Yes they do.  Its easy to tell when they already cut the lock.  I like the ones where they cut the lock while  your there.  It's almost like opening a gift.

1 each Flash light
1 each Truck
1 each Trailer
2 each Locks
2 each arms and legs

1 each wife to tell me what she wants out of the unit.

I try to keep the cost down, more profit for me...

I guess the first question is, how much does it cost to keep the site up?
And how much the profit from it.
The other thing of it is does it help you?

What does everykone do with the dish network  and direct tv boxes?  around here you can't even donate them.

The one I walked away from was staged, in fact all of the 14 units they sold that day was staged.  I felt bad about it, but when a facility dumps there trash in a unit and sells it as someones personal stuff, that is misleading the public.  They advertised only 3 units up for auction, but ended up selling 14 units.  I'm sorry but as I see it they made no stipulations on leaving a clean unit, and if they are not going to be honest about what they are selling the heck with them.  Its not like I just walked off and stuck them with it.  I called and showed pictures of big dead rats in it, and let them know one did bite me...

I have see it plenty of times, that is lockers being staged.  Its easy to spot,  locks already cut, nice items facing you, trash covered over.  Here in Va. they can do what they want.

I guess that is the thing, all year long I get christmas stuff and don't know what to do with it. Maybe I should get a shed and stock pile it all year long.  Until it's time to sell....

Where I'm at it don't really matter.  They only have so much to spend, and if it is a nice furnture a few scratches will not matter.  Bottem line, is that when people don't have money to spend your not going to get it....

I did it once.  It turned out to be years of trash, rats, mice and nasty crap.  I didn't feel bad because it was staged to cover up the crap.  If they cut the lock and it is unstaged it would be a different story, but this place already had them open.

Oh, yea.  I keep toooo much. I was told "it is called hoarding".  To me there is a difference between keeping stuff until the time is right to sell, or hlding out until someone will buy it at a good price.
