With the recent surge in Storage Auctions, Foreclosures and Forced Estate Sales there will be more family photos, marriage certificates, legal documents, medical histories, military records and more sent to the landfills.

Moments after the Auctioneer announces "SOLD", the buyer is directed how and when to dispose of the personal documents contained in the bulk sale. Different states have different laws on how long the buyer must retain personal documents found in auctions. Some storage companies retain these items for a specified time rather than burdening the auction buyer.

LostinStorage.com is the only place where the auction buyer can make a connection with the original owner. We offer blind shipping services for those wanting anonymity. Read more in the FAQ section.

I'm looking for the bidders who bided on my Storages.

The AUCTION was on the Jan 3rd or 4th at the public storage in Vadnias Heights address is 1090 Birch Lake Blvd. 55127

I'm a single mom with 2 boys. I was behind on my storage fees. I'm trying to stand on my own two feet. I finally got a place for me and the boys. I've been in the hospital for a month. My children's father beat me up pretty bad. I've be going though this with him for a long time.

We moved into a safe place now and we have a empty place. EVERYTHING we owed was in those storages. Please I will pay you want you paid for the storages. PLEASE PLEASE my mothers things are in there. She passed away. Her desk and chair. EVERYTHING we own was in these storages. All of our clothes and shoes. PLEASE PLEASE can we have our stuff back.

I don't have it in me to tell my boys that they lost all their stuff. THEY have been handling living in a woman homeless shelter for 7 months so well. I kept telling them we will get our own place and you can have all your things in your rooms. My youngest keeps asking for his blanket at grandma made that was passed on to him. please.

PLEASE if you know about these storages or have them please contact me.

Thank you

My now ex-husband allowed our property to go up for auction without me knowing until it was too late. The storage would have included a whole house-full of furnitire, which is not what I am looking for. My interest would be my baby book and other personal documents that were lost. The book would have included my original birth certificate as well as all of my school pictures, etc... The location of the auction was the Public Storage in Canal Winchester, OH on Gender Road and I'm thinking it would have occured in mid- to late-2009. My first name is Qiana, so that should greatly help with identifying the documents.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!!

add to favorites house foreclosed on
I lost my items to auction in October 2012. I attempted many times to reclaim personal items that the company said I was given when they stored my household belongings after my eviction. The company refused my requests time after time because they did not have anyone on staff to supervise my walking through the storage unit. They also have an "all or nothing" policy of taking items out of the units. The company did not notify me that my unit was auctioned off. I found out when someone saw my name after the fact on mypublicnotices.com. The attached image contains the only picture I had of my parents who are both deceased. Many other items, pictures of my children and my wedding and engagement rings were placed in a box that the movers were supposed to put in my car but did not. Please...if you know of any items purchased at an auction at Triple M Movers and Storage in Brockton, MA...please let me know.

My unit, Unit 9 at the Baton Rouge Mini Storage off Airline Highway in Baton Rouge was auctioned. I do not care about the material items. However, I would like to retrieve personal paperwork that is of no use to the buyer. I asked the manager if she could call the buyer and ask him or her to return the personal paperwork but she refused.

I would like the following returned: paperwork that was in a blue portable cannister, paperwork that was in a large pampers box, and paperwork that was in a garbage bag including birth certificates, social security cards, and all of my family pictures including baby pictures of my son that cannot be replaced.
