Self-Storage vs. BoxIT Self-Storage

Published by BoxIT on

When you’re searching for your next company to store your items you’ll be captured by all of their fancy advertising. They promise they will look after your stuff and at the cheapest price. While this may be true, there are lots of things they don’t tell you. Some companies might refuse to store certain items or charge extra fees to give you more access to your items – sometimes with a nasty surprise. Others want to get you to sign a long-term contract. Here at BoxIT we things differently. Here’s why:

Long-Term Contracts

Other storage companies will often try and get you to sign a long-term contract meaning you might end up paying for storage that you don’t really need. BoxIT offers a month-to-month service meaning you only pay for the storage you actually need.  No long-term contracts or commitments, no minimum term, you just pay for each month in advance. Keep your items in storage for a few weeks, a few months, or longer — it’s up to you. You can easily cancel any time you like.

No nasty surprises

We’re upfront on what you’ll be charged, and make sure we keep you posted on if anything changes. This includes all applicable fees when commencing your storage, on a month-to-month basis and what fees are incurred at the end of your storage period.

Convenient, to your door service

The worst thing about traditional self storage is that you must trek to outer suburbs to access your belongings. Do you really want to carry heavy items on the bus to fill a space with the little amount of items you have? With BoxIT, say goodbye to this nuisance.

We deliver, collect and return your goods on demand and usually within 24 hours. We can also deliver to a different address if need be.


Some companies might offer self-storage for cheap, but they often have inadequate storage units that provide you with little value. In some cases, poor security practices at a self-storage unit can result in someone stealing your belongings. BoxIT provide you with a safe, secure environment where you can keep your valuables. Your boxes are even covered by insurance up to the value of $150 per box!

Our facility has 24/7 alarm monitoring, CCTV and fire suppression systems to keep your belongings safe. We take security very seriously.

For even more peace of mind, we barcode each box and supply tamper evident seals. This means we can track where your belongings are always , as well as ensure they are never opened.

Easy to Manage Online

When you place your order you will have an account setup which will show you all upcoming charges, and you are able to completely manage your storage including ending your storage and accessing your boxes.
