PHOENIX -- Let the "Storage Wars" begin! An auction similar to the popular reality show is taking place in the Valley on Saturday.

Hidden Valley Moving Southwest is auctioning 61 vaults. Sierra Auction Management is managing the sale.

Each 8-by-10-foot vault is full of all sorts of items, like furniture.

The vaults belong to people who haven’t paid for their storage or can’t be found.

“You can see, there’s a couch in one of them, a sewing machine, dressers, end tables, maybe some headboards, footboards, whatever you would have in your own home is basically in these storage vaults,“ said Jameson Still with Hidden Valley Moving Southwest .

Doors open at 8 a.m. for people to view the items. The auction kicks off at 10 a.m.

“We’re going to have all of the doors pulled off so they can take a couple of hours to look and see what’s in them without pulling any of the items out," Still said. "They will be able to look in, peek in, and see what they can see."

There’s a $200 refundable fee to attend the auction.

What:  61 Storage vaults up for auction
