Since bonegrmi hasn't been active on here lately in regards to the sports cards, let me help those of you with those cards you come across that don't have the time to sell. Shoot me a message and we'll definitely work something out if they are cards I can use. Thanks....

I would put all the accessories into one lot, keeping them in their respective plastic cases and maybe try a Buy it Now price and take best offers...maybe at $79.99 BIN/BO....

Definitely not dying down anytime soon around here...30 registered bidders (avg 30-40 past two months) and I'm guessing well over 60+ "other people"....had to be over 100 total for 12 units.

Because first month at a new facility is cheaper than the second month at one.
didn't even think about that, but then again...all three are delinquent, so what's their deal??

So my question is just to get some other peoples thoughts on why certain people have 2 separate storage units....but at 2 totally different storage facilities?? What do you guys think the person is doing/has done. They are about 2 miles apart and aren't related.

They have (2) units at one of the facilities and (1) at another...would they just store personal stuff at the (1) unit or could it be stuff they didn't want the other person to find. Guess I'll find out in a couple days! Just seeing what other people might think....

bolt cutters!!....did I win??.....otherwise, I'm guessing you're talking about the garden hose reel??

I guess I want to piggy-back off this question and ask, are any of you in this full time and still passing on 50 lockers to find the ones you want. If this is the case, how do you manage to not buy a locker for such a long period of time financially?? Have you owned your business that long already that you can pass them up. I am just asking this as a new guy coming into this full time....

I know the auctioneers around here will go back and forth on $5 bids all day long, just to get as much as possible on the unit. I hope they don't go as far as taking $1-2 bids, that's when I know it has reached an all time low....

I go in knowing what I am looking to put into the unit. If the other person feels they are running me, then I let them feel good for that moment...until I hit my limit and walk away. I have actually dumped a unit on a regular known for bidding people up $25/pop. So I let him hit me twice and when he finally thought I would go one more time I simply walked he got stuck with the unit $75 more than he wanted to.

He may have acted as though he wanted the unit, but the people there knew he thought he was just giving me a run for my money until I walked away. I will always go to my limit on lockers, but it will definitely have to be a great unit to even consider putting that extra $50-75 into it. I may be a newbie, but I'm not an idiot....needless to say, he doesn't consider running me anymore.

Sounds a lot more "normal"

Still definitely not "normal" around these areas still....Probably 30-35 registered, but about 100 total today....still those few I guess like myself trying to get into the business. Only thing different is I'm not in a hurry like some of these guys getting run up by the regulars just to get themselves a unit!

Welcome to the forums. Just make sure you can trust your partner!
this statement partner took me for crazy money and then declared bankruptcy. So I was stuck with a big chunk of the debt even though I left the company to them. Partnerships are very difficult to survive, but I guess if they do it can be a good thing...

Maybe they think it's safer. Apparently they never heard of buying a safe. A lot cheaper then renting a storage unit long-term.
So what about those people who bought a safe only to end up securing it in a storage unit....

I would say 50/50...definitely a reality to it considering they have shown/people have visited Dave and Jarrod's store, but at the same time, got to have some kind of entertainment where I believe the scripted part comes into play....around this area, if someone were to get into someones face like Dave/Jarrod that one episode, cops would be on the scene, because someone would have gotten punched in the face...There are some characters at the auctions around here, but they would need better scripts to actually turn it into a tv show.

Thats the next thing I want to jump into, doing clean up on foreclosures and rentals. How do you get into that?
I would definitely like to know this as well. Interested in starting a cleaning business for this. Thanks!

no doubt a home run in my opinion...sad thing about it here is that the same locker would go for $1200+!!! I'm still waiting for a really good one and when I do, I'll post it here!
