6 Weirdest Storage Unit Finds

Storage units can be full of surprises: some pleasant, some not so much. Here are some of the weirdest things discovered in delinquent units:

  • A dead body

A family in Florida was unable to pay for their storage unit. When the facility owner said he would have to sell it, the family refused, saying that the unit contained their grandmother’s dead body. The body had been stored there for about 17 years.

  • #1 Superman comic

A man bought a storage unit in an auction in 2011 only to discover the original copy of superman. He tried to auction it, but hit a wall when he found out it had been stolen from Nicholas Cage a decade before.

  • Pirate booty

A storage unit was auctioned for $1000. The new owner discovered a chest that contained numerous gold and silver coins and bars. They were estimated to be about 200 years old and were worth over $500 000.

  • Human leg

Mr. Shannon Whisnant bought a unit that contained a meat smoker. Inside the meat smoker was a human leg. It turned out the original owner had lost his leg in a car crash, and was storing it so he would be buried with it.

  • A live hand grenade

A container in Michigan was opened to find a live hand grenade. Police were immediately called in and were able to detonate it safely.

  • A collection of biohazards

A unit rented by Dr Michael Berkland, a former medical examiner, was auctioned. Inside were different body parts from over 100 people, which had been harvested during autopsies in funeral homes. Notice how we said “former” medical examiner, as he was charged with a felony and several misdemeanors.

May you have better luck than that, auction “winner!”

  1. I found a used cat box in the very first locker I bought. With the poop and pee still inside and waiting for me. Being the young and ambitious guy that I was I forced myself to take it out of the box so I can see if anything was inside the box. There was only some other garbage in that box. It was my first lesson as a Storage Locker buyer! Some boxes you have to just give up on!
