     I heard about these about a month ago. I don't know if this is localized to me or if its nationwide but heres how it works. All of the units are meticulously videotaped(about 100 in this case within a 50 mile radius) and all the buyers are all gathered in a room or auctionhouse with a big screen tv. I saw a caravan auction listed last month and tried to attend thinking it was a regular caravan, instead i found out i had to travel 45 minutes away to bid. unfortunately i wouldnt have made it in time. Well I know when and where to go this time lol, so i'll let you know how it goes. I'm in buying mode and there are i think 95 units up for grabs. most i've bought at once is 4 i think.

this sounds like chaos but I would like to check it out.  Nothing in my area like that.  Uhaul in Long Island is still normal auction

There are a couple of online storage auction sites that allow sellers to post videos. I might add this feature to OSA as well. Don't know if videos are any better than photos with an advanced zoom feature, but at least people will have the option to choose.

well. its not quite closed circuit tv, what they do is take 1 black and white photo of the unit from the door and thats what you bid on lol. well i got 1 that had a new looking push mower and grill up in front, no one could see anything else. so anyway i got it for $100 and there was a washer/dryer and a hd flatscreen hiding behind. among other nice things, was a big score. I still hate bidding on a picture though, I think next time ill just buy them all, they go fairly cheap.
