The need for a treasure chest gave birth to the invention of storage units. A storage unit has working dynamics in the sense that it allows people to store their items. Peradventure, the owners of such some units kept in a storage facility fail to redeem payments, such units are auctioned. Usually, these units are set off at auction price to the highest bidder. Note, the highest bidders do not see what’s in the unit auctioned because they are usually behind a metal door lying unseen.
A popular reality show documented the world of storage unit auctions. In America alone, there were thousands of abandoned storage units estimated to worth billions of dollars.
Without further ado, let’s go into the 4 interesting things that were been found in storage units.
1. A Rocket
The content of a storage unit was bided in 2011 by Allen Haff and Clinton Jones of Spike TV. As it has always been the case, the bidders, after purchase, will load whatever valuable items into a truck and get them sold. This time, a rocket was found in the storage unit.
2. A Dead Body
The remains of a grandmother, aged 95, were found in a storage box. According to Tampa Bay Times, the grandma died in a nursing home in Florida.
3. A Burglar
The last place you can expect someone to attempt a burgle is the storage unit. Ronald R. Dennis, however, held everyone on their jugulars in 2011 when he decided to steal from the storage units in St. joseph. Ronald’s bubbles were busted by security, who was watching carefully from the outside while he was filling his bag with the loot.
Did Ronald try to escape after the security tried to shut the door against him? Of course! But the police were notified, and he was picked up.
4. A Submarine Car
A man paid less than $100 for content in a storage unit in Long Island. To his luck, he found a white sports car! He drove the car home, only to be told by other drivers that the vehicle was one of the submarine cars operated by James Bond. The car was later purchased by Elon Musk for about $1 million.
