Hello, I'm a soldier who was recently deployed in Afghanistan and was notified that my storage unit was auctioned off while on my deployment. I thought I was making monthly payments on my unit as I called them every month and ensured my unit was paid. I had my storage unit in Friendswood Self storage located on 2300 Bay Area blvd Friendswood, Texas. My unit was 7212. I had yearbooks from South Korea and Killeen, Texas. I also had taekwondo medals, awards, my one family photo album, and my U.S. Army ACU's. I am desperately wanting to find my yearbooks and my only family photo albums as those are the only memories I have and really desperately want back. Money is no issue and am willing to pay any amount the person who bought my unit in the auction. If you want to meet, I am willing to meet anywhere anytime and pay any amount set by you. Just as long as I am able to get my photo album and yearbook back. Please if you know who purchased my unit, please contact me: lee.min.seoul@gmail.com

We are a young family, with 3 young kids. We have had a really tough two years, and didn't have enough space to keep all of our sentimental items with us, so we got a storage unit. Our daughter, Emma Burgos, will be 2 years old this month, and she was born with a club foot. We had to gradually cast her foot to turn out so she would be able to walk we started at the young age of 21 days, and ended the cats at about 6 months... She also had to have surgery to cut her tendons do that she can flex her foot. We had kept all of her casts, hospital papers, clothes, everything in or unit. We then had our son, sonny, in June this year, he was 2 months premature. That is when we started running into problems paying our bills, storage being one of them... We recently were told our storage unit had been auctioned off on November 28th, We had 15+ boxes of baby clothes, almost all packed into empty diaper boxes, we had luggage in our unit, a lot of family photos from our first vacation as a family, and I'm just asking... If you bought our unit, I just want to get the irreplaceable things back... things I cannot duplicate, or ever make again... Our unit was at the public storage property in highlands ranch Colorado, 4111 siskin ave. The storage manager won't tell me what my unit number was, so unfortunately I can't remember that information. Please, if you have any information please share it. We are willing to pay for the sentimental items.

Thank you,
Shannon.

add to favorites Family pictures of myelf and 6 of my 8 children
No Picture
I had all my baby through highschool and all my 6 of 8 children's pictures in my father's storage unit. Some were in a larger purple tub. I also had a hooked on phonics, hooked on math and hooked on homework sets. We had our christmas tree, ornaments and kid's homemade ornaments in there. There was a sketched drawing of my daughter when she was 2, a cougar, and 2-3 indian sketches my brother had drawn in professional frames. There were tubs of boys baby clothes, the outfits my babies had come home in, and my grandmothers old square dance dresses and petticoats my girls played dress up with. These were all in green and blue rubbermaid totes. There was a forest green leather couch with no legs...various other furniture items. A Smith Machine and weight bench. The storage unit was located in Lee's Summit MO. A new owner was taking over. I spoke with the manager and found out that my father was 1 month behind and they auctioned it all off. It was auctioned sometime in July or Early August 2014. If you have purchased this unit or the items sound familiar please contact me. I really want our family pictures and my brothers sketches returned. I had spoken with the manager again and he was supposed to have the owners call me to see if they could connect me with the auction company. I never had any call back.

The public storage at 817 Peninsula Blvd, Hempstead, NY 11550, unit 520, it was auctioned off on November 26, 2014, the manager of this location never contacting us about auctioning the unit and he did it anyway and my dad found out the day we planned on making a payment for the unit. My mother passed away and is buried in Jamaica West Indies, pictures of past family who have lived and gone were in the storage unit, including baby pictures of me and my brother over the years growing up, until our parents lost their home. I am hoping that whomever bought the unit is willing to just give me and my brother the photo albums, pictures, ballet costumes it is no value to you to keep it and I do not want it thrown in the garbage. I do not care about the furniture, but their are personal belongings and my mother is not with us and that is all we have to remember her, we tried contacting the manager and he does not return our calls, every time I call keep getting voicemail, please hopefully somebody sees it and let me know. thank you

Lost in storage. Paid in Oct. (but didn't notice there was a small balance due) mother died in Nov. so we called storage to let them know we would pay Nov. a little late. was told ok. Went to pay storage late nov and the storage was auctioned off on Nov. 12. How did they auction our stuff off less than 12 days after Nov became due and we said we would pay late.
Anyway we really need our family photos, our tax returns (we super need those since IRS wants us to resend a copy of a former year) and the clothes our kids came home from the hospital in. Unit F004 (i believe) lots of books, fridge, some of our office floor stuff and lots and lots of items we can not replace. we don't mind losing the vanity items but losing our passport, tax records etc and kids pictures is too much to handle. please help

My grandfather, Kenneth J. Peterson, flew off of an aircraft carrier in the Sea of Japan during the war. I had his duffel bag with a bunch of his gear in my storage unit. This is absolutely priceless to my family. I know I don't need to explain what a vital piece of our family history this is. We are absolutely devastated by this loss. Please, please get in touch if you find these things.

The solid cedar chest my great-grandfather built for my great-grandmother before they were married. The top is coming off the base, it desperately needs refinishing. It won't have much value to anyone outside of my family, but it's priceless to us.
