Check Out Some Of The Strangest Things Ever Found In Storage Units


Have you ever watched Storage Wars? It’s a show were people bid on random storage sheds auctioned off without knowing what’s inside it first in the hopes of finding something valuable to sell later. I think its kinda dumb to buy another person’s junk without knowing what it is, but people have stumbled across some really expensive items, antiques and historical things that could actually make it into a museum.

  1. I love that show Storage Wars. You just never know what people are up to, you know. People could put anything in one of those units.

  2. It is so crazy what people will leave in storage…but human bodies (dead or alive) takes the cake! I do think finding belongings of famous people would be really neat – especially historical documents from old presidents! 😀

  3. I use to go to storage auctions before it came popular. Now people pay outrageous prices for units. I use to get a whole slew of items for cheap prices. Not anymore.

  4. I could just hurl thinking of the reaction opening up a storage unit and finding a BODY PART. OH COME ON. LOLOL!!!!!!!!!!! So freaking gross.

  5. This is so entertaining. I know the storage wars here happen all the time and you can truly find some great treasures. My luck I would just get more junk haha

  6. My daughter loves that show. I’m glad they finally found the person that accidentally got locked in. Two months in a storage unit? OMG! This was a great and entertaining read!

  7. I seen what Storage Wars finds in those storage units. Some where gold mines but others were some crazy stuff. I agree with you.

  8. I was a big fan of storage wars but this list here. OH MY GOSH! The thought of finding organs, dead bodies or animals makes my heart race right now. The celeb some stuffs amazing, I would love to get that storage unit. I suddenly want to go to a storage auction now.

  9. Oh my goodness! What a list. Strange indeed! I think I would faint if I were the one who bought the smoker and saw the amputated leg there. Yikes!

    1. I watched a few times, I didn’t get it, but one time a guy bought a storage shed full of stuff for $100 bucks and he made $5 grand off its contents soooo I don’t know.

  10. That is just crazy what you can find in a storage unit! The lady that locked herself in and lost all that weight is the craziest to me! I would totally be panicking!

  11. We love to watch Storage Wars and always hope to see something weird or unusual in one of the units. I cannot believe they have found bodies but the Burt Reynolds unit would have been cool.

  12. I love storage wars! It’s so much fun to finally see what they will find in these storage units. It’s like a real life treasure hunt!

  13. Yee-ikes. I imagine for the curious, it would be fun to look through storage units. I’d be scared to find something I didn’t want to find, lol, so I’d steer clear.

  14. Storage units can be a SCARY place – in all senses. Who needs to all that junk anyway? Just Toss it 🙂

  15. Ive thought it may be fun to buy a unit to see what they have. But then I also think about ow much people lose. Kind of torn. Crazy the things people find tho.

  16. haha, The replica of K.I.T.t! I Would have wanted that one too. I hear stories on the news all the time of weird finds in storage units. Makes me want to make sure my cell is on me if I enter a unit! No trapped in for me.
