Need secure building site storage?

At mobistorage we have a range of mobile self-storage units that are perfect for building site storage. We can deliver anywhere across the Perth metro area and as far north as Jurien Bay or south to Margaret River.

Our mobistorage units are built with heavy-duty steel roofs, doors, base, and frame with light steel wall panels so they’re safe, secure and lightweight. They’re 100% waterproof, fire and rust resistant and pest proof.

Building site storage protects tools and materials from theft, vandalism and weather. Keeping construction sites clear of excess tools and materials, by keeping them out of the way during the day, is necessary for preventing workplace injury.  We’ve put together this short list of the ways you can use building site storage.

1. reduce building site theft

 

Theft of tools from vans and construction sites in Western Australia costs approximately $50million a year. Using secure building site storage for items that can’t be locked in vans keeps them safe during the day.

 

Larger pieces of equipment or materials that are difficult to transport, like paint or timber, can be locked away in a mobile self-storage unit during the day or overnight.

 

For more ideas the WA Police have produced a great tip sheet on preventing building site theft.

2. Keep deliveries to construction sites secure

The WA Police consider things like spas and hot water systems to be high risk items when it comes to construction site theft. If items arrive before they can be installed, keep them safely locked away and out of sight until it’s installation time.

3. remove or Hide appliance packaging

 

Packaging from expensive items like whitegoods can tell a thief if it’s worth breaking into a house or building. Using a skip bin is okay but packaging is still visible. Use your mobile self-storage unit to store boxes until they can be removed altogether.

4. prevent workplace injuries

 

Tools, materials or other items left out can be a serious hazard for workers and public, and expensive legal action can result from injury caused on or around worksites. Use building site storage to keep potentially hazardous items, including paint and chemicals, out of the way to prevent incidents.

Mobistorage offers a range of container sizes

We have three different sized containers: small, medium or large. As a rough guide, a small container can fit the contents of a 1-2 bedroom house so it’s perfect if you want to only store items like smaller tools or tins of paint. A medium sized container is suitable for larger items, deliveries as well as tools and equipment. A large container is your best option if you want the flexibility to store large items like doors or window frames as well as your tools and equipment.

Storage at our secure Welshpool yard is a good option for seasonal events such as festivals. Use the container onsite during the event and at the end of the season, pack everything away and we’ll pick it up and store it securely for next year.

7 things you need to ask about self storage units

Self storage units are a great option to store your belongings. You could need extra storage for any number of reasons from domestic or home use to commercial, building site or even event storage.

If you’ve decided that a self storage unit is the way to go then it’s worth taking a little bit of time to ask yourself and your storage company a few important questions. To make things even easier, we’ve put together this list of things to ask before committing to self storage units as a short or long term solution.

1. What are you going to store?

Make an inventory or list of all the items you’ll need to put into the self storage unit. This will help you decide what size unit you’ll need and whether you’ll need access to your belongings while they’re in storage.
It’s important to remember that you’ll need some room to move in the storage unit so that you can pack things up safely and access them later if you need to.

For example – we’ve had customers use mobistorage for home renovations and often they might need access to some items during the renovation but just don’t need them every day. Mobistorage offers a great solution in these cases. Our self storage units are mobile so we can bring it to you and you can pack it up and store it at your home, property or site, allowing very easy access to your items whenever you need them.

2. What size self storage unit do you need?

When it comes to self storage units, size does matter. But the size you need really depends on how much you want to store. If you’ve completed a list of items and you think you might need to access some while they’re in storage, then we recommend ordering a size that will give you easy access and room to move inside the unit. Nobody wants to have to unpack and repack everything when you need something out of the self storage unit.

At mobistorage we have three different sized self storage units:

  • Small (17m³) – 2.4m(W) x 3.0m(L) x 2.3m(H) – (Approximately fits content of a 1 bedroom house)
  • Medium (27.2m³) – 2.4m(W) x 4.9m(L) x 2.3m(H) – (Approximately fits contents of a 2 bedroom house)
  • Large (32.7m³) – 2.4m(W) x 5.9m(L) x 2.3m(H) – (Approximately fits contents of a 3 bedroom house)

3. How secure are your self storage units?

Keeping your stuff safe is essential. You really want to be able to put it away and not worry about it, so it’s important to look at how secure the self storage unit itself is and the location it’s stored in. If you choose to use a self storage solution like mobistorage you can keep the unit at your premises or in our secure yard.

You should also think about the safety of the self storage unit itself. All mobistorage units are made of heavy duty steel and they’re 100% fire resistant, weather and pest-proof. It’s important to find out who has access to your unit. With mobistorage you’re the only one with a key so you can rest assured that your equipment and belongings are safe. Mobistorage units all come with a disc lock made from heavy duty stainless steel. If you choose to use a self storage facility or store your mobistorage unit at our secure yard, it’s a good idea to check on these things:

  • Are the grounds patrolled, and if they are, how often?
  • Are there smoke alarms in each building?
  • Is there security lighting around the facility?
  • What insurance options are there?

For more information about our security measures give us a call on 1300 914 706, we’re happy to help.

4. Can I access my belongings?

You know how it goes – you put something away and the next day you need it. To decide on the best option for your self storage needs, it’s important to consider whether you’ll need to access items and how frequently. We recommend finding out how easy access is to arrange and how much it will cost.

Start by asking the following questions:

  • Am I able to access my storage unit at your facility?
  • If so, when and how?
  • Will it cost money each time I access my unit?
  • If not, how much notice needs to be given for access?

