Asked in Contracts for Colorado

Q: I went to my storage locker and access denied. My account is fully paid and I was given no notice, what do I do?

I'm just really confused and feel like my things are stolen/gone. Can't get ahold of customer service, and I have no email, post, or anything on their online account site showing any reason why my gate code shouldn't work. My next bill isn't due until next week. I even read through my entire contract tonight, and the only two reasons listed for why access could be denied was a default/lack of payment or if the owner needed to deny access temporarily for capacity/smoothness of operation reasons. above all else I just want my things and to know it won't happen again but I have no idea what to do.

A: Well, you may have a claim for breach of contract, conversion, and/or theft. It just depends on how the storage company responds and if you are in compliance with your contract. I would get in contact with an attorney to try to help to resolve the matter.
