DO I HAVE TO SIGN FOR A CERTAIN LENGTH OF TIME?
No. We use the Self Storage Association of Australasia standard storage agreement. It provides for a start and end date which is entered however the agreement provides for the end date to extended automatically with 14 days notice required of departure. We have a minimum period of 28 days otherwise you can stay as long as you need. We have a number of unit holders who have been with us for over five years!
HOW MUCH NOTICE DO I HAVE TO GIVE BEFORE I MOVE OUT?
Please let us know 14 days ahead of your planned move.
ARE THE CONTENTS OF MY UNIT COVERED BY INSURANCE?
No, not unless you make arrangements to take out insurance. Check if your household contents insurance covers your goods in storage or if your policy can be endorsed to cover your stored goods. Midland Insurance Brokers specialises in self storage insurance so they are an option. However you acquire storage insurance, we think it is a good idea: if it’s worth storing, it’s worth insuring.
DO I HAVE TO LEAVE A SECURITY DEPOSIT?
No, we don’t collect a deposit.
WHAT ARE MY PAYMENT OPTIONS?
Payment is fortnightly in advance. We can set up fortnightly automatic electronic funds transfer (EFT) payments or credit/debit card payments so you don’t have to remember to send us a cheque or call to pay us. Future payments can be stopped the same day as you let us know you are leaving the units.
HOW MUCH STORAGE SPACE WILL I NEED?
This depends on the volume of goods you wish to store, how high you can safely stack goods and how much space you wish to leave yourself for accessing your goods during the storage period. For example if you have a 6m or 9m unit and you plan to store for an extended period you might leave a narrow corridor along one side of the unit to allow access to goods stored deep in the unit.
