Hi From Mass.
« on: July 12, 2011, 08:02:17 PM »
  Hi We are Bob , Claire , and Cheryl .
 We started going to storage auction's in 1990 when a fellow vendor  at a flea market in Maine sold our 5 yr . old daughter a duffel bag full of camping gear ( New Tent and Sleeping Bag , Axe , Stakes , and  Cooking Gear etc. ) for $ 5.00 , told Us it came from a storage locker , and invited Us to the next auction  .
   Ron Maynard was just getting His " Storage Auctions Solutions " auction business off the ground , and there were usually the same 4 to 6 bidders and Us at every auction .                                                      
  We didn't push them up on lockers that We knew they wanted , and they returned the favor by often asking if We wanted this one and then All walking away leaving the three of Us and the Auctioneer standing there .                                                                                                                 As they say the rest is history .  We do it now off and on , but have pulled back do to the unreal crowds and insane prices caused by the TV shows.
     Our Biggest haul was 3 lockers by the same owner , a trucking Co. a used office furniture store, and a used furniture store .   for $ 175 ,    ( made that back off the other dealers ) they gave Us a month to clean it out , plus two more lockers for $ 5.00 ea. got 5 new appliance dolly's and 26 new furniture dolly's for a starter .
    Our Best moment   was when We traveled to Ca. ,Az, and Nm. for the winter and hit a few local auctions , One of the BIG Auctioneer's that travels all over the country  selling for one company and is in Boston often , walked by Us in Az. and said Hi Bob , Hi Claire , We said Hi Tom , He walked about 10 more feet and whipped around with His jaw dropped . LOL
  The Star Actors on Forbidden Storage / Storage Hunters on TRU-TV  were our neighbors before moving to the Left Coast . But I have no comments for a public forum
