Frequently Asked Questions
How Much Stuff Can A 3m x 6m Storage Unit Hold?

It's not unusual to want to find a storage solution for your belongings if you're going to be leaving home for quite some time. You might be selling your house or allowing your lease to end, you might not want the items to be damaged or stolen, or you might be offering the home to friends or family in your absence. Whatever the reason, if you've got a big home to store, you might want to consider storing it in a 3m x 6m storage unit. Thankfully, our team can help you work out exactly what storage unit is best for your needs, no matter how much space you might require. Don't hesitate to contact your friendly local Guardian Self Storage facility with every question about storage units in Rockhampton that you may have.
There's quite a bit of space in a 3m x 6m unit, as they are roughly the size of a single garage. All of the belongings and furnishings of a home with 4 bedrooms will easily fit into one of these units, and there's a very good chance you'd even have some space to spare. If you're concerned about what the weather will do to a boat, a car, or even a caravan that's on the smaller side, you might instead choose to leave them in one of these units, undercover and away from the elements. Should you need to space for both vehicles and beloings, you may be able to fit a small car and the furniture of a small apartment into one unit, or the belongings of a 3-bedroom home and a few motorcycles. Considering the broad size of a 3m x 6m storage unit, it's easy to see why you can store so much inside of them.

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

There's no end to the logistical difficulties to trying to fit everything you own into a storage unit without adequate prior notice. Those difficulties only increase if you don't know what size you need your storage unit to be prior to moving in. Thankfully, if you've been considering a 2m x 3m unit, the resident experts on all things self storage in Rockhampton, Guardian Self Storage, can help you work out exactly what will fit inside of that space. To find an answer to any questions about storage that you might have, you can get in touch with our friendly team.

The contents of a small unit or apartment will fit wondoursly into a 2m x 3m storage unit. Even a space as cosy as these units can fit everything you need so long as you box all of your items properly and store your furniture as efficiently as possible. You may choose to instead use this unit to store the contents of a bedroom, at which point you'd find you can comfortably fit a king-size bed, your entire wardrobe, and everything else you'd care to pack from your bedroom. Any business owners may instead like to note that a 2m x 3m unit has capacity for about 200 archival boxes, which can be a great start for the record storage for your business. A 2m x 3m storage unit is a great choice for anyone that has a small apartment's worth of items to be stored.

How Do You Stop Clothes From Being Ruined In Storage?

You expect that any item you place into storage will remain in the same condition until you're ready to retrieve them again. 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. Fortunately, the resident experts in storage in Rockhampton, Guardian Self Storage, can help you work out exactly how to store your clothes best to prevent disaster. 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.

All you need to do to protect the items you leave in storage, including your clothes, is make sure you take the appropriate precautions. First, before you get to the storage unit, make sure all of the clothes you'd like to store have been thoroughly cleaned. Cleaning your clothes now is the only way to remove sticky substances such as food, dirt, or smoke, which, if left to seep into your clothes for six months in storage, might not ever come out again. Making sure the clothes are dry is also critical, though, as any damp clothes will be targeted by mold and mildew, which will likely destroy the clothes entirely. Plastic bins offer greater protection for your clothes than cardboard boxes, making them the superior clothes-storage devices, even if they are somewhat more expensive. Provided you take the right precautions, your clothes will be perfectly safe in long-term storage.

Can You Operate Your Business Exclusively From A Storage Unit?

When you can't afford to maintain a commercial space for your business - whether that be a workshop, storefront, or office - because of the rent costs, the low cost of renting out a storage unit quickly becomes an attractive alternative. 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. Thankfully, Guardian Self Storage would be more than happy to answer any questions you might have about operating your business from a storage unit in Rockhampton. If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to our friendly team, who would be more than happy to help.

