Useful Tips for Self Storage Cairns
Hints To Save You Time And Money
Selecting A Storage Space
Discuss your needs with Diane at Centenary Self Storage to ensure you only pay for what you require. An efficiently packed small space will cost less than a large space. However, if you need to access your storage space frequently, a well organised larger space with racks and archive boxes may be more convenient for you.
Planning Your Storage Space
Large, heavy items you can stack other items on are usually stored at the back. Work forward and upwards with lighter, more fragile items. Store goods you'll need to access at the front of the storage space or leave a walkway to the rear if necessary. Using professional storage cartons and accessories (available from Centenary Self Storage) provides maximum protection and makes stowing and unpacking easier and safer.
How Much Will A Storage Unit Hold?
1.5 x 1.5m space holds one room of belongings
1.5 x 3.0m space holds 2-3 rooms

The Storage Agreement
Centenary Self Storage uses the standard self storage agreement to protect the storer and our business. It is an important document - be sure to read it thoroughly. If you have any questions ask us.
What Can't I Store?
Common sense and state and federal laws determine what can and can't be stored. However, under your self storage agreement you can't store hazardous, dangerous, illegal, stolen, perishable, environmentally harmful goods or explosive goods.
