Watch Container Wars

Container Wars is a reality television show that takes place dock side and involves the auctioning of shipping containers from around the world. Cast members are not allowed an in depth look at the contents of any given container. They must take a chance on whatever it is they see or think they see and bid accordingly. Prices for any given container can jump quickly. This is container gambling for the high roller and the cast is full of big personalities that are more than willing to spend the money to see what's inside.

The idea is to purchase the container for as little as possible and to sell the contents for a tidy profit. The gamble is, purchasing the container without knowing what's really inside. But there is more to it than just seeing a container, guessing what's inside and then purchasing it. That would truly be simple. But this show is based on auctions and it is named Container Wars for a good reason. The people that compete against each other in the auctions are warriors in their own right.

Each cast member comes to the auction with a pocket full of money, for if you win an auction you must pay in cash. They bid furiously and usually loudly for the containers that they want. These are no rank amateurs. These men and women base their livelihood on their ability to gamble in this arena. It is with great passion that they compete, often going so far as to yell at each other almost as much as they yell out their bids. Tempers often flair and more than a few harsh words have been exchanged. Still somehow they maintain a level of professionalism that allows them to continue to attend auctions together without any debilitating bad feelings.

Each episode is an adventure packed with big personalities who throw down big money for equally big surprises. Some surprises are good and some are not quite so good and a few are very exciting.
