Truck Driver/Friend who worked...

Truck Driver/Friend who worked for me offered to park my equipment on his property when I went out of business in 2016. He further offered to clean trucks and park them up front for sale. I agreed to pay him a $500 for doing this but he never did. Now he sends me a letter saying I owe him $30,000 for storage

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And how old is the truck?

Indiana

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No just this letter from some legal group

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No contract just friendly agreement

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

If he volunteered to store your trucks and never gave you a notice to remove them before charging you a storage fee, then he has no basis for charging the fees. If there was no written agreement to prove you agreed to pay storage, you need to tell him there was no storage agreement and as such you demand the return of your equipment. If he refuses to return the equipment and continues to demand storage, then you have to file a civil suit in court for "replevin" which is the common law lawsuit for "return of property."

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
