Storage Auctions

Biggest Buy I've Made Yet!

Biggest Buy I've Made Yet!
« on: April 12, 2015, 11:41:38 PM »
So it seems like nobody is talking about any of their purchases much anymore.....is anybody on here buying any lockers at all?

I went to a storage vault auction at a moving and storage company last week.  I bought 20 vaults, every one of them professionally wrapped and boxed. 

Ended up with multiple sets of boxes belonging to the same people.  One of 11, one of 5, one of 3, and a single. 

So far, all I know is I did get some nice antiques, which I don't normally get very excited about, but I see three or four pieces which should get my money back on the entire lot. 

So to move all this, it took one 26' Freightliner box truck, one Chevy cargo van load, and three loads in a Chevy diesel truck and 20' box trailer.  And of course a warehouse to cram it all in.

I'll be going through it starting this week....I probably have 300 sealed boxes and I haven't looked in any of them yet!  With the quality of some of the furniture I have seen, I am hoping they had some good stuff in the boxes too.  Anyway, kind of excited to see what I got......if I find any golden statues I'll let you know....:-)

They're still buying lockers, but why would anyone feel the need to post when the Travis & Alloro show is so entertaining? (That's called sarcasm folks, I'm here all week.)

Sounds like a nice score. Keep us updated.

If you've bought one mattress and you've bought them all.  :a012:
