Anxiously awaiting for a reality show to be called Porn Stars.

You might get lucky and find a unit that belonged to a deceased person that has some valuable shite in it. But nobody in their right mind is going to leave thousands of dollars worth of valuable shite in a storage room. Or even put it in a storage room in the first place.

Hester is a dick on the show but based on what i know from friends and wifes relatives in LA he has a pretty solid business in Orange County. Most of what he finds is in estate sales not storage lockers same goes for Barry. They are also Pickers

Cajun Pawn Stars' producers canvas the region for collectors to pretend to come off the street into the store with items.

My buddy runs a museum in Shreveport and when they were setting up the show, they came asking for contacts of local collectors.

That show is fake as hell.

I used to watch hardcore pawn, but that shite is absolute garbage now. Pawn stars is still a great show, but I think it's meant to be more of an educational show (that's why they always call in experts) because a normal pawn shop never does that.

"Pickers" is an awesome show...must be some serious editing going on to get that show down to 30 minutes.....they must spend hours at some of the gold mine picks they come across. i want their job!

Everytime I see that show I remember when I had a storage locker after getting out of college for some of my stuff while between moves. I moved everything out of there but forgot to take the lock off. I got a couple of letters saying that they would auction off my unit (which was empty) and I wasnt about to drive 100 miles to unlock a locker. I picture Dave Hesters face when they cut the lock open it and there are 2 dust bunnies in the locker.

Lindsay Lohan's storage locker to be auctioned off


quote:

Lindsay Lohan is on the verge of losing expensive designer clothes, family heirlooms and potentially embarrassing items ... because she hasn't paid her storage bill and as a result the unit is about to go up on the auction block.

Every reality show has some level of staging.

2) There is no good shite in those units

I found out the reason behind #2 later on. When the units are abandoned for a while, the management (and their friends) generally gets first dibs on the stuff. So anything left in the units for auction is what other people didn't want in the first place.


That is actually illegal. Until the auction officially ends the contents are still the property of the original owner. At no point does the storage facility take ownership of the contents. The storage place is allowed to place their own lock on the unit, but cannot go through the contents (not that it would surprise me that this is going on in Louisiana).

I went to a few storage auctions before this show came out. There were a few units that had some furniture or other stuff that might have been worth a little bit, but nothing major. We bought one unit with some boxes for $50 and found some glassware and other small things (Probably about $200 worth). Now any storage auction is crowded and gets way overbid because people expect to find treasure after watching this show.

What he said is 100% true. I had a buddy rhat did this on every storage locker that was overdue and sold the stuff on CL. They cut the old owner's lock off and put on their own so they don't have to screw with it at the time of the auction

Toy Hunters is just as bad. They hired a hot chick pretending she works there. Bull shite. They also stage phone calls and the host has the most fake enthusiasm.
