    Smile Storage Wars - TV

    Storage Wars is no different than all the other so-called "reality shows". They are contrived, orchestrated and edited for your entertainment. The American public has and always will be duped by some imaginative huckster.
    I watch the show occasionally and find it quite amusing. I also watch SpongeBob SquarePants with the kids and find that show entertaining as well.

    Remember, the ONLY real Reality Show is the Weather Channel.

    Now, where did I put my bolt cutters?

    So true, but it is fun to watch. Hope it doesn't hurt our industry like some of the other negative news stories have in the past.

    Since Storage Wars and Auction Hunters has started almost everyday someone asks me about auctions. I have to explain to them that not every unit is going to be a gold mine. They just show you the good ones. If it helps boost my auction attendence and get more money for the units then I will be happy!

    People are so funny! They forget that there is some skill involved in liquidating the goods in the unit. Even if there IS a gold mine in the unit, it is not going to have flashing lights and a big arrow over it saying: "Here's the good stuff". You have to know what you're looking at. Do you know the styles of furniture that are valuable? Do you know your period pieces? Do you know the difference between 'old' 'vintage' 'collectible' and an 'antique'? So buying the unit is only 1/2 the battle!! These guys have contacts and information at their disposal that the average person doesn't! But hey, if they drive up some of the sale prices (for a while anyway)? Who am I to complain!

    I don’t know about you guys, but whenever I see a stack of newspapers in a unit – my first thought is Elvis Memorabilia. Right. Even the unit with empty shoe boxes produces an empty, but valuable old safe. Still have not seen the unit filled with old tires or the 5 x 10 filled with bags of old cloths. At least it is showing the winning bidders cleaning out the units. I will be interested to see what the new season in January shows produce for “Gold Mine” units and how many have the WOW factor.

    Happy New Year to everyone.

    I'm with MisterJim! I wanna know why there haven't been any units that had a couple of kid-barfed-on-one-cushion-missing & dog-pee-on-couches, and a box of GOKW (God Only Knows What) that is too gross to touch without gloves, which the customer has decided he can live without afterall, and then moved out and didn't notify you, and now 3 months (and $741 in Past Due rent/fees) later, you are mortified to find at an auction!! (sorry for the run on sentence!) You know which ones I mean... they look just like the unit with the shoe boxes, minus the WOW factor safe. And mine somehow never seem to have the safe or something similar!

    And yeah, somehow, if we had the stack of newspapers, we ALWAYS fetch $750 or better on those units, doesn't everybody? These shows should start with "Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to Fantasy Auctions! "Boss, Boss, it's de Golf Cart, it's de Golf Cart"!!!
