General Storage Auction Talk / my most wastefull room yet
« on: July 01, 2014, 10:03:15 AM »
got an odd one on thursday
5x10 packed solid about 6-7  feet high
did not pay much I think i got it for $50
there was 1 piece of furniture , about 10 boxes of stuff and the entire rest of of the room was filled with nothing but boxes of magazines and vhs tapes
this alone wouldnt have phased me , ive seen and bought worse rooms than this before , but the kicker for me was i found one of their old receipts and they had been in there since 2006 and after doing some quick math they must have spent 10-15,000 storing this crap 
 100 a month in the beginning and with rent increases its probably 170 or so now per month

other than the 1 piece of furniture and the magazines and tapes everything in the room would have fit in a honda civic

amazing what people will pay to hold onto crap

i bought the locker back in 2008 or so and paid around 100 , it wasnt a great locker but it was decent and if i recall correctly i got 500 -600 out of it
it was 3 people storing their stuff together and one of them worked at the united nations
she had a box of M&Ms
a tiffany trinket box marked united nations (only went for around $45 on ebay i was a bit dissapointed)
and what reminded me of it was this which i found today cleaning up

Craigslist / how far do you go testing appliances before selling them
« on: February 11, 2013, 07:08:36 PM »
how much do you test your appliances and how do you test things like washers dryers and stoves which require more than a 110 outlet ?

ive been giving them away or selling them for dirt untested , Id like to up my prices but really havent got a clue how far i should go testing these things
fridges are no problem , but id hate to sell a gas dryer and have the damn thing blow up the new owners house up

any thoughts ?
