Find out some ghoulish stories about self storage facilities across the world, from friendly speaking ghosts, to unexplained mists. Horror movies tend to be released in Autumn and Winter when the nights grow cold and dark, and everything tends to feel that bit more eerie. Haunted houses, woods and old buildings all lend themselves to ghosts and ghouls. If there's somewhere that you didn't consider to be the perfect stomping ground for ghosts, it is a self storage unit. But if you think about it, there is something a bit spooky about a self storage unit. A bit like an empty garage, there are dark corners, cobwebs and flickering strip lights. Of course there are plenty of storage units that are well kept and anything but spooky, but for the purpose of this article, we want to give you a glimpse of the haunted side of storage… Sheffield & Mr Porter In Sheffield there is a well known self storage unit which is actually listed as one of the top ten haunted places in the whole city. The unit is on top of a vintage cinema where Mr Porter, the old projector operator is said have worked many, many years ago. Mr Porters ghost is now said to wander the halls and occasionally start running the projector room. Spooky Old Hospital In Louisiana In Louisiana there is a storage unit in a building previously used as a hospital and the ground floor was previously a morgue. Those caring for the building out of hours have said there are all sorts of strange things going on. Things like lifts operating themselves, weird noises and rooms freezing over suddenly. Bright Flashes In Oakland A self storage unit in Oakland had some spooky goings on within the third floor. An employee at the unit said that alarms were going off on the third floor, and when security footage was reviewed bright flashes and recording disturbances occurred. A White Mist In An Unknown Location A self storage user had an unexpected spooky encounter when hiring out a unit for his belongings. Many times when visiting the unit he found that lots of items were not where he left them.

A Rattling Ghost in Romford Staff in a self storage unit in Romford have experienced rattling and bashing as well as items being moved around in the walkways of the unit.

A Friendly Ghost In Chicago A self storage unit in Chicago had a receptionist who was used to working late in the building. One evening she heard a friendly 'Hello' and couldn't see where the voice was coming from. She checked the security cameras and walked around reception trying to see who spoke to her, but there was no evidence of anybody else in there with her and the doors were all locked. If you're thinking of investing in a cheap self storage unit you can rest assured it probably isn't haunted! But you can be guaranteed it is an excellent investment if you need extra space for business or domestic purposes.
