Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software likeAldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Former CA Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Sex Photo Found in Storage Unit


Anyone who has studied Film is aware of the notorious ‘Caligula’, a lewd interpretation of the crazed Roman Emperor’s life that was funded partially by late Penthouse Magazine founder Bob Guccione, and which featured explicit, pornographic sex scenes. Well Bob Guccione has yet again found his name in the headlines as one of his storage units came up for auction in sunny Southern California. This unit was filled to the brim with shots of Penthouse pets, naturally, as well as paintings created by the pornographic mogul himself. However the most compelling find amongst the many intriguing artifacts within the storage unit was an alleged pornographic photograph of former California Governor and the Terminator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger. While this picture hasn’t surfaced online or elsewhere just yet, it allegedly does exist along with images of Lauren Hutton and Madonna in the buff. Schwarzenegger’s camp has yet to release a comment, but it’s only a matter of time before the photo sees the light of day- lest he buy the rights from its new owner- Jeremy Frommer of the Royal Bank of Canada. The moral of this story is two-fold; one: don’t take or pose for pictures mid-coitus and two: you never know what’s going to turn up at a storage auction – especially one in California.

UK Storage Firm Fails, Leaves Customers High & Dry

A storage firm fails in Worcester, UK, ending in allegations of theft after customers found their belongings missing when they were finally able to enter the grounds of the facility four weeks after its collapse. To make matters worse, the managing director of Guardian Self Storage in Sheriff Street Industrial Estate seems remorseless at best, telling the Worcester News, “I have no interest in speaking to you. I am just laughing at everything you’re printing.” Families are understandably outraged, some have lost all of their belongings as they were in the midst of moving, others lost sentimental belongings such as photographs and family heirlooms. Bailiffs entered the grounds and removed nineteen units, of which eighteen were empty. One victim of the firm’s collapse, Jeanette Weir, has recently tried to rally together other victims in order to fortify her mission to reclaim her belongings. Weir has recently contacted the police and says that she believes “there need to be better controls in place and perhaps stronger legislation to ensure that this never happens again.” This is a truly bewildering mystery… where are the missing units? Who had access to the facility during the four weeks clients were barred from entering? Can the company’s voluntary liquidation allow a third party to collect the units and their belongings?

Woman Raised In Storage Unit For Over A Decade

We’ve covered stories here at USA-Storage about uncanny and unique uses for storage units, whether they be past or present. Throughout our time covering news stories about Self-Storage and the plethora of facilities that dot the American landscape, we’ve repeatedly mused about the possibility of individuals or whole families living in a storage unit. While this seems wholly impossible- (where would you go to the bathroom?) one woman named Jodi Jill is claiming that she spent over ten years of her life calling a single 10×20 storage unit home. Not only did Ms. Jill grow up in this storage locker in Loveland, CO, she allegedly shared it with three siblings and her two parents. While Ms. Jill contends that her tale of her storage unit-cum-home is one-hundred percent factual, several skeptics question how a family could live undetected for over a decade in the cramped, dark, dankness of a storage unit. Jill maintains that the facility managers and security knew of her family’s residence in the storage facility, but failed to report it or take action against the family. While one may be reminded of Flowers in the Attic by Jill’s fair hair and complexion combined with the fact that she almost grew up in secret, it is relieving to see Jill living a life of normalcy all these years later. We wish Jill and her family members the best, and hope that whoever wins the Presidential election spend serious time considering the welfare of families, including their shelter.

37 Units Burglarized in Zeeland Township, MI

Well just when we thought the last of the self-storage robbery stories had come through our desk at USA-Storage, one to top them all comes across our newsdesk. A whopping 37 storage units were burglarized at Ottogan Self Storage in Zeeland Township, MI. According to Keith Frenz, the facility’s owner, the burglars used bolt cutters to enter through a hole they had created in the fence, and cut the locks of over one-third of the facility’s units. “They took some really unique stuff from some units,” said Frenz. Amongst the missing belongings were small items that were easily smuggled through the hole in the fence, but also snowboards, golf clubs and welding tools. While Frenz has begun trying to notify the owners of the pilfered-from storage units, it remains to be seen if any of their belongings can be recovered. One piece of evidence that stands a good chance of bringing the criminals to justice is one of the bolt cutters which was left behind in a car being stored in a unit. Frenz has considered sending it into a forensics lab to procure some sort of DNA evidence that could be used to incriminate the culprits. While double locking your unit door is generally a good safety measure against thieves, buying industrial strength locks may be the best way to ensure that your belongings will remain your belongings.

