Noobie question: when do you open your boxes?

Noobie question: when do you open your boxes?
« on: July 10, 2011, 10:35:13 PM »
My question is just that... do you open your boxes, bags, etc. on site or do you normally pack it up and open it at home/your own storage unit/thrift shop?  I have seen the shows where they open a box and toss it just to find that "good stuff".  I think it would be better to open and sort when you are in your own element or am I wrong?  BTW I love to hear all opinions. Thanks.

Some things I open right on the spot to fill my curiousty, but for the most part it all goes with me and gets sorted off site.

I'm a fan of on-site, but just to sort keeps from trash. This way I have one truck going to the dump and one to my house.

It depends on the stuff in the unit and how large the unit is and how much time I have.

When I encounter a unit with stuff just thrown about and not properly packed I tend to sort out garbage into separate garbage bags and put the good stuff in boxes or totes.

When I am not pressed for time and have a small unit, I tend to look through the boxes on site and look for goodies.

When I have a large unit, no time for peeking, load it up and get it out.

 I allways open mine when I get home but thats generaly because I'm 80 or 100 miles from home and the sun's going down.
 Also I dont bring this stuff to my home home I have an out building 100 feet from my house so that I dont bring buggs scorpions and bad spiders into my home. stuff gets a good looking over first.
