HR Strange But True!
January 03, 2008

A race car? A two-ton drill bit? A samurai sword? Those are just a few of the unusual items encountered by Space Solutions, an office relocation company in Scotland.

Lee Brandie, Space Solutions business manager, said, "It never ceases to amaze me the bizarre range of items which are stored in offices around the country," BBC News reported.

Items the company has been asked to move range from a grand piano to a single banana.

Brandie said it often the most "normal" offices that produce the most bizarre finds, such as the wine an employee was fermenting in his desk drawer at an oil and gas company, or the stuffed fox and other stuffed animals the firm was asked to move from a managing director's office.

Other items making Space Solution's list of strange pieces in the workplace included a collection of empty soft drink bottles and a display case said to contain the bones of saints.

Oh, and the race car? Not so odd, really. It was on display in the lobby of a company that sponsors Formula 3 auto racing.
