5 Ways Holloway Storage Meets Your Long-Term Storage Needs in Sydney

long-term storage needs in sydney

People find themselves in need of long-term storage for a variety of reasons. Some accept a new job requiring them to live overseas temporarily. Others feel the need to downsize their home but don’t want to rush getting rid of items. Whatever the reason, if you find yourself in need of long-term storage in or around Sydney, we hope you’ll consider keeping your belongings with us at Holloway Storage. To make your decision that much easier, we’ve gathered 5 important points to consider before renting a long-term storage unit, and the reasons why renting with Holloway is the best decision you’ll make.

1. The Distance Between You and Your Storage Unit

As you begin vetting storage companies, it’s important to consider the distance between your unit and your home, especially if you will need to access your unit at some point. While you may get a better rate using a more remote storage facility, you must carefully weigh whether the price break is worth the extra drive to get there.

If you live in or around Sydney, odds are good that there is a Holloway Storage facility near you. We are proud to have facilities in 11 areas of Sydney, each of which offer exceptional long-term storage units.

2. The Option of Using a Mobile Storage Unit

Consider using a storage company that offers mobile storage unit delivery. There are storage companies who will deliver an empty storage unit directly to your home, allowing you to fill the unit at your convenience. This type of service saves you precious time as you’re able to pack all at once rather than making multiple trips to fill a storage unit at a permanent location.

Finding the time to move your belongings to and from a storage unit can be frustrating. That’s why Holloway offers front door delivery service. We will happily deliver an empty storage container to your property. Once you’ve filled the container, just give us a call and we’ll pick the entire unit up and store it safely at our facility.

3. Ask About the Ease of Accessing Your Unit

When it comes to accessing your long-term unit, not all storage facilities are created equal. It’s important to talk to your storage facility rep and ask about their hours of operation. Do their hours work for your schedule? For example, having your items stored at a facility that is closed on the weekends may be inconvenient, especially if you work a traditional 9 – 5 job during the work week.

At Holloway, we make accessing your unit easy and convenient. Simply call the location where your unit is stored, and we will happily schedule a time for you to come by and access your unit. When you are ready to empty your unit, we can deliver yours back to your home with as little as 24-hour notice.

4. What Security Features are In Place?

Ensuring your belongings are safe while in storage should be one of your top priorities. It is important to contact any storage facility you’re considering using to ask about the security measures they have in place. It’s also a good idea to visit the location and get a look for yourself. Does the facility appear secure? Is the property properly lit in the evenings? Is the property fenced and, if so, is the fencing secure and free of holes or tears?

Holloway Storage takes the security of your belongings seriously. That’s why we offer 24/7 closed-circuit-tv surveillance at all Holloway storage locations. We also employ on-site security personnel to patrol the property. We want you to know your treasured items are in good hands with Holloway.

5. Is the Facility Highly Reviewed?

There is no better indicator to the quality of a storage facility than the reviews that are left by customers who have used that facility’s services. Always take the time to ask your facility for references and to read reviews left by customers on the company’s Google Business page or social media pages.

At Holloway, we’re proud of the 5-star reviews we’ve received from happy customers. You can scroll to the bottom of our website FAQ page to read a few. Or you can click here to read our reviews from our Google Business page. Expect to see plenty of complimentary terms like “friendly”, “efficient”, and “consistently excellent”. Customer service…it’s what we do at Holloway.

Finding the right facility for your long-term storage needs must start with careful assessment of the storage companies in your area. Find out which company checks the most “must-have” boxes off your list of desirable features. We do hope Holloway Storage is at the top of your list. We think you’ll find our prices are competitive (we even price match so, if you find a competitor with a lower rate, just let us know!), our employees are knowledgeable and friendly…and our customer service? Well, it’s second to none.

Contact us today to discuss your storage needs. Store your belongings the right way…with Holloway.
