Well, it is a common question these days, and it’s a good one! Mobile Storage adds a whole new dimension to conventional storage options and is the way of the future. It is by far the most efficient and cost-effective way to store your belongings. In some instances, it can be up to 50% cheaper than engaging the services of traditional Self-Storage companies.

Instead of you driving and hauling your goods to a Self-Storage facility, the Mobile Storage unit will be brought straight to your home or office to only load once which avoids all the double handling. It is very convenient and we even provide custom-made furniture blankets and tie-downs to protect your goods… something that only 1800 We Store It provides free of charge!

We can deliver the Mobile Storage unit wherever and whenever you want it for you to load at your own pace, or alternatively, we can send our experienced and accredited removalists and they will do all the heavy loading and lifting for you. No more maneuvering a dolly load of fragile goods from your vehicle to a storage locker.

The Mobile Storage unit can simply be loaded and then stored as opposed to hiring and loading a truck, only to drive to unload the goods into a self-storage facility. The latter is obviously a waste of time, effort, and money.

If you choose to have the unit stored at our facility, you get to enjoy peace of mind knowing that your goods are under 24/7 CCTV security monitoring, plus we do have a full-time warehouse manager onsite.

There are two types of mobile storage offers:

1- Mobile Serviced-Storage

2- Mobile Self-Storage.

Mobile Serviced-Storage

This the perfect choice if you want us to take care of everything for you. It is a ‘set and forget’ type of service where our professional removalists bring the Mobile Storage unit straight to your doorstep and load all of your precious goods.

Mobile Serviced Storage has become extremely popular as it is the safest and most cost-effective option to store your goods. Moreover, you don’t have to worry about items not fitting or getting damaged. You can sit back and relax, knowing that everything will turn out just fine.

Mobile Self-Storage

This is also a great option, but it does leave you to do all of the heavy lifting, loading and unloading of the mobile storage unit. It is only advisable if you have the time and some extra hands on deck to help with all the work.

We at 1800 We Store It always recommend the Mobile Serviced Storage option as it gets rid of all the and stress and hassle of doing it all by yourself. You can also rest assured that all of your goods will be carefully and securely loaded, ensuring that no items get damaged and that your goods are safe and sound.
