The movable container allows you to store furniture and other valuables for as long duration you need. Often owned by the Sydney removalists, they are themselves responsible for the deposit of your belongings in the container that you have reserved.

Disadvantage: you do not have free access to your container, you will need to make an appointment with your mover to plan its opening which generates a handling fee.

2 – The Self-Storage Centre: You Can Access Your Business Anytime

More and more widespread at the expense of traditional furniture storage, especially in Sydney, self-storage centres, offer an additional advantage: permanent access to your belongings. You have a key or a code to access your own stored goods during the opening hours of your centre. You are in charge of all the operations: deposit of the furniture, arrangement of the storage, etc.

Advantages:

  • The security guards or self-storage centres are very secure. Video surveillance system or guarding for some places, your box is in a safe place.
  • The boxes are ventilated, waterproof and sometimes heated.
  • Small +: some centres offer on-site packaging and packaging shop to provide you with the necessary equipment for storing and storing your belongings: cardboard, tape, bubble protections, labelling etc.

Disadvantages: These solutions are often relatively expensive and represent a real additional cost for your move. Especially since these centres are in the outskirts and often several kilometres from your home. When we know the source of stress that is already present during a move, why make it complicated when it can be simple?

3 – The Furniture Guard Between Individuals: The Easy and Cheap Solution
