Oh yea, good unit.

Oh yea, good unit.

Went to an auction Saturday and they only had one unit and only 2 other people showed up.  When the owner of the storage facility cut the lock he  was not sure about selling the unit.  He looked thru the stuff and went thru the stuff and was not sure if he was going to sell it.  He went back to the office and when he came back he decided to sell it.  The wife started off with an opening bid of 100 bucks, no one else wanted to bid.  he told us he was not going to sell it for 100 dollars, so the wife said 200.  Well, then he said that he has 300 in back rent and wants to get that.  Well, I then offered 250.  Him and the wife settled for 275.  It took 2 truck loads and two 19 foot trailer loads to empty the unit. OMG, the guy worked for Snap-on tools and you might think I'm making this up there is boxes of tools in the unit. I feel bad about the guy loosing his stuff, but glad about getting it.  Best unit ever.

Awesome, you got to love days like that when only a few people show up. It's like the storage auction gods have smiled upon you. I love seeing Snap On tools, you know that they're going to sell for a premium.

sounds like a big unit, you cant really go wrong getting a big unit at that price bound to find some good stuff. downside lots of trash runs and a lot of stuff to move

This was a good unit !
