  • Burt Reynold’s Memorabilia

    Burt Reynolds was a big fan of storing his collectibles in rented storage units, however a time came when he was unable to pay is rental fee so the owners put the storage container up for auction. The unit had lots of fascinating objects including a horse carriage, a canoe from the 1972 ‘Deliverance’ film, a Smokey and the Bandit toy car, and a 1955 letter from his physician. The memorabilia was put in a museum to give fans of Burt’s work an opportunity to see them.

  • Grandma’s Body

In this instance a family concealed the body of their grandmother for 17 years.

  • Disembodied organs, or How NOT To Practice Medicine

    Businesses often have seasonal materials that use maybe once a year, such as Christmas decorations or maybe promotional offerings. It would be very inconvenient to keep these effects in the office when they are only going to be used once a year and so self storage gives business owners a fantastic opportunity to store them away from their place of work in safe keeping until they need them again in a year’s time. You also may have more stock at present than you need or have the room for; again self storage facilities offer your business a second home until the stock is required once more. Ecommerce businesses have also made the demand for self storage facilities rocket. In the day and age of the entrepreneur through channels such as eBay, the need for storing stock has never been greater.

  • 32 pythons

Tragically, the pythons were dead. The lawyer’s office sought to file animal cruelty charges against the tenant. It is never a good idea to keep pets or animals in storage units.
