There's a chance that you might end up with some space to spare after you pack away all of the belongings and furnishings of a 4-bedroom home into a unit of this size, depending on the extent to which that home was furnished. Alternatively, with a storage unit of this size, you might instead want to leave a car, boat, or, depending on the size, a smaller caravan protected inside and away from the weather. There might be enough room for a small car and some furniture or a couple of motorbikes and some belongings, if you needed to use the space to store both. The large size of a 3m x 6m storage unit makes them excellent choices for anyone that needs to store quite a few belonings.

What Fits Inside Of A 2m x 3m Unit?

Trying to move everything you own into storage on short notice can quickly become a logistical nightmare. Those difficulties only increase if you don't know what size you need your storage unit to be prior to moving in. To avoid that hassle, Guardian Self Storage, the premier choice for storage in Queensland and New South Wales, can help you work out whether a 2m x 3m storage unit will be able to satisfy your requirements.

Provided that your furniture is stored efficiently and your loose belongings are packed into boxes, it's easy to see how everything fits into such a cosy unit, even if that may not immediatlely seem obviously possible.

Storing a small apartment's worth of belongings is easy in a 2m x 3m storage unit.

Are There Things You Can Do Prior To Storage To Keep Clothes Safe?

When it comes to retrieving items you've left in storage, you'd normally expect them to still be in the same condition as when you initially left them. However, when it comes to clothing, minor errors during the storage process can quickly spiral out of control and will leave you with articles of clothing that are ruined, sometimes beyond repair. As the local experts on storage in Queensland and New South Wales, you can rely on Guardian Self Storage to help you preserve any piece of clothing you'd like to keep stored. Should you find yourself with any other questions, the friendly team at your local Guardian Self Storage facility would be more than happy to help answer them.

There are precautions you can take to protect anything you leave in storage, including clothes. A thorough cleaning is the first measure you can take to protect your clothes, even before you've arrived at the storage unit. During a normal day, your clothes can be exposed to a wide variety of adhesive objects, including smoke, food, and dirt, and if you allow these objects to remain on your clothes for months during storage, they might not every come back out again. If the clothes aren't dry, though, they will be targeted by mold and mildew, and if that happens, it's extremely likely that you will need to simply dispose of the clothes. While plastic bins can be more expensive than cardboard boxes, they offer better protection for your clothes, which makes them the better choice for long-term clothes storage. Your clothes will be perfectly safe in long-term storage, provided you've taken the correct precautions.

Can You Operate Your Business Exclusively From A Storage Unit?

Renting out a storage unit can seem like an incredibly attractive option to any small business owner that is struggling to afford their own commercial space, be it a storefront, workshop, or office. Sadly, though, the legislation around operating businesses from storage units can quickly become a hindrance for business owners, and it's best that you understand exactly what you can and cannot do before you make your business entirely dependant on a storage unit. Should you have any questions about using a storage unit in Queensland and New South Wales to operate your business, however, you can rest easy knowing you can trust the team here at Guardian Self Storage for help. If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to our friendly team, who would be more than happy to help.

Even though storage units can be used during the course of business, you will still legally need an office or storefront of some description. It's illegal to use storage units as either office space or a storefront, since the purpose-orientated design of these properties fail to meet the minimum requirements for long-term occupancy as outlined by the government. There is very little, if any, natural light within a storage unit, and typically there is absolutely zero electricity or running water, which means that even if it were legal to utilise these spaces for regular business operations, staff would be extremely uncomfortable and their effectiveness would be impeded. Self-storage is an excellent choice for anyone looking to upscale their physical inventory without needing to pay extra for a larger office or storefront, however. There are multiple industries that can benefit from the low cost of renting a storage unit, including the arts, publishing, and retail. Before you try to save money by moving your business into a storage unit, you may wish to consider how the legal implications may affect you.

Do Storage Units Accept Any Item?

A storage facility is an excellent choice for the majority of your belongings, but that doesn't mean you can leave everything in your possession in a storage unit. Fortunately, with our expert knowledge of storage in Queensland and New South Wales, Guardian Self Storage can help you work out what you can bring with you to our facilities, and what might be better left behind. The team at your friendly local Guardian Self Storage facility would be more than happy to help answer any other questions about storage you might have.
When it comes to working out what you shouldn't leave in a storage facility, it's usually best to either employ some common sense or discuss it with the staff. Take petrol and oil as examples: both of these materials are highly flammable and cannot be stored in a storage facility, because while storing something that is only slightly flammable, such as a couch, is fine, storing highly flammable materials is a liability. There are a wide range of chemicals that can be just as dangerous, such as paint thinner, chlorine bleach, and kerosene, so you should speak to the storage staff first before leaving these materials in storage, as they may emit fumes that could react together while in storage. No storage facility will allow you to store stolen goods, if not for moral reasons, then if just to avoid the legal complications that will arise as a consequence, and the same can be said for weapons, ammunition, and explosive devices, all of which Any live plants you leave in your unit will quickly attract large groups of pests and bugs which will present an issue not just to your belongings, but to those of your neighbouring tenants, so your storage unit is best left devoid of any live plant life. Live plants are an easy way to attract large quantities of pests and bugs, which can quickly become a problem for fellow tenants, so you're not able to leave any flora in your storage unit. You'll need to ensure that anything that would be chronically wet when in use, such as a surfboard, a raft, or a canoe has been entirely dried before you place it into storage, as the moisture will attract mold and mildew. The friendly staff of your local storage facility would be more than happy to help you work out what you can and cannot store.

Do Storage Units Provide A Place To Sleep?

It's very likely that you've thought, at least once, about alternative housing solutions if you've so much as glanced at the current housing market. Considering how much cheaper renting self-storage units can be than a house, you might be considering staying at a self-storage facility, but that isn't a good idea. Guardian Self Storage, the local experts on storage in Queensland and New South Wales, can help you understand exactly what stops sleeping in a storage unit from being a good idea. To answer any question you have about storage, you should contact your friendly, local Guardian Self Storage team.

Anyone who chooses to stay at a self-storage facility would soon discover that while a storage unit can seem comfortable while you're quickly visting to deposit or withdraw your belongings, they are not designed to provide a high quality of life to permenant residents. Before one can begin to consider whether or not a storage unit would be comfortable, you must remember that sleeping in a storage unit is illegal more often than not, which means you could find yourself facing substantial legal trouble, as could the storage facility itself. You'll be forced to content with stale air due to the relative lack of airflow inside of a storage unit, which relies on heavy insulation to help keep your belongings safe by regulating the temperature regardless of whether it is hot or cold outside. There's no way to reliably access running water or electricity, so you'll be spending quite a bit of money on fast food every day and will need to source regular access to a toilet and shower elsewhere. Properties built for long-term occupation must meet a stringent set of standards, none of which a storage-unit is able to account for, so it should also be noted that sleeping in a storage unit is likely to present you with a substantial fire hazard. Nobody should sleep in a storage unit under any circumstances, because it is not only illegal, but also substantially uncomfortable.

Can A Storage Unit Get Really Hot?

If the storage unit is a driveway unit, you may find from time to time that there is some heat against the door, however the temperature inside will actually be at a reasonable level. There are built-in airflow openings between the wall and roof to help regulate the temperature.
The crucial difference in terms of storage using a 'container storage' is that they are sealed and can attract condensation.
It is important to leave hazardous materials like petrol, gas bottles and containers holding poisonous gasses out of the storage units, as the varying temperature can escalate their danger.
