Storage Wars comes to Australia, but no Storage Wars at Kennards!

Australia is about to get the hit reality TV show – Storage Wars. Foxtel will be broadcasting a package from A&E including the Storage Wars series, from February 16th.

The show is produced in the USA. Storage Wars follows four buyers at self storage space auctions – when the storer has failed to pay their rent. Storage operators are forced to sell contents of spaces to recover unpaid storage fees and release the space for rental again. In the USA, these are commonly held at the storage centre.

The success of the Storage Wars series has seen an explosion of attendance at storage centre auctions in the USA, and an increase in sale prices. The increased attendance has caused some logistical and management problems with all the extra people on site. Buyers are hoping that the units contain valuable treasures for re-sale.

Kennards Self Storage will only see their Wars on the internet, as we hold our unpaid storage auctions online with Grays.
