So after attending a couple auctions I decided to jump in with both feet and landed my first unit.

Unit was and 8'X8' and 80% full.  Visible from the door:  Two dozen well stacked cardboard boxes, dresser, 32" TV, Kids Toy Box, Custom built computer, Chrome BMX freestyle bike.

Approximately 24-30 people with 4 active bidders.  Started out at $50 and inched its way to $160.  Now down between myself and one other.  $180...$190...$200...$220....$240 then I just jumped to $300.  That ended it and I won it for $300.

Guy built computers and had multiple misc. parts and other computer odds and ends.

Items found:  Desktop PC, HP Dv2000 laptop (minus hard drive) 19" LCD Monitor, LG Env Touch cell phone, Sony Car Stereo, Black & Decker 12v cordless drill and charger in case, Schmucker Instant Power portable jump box, Weber portable propane grill, 3 IDE Hard drives (320gb total), Haro Sport BMX Freestyle bike,

Boxes were %90 clothes. 

Total cost: Unit- $300, Fuel - $25, Dump Fee - $40 for a total of $365.

Items sold on Craigslist: Desktop computer - $100, IDE Hard drives - $20, Weber grill - $20, BMX Bike - $50 for a total of $190
Items sold on Ebay: HP Dv2000 laptop - $107, LG Env Touch - $70 for a total of $177
Grand Total: $367

Still have items listed and everything else sold is for profit

Overall experience was great and can't wait to get another unit
