This Week in the World of Storage Hunting

And my, what a crazy week it has been! Let’s jump right into it!

After the devastating damage left behind from Hurricane Sandy, many folks in the North East are still without power and are picking up the pieces of homes and lives torn apart. Thankfully, many storage facilities are lending a helping hand by offering a month’s free storage or transportation of goods.

Check out the links below to see how each company is playing their part to help out:

Entirely Robotic Storage Facility Files for Bankruptcy

Wow, who saw that one coming? RoboVault, a fully automated storage facility based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, is filing for Chapter 11 protection in bankruptcy after falling behind on a $20 million bank loan. Yikes. But listen to this: RoboVault is no ordinary automated storage facility. In fact, it’s safe to say that these guys went a little loco with the robotics. In order to even enter the facility, you must first pass a retinal scan (yep, they scan your eyeballs). After that, the facility conducts a bio-metric scan of your vehicle, and your goods are automatically retrieved from storage bays high up above. Since we’re not living in a futuristic metropolis as seen in The Jetsons, it’s no wonder this endeavor was a flop. Millionaires won’t even pay for this stuff.

The web has been abuzz since Brandi Passante of Storage Wars fame filed a lawsuit against Hunter Moore for releasing an adult video which he claimed starred Brandi Passante. Brandi became aware of the video after receiving messages through Twitter from hopeful fans who “couldn’t wait to watch her new video”. Brandi was allegedly mortified to find that Moore was using her likeness to promote an inappropriate video which she was not involved with. She claims to have “suffered anxiety, physical illness and lost sleep, and believes that the video will reach her children, friends and family”. The lawsuit asks for an injunction, a restraining order and all damages available from Moore who has simply said he is “never going to stop“. With a nasty attitude like that, I really hope Brandi wins this case and that Hunter Moore is banished from the internet for the rest of eternity. Good luck, Brandi!

 

Wishing everyone a relaxing, calm, robot-free weekend!

  1. It is good to know that several storage facilities
    are offering free storage and transportation of goods, particularly at a time
    when people are in most need of it. Hurricane Sandy has left many people
    homeless and helping people at such a time is indeed a great work.

  2. hello all im about to start buying storages could you give me some pointers my name is cliff  and im from west virginia  thank you

  3. hello, i am from kansas and my daughter and i are new to buying storage lockers. so far it has been more watching than buying as we are trying to feel our way thru the process.  my question is last weekend they had a caravan auction where you followed the auctioneer around town to different locker locations, they had between 12 and 28 lockers. well while i was waiting for the day of the auction i found a paper with the auction listed in it, but it also listed everything that was listed in the units. i decided not to go because i figured if they already went thru them then they got any thing of great value out of them already. am i wrong in assuming that? and if not who would have rummaged thru the lockers the auctioneers or the storage owners and is that not wrong of them to do that because i think it takes away the whole reason for me doing it and i would think a lot of other people also?
