  • No need to inconvenience your friends and family by storing large pieces of furniture and boxes at their house.

Tips For Long-Term Storage

Storing your items over a long period can be costly and risky depending on the items you need to store and for how long. With these simple and effective storage tips, you can get the most out of your storage unit and guarantee your goods will be in the same condition as you left them:

1. Select the right size

At Storage World, we have a range of unit sizes available to suit a variety of needs. If you’re not sure what size is right for you, our dedicated team of expert storage professionals can help you find the best size unit for your budget. To get a better idea of our unit sizes, check out our online size guide.

2. Organise and group items 

Remember to sort through your things before packing up. You may find that you no longer need or use certain items anymore. By donating or recycling these, you can reduce the size of your unit and cut your long-term storage costs.

3. Pack and organise properly 

Make sure you pack your items properly and protect any fragile items with quality boxes and bags. To make self storage even more convenient and hassle-free, we offer quality and affordable packing materials at our on-site box shop.

4. Store vertically to maximise space

Store vertically, the better use you make of the vertical space the less floor space you require. This is the most economical way to use a storage unit.

A Quick and Easy Process

Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company

Alex Jones

Same Day Move In

Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!

Ed Green-Moore

Extremely Helpful Staff

Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.

Trolleys and Good Lighting

Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.

Business Self Storage

Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
