A: What exactly is your question?

I can’t imagine a storage company ‘siding with’ anyone. Had you paid your storage bill? The scenario is unclear.

If you didn’t pay your bill they COUKD have auctioned off you’d stuff for back rent and Re rented the unit to someone else who put on new locks … are you saying that is what happened?

I don’t see a question here and the facts you state are unclear ….
