6 Reasons You Should Consider Mobile Self-Storage

Mobile Self Storage

Monday 25th February, 2019

Your home is beginning to resemble a large warehouse, as items from years ago still sit in little boxes, baskets, and other containers. Of course, you don’t want to part with them because there’s always the chance that you might need that wine opener with the hula girl top that’s been gathering dust since your holiday to Fiji. You might one day dust that old kayak down, or perhaps you’ll finally start painting on those canvases you bought five years ago.

You could hold one of the greatest garage sales to ever grace Australia, but again you probably want to keep your stuff (or most of it at least). One alternative can be to sort through your valuables and then move them to a mobile self-storage unit. These units are the best way to store your valuables safely outside of your home until you are ready to move to a new location or make more space at your current residence.

Find out more about a mobile self-storage unit and how this solution can be beneficial.

In The Middle Of Moving

If you are in the middle of a move and need to stow a lot of items in one place, mobile self-storage is one way of transitioning your belongings to somewhere new. Homeowners can get the boxes from the storage company and then pack their items into the boxes. The company picks up the box and stores it for you, and when you need to pick up your items, you only need to contact the company. These storage containers can make transitioning to a new location convenient and make it easier for homeowners to actually design their home without having to worry about extra boxes being in the way.

Maximising Space

If you are holding onto extra stuff, your house is most likely littered with unused, and in some cases, unneeded items. This extra stuff takes up a lot of valuable space. With storage containers, you can clear up areas in your home that can be used for other purposes. If you ever wanted a home office but have too many items stored in the room, this is one instance when a mobile self-storage unit will come in handy. These storage units can give you the chance to maximise the space you have, and redesign your home layout.

Storing Unused Items

If you’re looking to free up some space in your home, these units give you the chance to put away items that you might not be using presently. While the item in question might not be something you want to get rid of for good, it can be stored someplace else until you need access to it again on a regular basis. Instead of storing it in a room or an attic, you can simply lease a unit and have these items stored there until further use.  

Air-Conditioned, Secure Spaces

These units are stored in air-conditioned spaces, which means valuables and other belongings that need to be in a cool location will not be damaged by Australia’s high summer temperatures. These spaces are also locked away in secure compartments, so your belongings are safe as well. These cool, secure spaces are a great place to temporarily hold furniture, appliances, clothing, or any item that needs storing.

Great For Overseas Moves

For homeowners who have to make trips to other countries, these units are great for holding items temporarily. If you are not sure whether you will be returning to the country, these storage units are an affordable way to store items long-term. When, or if, you return to Australia, your items will be safe and secure waiting for you to pick them up.

Reasons To Go Mobile

These storage units are lightweight containers that take the work out of moving your personal belongings to a storage unit. Furthermore, you do not have to worry about your items being damaged or stolen. Utilising these units can give you more time to decide what you want to do with your extra stuff so that you can maximise your space and become more organised for whatever the future might hold.
