Caloundra Removals & Storage are specialists in storing household furniture and effects. We take pride in being able to care for our client’s belongings whilst they wait for their new home to become available.
There is no unloading into a warehouse where goods are stored without protection and more often than not with other customers goods.
Not only can this increase the chances of goods being mixed up but the unloading and reloading required increases both the chance of items getting damaged and due to extra resources required, the removal price and handling fees can dramatically increase.
The majority of goods we store are containerised. This has many advantages over other forms of storage such as storing in warehouses and using self-storage facilities. Storing in containers eliminates the need to unload into a warehouse or self-storage unit.
NO DOUBLE HANDLING! ALL GOODS STAY PROTECTED!
We own all of our own containers. All containers are purchased brand new and are setup specifically for the removals and storage of furniture. All containers and contents are regularly inspected to ensure all contents are kept dry and clean.
Our client’s furniture and effects are loaded into the container they are to be stored in at their residence. This allows the goods to stay wrapped in our thick furniture blankets and fabric items are kept stored in their plastic covers to keep them well protected.
Only one consignment is stored per container and our clients only pay for the volume used, not the entire container.
All of our branches also offer module storage for our clients who require their goods to be stored long term. We regard this period to be a minimum of 12 months.
Our modules are treated timber crates that are stored inside our warehouses. Once again, these goods stay protected and in their own module(s).
Security is a very important part of protecting our client’s possessions and we take many precautions to ensure goods stay safe. All containers are stored with the doors of the container stacked against the doors of another container. Our properties have security fencing, security lighting and monitored back to base alarm systems.
We offer insurance on stored furniture and effects to give extra peace of mind. Our insurance covers risks including flooding and cyclone.
This unfortunately occurs far too often. We find it is simply a case of the removal company you have booked has booked another job that is more profitable. They will either be uncontactable or will say their truck has broken down.
Due to us generally being booked out at least a couple of weeks in advance, it is very unlikely we will be able to help.
Yes. Full filing cabinets can be very heavy.
The most important preparation for storage is ensuring your whitegoods are as dry as possible. Turing these off at least 24 hours prior to your removal and leaving open to dry out is our advice. Hanging a few teabags in the fridge and freezer will also help absorb any moisture.
Storage fees are based on the volume of goods we store for you. This is charged weekly in advance.
