How to Save Money When Choosing a Storage Space

September 07, 2021 by Antone Boustani

Choosing a self storage space to store your stuff can become daunting. There are many options available. Here are some quick areas of comparison.
 
·   Choosing where you want to store – prices vary location to location. Often storage is more economical in outer suburbs and regional areas. However, proximity to work or home is important. Saving a few dollars for a long drive in traffic may be a false economy. Sydney Storage has many cheap storage options. It is good to visit different centres to see what the price represents. Is it clean and well maintained or not?
 
·   Prices may vary within the same property – the same size unit is often lower rent if it is on an upper level. Driveway units offer the most convenience and are often higher rent. Self storage prices are similar to hotel prices. The penthouse is the most costly and the room with a view to another building not so.
 
·   Watch out for additional fees – Some storage companies charge cleaning fees and administration charges. These are normally only a one-off payment on move-in or move-out.
 
·   Beware of Access Charges – some storage companies will apply a charge for you to access your goods. However, most self storage companies do not have such fees. This is mostly the case with removalist storage companies.


 
·   Pack your space well – Careful and tight packing means you can fit in to a surprisingly small space. One trick is packing boxes inside wardrobes. Another is to store lounges on their ends. Picking the correct moving boxes is key. Can I stack them 10 high and utilise my space more efficiently.
 
·   Make full use of height – storage companies do not charge for height, just floor area. This means packing high also enables you to take a smaller space. Renting shelving and using them to stack moving boxes is a great idea.
