« on: October 19, 2011, 10:45:16 PM »
I'm still checking things out to make sure that I don't over pay. First auction had 5 lkrs. 
#1 sold for a $1  it had a 4x8 pool table only.
#2 sold for a $1 weight bench with barbells and weight
#3 4 15" nice rims and tires $155 ( I saw the one who bought them, he said they are about $250 each and will look great on his Camaro
#4 $75 old beat up couch and cheap look stuff
#5 guitar and what looked to be a mixing board  $300

second auction  4 lkrs

$550   Nice looking lane loungers chairs, some good looking end tables about 15 plastic tubs closed
$750  10x20 packed looked like a whole house hold. even had a basketball pole and rim like you would see in a drive way.
$ 400 & $300. 
Prices are alway higher here.

A bench with weights went for $1? Weights are expensive, man. Maybe you should have picked that up.

Even old rusty weights would of paid off in scrap metal. Its hard not being the pooper scooper of the auction world.

I am in Pa.  But what I was getting at was the facility its self always brings higher bids than most of the other ones that I have been to.

#5 sounds about correct - I paid $175 for a 5x5 that had a guitar showing.  Other lockers with them go for higher in your $300 range.  Who ever got the weights for $1 was lucky.  He can make money just scrapping the stuff.  I will toss out a $5 bid for scrap many times.  As for your second location that is about average now a days.  In my area we have many $200-$300 lockers but full house types go for $500 - $1k.  Depends how many of the auction house / pawn shop / thirft store people are at the auction.

Why would I want to pay $1 to haul away someone else's trash?

  I was at an auction a couple of years ago , and there were two lockers with bar bells  and an exercise machine , plus one with just a large metal cabinet and the usual crap in each .
  This auction was in an old converted factory , and You would of had a really long walk out of the building , the 8 of us all laughed  when He asked for $ 25 each .
  He thought I was joking when I asked if that was what they were willing to pay us to take it , as it wasn't enough . The manager asked how much would be enough ?  7 of us walked out together .

Well I've passed on some $1 and $5 units since didn't see anything of value or that I liked.  I have cleaned out a locker that I got for free just for the metal shelf.  Of course I had just won a locker right next to it.  I'll risk $10 or less on a trash locker but only if I'm already going to be at that facility and the locker don't stink to bad.
