    Have you ever gone to a storage auction and has the show Storage Wars change the industry?

    I went to my first storage auction this weekend along with probably half the town.  There were 300+ people there.  I don't know how many were serious bidders.  The units seemed to go for a high price ($1000+) considering there is a good chance they flooded last summer which resulted in them being abandoned.  I was wondering if anyone else has gone to a storage auction and have you noticed a change in attendance since the show Storage Wars first aired?

    Sure have and a waste of time now, too many people. Used to flip houses, until that showed aired. Now the houses go for more then they're worth at the courthouse steps.

      I had looked into buying a forclosed house to live in near where our garage is.  Problem is the banks run them up at auction.  It was cheaper for us to build a new one by the garage than buy a 15+ year old house.  The house still sits empty.

    I haven't, but a friend of mine goes to storage auctions on occasions. He says he can always tell which of the buyers are "old timers" who've been doing it since way before it became popular due to the TV shows, and that those guys HATE all the "newbs" who are now muscling in on what used to be "their" territory. Haha

    ive been going to storage auctions for years. the tv shows kind of ruined it. used to be me and like 3-4 others taking turns buying units for $30 a piece, then the shows came on and all the sudden hundreds of people and units going for $1000 plus. things seemed to have calmed down a bit but still not like it used to be. if you want to find a auction in your area check out www.freestorageauctionlists.com. there's lists for all 50 states and no charge to view auctions
