    It might work.
    You'll need proof you're on the lease.
    You'll also need cooperation from law enforcement.
    You get 15-20 minutes to collect your stuff.
    Most people don't get it all.
    They do get a lot of it.
    Call the police or sheriff an ask about it.

    From what I gather about your situation, small claims might be your best option.
    Judge Judy, or one of the other TV legal shows is even better.
    Why?
    Because, even if you lose, you get paid (plus you get a free mini-vacation).

    You'll have to give us a link to that other thread so we can make sure you aren't misreading something.

    I can't see the police even responding to you let alone stand by while you break into a storage unit where the account is in somebody else's name and you have absolutely no evidence except your sayso that anything in it belongs to you.

    Frankly, everybody gave that OP bad advice (including her mother) except jacksgal who also didn't think the police would stand still for that kind of thing.

    However, a nice big bolt cutter doesn't cost much at Harbor Freight or Home Depot. I'm not advocating the risk. It's up to you.

    It's not harassment if you are seeking your own stuff from somebody wrongfully keeping it from you.

    She will learn that if and when you sue her.

    What's the value of all your stuff today?

    Not what you paid for it ten years ago, but what someone would pay you today to buy it, if anything.

    If its just sentimental junk, offer your former pal $400, $200, gotta pay to get dude to play with you; and to meet you, let you grab your junk, leave the facility, and you pay him in cash outside the gate.


    Money talks, all else gets balks!!!

    But if you won't pay, forget about it.
    Let it rot, keep your money.
    Buy new stuff.


    In that instance I believe BOTH names were on the rental agreement (or both parties were known to storage management) and law enforcement agreed to the plan.

    You can always ask.

    Your problem is obtaining access to the storage facility and then the unit.

    If its by key code, it's easier than if you must use a device, a key card, or even a key to a gate, then the storage building.

    YMMV

    How will the police know what is your stuff and what is hers? They won't. They can't just take your word that the stuff is yours.

    No need to even involve police. They aren't going to care about a property dispute like this.
