Hello MaryThis is Samuel.
So help me to understand this better. You have a contract? With a specific pick up date? They have failed 3 other times to fulfill the contract? Is there anything in the contract pertaining to storage?
Do you want to continue with this company or do you want to get your money back and get another mover? Are they saying you will be responsible for the storage?
If there is nothing in your contract stipulating that you will pay any storage fees, then you are not responsible. It appears it is the fault of the company that there needs to be storage. I suggest however, that you will want to get it in writing that you will not be responsible for any storage fees because the storage is a result of their failure to comply with the contract and having to postpone pick up as agreed.
And I suggest it further get into writing when the property will be removed from storage and delivered in full to your new residence. This company seems a bit shady so I suggest you get everything you agree to from here on out in writing regardless of what the contract says at this point.
