    Default Storage Wars

    Here are some photos from the craziness of the day we filmed for Storage Wars.

    The crazy black jacket is the actual jacket worn by Kevin Costner in the movie Water World. This guy was sweating like crazy, but loved the jacket and didn't want to take it off!

    If this is a real lien sale, how can they keep people out with that release?
    That silly release would not trump your state lien laws.
    Some people do not wish to be blasted all over the airwaves. I know some of our bidders would like it some, not so much.
    I would guess that they would just blur out you face if you do not agree?

    Hope it was a good day. Can't wait to see the show.

    Cool. I'm a little taken back by how many people are asking me about this show. Also, I'm suddenly getting people emailing and coming up to me asking when is our next auction is. We've gotta work some more PR out of this as it creating some good buzz and conversation which can lead to more people thinking about storage.

    You could have some real fun with a flyer that people could fill out so you could notify them when the next auction takes place. You are not guaranteeing them that you will have TV cameras there, but it would certainly give you a hook to develop an email database of future bidders. Also if folks are interested in auctions, they may just have extra stuff to store. You also could develop a Storage Wars Special rental program of some type. I have heard of a few people who lend out a Video camera to new tenants to allow them to record the things that they are putting into their unit. When the customer is finished, they return the camera and you burn them a DVD of the footage as a value added service. A side benefit is that you also know what has been placed into the unit.

    Maybe a better understanding of what happens when you don't pay your bills will help encourage renters to not go into default.

    dakselfstorage: They also made every person in the crowd sign a release form before they entered the property. I think the sign was just an added precaution. A couple of my regulars knew we were filming and decided not to come!

    MisterJim: I love the idea of a Storage Wars program of some sort. I'll give that some thought.

    Mister Jim - great ideas ... were gonna brainstorm this one some more ...

    That release is fairly standard action for filiming as its just a shotgun CYA they seem to use in public/private spaces where they can't fully control whose in the shot.
