Sponsored Post: Storage Auctions

 

Guest post by Gerard Mcdaniel

I logged onto http://www.direct.tv/ and updated our television package. I have started watching a show that I am absolutely, totally obsessed with. The show is called “Storage Wars”. Just last week they came out with another installment of the show, “Storage Wars: Texas”. Apparently, if you have a storage unit and you don’t pay your bill, or you abandon your unit for some reason or the other, the owner of the storage building has the right to auction off your things to the public. The show follows a group of people who are always going to “Storage Wars”. There are five colorful characters that all compete at the same storage auctions all over California. They do mean things to aggravate each other, like driving the prices up for bidding. The coolest thing about the show is that they when they do bid on a unit and win it, that you get to see them go through the unit and see what they find. Sometimes they find really great things that have really high resale value, but sometimes they also loose and buy a storage unit that is full of lots of junk. It being hit or miss is really part of the allure of the show.

    That show sounds like fun, although the owner of the storage building getting the right to auction off the defaulter’s things sounds tragic! Cool post!

    I catch that show now and then – it’s hard not to watch once I see it on! Some of the stuff they find is crazy!

    OH MY GOSH – another random bit of proof we are sisters from a different mother!! Just Monday Alpha Son introduced me to Storage Wars while we were eating lunch. At first I cringed because some people ticked me off and then? Magic happened and I began to get hooked. I loved it – so funny AND stupid sometimes. I like when the underdog takes a dead looking unit that everyone blows off as a waste, then underdog finds a NET profit of $12,800 in boxes of old super hero dolls in mint condition! What people do in the name of bidding wars – hysterical!

    I am a whore for that show.
    Seriously.
    Wish we had some storage units here in my neck of the Canadian woods.
    I’d be all up in that.
