What is Self Storage?

Storage Gold Coast, you can truststorage gold coast

In general terms, Self-storage is a service that provides individuals and businesses with temporary storage space for their belongings. The Big Box storage Gold Coast units are typically rented on a short-term basis and offer a secure and accessible solution for those in need of extra space. Customers can store various items, such as furniture, seasonal equipment, documents, or inventory.
Self-storage facilities come in various sizes, offering flexibility to accommodate different storage needs. They are generally equipped with security measures like surveillance cameras and access controls to ensure the safety of stored items.

Why Use Self Storage

Self-storage proves invaluable during moving, redecorating, decluttering, or when needing a secure space for items not regularly in use. It offers the extra benefit of giving you back more space for decluttering your home or garage, storing seasonal items, or preserving sentimental belongings. Businesses use it for inventory management, archive storage, and expansion flexibility. With easy accessibility and affordability, self-storage ensures peace of mind and organisational efficiency.

Self Storage U-Store

You can rent one storage space or several storage spaces depending on your needs. Once you have rented the storage space, you can store any household or commercial item as long as it is not perishable, flammable, or illegal. To assist you in choosing the correct size of storage space we have developed our size estimator to calculate just the right storage space for you.


Once you’ve rented a space you will need a padlock to lock the space. Purchase one of a variety of locks from Big Box Self Storage or you can use your own padlock. You’ll also find a great selection of Boxes and wrapping materials in our Box Shop.

U-Keep the Key

Once your padlock is in use, you are the only one who retains the key (unless you have authorised Big Box to hold a key on your behalf), no one else will have access to your storage space unless they are authorised by the storer, and have the key.

U-Come and Go

Once you have moved into your self storage space you can come and go as often as you like. Access to a customer’s storage space is unlimited and free and is subject to the general hours of access for the property.

Unlike most storage companies, at Big Box Self Storage we are flexible enough to provide storage on a month-to-month, week-to-week, or day-by-day basis if required. However, most storage is taken on a month-to-month agreement.
