Frequently Asked Questions about storage Queensland and New South Wales
Do Insulated Units Offer Better Protection For Some Items?

Insulation and protection from the weather can help protect some items in storage, despite how tempting it may be to simply store them in a cheaper unit without climate control. Determining which items belong in such a unit can be difficult, though, if you aren't sure what to look for. Guardian Self Storage, the premier choice for storage Queensland and New South Wales, can help you work out how an insulated unit may benefit you. If you have any other self storage questions, you can find an answer by checking our website or getting in touch with our friendly staff at your nearest facility.

All items that could become damaged if left outside on your back patio should be stored in a unit with insulation. Daily variations in ambient temperature and humidity may cause damage to some rather fragile items, but an insulated storage unit can protect your items from these variations. These background fluctuations are particularly damaging to leather furniture and antique wooden furniture, which means they should be placed into storage units with insulations. Similarly, clothing and paperwork can become damaged if stored incorrectly in a non-climate-controlled unit, so it is usually easier and safer to store them in an insulated unit instead. Physical media also requires controlled conditions, which means the right choice is an insulated storage unit. Insulated storage units are the only safe choice when you are trying to store items that are sensitive to changes in the ambient conditions.

What Are The Available Unit Sizes?

Storage needs differ from person to person, for obvious reasons. If you need to find some extra storage space for all of the items in your spare room, you're going to need a much smaller unit than someone storing an old, vintage truck. There are multiple units on offer at Guardian Self Storage for all of your Queensland and New South Wales self storage needs, and we can help you work out which will best suit your requirements. Get in touch with your nearest facility to find an answer for any storage question you might have.

A healthy variety of storage units available is available at all of our facilities, which makes sure everyone can find the space they quired. We have some small and affordable units great for anyone who needs just a little extra space, typically measuring 1m x 1. 5m or 1m x 3m. Storing a small amount of business archives safely or packing away a 2 bedroom apartment typically requires a little extra space, which may necessitate our 2m x 3m and 3m x 3m units. Units measuring in at 3m x 4m and 3m x 5m are best suited for storing the archives of a larger business, or a 2-3 bedroom home. Storing a vehicle of any sort, be it a car, truck, or boat, typically requires a larger unit, and they also need to offer drive-in access. In these cases, we offer 3m x 6m units that can suit your needs. Importantly, you should confirm what space is available at your nearest facility, as each facility can only offer storage units that aren't already occupied, and their occupancy levels change as time goes on.

Can I Do Anything To Best Store My Mattress?

It can be difficult to correctly store a mattress owing to its large dimensions. To be stored properly, it needs to be cleaned, covered, and transported suitably. Guardian Self Storage, the number one choice for all self storage in Queensland and New South Wales, can help you understand what you need to do to make sure your mattress has been properly stored. Our friendly team will be more than happy to answer any other self storage questions you might have, so feel free to contact your nearest facility. Making sure your mattress is safe in storage requires some forthought. Start by airing out the mattress after cleaning it with a vacuum cleaner. Soft, breathable plastic wraps make for a suitable cover for the mattress, though moisture will be trapped in by heavier plastics. When you're ready to move the mattress between your home and the storage unit, you should consider moving it in a van and not on the roof of your car, as both the wind and weather can cause damage. It is important that the mattress is left flat on the floor so that none of the coils will settle out of place. Weight on top of the mattress can damage it over time, especially in long-term storage, so make sure there is nothing atop of it. By taking these measures, your mattress can be stored appropriately.

What Can Be Stored In A Non-Climate-Controlled Unit?

Opting for a non-climate-controlled storage unit is typically cheaper and easier than a climate-controlled option, especially as they're more commonly found. These storage units are best used for certain types of items, which can make storage more cost-effective for some of your items. Working out what type of items belong in a non-climate-controlled unit is easy with Guardian Self Storage, the local choice for all self storage in Queensland and New South Wales. You can reach out to your nearest friendly facility to help find the answer to any storage questions you might have.

Storage in a non-climate-controlled unit is best suited for any item that can tolerate small changes in humidity or temperature. Vehicles of most varieties, including cars, boats, and trucks are typically quite well-suited for non-climate-controlled units, though antique vehicles can prove to be an exception. Dishes and tools are also suited for storage in a non-climate-controlled unit, and doing so may help save space in a more expensive unit. While most furniture needs to be stored in a climate-controlled storage unit, you can store any furniture made of plastic or metal in a non-climate-controlled space. Any items that you would usually store in a shed or outside of your home, such as equipment for your lawn, can also be easily and safely stored in any storage unit that doesn't have climate control.

