Storage & Service
What can I store?
There are lots of examples of what you might want to store in BoxIt! boxes. These include books, clothing, documents, old toys, sentimental objects and the like. However you would want to avoid really fragile objects (glass, pottery etc). If in doubt give us a call, and always wrap it in bubble wrap.
What can't I store?
What size are your boxes?
How long do I have to pack my boxes?
What is the weight limit for your boxes?
Do you offer discounts for bulk orders?
Do you store oversized goods?
Yes we do. If your oversized good is not listed on our website, get in touch to see if we can accommodate it –1300 859 447
Can I come and inspect my boxes?
Sure. We just need 24 hours to organise this for you. You won’t be charged a delivery fee, but the per box retrieval fee still applies.
Can I store my boxes for less than 3 months?
Of course you can, but our minimum charge is always for 3 months.
Do I have to store the boxes? Can I use them just for moving?
If you just want to use our boxes for moving house that’s perfectly fine. Once you’re finished with them just send them back and we will credit you the difference between the time you have had them and how long you have left on your account.
What happens if I break a box?
Accidents happen – thats life! As such we allow each customer a 1 box = no charge policy. However any additional boxes that are damaged and need to be replaced will charged at $55.00 inc GST.
Can I buy your boxes outright?
Of course – they are pretty special. Each box can be purchased for $55.00.
Insurance & Security
How much are my goods insured for?
The contents of each of your boxes stored with us is insured up to the value of $150.00 PER BOX. This will cover you against theft, loss or damage while the boxes are in our custody. Note that we cannot accept liability for fragile items (thats why we advise you not to put them in the box!) You should also check your home and contents policy – this also usually offers cover for items kept outside your house.
What security do you have in place?
Our facility offers business grade security features. It has CCTV, 24/7 alarm monitoring, fire detection and suppression systems as well as access controls. Only our staff are allowed in the facility, and we NEVER use third party courier services.
How will I know if someone has opened my box?
All of our boxes come with complimentary barcoded tamper proof security tags. You should place these on each end of the box and record the number. We will also record the number on pickup. As these tags are unique you will instantly be able to see if they are different.
Deliveries & Pickups
How do I get my boxes back?
Simple! You need to fill out one of the following forms, depending on what your plans are:
What is the turn around time for returning a box?
99% of the time we will have a box back to you the next business day. We deliver Monday-Friday between 10:30am-3:30pm. If you need your boxes sooner or outside those hours, call us on 1300 889 837 and we will see what we can do (additional charges apply).
What areas do you service?
We offer our service to all of metropolitan Melbourne, and a little bit beyond. If in doubt give us a call and we can confirm. Also, we do allow customers to collect / drop off boxes – in that case we don’t care where you live!
Can you drop off / pick up at different addresses?
Sure, won’t be a problem! When you complete our form requesting delivery of your boxes, just provide the new address there.
What delivery time frames do you offer?
We deliver and pick-up boxes between the hours of 10:30am-3:30pm Monday-Friday. While we do try and fulfill specific time requests, actual delivery time depends on the day and amount of boxes to be delivered. Our driver will always call you 15-20 minutes prior to delivery to ensure you are there.
Requests for boxes outside of our normal delivery schedule will incur additional fees and need to be arranged by contacting our office.
Can you driver wait for me?
Our driver is happy to wait 15 minutes for you to get some things organised and packed. After that though they will have to leave – they’re busy people!
What happens if I miss a delivery?
If you haven’t specified for us to leave the delivery at your door we will attempt to call you. If that fails, we will try to redeliver another day. Note failure to deliver will incur additional delivery fees per re-arranged delivery.