You will still need an office or storefront to operate your business from, even if it is legal to utiilise a storage unit as part of those operations. The government has set forward minimum requirements for occupancy that storage units aren't able to meet due to their purpose-orientated design, which means they legally can't be used as either a storefront or office space. Any staff that do work in these spaces, should it become legal to do so, will be extremely uncomfortable and have their effectiveness hampered, as storage units typically don't feature much natural light, and nor do they provide electricity or running water. If you're just looking to upscale your physical inventory without needing to pay the higher fees of a bigger office or storefront, though, then self-storage is an excellent choice for you. Industries such as retail, publishing, or the arts all benefit severely from the cheap rent of a storage unit. If you're looking to save some money on your business by moving into a self-storage unit, you might want to consider the legal implications.

What Items Should Not Be Put Into A Storage Unit?

Finding space for everything you own in your home can be quite difficult, but that doesn't mean all of your possessions will belong in a storage unit, either. Fortunately, with our expert knowledge of storage in Rockhampton, Guardian Self Storage can help you work out what you can bring with you to our facilities, and what might be better left behind. To answer any question you might have regarding storage, you can reach out to your friendly, local Guardian Self Storage facility.
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. As an example, you cannot store anything extremely combustible, such as petrol or oil, as while a couch might be slightly flammable, the highly flammable and combustible nature of these substances makes them a liability. Storing chemicals such as chlorine bleach, paint thinner, and kerosene can be similarly dangerous, since these chemicals can passively give off fumes that will react with each other, and so you should speak with the staff at your storage facility before you make any decisions about storing them. There are a variety of legal and moral issues with storing anything that has been stolen, as there are for the storage of weapons, ammunition, and explosive devices, so if you've stolen it or could potentially use to it to steal something else, it might be best left at home. Pests and bugs alike will be attracted to any live plants you leave in your unit, so you're not able to leave any flora in your storage unit lest it becomes a problem for any neighbouring tenants. Mold and mildew will be similarly drawn to anything that is wet, so storing chronically wet items such as rafts, surfboards, and canoes demands that you make sure they're entirely dry before you leave them in your unit. Determining whether or not something belongs in a storage facility is as simple as employing common sense or having a short conversation with the staff.

Are You Able To Sleep In A Storage Unit?

If you've seen the housing market as it currently sits, it's highly likely that your mind has wandered into thinking about alternative housing solutions that don't involve paying such high prices. 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. Fortunately, Guardian Self Storage, the resident experts in all matters related to storage in Rockhampton, can explain all the reasons you'd want to avoid staying in such a unit. To answer any question you have about storage, you should contact your friendly, local Guardian Self Storage team.

While self-storage units are more than adequate for the storage of belongings and aren't uncomfortable during your brief visits, they cannot provide a high quality of life to anyone who chooses to stay there permanently. First and foremost, staying in a storage unit is most commonly illegal in most cases, and so before you begin to even consider whether or not sleeping in one would be comfortable, you should remember that doing so is likely to bring legal trouble for both you and the storage facility you've chosen to stay with. The heavy insulation in a storage unit helps protect it from both heat and cold outside, but because that demands the unit to be relatively-effectively sealed, it won't be long before the air inside becomes quite stale. Because running water and electricity can present a hazard while not being monitored, you normally won't be able to reliably access these utilities in a storage unit, so you'll need to think about where you will source food, showers, and access to a toilet. As a final deterrent, self-storage units are not designed to meet or built to the standards demanded for long-term occupation, and as such, present a massive fire hazard to any occupant. Sleeping in a storage unit is not only illegal, it is neither safe nor comfortable and should not be attempted by anyone for any reason.

Are Storage Units Hot?

In the heat of the day you might find that your storage unit door can get hot especially if it is a driveway unit, however the temperature inside will be OK. There are built-in airflow openings between the wall and roof to help regulate the temperature.
This is not the case for 'container storage' as they are sealed and 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.
Be sure to visit the Guardian Self Storage website to view the 'Packing Tips' page for more information on how best to pack certain items.

Do Storage Units Get Robbed?

There are rarely any robberies at the Guardian Self Storage units. This is due to the maintained state-of-the-art security systems that we have in place. So, you can be rest assured that your belongings are safe and secure. Each customer has their own unique PIN code to access their storage unit, plus security and camera systems are always closely monitored.
