    Why buy the units if you can get them for free?

    I did them for a while but they go so high now in the area I'm at ... even junk ones go for several hundred, people trying to "hit" on something good

    I will give you a good idea to try.....Go to the storage place and leave your name and number to be given to locker winners saying that you haul off all their trash for xxx amount of dollars a load. And also if a locker doesn't sell you will haul it off for free for the contents. Most will be more than happy to have you make a business of hauling off the trash and if your lucky you can get a few free lockers too.

    There are programs dedicated to this , and clearly there are a ton of " loser" lockers too . Consider the facts that not everyone has a truck or hauling vehicle to get those couches , refridgerators , and mattresses out of there . Also not everyone has hundreds or thousands of discretionary dollars to bid on lockers , and you gotta have a place to take and store all that stuff until it sells ! I'm not saying you can't make the occasional score now and then - but to say " this is where it's at" is not telling the whole story .

    Get with a local auction company that has consignment auctions. See if you can store stuff there until you have enough or rent a semi trailer until full then take to the auction and watch the fun.....

    The downside is getting rid of all the buggy mattresses and clothing you find, not to mention the broken furniture and appliances. Then you have to deal with expired food, used sex toys and dead rodents in the boxes! I think I'll pass...

    I'd rather make youtube videos. Then you don't have to deal with the stuff mentioned above.

    I went to some of those storage auctions, I passed for the exact reasons freebird mentions. All the matress's, couch's. dirty lazyboys, etc......Some of that stuff is nasty!! Feel like your getting bed bugs,lice and roaches, just by looking in the door!!!

    Selling furniture on the secondary market is challenging to say the least - even decent antique furniture ! Here in Santa fe there are a dozen or more large consignment galleries , plus a ton of thrift stores ( Good will , Savers , St. Vincent de Paul, Sal. Army etc.) There is way too much of this stuff around here .

    I'd be more interested in reading your posts if you included pictures of some of your finds. You rarely answer replies here which leads me to belive you are here only to generate YouTube traffic.

    I have a face and body that goes over great, on radio. Honestly, I wouldn't watch the video because the title page creeps me out.

    I still have some beautiful victorian era furniture stored.some hand carved even...Basically worthless!! Compared to 15 to 20 years back.

    pottery? glass? all worthless compared to the past. Heck any collectable has flooded the market. The only stuff of any value is the super rare stuff! That has even dropped in price.
