Storage options in Canberra?

By Blingiton - 1 February 2012 15

Hi Rioters

I’m in need of some storage space equivalent to a 3-4 car garage for 24 months.  The self-storage facilities in Canberra are fairly exy due to their overhead costs.  Does anyone have any ideas on more cost-effective storage options or know of anyone with a large empty 3-4 car garage/storage space which might be available to rent?

Hope to hear from you soon:)

What’s Your opinion?

…and I could do meals on wheels out of the camper in exchange for free parking and storage. We’re really cooking with gas now Rioters!

Rent an industrial unit In Mitchell/Hume/Qbn that has a kitchenette and bathroom and move out of your apartment. That way you get to claim all your rent as a business expense and it’s a really short trip to work.

And as a bonus advertise at ANU that you are a panel beater and do cheap jobs on cqampervans. Before you know it you’ll have your choice of accommodation for months at a time.
Or cut out the industrial unit all together and just take a campervan off of the hands of a uni student. They won’t miss it for 6 weeks.

Thanks Poplar & Deejay. Great suggestions. I need regular access to the storage space for my business. It really needs to be at least within Canberra or Queanbeyan. I think I probably have to conceded defeat with this dilemma. If anyone else has any ideas, I’d love to hear.

One of the best places I’ve come across for storage is a family-owned business, Apple Storage Solutions in Marulan. It’s an hour or so out of Canberra and so much cheaper than storage in Canberra.

Give Garth a ring on 9986 3618 – he’ll sort you out and give you a decent price.

Have you considered storage in Goulburn, Yass, or Cooma? They’ll probably cost less due to lower real estate and employment costs. Assuming you don’t need to get to your things too often, you’ll probably find it much more affordable.

I know…the cost of self-storage is astronomical but I can understand why given all the security costs etc. I have friends living on properties but they are too far out to make it practical. Fingers crossed for an alternative solution. Calling on all golden oldies/empty nesters who have a large garage they’d like to rent out. Please keep the suggestions rolling…I am listening:)

That’s a lot of space you need. Some friends recently went overseas for a year and told me what it would cost for them to store a sentimentally significant vehicle and some personal belongings and I was astounded at the prices. I instead suggested they come out to the farm for a day and help me vermin proof and seal up one of the small sheds. Saved them about $6,000. Unfortunately container trucks can’t get out there otherwise I’d be able to make good use of the land for storage.

Thanks so much for the suggestion:) It’s a good one. I’m just lacking somewhere to plonk a pod – I’m in an apartment.

Hmm, I just checked their website and they said they don’t service my ACT postcode. Yet, I saw one recently in Bruce….? Anyway….

That’s a pretty large amount of space, most households can be squeezed into the space of between a 1-2 car garage

Blingiton 6:07 pm 01 Feb 12

Unfortunately not. A good idea though – thanks for trying:)
