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.

On the contrary people have found some pretty odd things stored. Check it out:

    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. This is absolutely the coolest thing I’ve read all day. Poorly preserved organs? What. The. Heck…

  3. That is CRAZY! I cannot believe the one about the leg…what is up with that lol. I would love to buy a storage unit and find something cool….not creepy lol.

  4. So strange for sure. I used to watch storage wars and be prepared for the worst. I couldn’t ever open a storage unit, I’m terrified for life!

  5. 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 I do think finding belongings of famous people would be really neat – especially historical documents from old presidents! 😀

  6. 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.

  7. I have never seen that show but want to see it now lol. What a great post. I really enjoyed seeing all the weird things that have been found before.

  8. Wow people will put almost anything in those units. I would never expect animals or drug operations in a storage unit!

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  11. My husband loves to watch Storage Wars. You can really find weird items in them.

  12. 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!

  13. I would not be surprised at all the things people hide in storage units! I have even known people who have tried to live in them!

    1. I’ve heard of people who tried to live in them too.

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

  15. I’ve heard of this show but actually never watched it! That’s some crazy stuff, lol! Maybe I’ll watch it the next time it’s on 😉

  16. 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.

  17. My wife told me about this show last night and we meant to look it up on Netflix. Sounds like a great show.

    1. It’s interesting, it’s it my first show of choice, but it has peeked my interest when I’m channel flipping.

  18. I could only imagine~ Reminds me of the show Storage Wars! This list is crazy.

  19. 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!

  20. I’ve never watched storage wars now after reading this post! I feel like I should give it a go because from the way you’ve described it it sounds so interesting

  21. I have watched storage wars a few times. They have found some fairly interesting things. I think the worst thing that anyone can find is a body or parts of one. Ewwww.

  22. It is amazing what you can find in a storage locker. I would be shocked to find someones leg!!

  23. Some pf these would scare the crap out of me especially the leg and casket. I watched the show once but didn’t find it appealing so I stopped./

    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.

  24. 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!

  25. 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.

  26. Wow! I’ve seen the show. It always amazes me what people leave behind!

  27. 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!

  28. What a fascinating graphic. I couldn’t believe what the celebrities had in there. And body parts? Dead People? WHO KNEW?

    1. Yeah gross! And probably some sort of crime took place?! Can we guess?!

  29. 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.

    1. LOL, yeah I’m not one to take on other people crap either.

  30. I really enjoyed this post! Those are all super strange things to find in storage units! I makes me want to go buy one in the future and see what I get!! lol

  31. Organs found in storage units. That’s so weird!!

  32. My husband and I love watching Storage Wars! It’s crazy the things that can be found in them! And creepy, too!

  33. This is such a cool post! Love it. I’m sharing this 😛
    Could you imagine how cool it would have been to get Burt Reynold’s, MJ’s or Aretha Franklin’s locker?!

    1. That would have been awesome!

  34. Whoa! There really are starnge things found in storage units but somehow, being strange, they become cool.

    1. Yeah I guess, as long as it isn’t body parts!

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

  36. 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.

    1. Yeah, I’m not sure about how risky it is right now…: you never know.

What do you think?
