We help you choose a storage company that will make storage simple and easy from the moment you arrive.
At Self Storage Moorabbin Melbourne all our staff take their responsibilities seriously. We treat your information with the highest level of attention and care possible. If you ask us a question we will do our best to find the answer.
Let’s assume you have selected a storage facility and have arrived with your trailer/truck/ute. Once you’ve decided on your storage unit size, it only takes a few moments to fill out an agreement form ready to store your items.
Aim to pick a size a bit larger than you think you will need. You really don’t want to be moving things between units once you have stashed everything.
Garage units tend to be on ground level, with large roller doors and wide driveways for really easy access. Typical unit sizes range from 1 cubic metre to a huge 80 cubic metres (commonly used for mini-warehousing).
Making moving in and out easy
Most storage facilities will go out of their way to make both moving in and moving out easy. After all they are keen to keep you happy and hope you will return one day or tell your friends. Trolleys are usually available to all their customers as well as a trailer (subject to availability). If you need a forklift ask if there is a licensed driver who will be happy to help.
Need packing supplies? That’s easy. Just about every storage facility will have packing supplies available for purchase. Many even have special moving in bundles of packing materials. The staff of your chosen storage facility will generally be happy to recommend a removalist if you need to move. They are also sure to have a large range of boxes including tea chests, storage boxes in lots of shapes and sizes, cartons, porta-robes, archive boxes, packing tape, bags, covers for mattresses, rugs, wrapping supplies including bubble wrap and of course padlocks – everything you need to store, hang, cover, tape and box your items.
Need a removalist? We can arrange a professional, competitive quote with a reputable company.
Convenient payment options, discounts and refunds
Ask to arrange for monthly payments to happen automatically or you can pay by cash, EFTPOS and most major credit cards at nearly all storage facilities.
Ask about whether there are any discounts on long-term pre-paid storage (6 months or more).
And if you vacate early, find out if your refund is calculated to the day of moving out.
Easy 24/7 access to your storage unit
Modern self storage providers are going to be proud of their security and genuine 24 hour a day 7 days a week access. Your individual PIN gives you access whenever you need it, not just when it suits the caretaker or security guard.
With your own PIN, lock and key, you come and go as you please.
That’s not only convenient; it makes life easier if your activities, business or recreation take place outside normal business hours. You might be surprised how busy a self storage centre can get on a long weekend or on Christmas eve!
Security & Safety
Your vehicle, boat, caravan or goods are safer in storage than in your own backyard. Why? Because they are being monitored all day, every day.
Self storage premises have strong, high-standard security fencing, sophisticated alarm and lighting systems and have 24 hour video surveillance.
Added peace of mind
For further peace of mind you can take out affordable insurance on your goods with instant approval. We recommend you use a reputable insurance broker who specialises in self storage industry requirements.
