Features of storage facilities on the Gold Coast

Finding a good storage facility is great; you get to unclutter your home, store your valuables or keep possessions there while moving house, with the assurance of knowing your belongings are safe. Unfortunately, not all storage facilities on the Gold Coast can offer your items the same degree of safety and a good way to distinguish between good quality facilities and their poor quality counterparts, is to assess some of their features.

Generally speaking all the best storage providers will meet a few baseline criteria to ensure that your goods are protected, however the best of the storage facilities on the Gold Coast will go above and beyond to make sure that your storage needs are catered for. As a general rule, you should settle for nothing less than a secure, clean and well maintained storage facility, that also offers comprehensive service options.

Finding reputable storage facilities on the Gold Coast

With so many options to choose from, it can be somewhat of a challenge to find a storage facility on the Gold Coast that meets and exceeds your basic storage needs. The first step to finding the best storage provider on the Gold Coast is to do some research. Look for a provider that is dedicated to servicing the storage needs of all home and business owners Gold Coast wide. An easy way to tell when a facility is well organised and effectively run is by assessing their prices and the value for money that they offer. If a storage provider is genuinely committed to bringing reasonable prices and good service to their customers, they will often take steps to match the perfect solution with your needs. After all, the last thing you want is to be paying extra for a storage unit that is unnecessarily big, or trying to cram your possessions into a unit that is too small. It is also wise to contact a storage facility and make some enquiries about the options and prices that they offer. You can do this by calling them or contacting them online – either way should give you a good idea of how helpful they are.

Three things you should always look for

If you have found a storage facility with options and prices that appeal to you, there are three main things that you should look for before committing to hire a storage unit. To get the clearest idea of the facility’s quality, it is usually best to have a look around in person.

Well maintained facilities

Perhaps the most important thing to look for is how well the storage facilities are maintained. If you can see evidence of mouldy growth, rusty fittings and pests, then chances are the facility is not adequately maintained. Storing your belongings in a poorly maintained unit can give rise to a whole host of issues, including water damage, pest interference and mould or mildew. This is why it is so important to find a facility with pest management systems in place and clean, well-maintained storage units.

Security features

Another important part of storing your goods is making sure that they are safe and secure. Perhaps have a chat to the staff at your Gold Coast storage facility and ask about their security systems. Sometimes, you will be able to see evidence of security safeguards such as surveillance cameras and security warnings, which are usually indicative of a well-managed and secure facility.

A variety of storage options

Finally, it is important that your storage facility offers you storage solutions that actually fulfil your needs. There is no point paying extra for a storage unit that is too big for your items, nor is it worth spending money on a unit that is too small. Ask the staff at your storage facility about their different storage options and make sure that they can give you a good price on a suitable unit – it could save you time and money in the long run.
