There are regular auctions taking place where you bid for the contents of a storage unit, left behind by a previous owner for whatever reason.
Part of the fascination and excitement of bidding is that you never really know what you are going to find once you turn the key and take a look inside.
You could strike it lucky and find that you are now the owner of a collection of valuable coins or even a rare comic book that is worth $1 million as some lucky bidders have done, or you might be unfortunate enough to find that the previous owner collected body parts or as one person discovered, that their storage unit was a breeding site with 32 pythons inside.
As you will soon see, this collection of The Strangest Things Ever Found in Storage Units is testament to the strange things that some of us collect and sometimes provide a gruesome insight into the minds of some of our fellow human beings!
Movie fans and celebrity memorabilia collectors can sometimes strike gold in storage unit auctions and two good examples of this are the contents associated with Michael Jackson and Burt Reynolds that have been found in the past.
When the Jackson family failed to settle a debt, a huge collection of Michael Jackson memorabilia suddenly came up for auction and amongst the costumes and gold and platinum records was a strange find, a sketchbook which contained a variety of different sketches of noses.
The winning bidder for the contents of the Burt Reynolds unit was rewarded with the canoe used in the film Deliverance and a pair of pink ostrich leather boots amongst the finds.
When you bid for the contents of a storage unit, you simply don’t know most of the time whether you are going to find something of real value or on the flip side, you might wonder what you are going to do with the body parts you have just won in an auction…
