How to stop the sale of belongings that are going to be auctioned off by a storage facility?

Question Details:

My son, who is going through a financial dry-spell, received a call this morning, that his belongings in a storage facility will be auctioned off today. He is behind on his storage rent, and was told if he brought in $400 today, that he could stop the sale of his stuff. My son told them he could give them $100 today, but they said it had to be $400. They told him they will be selling his items, and sending his debt to a collections agency. Is there a law in WA regarding making a payment toward this to avoid collections? Important Notice
