We do two things very well here at Ablemove Wottons: moving your things & storing your things. It’s what we’ve been doing for over 75 years now and customers love the reliability that our safe storage containers have to offer. Of course from time to time we are asked some funny questions. One of the more common we’ve been asked when helping the lovely people of Bristol find storage solutions is “What are the weirdest things people keep in storage?

After a little investigating and a few laughs, here are 5 of the weird and wonderful things that have been found in storage containers.
