General Storage Auction Talk / Personal documents?
« on: May 19, 2017, 01:08:10 PM »
New situation for me here. In a unit we bought, there are a ton of personal records from someone's business. An insurance business I think. Anyway, there is no much personal information in there, social security numbers, birth dates, drivers license numbers, cancelled checks, bank account numbers, etc.

I called the storage facility and the KNEW they were in there. She tried to get in touch with the owner of the unit with no luck. So now I'm suck with them I guess.

Now what in the hell am I supposed to do with these? There are boxes and boxes worth! Probably enough to fill 4 filing cabinets. I suppose I could shred it all, but it would take a heavy duty shredder to do it. That or burn it, but I would have to go buy a burn barrel. What a pain!

This weekend we got a huge unit full of mostly big, old, dusty furniture. We got it for only $280; I think probably because it's a ton of work and the other bidders knew it. Anyway, while we were cleaning the unit out, I found an old old ladies glove. I could tell it was full of something so I decided to investigate. Inside there was a cloth change purse. The clasp was rusted shut but I finally pried it open with a screwdriver. Inside of that - rolls of money - $205 in all. I've already made $55 off of 3 small pieces of furniture. This locker is going to be great! A ton of work, but great.

General Storage Auction Talk / Old laptops/computers

I got a unit this last weekend and there are about 6 laptops, a pc, and an ipad. (Don't worry, that isn't all I got.) It looks like they have been tinkered with and nothing works. I'm not sure if there is any way to make any money off of these.... help?
