As All Hallow’s Eve approaches, ghouls and spirits cross over to this world for their chance to finish what they could not in their lifetimes. That brings us to the ghastly haunting of a storage unit customer named Jim.
Jim rented a unit at his local storage center for his old furniture. Late one Friday night, he couldn’t sleep. As he tossed and turned, he realized what he was missing: his sleepy-time companion, Ted, the teddy bear. But where could Ted be? Jim finally realized that the fuzzy ursine was with the old furniture that was moved into storage. One thing became clear: it was time to head to the unit to retrieve Ted and a good night’s rest.
As Jim arrived, rain began to fall and lightning began to strike. As he left his car, he noticed a shadowy figure entering the facility, but he didn’t care – he was going to get Ted. He walked through the entrance and passed several units before he could get towards the end of the grounds. As he moved forward, he felt as if someone was watching him.
Before he reached his unit, a shadowy hand grabbed his shoulder. Jim spun around in fear.
“Stay away!” the voice screamed.
But Jim couldn’t leave without Ted. As Jim tried running past the figure, it stopped him again and spoke once more. “Stay away,” it screamed. “Stay away from my Nike shoe collection!”
The figure continued, “I’ve been haunting these units for years! Every year, I must make sure nobody is going to steal my prized shoe collection. My wife made me put them in storage and I never came back for them. So now, I haunt this place.”
Jim understood the figure’s pain. Ever since he realized Ted was locked in storage, he, too, was afraid that someone might steal his precious teddy bear and leave him restless long into the afterlife.
Jim and the ghost should have rented their storage units at STORBOX Self Storage. The STORBOX facility features 41 security cameras, with staff conducting daily security checks. There are seven entry gates, all with passcodes and entries logged for security purposes. You can rest assured knowing your items will be safe.
Jim retrieved Ted and went on his way, but the spectral spook will forever haunt that storage center.
