Three! I sky+ every episode. It's a brilliant series, but Dave Hester is so annoying. He has to win whatever the cost. One has to admire Jarrod and Brandi who are the most cash-strapped of the lot, so they have to make good choices to meet their financial obligations. Great show. I still think american auctioneers are so over the top!

I like the old guy , "the collector" , seems a real nice guy .

I reckon Jarrod's wife is rather tasty , can't see her staying with him long tbh. She's too good for him .

mind you I do tend to FF thru the initial boring crappy soapy aspects to get to what they pay for the lockers and then to see what they actually find

I agree about Barry but it's the auctioneer and his wife that get on my nerves !

Also that bit a the end is presented as actual figures made or lost as if the have sold the goods and yet they are based on rough estimates on "possible" sales '

Just found this forum (DS and all their changes ), I am really liking this but quite why History feel the need to repeat an episode from only a few weeks earlier I don't know, seems stupid to me.

They should adopt this practice in the UK, it would really take off. I suppose the nearest we've got to it is house clearances, but then you know what you're buying. Anybody want to go into partnership and set up a new business? Must be able to drive!

Searching google it seems they don't do it in the UK, according to the link below a lot of the storage places just use the local auction house. I suspect unlike the USA most people in the UK would clear anything of value out of their unit before they let the storage owner sell the contents.

Barry is fantastic. One of the funniest things he's done was have one of his friends - who happens to be a dwarf - help him out one day. He put his friend on stilts and gave him night vision goggles to scope out one of the dark storage pods. It was surreal watching a dwarf tower over everyone while wearing high tech head gear.

I sky plus this programme, along with pawn stars, hardcore pawn, american pickers, cash cowboys and seeking salvage. Love them all. I don't know why everyone sees Dave as such a bad, heartless guy. He also has his own auction house and is a businessman. He picks lockers as a means to an end. The other pickers ought to know his routine by now, so why do they still allow him to force them to overpay for a locker by bidding on lots he has no intention of winning? It's all down to pride; they all want to beat Dave to a winning locker, no matter what the cost.
I agree with another poster; the practice of picking lockers would be a successful one in the UK. If you are in the business of house clearances, you know what you are buying. There is really not much of a risk here. When you win a locker on a hunch, which is 99% of the time as you don't know what is in the lot, you are doing so in the hope that the locker contains some valuable goods.
I think the owners of the lockers in storage wars are forced to sell the lockers by creditors as a means of settling debts. Over here, the bailiffs usurp goods and sell them at auction in lieu of payment.

I have to think a lot of these people die or undergo some other drastic life event and their heirs, if any, may not know about the storage unit. Nobody would just leaves their prized collections worth thousands of dollars because they are too lazy to be bothered to pick it up. There's got to be a tragic little story behind each unit abandoned with obviously valuable possessions, which the show wisely chooses not to dwell on.

Also that bit a the end is presented as actual figures made or lost as if the have sold the goods and yet they are based on rough estimates on "possible" sales '
Yeah, a lot of the time the prices seem based on what they would retail for new, which they obviously won't be able to sell it for. And when you have someone appraise some rare collectible or jewelry, the value for what it's "worth" is usually quite a bit higher than what they would actually offer to pay for it themselves. It would be nice if those totals at the end were made only after they had actually sold all the stuff.

No, I think the facility owners choose to have them auctioned off after people haven't paid the rent on their units for several months. If it were creditors forcing the renters to sell, they would separate out the items of value rather than blindly selling the whole unit sight unseen.

They seem to show one new one followed by a repeat of an old one...can't understand why

Storage Wars is also shown on the Bio Channel.

Emptying storage units seems to be doing wonders for Brandi's puppies....they definitely looked bigger last week

In this case, the creditor I refer to is the owner of the storage locker.

Just had a reply from History asking why there were no new episodes last week, they said:
The new series has now finished but there are new episodes from April and then Storage Wars: Texas premieres in August.

We'll just have to watch repeats, till then, of Barry tossing old sofas out of storage units
