Tips For First Time Self Storage Renters

12 Mar 2022

Ready to rent a self storage unit? You are not alone. Self storage is one of the fastest-growing industries in the world, and Queensland has plenty of locations for you to choose from. But before you sign on the dotted line, let's talk about some things that will make your first experience with renting a self storage space much more enjoyable! First, you need to answer the question:

1.Why do I want a self storage unit?

If your reason for renting is that it'll provide more space in your home, ipswich has many larger units available. However, if you're looking for something smaller and just need some extra room on occasion then maybe our  ipswich self-storage units may be perfect for you!

2.Next up is the size of the unit.

These units can offer small (under 150 square feet), medium (150 - 500 sq ft), and large (500+ sq ft) sized storage depending on what you are storing or how long you plan to store things.

3.Different Features

Self Storages also offers a variety of different features for customers who are looking to rent self storage space! Some storage locations offer on-site managers and others allow you to rent by the hour you must find what is best suited for your needs when choosing your new self-storage facility!

Self Storage units are also available for both personal and commercial use. If you need temporary storage or extra space, then self storage is the perfect solution!

5.Climate Controlled

Self Storage can come in a variety of options including climate controlled and non-climate control. We highly recommend that you take into consideration what your needs may be as to which unit type will best suit them before deciding on an option.


Self Storage can be rented monthly, weekly, or even daily. You may want to look into which is the best option for your needs and find out if anything suits you better than others before deciding on what size unit will work best!

7.Is the Location Convenient For You

Not everyone has convenient access to their self storage facility so it's important that when choosing one near home, work, or school that you carefully consider how often you'll need to go back and forth to make sure this won't become an inconvenience for you.

8.Compare Prices and Reviews

If possible try not only comparing prices but also customer reviews from different self storage facilities as these are another great indicator of whether they would be a good fit for your needs!

9.Don't Sign Anything Immediately

You don't want to sign any contracts that will put restrictions on how long you can keep what items in your unit. Make sure whatever contract you're signing is flexible enough so you won't have trouble with getting rid of things when they no longer suit your needs or fit within other rules outlined in the lease agreement.


Self Storage often comes with many different features depending on what kind of facility it's at and if there are any special circumstances involved like environmental concerns because, after all, they're not just boxes full of stuff they're memories too! So make sure you find out more about our Ipswich facilities today by contacting us at instant self-storage or 07 3333 2906.

Best place to store your stuff. It's new/clean and dry, easily accessible and Roy is the most helpful/nicest storage manager you will ever meet. Highly recommended!

Very modern facilities, convenient and materials can easily be moved around and stored. Staff are very helpful and more than willing to go out of their way to make the whole process stress free.
