I was thinking, what if we startto take some pictures of our auctions?

I mean after you win a unit, take a picture of it, with the port open.
Then take some pics as you go along sorting it out.
And then of course after you have found your goodies.

I will start to bring my camera around from now on.
Let us document and share our finest moments.

Hi,
Our computer crashed and I lost everything!  Including my storage unit pictures.   :(  I had a picture of a unit I paid $60 for that filled up our 2-1/2 car garage.  Most of it went to the dump.  But I still made over $2000 on it from books, etc. 

I'll be going to an auction this weekend that has over 20+ units right now.  I'll be sure to take a picture if I win one this week.  Healthe :)

OK, let's see if this works...trying to give a link to a pic of one of my best "finds" in a locker.



Yep, it worked. Hopefully the large pic will resize on your screen as it did on mine.

I got this in a POD lkr and it sold for $2600 in ten days (but took 11 months to clear DMV and Honda Finance).

Here's another one. I actually bought this from one of my competitors, then sold it for twice the money I paid him.



I got 52 paper trimmers in a locker; $90 for the lkr. I sell them for between $15 and $25 each. So far I've sold 26 of them for $509 for an average of $18.85 each.

Mr. A....   A question for you. Remind me again of your state and then let me know if the all cinder-block lkrs are typical there. In my neck of the woods (California) the vast majority are corrugated metal; older units are typically metal frames with a particle board type of panel filling out the walls. Thanks!

I am in Memphis,TN

Some of the older storage unit places has cinder blocks or concrete walls.
And the newer ones has metal.
And we have 2 places that are totally made with wood, lol.

I would say that in Memphis 75% of the places uses metal buildings.
