List was started in winter of 2010/2011. I am proud of everyone who has done a great job of keeping this list small. We do not charge deposits because of the great job everyone is doing!!!

PLEASE LOOK BELOW FOR LONNIE'S STORY.
This list above is people who bought and did not clean out their locker. The true purpose of the auction is providing the storage company a means to empty the unit. If you can not follow the rules, you are not welcome at the sale. This list is an effort to keep from charging everyone an extra clean out deposit.
Simple enough, finish what you start.
PS I have a few people question this idea of the unwelcome list. The difference is I am notifying you ahead of time that I will do this if you do not follow the rules. In the court cases that a few of you have seen, the person was barred without previous knowledge this would happen to them. You have been informed this is will happen if you can not follow the rules. Also as you watch court shows, state laws differ from state to state. What Judge Judy says does not always pertain to Missouri Law. Once again, just clean out the unit you purchase and you will not have to worry about this list.
I have had a few people questioning what people have left in units that get them on this unwelcome list. Below are some pictures of a unit that one of the people on the unwelcome list purchased. This unit was sold at A Storage Inn on Lansdowne at the May, 2012 auction. Two days after the auction, the manager contacted me and said that Lonnie had not cleaned out the unit. I called him and he said he would take care of it, never mentioned any complaints. A week after that, the manager called me and told me he had not seen or heard from Lonnie. On my second call, Lonnie then accused the managers of this facility of "setting up" this unit. Claimed it was not a real unit. Told me he was not cleaning out the unit and to put his name on the unwelcome list that he did not care.
The pictures below are a little blurry, I took them with my phone. The manager asked me to come by and see what the unit looked like after Lonnie got done with it and before the person cleaned it out for the manager. On inspection myself of the unit as it was cleaned out, the person was a homeless veteren. There was military uniforms, hand tools, misc. hand military items, free kits that are given out to homeless, etc. As you can see, there are a lot of trash bags.Â The trash bags were there to begin with. Anyone bidding on a locker should keep in mind when you see trash bags, the items in them are not going to be the greatest as a rule of thumb. Turns out in this case that this man enjoyed collecting newspapers. That is what was in the majority of the trash bags. Newspapers. 85% of this locker was trash. That is what Lonnie discovered. He was not man enough to clean out the unit. Instead, he took the low road and started accussing the mangers of wrong doings.
So, moral of story....finish what you start and don't be a Lonnie and blame your faults on others!
Oh yeah, the homeless guy was a lot neater than Lonnie was. Everything was stacked in there nice and neat when the locker was sold.
After all, the selling price was $ 200. Unit wasÂ not a total loss for the person who cleaned it out too. He said there would be enough in there to compensate him for the time and trash. I'm sure Lonnie found a few things he also took, so unlike some stories, this unit was not a total loss just not a great money maker.
