    Answered . You should start by looking at your contract. You may have released any claims related to theft. If the release is too broad a court might find it against public policy or unconscionable. Of course if the storage company was complicit I don't think a court will let them hide behind a waiver but proving complicity might be a problem. You can see if the county consumer advocate can help you. If not will want to engage counsel.
