Weird & Wacky Finds / False Teeth, scooter, walker, canes.. DVD's
« on: February 24, 2015, 01:24:09 PM »
Okay the false teeth were creepy..  found them in a bottom of a styrofoam cooler that was located in a small (NICE) Deep Freese.. 

The scooter was strange, nice shape, but the seat for it was in the other end of the unit..  Got to wonder about people packing stuff up...  It's a WINMED.. with no keys and flat tires...

And found enough laundry soap that I left it at the dumpster hopefully where someone that can use it will find it..  (not the brand my wife uses, and not something I want to try to sell)

Next Unit I got had a TON of DVD's in it,  some pirate, the first box I opened was ADULT style and was missing all the disks from the cases (FINE BY ME)  the other boxes were factory DVD's big movies (not the 3$ walmart bin movies).  one was filled with Pirate DVD's  headed for the dump...

My son got a Killer m17 style colt Airsoft rifle in it new in box, HE LOVES IT and he earned it helping me..  Just some strange combinations of stuff in units..

Weird & Wacky Finds / What I found...

It's snowy, icey, I drove to the latest online auction unit I won.. Opened the door up started sorting a little (just in my car so not taking much) Low and behold I found something I really really really needed...

Windshield wiper fluid - and Ice melt...

I was out of both, and they were in short supply in the store last time I went so I wound up doign without, and my windshield was dirty for the salt on the road..   I paid 60$ for the unit, I got about 30$ in ice melt, and several RAINEX windshield fluid gallons..   

Now the rest of the unit is very promising... Motorized mibility cart for older people (nice one, looks complete)  Desk, dresser, about 4 new coolers, and several bigger coolers..  Tools, saw one Air powered cutting wheel..  LARGE SIZE Work boots.. couple nice luggage pieces, a nice large MAGLITE flashlight, and other flashlights..  Lots of car cleaning/detailing stuff..  and a Small Deep freeze, microwave.

and of course a bed frame and Ironing board...  I am starting to think these come as standard issue for people renting a storage unit..

The other unit is filled with BOXES of DVD's and toys... an old school LARGE TV, and mattress and box springs.. (of course the standard ironing board, and bed frame)  I have yet to find a good marked for some SPECIAL content DVD's..  but mosts of the lot is rated R and below.

General Storage Auction Talk / Re: Should children be allowed at auctions?
« on: February 11, 2015, 08:42:09 AM »
What? You mean to tell me there are actually kids out there that behave?  ;)

There are a FEW...  My kid (almost 11)  Will help anyone when he can...  Sometimes leaving me out in the cold...  Setting up at a church yard sale, he helped a lot of people set up and carry stuff in..  Even took my hand truck..  Most wanted to give him a little something too... So I guess thats okay..  Makes me feel good when he tells them "No thats okay!"

Question: The other person that uses thier kids, do you sorta go through the unit for the Unmentionables???

I have hired help..  My biggest issue is them WANTING stuff and pocketing stuff..  Now I generally use my kid for some help, my issue there is he wants to Keep Stuff too..  Nice set of drums in a unit, totally his...  My hired help, I will give them some stuff, Clothes for example, shoes...  and then they take my time to see if they fit, etc...  Oh well...  I do 10$ an hour...  Not a lot but it adds up..

Online Storage Auctions / Re: Hard Close v/s Soft Close
« on: January 14, 2015, 08:19:25 AM »
I will stop bidding if they go to a soft close... simple at that... I'd rather go fight it out at real auctions.  although I will admit I do hate getting outbid with 10 seconds left and lose a unit. but that is the chance I take.

Maybe it's a scam?

You have no clue if the facility or if workers from the site owner is bidding up units. I had friends bid up my eBay auctions before.

This bidding on ebay can get you banned, shill bidding... Against the Terms of service, I would not advertise that I do this if I was you.

I will big 10$ on a unit just so it goes on my list...  I wish there were better tools to track online auctions.

I November I got a unit that has enough personal effect I filled 3 LARGE moving boxes and a clothes basket with them. (Pictures, school records, birth records, taxes)  To dispose of I would have had to make an extra trip.. The manager offered to take care and get them back to the owner.  I was very thankful!!
