Representing N. Carolina here.

First, I'd like to say Hi.
Secondly, a little about me; I currently live in N.C. although I am originally from P.A. Up north is where I began going to auctions. Went to my first one almost 15 years ago as a teenager. ( I wasn't old enough to bid myself, so a cousin of mine was my partner)  I was buying lockers off and on for the better part of the time, although I did do it for about two years full time from 2008-2010 then stopped to go back to trucking.
After 5 years of driving a truck over-the-road, I am getting back into the auctions, full time. I went to a few auctions last week just to see if much has changed, and it hasn't really overall. Except I noticed the prices were still a bit high as they were in 2010 when I stopped. I agree with the posts on here that the T.V. shows are reason.
Last week I bought a unit full of refrigerators, stoves, air conditioners, deep freezers, washers and dryers. I could tell by just looking at them they were mostly junk. (Most were torn apart and/or missing parts) The guy that owned it, had an appliance repair shop that went out of business. No one wanted the work, so I got it for 75 dollars. I cut the copper out of what I could, and just hauled all of it to the scrap yard. I scrapped all of it for just over 1400 dollars.
Thank you for having me here and I'll be sure to post some pics later on of what I find once I go full time in a couple of weeks.

Welcome Oyaoya - nice little haul you had there just getting back into this.  I'm sort of surprised you got the locker that cheap.  Most people have become aware of scrap value along with the storage auctions.

It surprised me too...The only other person who bid was a woman, then she stopped after her son told her he wasn't moving all of that crap. Most of the others were mumbling about how much work it would be. I guess i just fell in with a lazy crowd.lol