Are There Steps I Can Take To Make Sure My Memborabilia Has Been Stored Properly?

Storing items that hold significant value to you can be emotionally difficult, and it makes sense that you'd want to make sure they're as safe as possible. Fortunately, with Guardian Self Storage and our expert advice for self storage in Queensland and New South Wales, you'll be able to keep anything safe while it's in storage, no matter how fragile it may be. Your local Guardian Self Storage facility can help you find the answer to any self storage question you could think to ask.

All you need to do to keep your memorabilia safe in storage is take the right precautions first. Nighttime moisture won't be able to damage your items if you wrap them in butchers paper before packing them into containers for storage. You can then further wrap your belongings with bubble-wrap, to help prevent damage during transit. Glass panes are common in pieces of art and picture frames, though they can be easily shattered when the item is being moved; fortunately, corrugated cardboard can be used to reinforce the pane and prevent all damage. To accommodate the larger size of TVs and some extreme picture frames, expandable cardboard boxes are used. During transportation, wine bottles are particularly sensitive and can be easily shattered, but thankfully, you can use a wine-cartoon insert on a cardboard box to help provide extra stability and prevent damage. With the right preparation, any item of value to you can be securely stored without the fear of damage.

How Do I Safely Store Electronics?

There are few things as delicate as electronics, even though they're usually quite expensive. As a result, when it comes time to store electronic items, it can be easy to understand why you might feel concerned about how safe they will be in storage. Guaridan Self Storage, the leading resource for all things related to self storage in Queensland and New South Wales, can help you learn the steps you need to take to make sure your electronics are safe in storage. To answer any self storage questions you have, you can reach out to your local storage facility and our friendly staff would be happy to help.

Provided you have taken the right precautions, your electronics will remain safe while they are in storage. Any batteries that your electronics rely on will be the most delicate item to store, as both alkaline and lithium batteries are known to degrade over time. Removing these batteries from your electronics and storing them seperaterly, though, is all you need to do to make sure they are stored safely. Sometimes, storage may even be safer for your items, especially when they are equipped with storage drives - both hard-disk drives and solid-state drives are more likely to fail while in use compared to when in storage. Before storage, however, it is still best to make sure you create backups of all the important data stored on your laptop, computer, or mobile device, as these drives can still fail in rare cases. With the right preparation, storage for your electronics can be safe and easy.

Is There A Best Way To Protect My Furniture In Storage?

Your collection of furniture might be the most expensive asset in your home, considering how costly individual pieces can be. Resultingly, when it comes time to store your furniture, it makes sense that you'd want to do everything you can to keep the furniture safe. Luckily, finding out what you need to do to protect your belongings is easy with the number one local choice for storage in Queensland and New South Wales, Guardian Self Storage. Get in touch with your local Guardian Self Storage facility to answer any specific storage questions not covered on our website. It's easy to store furniture so long as you prepare it properly. As furniture can occupy quite a bit of space, it may be best to sell some items rather than storing everything. You should properly clean any item you would like to store to remove anything that can damage it, such as dirt or dust. Next, you'll need to disassemble the larger pieces; doing so both maximises the available space in the unit and minimizes the likelihood that the items will be damaged during transport. Now that your items are ready, you just need to pack them for transport by covering everything with a sheet or blanket and adding extra padding around rough corners. Your furniture is now ready to be safely left in storage while you are away.

What Are The Best Practices For Storing A Boat?

Whether you look at it from a practical or fiscal sense, it's hard to say a boat is a minor investment. As a result, leaving them exposed to the elements in your backyard can feel unwise, but it can also be difficult to find a storage space large enough to accommodate a boat. All storage in Queensland and New South Wales is simple, though, with Guardian Self Storage and our expert team, even the storage of a boat. If you have any questions about storage, please don't hesitate to reach out to your local Guardian Self Storage facility.

A few precautionary steps might be all your boat needs to stay safe during storage. First, make sure to thoroughly clean the inside of the boat of anything that may create an odour over time, such as fishing buckets, baits, and moisture. All the salt and debris stuck to the outside of the boat needs to be removed with fresh water, so that you can effectively apply a coat of boat protector to the hull. Leaving the tank full of petrol, disconnecting the batter, and replacing all the oil and collant in the engine are all good ideas, just as they are when leaving a car in storage. Using a boat cover, you can protect the boat from the elements regardless of whether it is being left indoors or underneath a hardstand. With the right preventative measures, you can safely store your boat with ease.
