How long does it take to move into my unit?

As you probably know, self storage is a great way to store your belongings whether you’re moving, going through a renovation, expanding your business or when you just don’t have enough space at home. But how long does it actually take to move all of your stuff into a storage unit at our conveniently located facility? Below, we unpack what you need to know about the move-in process.

Moving in

You’ve decided to go for it and invest in the convenience of self storage. Outstanding! We’ve simplified the move-in process just for you. Here’s our 3-step process:

Size and time

Your first step is to establish how much space you will need and for how long. You can do this by using our handy space estimator . Our size guide provides helpful visuals on what each unit can hold. Alternatively, you are welcome – and encouraged – to reach out to our team of storage experts who can help you select a unit for your needs.

Sign your contract

Once you’ve selected a unit and confirmed availability, you will sign a straightforward storage licence agreement before moving your belongings into your unit. The contract takes about 10 minutes to complete, after which you can move into your personal or business self storage unit immediately if you choose.

Pack and move

If your items are already packed up and ready for transportation, StorageWise offers a *free move-in service  with professional movers to get you settled. Alternatively, you can purchase top-quality boxes, locks, tape and more from our stocked box shop  and schedule our movers at your convenience.

With StorageWise, the moving process couldn’t be easier. Our friendly team is always ready to assist and can help you secure a unit in under an hour. Simply select a storage unit size, sign the rental contract, and you have the freedom to move in immediately!

Moving out

When it’s time to say goodbye, follow our easy steps for a stress-free move-out.

Give notice

If you no longer require your unit, you only have to give our team 7 days notice if you’re a residential customer and 1 month’s notice if you occupy a Business Storage unit. As an added benefit, if you choose to end your contract earlier than planned, we will also refund you any unused storage days.

Arrange movers

Once you’re ready to move your items out of storage, our team can help you book with our professional movers or a local van hire/removal company to get your possessions to your destination quickly and stress-free.

When you need hassle-free storage with an immediate move-in option, call StorageWise. Our team is here to answer any questions and help get you into your new unit as quickly as possible. No muss, no fuss. We look forward to hearing from you!
