I Bought An Abandoned Storage Unit

  • Published: 05 November 2017
  • I saw a lot of people buying and opening ebay mystery boxes for videos and I wanted to join in, so I bought an abandoned storage unit to do my own mystery haul and see what was inside, and how much it was worth! We ended up finding some treasure and a lot of trash, but overall had an ~interesting~ experience.

        My mother works at a place like this, they do sometimes cancel auctions across the board. It had nothing to do with you, most likely.

                      2 year late comment here, but they probably wouldn't have charged you for those books. That would all go on whatever poor soul held on to those books for however long he had them in there for.

                            I know this video is 2 years old but honestly it looks like this was a safe spot for a homeless person to stash their stuff and some emergency food.

                                My boss used to live across the street from a comic store and when Death of Superman first came out he went in there and the owner was like "you here for Death of Superman" and pulled up the last copy in the store. I don't know if the owner was basically holding it for him but I still think it's hilarious.

                                      I'm a couple of years late but I really liked this episode! I manage a self storage facility and I am also a huge comic book nerd, the comic book shop owner didn't lowball you, the 90's were a terrible era for the the comic book industry. The majority of the time that storage units that go up for auction are full of junk and stuff that the tenant no longer wants, so you actually scored a decent unit. Live auctions are becoming a thing of the past, the trend now is posting them online.

                                                  If you do this again, try to donate everything that’s usable, especially clothes, blankets, furniture, and beauty products. It would be really great to see how many items can be donated.

If you buy a lot of used books you get used to seeing library stamps. The funniest thing to me is the idea that a librarian might just sigh and put the returned books back in the book sale pile again.

                                                                                      example... if you see a pair of lamps and and end table and the rest is covered in trash bags or boxes. dont big more then what you think those items are worth.
