Unhappy Urgent help to pay the storage unit bill


ok i just got a certified letter today in the mail that we have until 10/22/2012 to pay our storage unit or they will be selling it. We cant loose it it has everything we own in there and all the stuff that was my father in laws that we got when he passed away.. My husband is so devastated right now because he dont want to loose his items from his dad. That was his best friend. We normally pay our storage bill. But he got laid off work and we are still going through the unemployment trying to get it. We owe 142.50. I will get thiswish verified to prove to you that it is not a ****. We are desperate. We dont know where else to turn i have been on the phone calling resources but there is none with the funds right now to help.praying that we get an angel before monday or we loose it all.. Thank you for reading my wish..

I don't know if there's any chance that your credit is good enough to get a microloan, but if you think you might qualify, let me know and I will PM you a couple of websites that are legit. I don't think I can post their names here on the forum.

Can you still get in and empty the storage unit? Maybe a friend would let you keep it at their place temporarily?

I don't know Michigan's laws, but generally speaking, they can't sell your stuff until you've missed 3 months' rent. They have to send you a certain number of certified letters and you have until the day of the auction to show up and pay what you owe.

You might try going to Michigan Legal Aid Michigan Legal Aid
and see if you can find an agency that serves Clare county and might be able to give you advice. It looks like the "Center for Civil Justice" serves Clare.

Sorry you are going through this - have you asked storage owner if you can have something out of unit to sell? Anything to pawn? Wedding rings, jewelry, watches? Borrow from friends or family? Let us know if you get some but not all of the money - I can give you a little but nowhere near all of it - so sorry ...

We have asked the only family member that lives here and she doesnt have it and no friends have money to lend out . I called churches today. nobody has funds. we dont even have a pawn shop no where close to us. and my wedding ring lost the big diamond it fell out and husband doesnt even have one... just alot going on get this letter today and my sister in law was not due till nov24 but her water broke today we are sittin at the hospital to see what is going on with her.. because she has no family here but us.. we only was able to come with her because i drove her other than that we wouldnt even be here because we dont have the gas.. I feel like my world is ending and there is no way out.. i feel lost.. sorry but there is alot going on and i am trying to be strong for my husband who is worried about his fathers things and my sister in law and the baby..thank you all for your prayers and thoughts...

You might also sign up here today if you haven't already - www.modestneeds.com - you are running out of time so the more places you can sign up, the better.

I will pledge $20 - would prefer that it be a loan although that is not an absolute requirement, and I would be happy if it was paid back at $2 a month. If you get to the point where my $20 will make a difference, let me know. If anyone else would like to make a pledge, I am happy to collect the money and work directly with the storage company if we collect enough and refund your money if we don't. Just make your pledge online, announce it here if you send me any money to my Paypal, and I will announce it here when I receive those funds.

There is a pawn shop near your home, but I know you are at the hospital right now. If you have anything you want to try to pawn, let me know where you are and I will see if i can locate a nearby shop.

Damn. That's rough and scary as all heck, I'm so seriously very sorry. Did you contact the Mormons for an emergency loan? Can you hock your television set?

-Thank you so much, Faithwriter. I was thinking perhaps what sometimes happens is that people remember to turn to churches for help, but they forget to also look to The Mormons for help, too. I heard The Mormons -will- help people out with money in emergency situations. Surely it can't hurt to ask. I would. And if nobody could gift it, I'd beg and plead with anybody there to set me up with a loan, and I'd sure be willing to work it all out on paper how I'd pay back the loan-how much money I'd pay back on it each month, and sign the paper. You might also want to try contacting the local Jewish Temple or Synagogue for a loan...I have seen before listed (I think in the phone book) a Jewish place that arranged for/gave out free food to the needy so hey, maybe somebody there would be willing to do a loan? You never know until you ask, and asking can't hurt.

Also it might touch somebody's heart if you gather up a big bunch of your cans of food out of your cupboard and bring them to a church, exclaiming that you are selling perfectly good cans of food out of your kitchen in a desperate try to quickly raise money for this emergency. People may be so touched, they buy your cans of food and donate extra money, also.

Also, I can totally understand if some people would think this is wrong to do, but this is a big, pressing emergency. If you have time and there is one in your area, you might want to go to your local Catholic Charities and get some free bags of groceries. I don't know what they are like now, but I remember back in the 1990s one of the items in the bags was a big can of peanut butter...black and white label...like a generic label...and anyway, after you get the free groceries take them to a church and have the pastor announce that a lady is in desperate need right now and trying to sell some groceries. You may have luck in selling the items and getting the money you need in time. I'm so sorry for you, I hope you get the money together in time. If I owned a storage unit place, there is just no way I could do this to people. How does this work, do they put all of a person's items outside and a crowd gathers (they hope) and each item gets auctioned off? Are you allowed to bid on your own items? Are you allowed on the premises when this takes place?

Ma'am, thank you for scanning in the Demand For Payment letter to show us. I was just wondering, is there any way you could hock/pawn your scanner or printer? Do you own a digital camera you could hock/pawn after you take the memory card out of it? (That way you wouldn't lose any pictures on it, right?)

That is wonderful that they said you could make a payment. In that case, I will send you the $20 I pledged.

Oops, your PayPal says you are not able to receive money at this time. Is there any other way to get money to you without having to pay a bunch of fees? Or is there a way to pay the storage company online with a credit card?
