So I rented a storage unit a few months ago and just recently discovered that it is infested with field mice. I had insurance on the items through State Farm but unfortunately they don't cover rodents.
Here's what gets me, the storage company knew they had an infestation. When I told them my stuff was ruined by rodents they didn't act surprised at all. Then they brought me sticky tape instead of rat traps. They obviously knew and didn't mention it when we moved in.
Its only been a few months and everything is ruined.
We have been living in our RV so about 85% of our belongings were in the storage. We are paying almost $200 a month for our storage not like it's a cheap and run down place. They offered to unlock their dumpster so we can throw our things out but other than that they haven't offered us any compensation.
So what do I do, take them to small claims court? Do I need to come up with money for a lawyer? I really don't know what to do. Any advice would be greatly appeciated.
