Storage places?

    Recommended Posts

    Guest MandiMR2

    Can anyone recommend any storage companies local to Melrose Park please?

    I'm here in Adelaide now on my visa validation & research trip, with plans to return permanently in Jan & will need storage facilities for our 20ft container of belongings that will shortly follow our arrival.

    It would be good to visit any suggested places whilst I'm here to compare quotes & included services.

    Advance thanks & appreciation for any help.

    Have you already sent your container then? Usually the shipping companies will offer some storage at one end or the other if you need it but unless you are going travelling then most people are usually in the situation of having a long term rental organised before their container arrives. We stayed in the UK for 7 weeks after sending our container and managed to time it that we picked up the keys to the long term rental just a couple if days before the container was delivered. I'd just check the phone book or google for places if you're going to visit.

    Thanku, I'm well aware of using the phone book & google to aid my research, I am seeking personnel recommendations from fellow members who have used any such companies for storage.

    I was trying to be helpful by explaining that most people don't need storage therefore you might not get many responses, but I will be happy to be proved wrong. Given it usually takes 9-10 weeks for them to get here it's quite unusual for people to have containers arriving before they get long term rental and you don't often here people asking about it unless they are going to be travelling. Hopefully someone will be along to help though.

    Thanku & many apologies if I sounded ungrateful at your post, I should have explained my situation more clearly in view that I appear to be in the minority to require storage. My hubby & I will be staying with a friend initially for a few months until we find suitable long term rental, so consequently we need an alternative place to store our household belongings. Yes I've had a quote from the shipping company we've assigned, but it will remain in Port Adelaide & we would prefer storing it closer so we can gain access more conveniently. I just wanted to compare other storage companies, plus I'm a huge believer in supporting local businesses.

    Thanku again, Mandi

    A friend hired a unit at Kennards down at Goodwood. Helpful staff and lots of choice of size of unit etc and you can get in and out anytime you need to (via security gates obviously). They have other locations as well http://www.kss.com.au/
