About the show Storage Wars
This show called Storage Wars is aired on A&E Network. The show producers shoot this in the state of California. Here, the law states that if owners of rented storage units do not make payment for 3 months, the storage unit can be auctioned.
On the show, there are a group of veteran buyers who bid for the storage units and purchase those that are abandoned by the owners for various reasons. Later, the contents are priced and profit or loss is calculated. Many times, the buyers discover strange objects in the units. There are also some controversies around the show. One of the buyers, Dave Hester had filed a lawsuit against the program producers claiming that they were deliberately placing objects inside the lockers for better TV ratings. But whatever said and done, it is interesting to learn what comes out of the abandoned and bidder lockers. So let us go through some of the crazy items found inside the storage unit.
