YES

But think about this:
This will come out in the long run - They have filmed about 70 episodes on SW alone. The other shows I dont count... Those 70 shows have been seen 100's of millions of times. Somebody should have jumped up and said "Hey that is my unit and I did not have a (whatever) stored in my unit"... Than comes "gee the storage facility miss advertised my unit and the buyer made all this money - maybe I should sue the facility, auctioneer and whoever else my attorney wants"

You can be sure that is in my mind when allowing OP to film. We do not make money from the producers, so liability is considered.

Guys this is reality TV - its entertainment. They have a hit show and it is not perfect. You are correct the auctioneers and storage facilities are doing well. However the good auctioneers hate the show. They know in the long run this is tough on them. It used to be only the really well organized auctioneer could get the good bidders to an auction with a fist full of cash. Now any auctioneer can get a crowd. Something to think about.... There is a lot in that message.

Somehow I think paying someone to be quiet about a unit can pay off for the old tenant 100% of something is better then 0% of nothing on top of the cash they make off of stupidly high bids. Either that or those units you tape we're never owned by an actual tenant.

Secondly, wtf would a good auctioneer be pissed with the show? Your show has increased there commissions 10 fold, hell they are almost superstars to people.  Tell me if the good auctioneers are beating down your door to be on the next SW? They get commissions plus show appearances, plus free advertising, that's like killing 3 birds with one stone. Sorry, I don't buy a thing your trying to sell me or anyone on here.

Yes, it's reality TV, but it's not reality as anyone who has bought 10 or more lockers knows.

I won't deny the entertainment aspect though...it's hilarious....so is a road-runner cartoon.

Bro, you missed what I was saying. I am trying to help you understand what is happening and what will happen in the future and all you can see is red.

A smart auctioneer is happy - a real smart auctioneer is scared. You could be an auctioneer tomorrow and draw a crowd, that was not the case a year ago. It is only a matter of time before storage owners decide they dont need to pay for an auctioneer... Now if you can't connect those dots, ur on your own.

Your conspiracy theory is out there - run outside there are black helicopters above you...lol Every unit has been properly occupied, with the exception of units sold for charity (which are marked). You have to have buyers on this forum who are so cal who have been to auctions where filming takes place. Ask them...they can see the ads in the legal rags.

Of course the numbers are going to be hight during filming - what do you think it cost to produce one episode? 250k! So lets show up and not buy any units? This is not tough to figure out. Producers, produce content to make money - no buy the units no show.

I am assuming you are a pro buyer and know the laws the industry follows and where the money goes. The storage facility has less write-off than before, but we still write-off bad debt.

Maybe you can explain what I am trying to sell? I have never asked anybody for money. Maybe I should?

I thought it would fail in the first season - no one is more surprised than me of the popularity.

I think I will make a fishing show for you guys where I never catch or kill anything - at least I know you guys will be watching.

LOL

Wow people. Kinda sorry I started this thread.
Was just asking if anyone signed with ST and then got a sh*t load of emails.
I don't really care. Reason I use a dump mail acct in the first place.

And it all turns into this....? :)

Really, does any of it matter at this point? It is what it is.

If you can't change your circumstances, change your attitude.


So.....lance?  What's up with your test emails?

Sorry we did not get to it today - we will be in an all day Social Training for our storage managers, we will get it done. TY for reminding me. I will be shocked bc between my wife and I we must have 12 different accounts on ST and we dont see this. But if it is correct I will be firing somebody.

I will report back with screen shots. Can I post photos here?

BTW, You are 100% correct on attitude. There are so many whiners over this show - 50% of the storage industry is pissed. They hate 100 of you showing up.

I think they are idiots - we treat you guys like gold. The way we see it you guys show up with a fist full of cash and compete to give it to us - and you most of the time live close by.

If you ever need a storage unit you are not going to think of our stores negatively! We will be the guys that bent over backwards to make the auction painless, fair and honest. All of our lock cuts, inventories are witnessed and recorded on video. If we ever caught a manager in a unit without a witnessed and a camera they are terminated on the spot.

Your right on point there! I just needed to get a locker and priced shopped a pretty big area since it's not one I'll be needing to get in/out of frequently. Distance (relatively) wasn't a top concern. Found two with size and services I needed at about the same price.

First one, cheaper, 1st for $1, closer to home but a place that when I went to to ask about auctions I got "oh. You another one of the storage wars guys? Think your gonna get rich?"

Second, no deals, 10miles further. But had been to auction (actually it was cancelled) but the employee was SO nice. Even called another storage facility that she thought had one going in an hour and put me on email list for theirs.

Guess where I rent......

Nothing yet - all clean.

signed up on ST after reading this thread. not to discredit the OP, but ive received 0 spams in the account i use. granted, i have pretty strict filters on my mail client, but i would at least see them in the junk folder before the nightly purge.

Btw, I don't get spam from ST's site, usually get 2 emails from them a month though, but I think I set the account up that way originally.
