My storage unit lost all my belongings!

Asked 12 months ago - Newark, NJ

i was evicted july 25th as stated in my eviction notice that everything I couldn't take and left behind would be put into a storage unit and paid for the first month. On July 24th the sherriff came n said the same. 2 weeks later when I was settled in my new place I called the lawyers to the bank for the name of the storage facility and gave me the number to call. I called and gave them my name and the address everything was moved from and the woman said shell call me back in the call. called back 3 days later and the woman said my things were to be delivered and I said how I didn't give you my new address? Then she gave me a random address not in Nj & said someone (I don't even know) gave them that adress.. they suposed call me back its been 2 weeks they lost ALLL my belongings
