The agreement upon which you sign states that “the storage fee is payable in advance and it is the storers resposibility to make payment directly to the facility owner on time, and in full, throughout the period of storage” (Clause 4a of the Standard Self Storage Agreement).

“What can and can’t I store inside my storage unit?”

We store everything from household furniture, outdoor furniture, pool tables, pianos, toys, books, bicycles, sporting equipment, camping equipment, tools, garage items, bikes, cars, boats, trailers, buses, caravans and much much more!

Under the Self Storage Agreement you cannot store the following goods: illegal or stolen items, explosive, inflammable and hazardous items, perishables such as food and drink, chemicals or petroleum and paints or solvents. Along side these items, we do not recommend storing personal documents such as passports, birth certificates, wills to persons or deeds to properties ect.

The facility pest control is maintained quarterly for rodents such as rats and mice, insects including spiders and cockroaches. Rodent bait stations and repellent sprays are used on site. During the length of your stay, while your storage unit remains padlocked we are not able to spray within your space; as such we recommend storers place down their own baits just in case. Many storers do not find this a necessary precaution however it is strongly recommended especially for long term storers.

Our facility is monitored 24/7, 365 days a year by Sentinel Security. We have an array of secut\rity cameras, laser beams and motion sensors to monitor and protect your goods. The site perimeter is enclosed by high fences and a state of the art 27 wire electric fence (soon to come).

You can purchase a 40/50 mm padlock for your storage unit in our office for a minimum of $11. You are required to supply your own padlock, that way when you leave our facility you take the padlock. As we do not provide managed self storage units, we do not keep copies or hold your keys for you on site at any stage.

This happens more frequently than you can imagine! Don’t worry, we have bolt cutters on site to help with the removal of your padlock. We do however require a valid form of government issued photo identification to be presented to the facility administration from the contract holder of the storage unit. This is an important step as we can’t just cut your padlock off for anyone but yourself!

PLEASE NOTE: ONLY the contract holder can authorise the removal of the padlock, and will require to be present at the time of removal. No exceptions!

this one is a little bit tricky!

Yes, BUT only if you’re looking to purely store the vehicle. Protective sheeting must be placed under the vehicle to catch any oil leakages if being stored in lock up storage.

No if you’re looking for somewhere to operate a business from or are seeking to come in and out on a daily basis with your vehicle. Unfortunately we have had issues in the past storing these types of vehicles/businesses, damaging out site, endangering our clients and frequently abusing our security systems. As security and safety is our number one priority we get very touchy about offering this type of storage.

If you are unsure please do not hesitate to contact our office administration and they will help clarify whether we are able to offer you storage 🙂

No, we do not store sea containers on site. We can however offer you storage with our larger 3.0 x 6.0 and 3.0 x 7.5m storage units. Contact our office on 9414 9800 for more storage options.
