Raleigh storage warehouse plans auction of unpaid storage crates

RALEIGH (WTVD) -- All My Sons Moving and Storage will auction off dozens of unpaid storage crates at Raleigh warehouse on April 11.

The storage auction at Raleigh's All My Sons Moving and Storage in Brier Creek only happens once a year.

"Last year, we had about 500 people come out here," explained All My Sons General Manager Kenon Furlong. "There's tons of furniture."

"A good example is this dining room set we have on display here, a sofa, a flatbed. There's also as you can see in here, there's refrigerators, lots of televisions, nightstands, tables," he continued.

The deals are up for grabs inside the crates that have been left unpaid.

Furlong says it's always a surprise what you might find.

"We had one lady who opened up a metal box and said 'I don't want it," said Furlong. "She actually handed it to an employee and he took a look at it and handed it back and said, you should keep this. It was actually a case holding 12 silver dollar coins."

Furlong says antiques are discovered frequently in the sold crates.

"Especially in the South, we get a lot of Civil War antiques that are found in these auction crates," he said.

At least 30 crates will be up for auction Saturday morning at 9 a.m. Bidders can register at 8 a.m. and peek inside the crates, but, there is no touching of items.

"Anybody that comes can look, but they can't pull out and start opening things up. You don't get to open up until you buy the crate," said Furlong.

Cash and credit are accepted at the auction which will be held outside the warehouse located at 7417 ACC Boulevard in Raleigh.
