Storage compound rights?
Yesterday we drove to our storage compound where we store our trailer to pick up a lantern and some other stuff that we agreed to lend my sons youth group. It is owned by a trailer dealership. When we arrived there was a cardboard hand written sign on the gate that said "closed for inventory for 3 days". We had just paid for our yearly storage last week, and they had every opportunity to tell us that the storage area would be inaccessible, but they did not. In addition to this, the weather is still nice for camping here, and people were not able to access their trailers even if they had wanted to.
I ended up on the phone with the owner after being told "no" three times, and they finally escorted us to our trailer and allowed us to get the stuff but they were not happy about it. Somehow it made us look like the bad guys for insisting on getting into our tailer, but how were we to know what they were planning if they don't post it? So this brought up the discussion question.. "When you pay for storage, is it reasonable to assume you have access if the contract does not state otherwise?" and "Should the compound owners have to contact you if they are going to lock you out for three days?"
I am just wondering if anyone else had had this experience?
