Storage Wars in Vauxhall

Well, not exactly the show - but there is an auction there today at noon.


Storage places have regular auctions selling off the property of tenant who don't pay their rent.  There are specific lien laws governing when and how such sales can take place (with specific notice requirements etc.)


After watching Storage Wars - I always wondered what the actual auction looked like.  Especially since storage wars was a bit fixed where certain goods were planted in the containers.


The parking lot around it and near H.D., was full.

Are any 'reality' shows actually real?  oh oh I think my favorite ones to laugh at are the DIY home renovation shows. I'm 99% sure those are sponsored by general contractors. 


A long, long time ago, a friend was associated with the initial season of Survivor, and talked about how some (many? all?) of the contestants were rigged , basically plants. So I’ve always thought of reality TV as pretty non-real!


One of the originals was the first edition of N.J. Shore. I know one of the participants. He was/is a complete and utter a..hole.  He definitely wasn't a plant.

@bub,

I’ve often wondered what the rules re:abandoned property are.  As a kid I recall the neighborhood cobbler selling shoes that he had repaired, but weren’t picked up/paid for.  Also, the dry cleaner where I worked had 00s of orders awaiting claim.  Some looked like they had been there for decades.

When can someone sell or discard such merchandise?  Profits?  I tried, not very hard, to find info.  Obviously I failed.

Thankks for any ideas to point me in the right direction.


In valued items, cars, boats, ya gotta advertise in the paper. Then ya gotta get a judge's order to clam ownership.

This was the process when cars and a boat were abandoned on the property where I worked. Junk yard wouldn't tow them out without a title.

Jewelry and stuff? Nobody ever abandoned that on the property, I found a $10 bill once. Then street law came into effect --- somethin' about "weepers" and "finders".


When you put stuff in storage you sign a contract.  They have the right to sell your stuff if you don't pay.  A little different than abandoned vehicles on private property.
