The buyers went to the City of Industry, CA this episode for the storage auction. Darrell and Brandon made up and were back together. Jarrod and Brandi let their items do the fighting. Everyone wanted to stop Dave, but he made it very expensive to do so. While Darrell talked about being “vetranized”, Brandi and Jarrod found a helpful sheet of paper with some interesting info about the last unit. Barry decided to roll up on his fast motorcycle, so space was limited in his vehicle and his mind this mind.
The first unit had 4 air conditioner units stacked in the front and that was it. Dave and Darrell were both interested, but the outside bidders also wanted it. Dave used some delayed “Yuupps” to buy it for $300. An expert came to test Dave’s air conditioners and they all worked and were good shape. Dave sold all the units for $1500 on the spot to the expert and was happy with his quick “prostitute” like profit margin.
The 2nd unit was a colorful unit with a lot of files, a big bed, and some pink toys. Barry was ran up by an outside party and then Dave decided to up the price $100 more and Barry decided to bite. Barry got the room for $1050 and a lot of stuff to haul on his bike. Barry and his skeleton gloves proceeded to clean out the room. The unit was appearing to be a big bust, expect for some nice Barry puns. He did find a Kit-cat clock he thought could be worth some money. Kit-cat clocks have been around since the 1930s and are still produced today. Because the clock didn’t have a bow tie, the expert knew it was made before 1954. The value was only $175 for the clock as there are so many still around.
The 3rd and final unit of the show was a large unit with some appliances and some big furniture. The outsiders were very active early, but it came down to Dave and Jarrod. Dave continued to slow roll the auctioneer with super late bids. Brandi decided to encourage Jarrod to kick Dave’s but and buy the unit for $2150. The couple found most of their money back in a huge wooden bar and some antique display guns. They also found an old accordion had to be checked out. After some more digging they found a collection of bayonets. The accordion was made in the 1960s in Germany and the condition was still pretty good. The expert put the value of the instrument at $1,000. Jarrod went to a Civil War reenactment to get his bayonets checked out and the news was not good. The condition of most of the knives was as bad as all of Jarrod’s knife puns. The entire collection of knives had a value of only $200 and Brandi was proven right again.
Jarrod and Brandi +$3,100
Dave Hester $1,200
