Auction Hunters premiered on SPK on November 9, 2010. Every day in America, there are over ten thousand abandoned storage units that are put up for public auction. Each unit has the potential to be a goldmine or a bust for those who make their living hunting unclaimed property. Amidst a struggling economy, the business of auction hunting has emerged as a thriving trade for many Americans. This series follows two of the best prospectors in the business in their quest to win auctions, acquire abandoned treasure and sell it for a profit. The series offers viewers a rare look into the high stakes, financial risks and potential rewards where the right purchase can bring in serious cash.
