In March of 2011 I was scammed by a storage facility in Los Angeles, that I wish to warn others about; Price Storage in Los Angeles on South La Brea. They had an auction of a store room that I bid on, only to discover that it had been sitting there for an entire year; it had been up for auction three times before, once every three months. This was the fourth time. I discovered this from a new staffer who didn't realize she wasn't supposed to tell me that about the space when she looked it up.

Over the year, the items had become so mildewed they were unusable. I left the room as it was and took the loss on the deposit. I found out three months later that after they had profited from me, that they auctioned the same room AGAIN. Apparently their policy is to leave items there until a sucker pays for the privilege of haluing their garbage to the dump for them. If they tell you it's only been abandoned for three months, don't believe them. Has anyone else had a bad experience with this storage facility or another in Los Angeles?

I know we're all competing with each other, but scams by the facilities themselves seem to be exploding, and the more we share information, the less they can get away with this.
Thanks, and please be honest about any stories, and not just trying to scare away possible competitors... :P

Wow. That sucks; rack it up to a lesson learned I guess. There's one storage facility here in Stafford, Virginia, that I stopped going to because after awhile it became obvious every unit they sell at auction had previously had the contents rifled-through by their staff.
