Places where you can store anything from your household contents to your business stock. Our customers require Self Storage in Brunswick East, Northcote, Bellfield and Thornbury, and they are not always aware that their image of Self Storage is nothing more than myth.

To help those unfamiliar with modern Self Storage facilities, we’ve listed five common myths about Self Storage, highlighting just how far StoreLocal and the Self Storage industry has come over the years.

Self Storage Is Only for Long-Term Storage

Many people think that when storing their property that they will be required to sign a long-term contract. At StoreLocal Northcote this isn’t the case, we have month to month contracts that only require that you give notice when you wish to end your term. This makes StoreLocal Northcote the perfect option for when you’re moving home or you are renovating.

Storage Units Are All the Same Size

Another common misconception is that all the units are the size of a garage, and that is no choice. At StoreLocal Northcote we have a variety of unit sizes that mean that you can find the perfect sized unit for your goods, after all why pay for space that you don’t need? Use our online space calculator to see how much space you need.

Storage Facilities Are Dusty and Dirty

The usual perception of a Self Storage facility is that it is a dusty dirty place that is barely maintained. StoreLocal Northcote facilities are run to the highest standards and are always in tip top shape. We do our best to make sure that our facilities are clean, dry and pest free.

Self Storage Facilities Are Inconveniently Located
