This is by no means universally true. There are a lot of scrappers
(probably more those with fingers into the surplus business) that have
quite a lot of space with very low overhead. These are the guys that
can store things. Sometimes I even see stuff hanging around for years
- not because they are holding onto it for huge money, but simply
because if gets pushed to the back as a new load comes in.
