Why you Should Choose Mobile Over Traditional Storage

Mobile storage is becoming increasingly popular with people looking for affordable and convenient storage. Whether you’re moving house, heading overseas or just looking to rid your house of some clutter, using a storage service can really help you create the space you need. What type of storage you use though depends on your budget, time and individual circumstances.

Mobile storage is a convenient option that has become increasingly popular in recent times. Here’s why we think you should choose this option over traditional storage:

You don’t have to go anywhere

With mobile storage, you don’t have to leave your house in order to organise it. We bring a truck with your storage module on it straight to you and then load it on the spot. Then, once it’s full, we’ll deliver it to the storage facility. Want it back again? We’ll deliver it straight back to your door and unload it for you. You’ve already got enough to organise with your move, holiday or decluttering tasks. Make the storage component of your planning as simple and easy as possible.

It’s cheaper

Traditional storage options can be costly. The pricing is not always easy to understand either. Mobile storage can be a much more cost-effective option, especially when there’s a standard flat rate charge like we offer. We bring your storage module to you and pack it on the spot for a flat fee of $350. Ongoing storage costs for your module are then $139 per month (including GST). When you’re ready to get your goods back again we’ll deliver them to you and unload them for a flat fee of $350. Having clear prices means you can budget for your storage needs and use the money you save on something more interesting.

It limits your contact with people

In these COVID-19 times, we need to limit the amount of time we spend with strangers. With mobile storage, you don’t have to leave your house or have contact with many people at all compared to using traditional storage options. Apart from the people who’ll be packing your module and driving the truck it comes in, you won’t have contact with anyone else at all. It’s a great way to stay safe and get your items where they need to go.

You don’t have to hire a truck

When you use traditional storage options, you need to find a way to get your items from your house to the storage facility. Typically, people hire a truck to fill and pack themselves and then drive to the storage location. Or some people hire removalists to do that part of the job for them. It’s another expense you need to budget for and another company you’ll need to deal with in the process.

This is not the case with our mobile storage option. With us, you’ll deal with one company for the whole task. We’ll come to you, pack your items and take them to the storage facility for you. And we’ll deliver them back to you when the time comes as well.

Makes decluttering easy

Want to clear out your house of clutter in the quickest way possible? Mobile storage will help you do that. Set yourself a deadline and then get to work on the cleaning. Once you’re done we’ll be there with your storage module so you can load up any of those extra items you want to get out of the house. It’s the perfect solution for making extra room in your home. It’s so convenient and cost-effective, you’ll be able to hold onto those items you might have otherwise have had to get rid of.

No double-handling of items

When you use traditional storage options, there’s a lot of people involved who will need to handle your items. Someone will need to get them from your house and into a truck, and then they’ll need to be taken off the truck and placed into the storage facility. And not all of these steps will be done by the same person.

With mobile storage, your items only need to be handled once. Rather than going into a truck to be taken out again later, your items will go directly into your storage module right at your home. Once the truck arrives at the storage facility, the whole module will be taken off the truck and placed into its permanent location. That means your items are safer and handled far less than with traditional storage options.

As you can see, mobile storage offers many advantages over traditional storage solutions. If you’re in Sydney and looking for an affordable mobile storage option, we’re here to help. For more information on how we can help call us on 1300 366 522 today.
