I recently moved items out of storage and came to find my unit

Resolved Question:

I recently moved items out of storage and came to find my unit was covered in mold spores because of a leak. Unfortunately, I only had insurance for 2000 dollars and I estimate roughly 10k in damage. Some of the items held a lot of sentimental value as well. I'm very upset and feel I am entitled to much more than 2k. Is this worth pursuing?

Good morning,

I'm sorry to hear of your dilemma,

I'm afraid that if you are talking about suing the storage facility for your damages that you are wasting your time. There are carefully drafted disclaimers in your rental contract and short of you proving that the employees there deliberately soaked your items from a garden hose, you will lose in court. I'm sorry.

There is no use spending money and time litigating something that you can not win.

I wish you the best in your future.
