When storage units are abandoned in the great state of Texas, the treasures within are put up for auction." That opening narration from Storage Wars Texas sets up the real drama of the show: the battle between a colorful cast of characters to get the greatest return on their investment as they buy the contents of these abandoned storage units. The catch? They only get 5 minutes to inspect the contents and can only see whats visible from the opened storage unit door; they cant sort through it. This unpredictability combined with the personalities make for some of the greatest nail biting moments on TV!
