined by Tennessee state law. This is an unfortunate, but necessary, event in order to make these storage units available for others. At Cannon Self-Storage, we make every effort to contact our tenants and work out a payment arrangement. A public auction of someone's belongings is absolutely the last resort used to satisfy the outstanding bill.

Our Chattanooga, TN stores hold monthly public auctions online at Please view the 2019 Foreclosure Auction Calendar for upcoming auction dates.
