Nice play by play!

Why the hell did Dave Jr. pay $5,550 for a storage unit with no real visable valuables. Has anyone here ever seen lockers go for prices like this???? The highest I have seen in my short career was $2200, over $5k is a bit ridiculous....

The auctioneer on the last 2 auction hunters is one I have seen at several auctions in the Atlanta Area. Legacy auctions was his company. He made us do the single file constantly walking line past the door of the unit just like they did on the show, and he very quickly started and ended his auctions. Before I really knew what was going on the unit was already sold... crazy fast. I guess you have to know your auctioneer.

Awesome episode. The winner is the one who didn't even show up. The highlight of the show in my opinion is the newbie is at his first auction and before it even starts he says he is going to quit his job and do this for a living. What a dumbass!

I guarantee he lost his ass paying $2600 for that unit..... that was probably his whole tax return lol

I've seen some rednecks similar to the guy you described with flashlights big enough to spotlight a deer at these auctions. As for the purple flashlight I would just keep it as-is, it takes a real man to carry a $30 lavender flashlight

I'm just thankful my hours allow me to catch morning to early afternoon auctions whenever I want. I work 11-7 as a restaurant manager, but I can come in to work a few hours late if I need to and it is no big deal.

Seriously who doesn't pay the storage bill for their hovercraft????? and the way it was covered with that tarp and miscellaneous boxes of junk... definite headscratcher. But hey it's entertaining and I will definitely watch every episode this season.

Yeah, my job is really cutting into my auction buying.... not cool!

Yeah if you find old magic the gathering cards from the early 90's they are worth a ton of money... but even the new ones can be worth alot too but the old cards can be in the thousands for mint condition alpha beta and unlimited rares

Last night's episode of Storage Wars left me feeling like the show is completely fabricated. The 6 units belonging to one lady certainly could happen, but they also had "one more interior unit"........   What are the chances that anyone would leave $12,000 bucks worth of jewelery in a storage unit? Just the way the box was inside that chest of drawers, so it could easily be found when whoever won it was going through the unit.... I don't know guys what did you think about it? I could totally see the show's producers renting out the locker and planting that stuff in there, it just didn't seem real to me. I have never questioned the show before, but last night just didn't seem real.

You know the previews for this episode acted like someone was going to find a fortune of a lifetime.... and since Dave Hester had already found 90k worth of Elvis newspapers I was sure someone was going to walk away with way more...... and No one profited more than 4k so a little disappointing how they led us to believe something that wasn't true. But besides that they did find some awesome stuff.

I went to one a week ago where the opened the door to the unit and there was nothing but stacks of papers and files, and they wouldn't even auction it.

This facility also said prior to the auction that all personal documents found MUST be returned to their office.
