Frequently asked questions on Self Storage

In today’s blog post we would like to share some of the frequently asked questions we hear from customers on self storage.

#1 How does self storage work?

Unlike other storage facilities, self storage gives the customers a full control over their possessions after they are stored away at their unit. Once you have all your goods stored, you’ll get your own key and have the freedom to go to your storage unit whenever you need.

All storage facilities have their own regulations, but they are very straightforward. They won’t affect you; they are mostly the hours the storage operates and regulations and rules along those lines.

#2 What am I allowed to store?

Pretty much anything, expect chemicals, flammables or other hazardous materials. Otherwise you can store furniture, books, sporting equipment, commercial stock, boxes, and clothes, anything you can think of and fit in your storage unit!

#3 What size do I need?

We talk about this on a previous blog post here. But in a nutshell, it depends on the amount of goods you want to store. You can give us a call and we’ll help you with that!

#3 How much will it cost me?

It depends on the size of the storage unit. It can be from $20 to $70 a week. Once you have a good idea of the belongings you need to store, give us a call and we’ll give you a quote!

#4 Do I need insurance?

The Self Storage Association of Australia strongly recommends all self-storage owners/renters to have insurance for the time their belongings are insured.
