All across America there are lock-up storage units that have been abandoned. Some of the owners haven’t paid their debts, some are in prison and some, sadly, have passed away. Whatever the reason for these lock-ups being left behind, they provide a potential treasure chest for those willing to bid enough money to buy them.
But during these storage unit auctions, there’s a catch – those taking part in the auctions aren’t allowed to enter them, they can only view the contents from afar. The only way these dedicated auction goers know when and why to bid is nous, homework and a steely determination to strategise. It’s not uncommon for our auction goers to use any means necessary and play every game in the book to outfox their competitors.
We’ll meet Brandon Bernier and his wife Lori, the fiercest competitors in a high-stakes sales game. You won't believe what they find: from hidden bundles of cash to thousand-dollar chairs, from the dangerous to the downright weird. With killer instinct, the Berniers target the best storage units in the country and go to extreme lengths to get their hands on what's stashed inside. Follow them to the country's most competitive auctions as they risk a fortune to go head-to-head with hostile locals.
With so much cash at stake, it's always a dogfight to the bidder end. Bidder end. See what we did there?
