Storage unit auctions are the newest and biggest untapped source for hidden treasure!
Storage Wars is a special kind of treasure hunt, where, if you're lucky, bidding can make you rich. Bidders range from twenty-something's out for fun and adventure, to husband and wife teams looking to make fast and large cash. And everybody is prepared to create quite the drama in the process.
All over the US people fall behind with the payments on their storage units, while others have been abandonded or simply forgotten. These are called 'delinquent units' and are what our bidders are interested in. Who knows, there could be treasure hidden within...
Anything goes as the bidders assess if they think the unit is worth a bid... and how high they will actually go. In each episode the bidders head to storage units and wait anxiously for the big reveal of what is behind the door.
The owner of the facility cuts the lock to a delinquent unit and raises the door for the first time, allowing bidders to peer inside for a brief moment, aided only by a torch. This short glimpse is their only opportunity to evaluate whether or not they think the unit holds rags or riches. Then, the bidding begins. One of the most successful auctioneers in the country (not to mention the most outrageous!) conducts the proceedings.
After the auction is over we follow the successful bidders to see exactly what they have bought. Will they find a fortune or have they bought something that's only fit for the bin?
