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.
Why choose removal and storage over self storage?
The majority of goods we store are kept in secure shipping container storage. 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

You Only Pay For The Volume You Use, Not The Entire Container
When you elect to hire a self-storage container, you have to pay for the entire container no matter how many items you plan on storing. We don’t operate that way. You will only pay for the volume of the storage container that you use. This is more cost-effective and means that people with a small volume of important possessions are still able to use our service.
Save Time & Money
Self-storage units require you to transport your goods to the facility, load them into the container and collect them when you are ready. This means you are not only paying for storage but the time and effort required to transport your goods, including fuel costs and vehicle wear and tear. We take care of the transportation and storage aspects for you.
Minimised Risk Of Damaged Goods
Our professional removalists are experienced with the handling of all goods and possessions and have a proud track record of ensuring all materials reach their target destination safely.
When you try and transport them yourself, or use a less reputable service, you run the risk of damage to your important possessions.
No Double Handling
Because the shipping container is moved as is, there is no extra handling involved in packing and unpacking the container more times than is required. This drastically reduces the chance of any damage, speeds up the process and saves you time and money throughout the process.

Storage, Removal And Collection
How Much Storage Will I Need?
To determine how much storage space you will require, you will need to have a rough idea of the volume of your furniture and other possessions. On average, this is the volume of different house sizes:
- Small 1-2 bedroom house or unit: 27m3
- Two-bedroom home or unit: 31.5m3
- Medium 2-3 bedroom house or unit: 40.5m3
- Large 3-4 bedroom house or unit: 54m3
- Very large 5 bedroom home: 67.5m3
Each of our containers holds 38m3 in total, so this will give you a rough guide on how many containers (or part containers) will be required. Our team can help you to work out a more specific total for your possessions.

Frequently Asked Questions
I had my removal booked with another company and they haven’t turned up and won’t return my calls. Can you move me today?
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 non contactable 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 white goods 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.
There is no requirement to take apart your furniture, but anything you can do to speed up the process will save you money in the long run. If you are confident in disassembling your furniture, it will definitely help speed up the process and can save you storage space in your container. Our tip is to store all bolts, brackets etc in a sturdy container or ziplock bag and tape it to the furniture, so it will be there when you need it. If you need our removalists to take apart your furniture for you, this is a service that we provide.
This will depend on your preparations. If the furniture is disassembled, everything is properly packed and labelled and all items are placed in the centre of each room, this will cut down on the collection and drop-off times enormously.
All of our removalists and on-site staff are highly trained to prevent any damage. We also have comprehensive insurance to cover your possessions while they are in our care. Every effort will be taken to ensure there is no damage in the storage or removal process, but you can rest assured you are covered if there are any unforeseen incidents.
