I guess it’s only fair that I post a blurb about the third “reality-based” show portraying storage auctions to hit the air. Storage Hunters debuted June 21 on TruTV and features the husband/wife team of Brandon and Lori. The following excerpt is from their homepage on the TruTV web site:
Think storage auctions are a joke? […]
I was recently interviewed by an accomplished author for a book he’s writing about the phenomena of storage auctions. I won’t go into details yet on the name of the author or the book as it has not yet been published. I would like to share my interview answers and comments with my followers though.
As some of my followers know, I haven’t had much extra time this year and as a result I’ve only been getting out to a couple storage auctions each month. Unfortunately I’ve been hearing about some great units I’ve missed as a result. Last month, a regular who I’m friendly with pulled me aside and […]
Due to a very hectic schedule I have unfortunately not had a chance to attend many auctions so far in 2011. As a result, I’ve only acquired two units so far this year.

In the past year I’ve had the opportunity to use a lot of different cell phones due to being on-call much of the time. The company I was working with swapped phones around a lot and I’ve had a couple Blackberries and an iPhone and am now using a Droid Incredible by HTC. Of […]

A&E is set to premier “Storage Wars”, their new tv series covering storage auctions, on December 1, 2010.
