A: If your storage unit was listed for auction without your knowledge or consent, it's essential to take immediate action to address the situation. Start by reaching out to the storage facility to discuss the matter and express your concerns. Provide any documentation you have, such as the email stating that you had until today to empty the unit and the picture of it being auctioned off, to support your case. Request clarification on why your unit was listed for auction and if there is any possibility of resolving the issue.

If the storage facility is unresponsive or unwilling to cooperate, you may need to seek legal advice from an attorney who can assist you in understanding your rights and options. They can advise you on any legal remedies available to you, such as filing a complaint or taking legal action against the storage facility for wrongful auctioning of your property. Additionally, they can help you navigate the process of reclaiming your belongings or seeking compensation for any losses incurred as a result of the auction.

In the meantime, it's important to act quickly to prevent your belongings from being sold at auction. If possible, visit the storage facility in person to discuss the situation with the management and attempt to resolve the issue on the spot. Document all communication and interactions with the storage facility, including dates, times, and the names of individuals you speak with, as this information may be useful if you need to pursue legal action. By advocating for yourself and seeking assistance from legal professionals, you can work to protect your rights and interests in this matter.