Manhattan Mini Storage Uses Political Humor to Rope In Customers

As the United States presidential election draws near, many companies see the election as a clear marketing tool that they can use to draw in customers. Clothing stores may sell garments featuring Democratic and Republican imagery, capitalizing on the patriotic trend, for example. When it comes to the Self Storage Industry, we at USA-Storage have learned that it’s pretty unpredictable across the board… so this ad campaign by Manhattan Mini Storage isn’t necessarily shocking, but it is, however, confusing. Manhattan Mini Storage has a history of making witty commentary in their advertisements, but seems to be losing steam. How exactly do the people at Manhattan Mini Storage (or the advertisers behind this campaign), feel that this question regarding Republican Vice Presidential candidate, Paul Ryan’s frat guy aura will draw in new customers? It’s reminiscent of an insecure high school bully grasping at straws to make a joke in hopes that it’ll make them new friends, alas in this Age of Snark… put-downs sell. Perhaps the company and its advertisers were attempting to appeal to hip, young Manhattan crowd… certainly they were seeking to highlight their opinion of Ryan, but the tagline is still bewildering. What does it have to do with self storage? It stands to reason that the individuals who are reminded of “Frat guys”  whom they slept with already find Ryan detestable… so what’s the point? General reception to the ads has been mostly positive with Internet commenters remarking on the campaign’s “smart marketing”, “Kseattle” on Jezebel.com remarked, “Whoever was hired to come up with a slogan for this company saw an opportunity to put a facebook status on a billboard and took it. I applaud them.” I think that about sums it all up.

CSSA Hosts Self Storage Olympics in San Diego

With all of the attention that the self-storage industry has garnered for itself in the past two years, it seems natural that the associations that allow the great storage facilities in California to operate would too find themselves in the spotlight. The California Self Storage Association will celebrate 10 years of conferences and its official membership meeting in San Diego on October 25 & 26 this year. In correlation with the Summer Olympics that were just hosted by the City of London, San Diego and the CSSA will be hosting its first ever Storage Olympics. While these Olympics feature an array of relay and field day-games, they may be peppered with a few drunken mishaps as a cocktail reception will occur during the games. Examples of the games include a cup-stacking challenge, something called the ‘Extreme Nutsacker’ and a challenge involving panty hose and US pennies. Each guest at the CSSA conference will have a chance to play three games, with additional tickets being sold for $10. No word yet if the Spice Girls are being flown in for the opening ceremony. For more information about the CSSA’s contribution to the self storage industry visit their webpage at www.californiaselfstorage.org.

Marijuana Discovered At Storage Facility That Doubles As Police K-9 Academy

While the debate over the legalization of Marijuana rages on across America, the ironic discovery of a “substantial quantity of [the drug]” in a storage facility which also doubles as a training school for drug-sniffing canines, makes headlines. While many cases involving storage units being utilized to store or hide drugs have come across our desk here at USA-Storage, this story surpasses previous tales of “cloudy” thinking. In this case from Port Angeles, Washington, the facility that offers its space to local police for K-9 training clearly advertised these classes in clear view of the suspects. The suspects were either in a hurry, or under the influence of the drugs they sought to hide behind one of the facility’s hundreds of doors, when they rented the unit. Important to note is the fact that the suspects were not brazen enough to attempt to grow any of the drug in their unit, but merely kept it behind their locked door. Interestingly enough, the precious pups at the K9 academy weren’t the whistle blowers in this story. Rather, the facility manager noticed suspicious activity from a new renter and alerted the police to their suspicions who then employed the aid of their K-9 counterparts. The investigation indicated a few “persons of interest”, and it’s safe to assume this case will go to trial. According to Washington state’s criminal penalties, possession of greater than 40 grams of Marijuana is a Class C Felony, garnering up to 5 years in prison or a fine of $10,000… or both. Perhaps this case will act as a warning to other wayward would-be drug dealers who seek to store their private stash at a public business.

Would-Be Robber Entrapped in Storage Unit Theft Mishap

We at USA-STORAGE recently brought you news of a storage-unit thief who robbed from his neighbors and hoarded his stolen goods in his own unit in the same facility. That ridiculous robber forgot all about the security cameras that surround the storage compound and found himself in hot water with the local authorities. Now another storage-related robbery has come to our attention from the heartland of the United States in St. Joseph, Missouri. In what was described as “an early Christmas present” by the Police captain who oversaw the case, a burglar by the name of Ronald Dennis creeped into a storage locker with the intent of getting away with the best valuables stored inside. In a lucky twist of fate for the storage facility and the units renter’s, the would-be robber closed the door behind him and when the on-site manager walked by, he re-locked the door- sealing the perpetrator inside. When he heard assorted noises in the secured unit, the security guard called the police who brought Dennis into custody. Dennis was not charged but had a warrant out for violating his court-ordered probation for a prior incident and was in custody.
