Frequently Asked Questions
How does your Mobile Self Storage business work?
Very easy. Simply work out how much storage you need, then ring us to have one or more storage qubes delivered to your door. You can pack them yourself (or if required we can assist you at an hourly rate of $75/hr), then we simply collect your storage qube and store it in our secure warehouse until you require them again.
This system saves you time and money in not having to double handle your storage.
How much can I store in one qube?
Each storage qube will hold up to 8 cubic meters which is the contents of between 1-2 rooms of storage. So for a 4 bedroom house you may require between 3 to 5 Storage qubes depending on the amount of furniture you have.
