Storage Wars Season 1


Follow four professional buyers and their teams as they scour repossessed storage units in search of hidden treasure in Season 1 of the new A&E original real life series, STORAGE WARS. Part gamblers and part detectives, these seasoned veterans negotiate the fascinating and obscure world of storage auction and consignment, finding everything from dead bodies to the world s most valuable comic book collection and paying as little as ten dollars for items valued in the millions. Each episode of STORAGE WARS follows a group of bidders as they get a quick peek inside the units, aided only by a flashlight. They then must assess on the spot if the unit is worth a bid and how high they re willing to go. The high-stakes fun begins as they see if the resulting buy is full of mostly trash...or true treasure. Driven by Dan Dotson, one of the most successful and outrageous auctioneers in the country, STORAGE WARS cast of buyers is as colorful and varied as the treasures they uncover.

The 411:
We love A&E's Storage Wars. My husband and I got into at the end of the Season and were excited to see the first episodes.

The show follows bargain and resellers Darrell, Barry, Dave and Jarrod and his wife Brandi. The players bid on auctions in the California area run by fast talking Auctioneers Dan and Laura.

We have our favorites and I won't get into that but we really like this show. Owning a storage unit of our own we wonder what these guys would say about our unit if they were bidding on it! Probably "loads of junk" but the sheet metal and musical instruments would be worth a bid!

Beside the obvious scripted parts and colorful personalities it is fun to take a peek inside storage units. You find yourself wondering why someone would  just leave their stuff to be ransacked, tossed about or resold.

If you haven't seen the show; the bidders attend auctions at storage units and bid on the unit based on a looksee. They can't touch anything or walk inside. These guys are pros and can tell if a unit is good by a quick peek. I love watching them upset each other by trying to claim a worthy unit. I also love when a unit turns up having nothing but junk when they paid for it.

After they win the unit, they go through it and decide what is worth keeping and reselling. A lot of times they find something worthy which they bring to some expert in the particular field and we get a history lesson on the item along with the value.

As far as reality shows go, it is entertaining. Does it have a long shelf life? That is up for debate!
