I know it has been a few days but SO much has happened. Luckily I was home because a gentleman came by to lock me out of my house. This is illegal without previous written notification. I never received any notification. Actually I never had any. I called and made a complete circle talking to people who sent me to the next one and eventually back on to the first who finally said just wait for a letter.
HA! What a joke that is. One last trip and everything will be in storage. The 10 x 10 unit is packed top to bottom and side to side. I told a friend I hoped there would not be an earthquake and she said it is packed so tightly if there was nothing would shift.
OK so the lock out illegal attempt occurred on Thursday and Friday morning I was on the phone to another wall of idiots until I was connected to a very nice woman.Maybe it was just her job or maybe she really does have a kind heart. She told me to calm down I could take a trip to storage without being afraid I would find myself locked out. She also said that she had the photos showing the home occupied and that a teller would be sent out and I should get it on Wednesday. In the mean time not to worry and if at that point I needed time I could get from 3 to 30 days or more if I wanted it. I just want the time to finish the move and turn off utilities.
While I was being sent around the block making useless phone calls I did discover that if you are locked out all you need to do is call the local police and they will stay watch while you reclaim all your belongings. Which is a bit of a comfort.
I plan to get back to you on Monday and let you know more but for those of you who are in the same situation I hope my experience is of some help or comfort.
