Sunday night's episode of "Storage Hunters" took place at Valley Airport Hangar Storage. The auctioneer, as always is Sean Kelly, who knows all the regulars and has a fun time giving nicknames to the newbies.
These were large storage units and the treasures within were airplane sized. The first one contained furniture, a large blue tarp covering something large and various bottles of alcohol, all set up like someone’s crash pad. Jesse has seen his share of man caves, but a man-hangar is right up his alley. He is equipped with the most money he has ever brought to an auction. As the bids start, they escalate rapidly and Jesse got the first one for $2,500.
The second was neat and tidy and looked like lighting systems, and Lori and Mone start with the trash talking. Mone got it for $3,300. She knows about lighting and sound equipment and under another cover was a medical prop, that was gory to say the least, but a great profitable unit.
The third one was another gigantic one with a large tarp with a vehicle under it. Brandon & Lori are skeptical that the car may not have an engine. However, Mone has intentions of another score. Jesse got that one for $8.,000. The car was an El Camino, but no engine. It was just a body, but a profit of $5,000.
The last one was the grand finale. A helicopter was the only item in the unit, but the regulars had their eye on it. Mone tries to strike a deal with Brandon & Lori as they plan to take another bid. Jesse ups the bid to $12,000 and doubles it soon after. Mone gets the item with Lori’s nod for $35,000. Now they need to bring their guy in to check it out. When he arrives, he agrees to buy the helicopter for $75,000 for a profit of over $13,000 each. Mone is not happy with that price, but has nothing else to do; it is two against one, and although they partnered with the item, but it is a no-brainer on this episode of "Storage Hunters."
