4 Unbelievable Storage Unit Finds!

4 Unbelievable Storage Unit Finds!

When exploring abandoned storage units, it’s always the dream to find that one unit

filled with one-of-a-kind discoveries. While not every unit will be filled with valuable

treasures, we can assure you that it happens more often than you’d think.

The best part about abandoned storage units is you never know what you’re going to

get. Sometimes your unit can be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars!

Check out some of the amazing finds that have been discovered in storage units:

Kobe Bryant Memorabilia

One the best storage unit success stories we’ve heard was from one of our previous

clients! An abandoned storage unit in Los Angeles, CA, went up for auction and drew

a top bid of $375.

Little did they know that the unit would be filled with a valuable collection of Kobe

Bryant related treasures! They scored items including 35 pairs of shoes, jerseys,

Lakers practice gear, and an all-access Lakers badge labeled “Mamba.”

Frank Gutierrez Art Collection

Imagine opening your storage unit and finding valuable art pieces. That’s right! One

of our most successful Storage War stories was our storage unit containing a Frank

Gutierrez art collection valued to be worth around $300,000! The unit was won by

Darrell Sheets with a bid of $3,600.

Memories of Elvis Presley

Another one of our success stories includes a storage unit filled with a large cache of

newspapers dating from the day Elvis Presley died back in 1977. The newspapers

were in excellent condition and gave us a glimpse into the death of The King. Believe

it or not, these newspapers ended up valuing ninety thousand dollars!

Valuable Pirate Treasure

When you bid on a storage unit, you truly never know what you’re going to find. One

of our favorite success stories is about one of our bidders who found a hoard of pirate


Inside of the unite was a box of Spanish gold coins and silver bars, some as old as the

16th century. The box was worth five hundred thousand dollars. This valuable find

was so heavy that it required three people to move it out of the storage unit!
