Thinking About a Self-Storage Facility? – Learn How To Select The Right Facility!

Packing with Family

In the last few years, self-storage facilities have been consistently thriving around Sydney, Australia. The facilities are perhaps the most thriving business since many people are in the process of moving or establishing their commercial ventures.

Nevertheless, space is steadily becoming a major concern to many private and startup business owners. Thus, the demand for storage facilities has increasingly heightened just as the number of such facilities.

How do you select the right kind of storage facility? Well, let’s take a look at some of the tips and insights that you should take into account when analyzing and selecting a storage facility. With the insights, you will manage to find a unit that suits your needs while at the same time offering you convenience and security.


Among your primary concerns should be the location of the facility. A storage facility that is located very far from your target office or residential house could lead to a lot of wastage in time and money. Such costs and time wastage can be incurred on transporting back and forth from the facility. The efficiency and effectiveness of the entire process can be gained when the facility is closer to the business or house.


Apart from the location, the size of the unit is also important. As a customer who is seeking a self-storage unit, you should approximate the size of the space that you are looking for, and find a facility that can meet your needs. You don’t want to rush your way through the process and end up selecting a unit that is too big or too small.


Different storage facilities offer different types of services. There are multiple types of belongings that can be stored in storage units. Hence, you should check with the storage facility to find out the type of services that they offer. The move will also help you learn about their terms of engagement. Some facilities offer additional services which result in extra charges.

A good example is pieces of art; they need regulated temperature to survive. Thus, they will attract additional charges for the special and regulated services like extra security and climate control. The same case applies to other “pick-up and drop” belongings.

The last factor that you want to consider is the costs associated with the storage services. The best way to learn whether you can keep up with the costs is making a list of the belongings that you want to store in the facility and coming up with a monthly budget that you can keep up with. After that, you can find a facility that fits within your budget, while offering you good terms. When establishing the budget, account for the deposits associated, monthly fees, and other extra services.
