- We strictly limit the public from entering our storage facilities, unlike self storage where your treasures are stored in a shared facility easily accessible by others

- Our facilities provide greater safety and security than self storage, particularly as they are private facilities that strictly prohibit public entry
- Our storage containers are sealed, unlike self storage units that are open at the top with just large-diametre wire mesh between your belongings and the open air, dust, vermin and theft
- Our storage containers are purpose-built from reinforced steel and stored inside our state-of-the-art 24/7 CCTV security monitored facilities to safeguard the security of your belongings...compare this to other options like a plywood box, secured only by a flimsy hasp, left unprotected on your nature strip
- Our professional, expertly trained packers skillfully and carefully pack your belongings for you. Unlike self storage, where you have to figure out, all on your own, the safest way possible to pack and arrange your belongings.
