I watched this show twice and there is NO WAY that the things "found" in abandonded
My close friend's family ran a storage facility for close to 30 years and it is RARE that anything of value comes out of a unit that has been abandonded
Most of the stuff in storage sheds is worthless household goods, clothing and most popular - baby items and toys.
It was extremely rare that anything of value was pulled out of an abandonded
This show is so fake it isn't even fun to watch.
Two thumbs down from me!
It is really a lousy show. The cast is really pitiful and the thought of a winner in every locker is just a lie. This thing will now last long.
Have I mentioned the fat guy in the tank top is a wannabe? :D
100% staged? I don't think so....I would say probably around 20-25%. I have found such items. In these last 4 months, I have found coin collections, stamp collections, indy, baseball, hockey signed autographs. At this point I really don't know how much there worth? All types of basebal cards from the 60's, Different types of sterling, some gold. Lots of antiques. This is to say just a sampling of what I have. I only do this as a recreation, not as a business. I have a business and trying to expand. Yes, I don't know why people leave coin collections in there units and then leave it. I believe after about 3 - 6 months people seem to foget exactly what they put in these units.
You have a choice to pick and choose the unit you want to buy. Maybe I am lucky? I have picked some that were just "breaking even". When I have a chance, I travel no more than 2 hours from a unit. I don't always except to buy one either.
I will be going today and cleaning one unit out. It's been there for 26 years. Go figure. That's about 30,000 dollars, that I have added up it cost to rent it, for the past 26 year renting. What is in this unit that would be worth that much? I have seen haywood wakefield chairs, and alot of cigerette promotions. Anything else, I don't know yet? I have only cleaned out an area of 4 x 6 so far. It's a 10 x 25 unit and will take me the rest of the month to clean it out.
Believe me it's fun but alot of work. If you don't mind work.. I don't what's harder, digging for sapphires in Montana or digging out a storage unit?