5. Can you help with moving and packing?

Packing and moving can be such a stressful experience. Luckily, there are some self storage companies in Perth that offer removal and packing services.
Mobistorage is a unique and convenient self storage solution. We deliver self storage units direct to our customers to be packed up completely on their own schedule. There’s no rush to get things packed away in a unit before closing time and no need to arrange special transport like trucks or trailers.
Once you’ve finished packing, we can collect it and store it for you at our secure storage facility. Or, you can keep it onsite so that you can access it whenever you need, which is a great option if you are renovating or need building site storage. We can also take it to another location for you which is perfect if you are moving to a new property or premises, or you need event storage and want your equipment taken to your next location. Mobistorage sells or hires packing supplies and we can arrange a quality packing service for you.

6. Where is the storage yard located?

Ideally, self storage units are located near you to minimise the hassle of transporting your belongings to and from the yard. But have you thought about a mobile self storage solution? It’s got to be the most convenient self storage solution in Perth. At mobistorage, that’s exactly what we offer. Our self storage units are delivered to your address (and we go anywhere in the Perth metropolitan area). Once you’ve packed the self storage unit, we collect it and bring it to our secure yard.

Our mobistorage yard is located in Welshpool and has easy access to Perth’s main highways – Canning, Leach and Great Eastern. It’s also close to the Perth Airports and major industrial areas like Kewdale.

7. What can’t I store in self storage units?

There are certain guidelines on what items you can and can’t store in a storage unit. These help you decide what to store and also ensures the safety of your property, your self storage unit and the location it is stored in.
Here are some examples of items that you should not store:

  • Fireworks / explosives
  • Paint thinners and flammable substances
  • Wet/Damp items to avoid mould
  • Fertiliser
  • Jerry Cans
  • Aerosol cans
  • Toxic chemicals of any sort

7 Ways Your Business can Benefit from Business Self Storage

Many people are aware of the benefits of self storage for temporary personal use. You might be be moving house, maybe moving overseas, or even going through home renovations – in these cases, many of us know that self storage is a great way to store your belongings for a period of time to make life easier.

But did you consider that your business can also benefit from self storage?

Having a clutter-free work environment is beneficial for many reasons and for all different types of businesses. A clutter-free, well-organised workplace can impress clients, reduce stress for your team and increase productivity for your entire staff.

There are a number of specific ways that business self storage can benefit your business:

1. Manage stock and reduce inventory overflow

Most businesses have specific high and low periods where you need to manage supply and demand with fluctuations in the amount of stock that you have available.

Rather than going through inventory headaches, using business self storage, allows you to store excess (but required) stock either on or offsite so that you keep your workspace clutter free and efficient.

By using a business self storage unit, you can securely store your stock in an easily accessible location. That way, you can manage any sudden demands for items and reduce waiting times for your customers.

2. Storing Seasonal Decorations

Seasonal decorations and promotional items used for small amounts of time during the year often take up plenty of valuable space at your place of business.

As they are used on an annual basis, you don’t want to throw them away and start again every year, so why not hire a mobistorage unit and store them while you don’t need them? Then, when it’s time to trim the tree, so to speak, you can easily access your decorations from your storage unit.

3. Archive & document storage

Have you ever noticed that the amount of paperwork that you have seems to multiply on your desk when you’re not looking? Unfortunately, it’s a fact of life that even with the age of ‘digital, email and soft copies’, we still need to have the paperwork associated with running a business.

Not only that, but we also need to store it somewhere safe, so that we can access it when we need it.

As you know, paperwork can take up a lot of space – using business self storage or office and archive storage is a great way of freeing up your office space and also keeping your necessary documents safe and conveniently located.

4. Office relocation storage

Are you planning an office move? Moving your place of business can sometimes feel like an even more arduous task than moving home due to the fact that you need to minimise the amount of downtime of your essential business services.

In addition, you also need to be able to move all of your office furniture, equipment, stock, paperwork and other essential items so that everything is easily accessible once you have arrived at the new location.

Business self storage provides you with the option of storing your non-essential items so that you can focus on the things that are most important. You can store old equipment, promotional items, unreleased stock, archives and furniture – items that you need to bring to your new location, but don’t necessarily need on day one at the new office.

With a business self storage unit, these items are stored securely and housed in a convenient location so that they are easily accessible when you need them.

5. Mobile business equipment storage

These days there are a lot of mobile business owners who, very cleverly, bring their services to their customers. This saves on the cost of a business location and provides an element of ease to their customers, but it also eliminates the necessary place to store all of their business paraphernalia. And in a lot of cases, the business items end up being stored at home.

Whether it be documentation, filing systems, excess stock, machinery or promotional items, a business self storage unit will save the mobile business owner from having to take up valuable storage space in their home.

6. Trade business storage

Almost everyone has a tradie in their life. You know the type, they seem to be have exactly the right tool at exactly the right time to fix those things that the everyday person just has no idea about. But where do they store those tools?

A lot of tradespeople have a shed but sheds (like our home lots) are getting smaller these days and the amount of equipment, tools and stock that tradespeople need, is not. This is where a business self storage unit comes in.

We understand that access is key for tradespeople – you need to be able to get to what you need quickly and easily. A self storage unit can be delivered to your location of choice and stored onsite, or housed in one of our convenient and easily accessible locations. This way your trade equipment is ready and waiting when you need it.

7. Home office storage

Working from home is a definite perk of today’s working environment. It allows us to spend more time with our families and a flexibility that ensures that even while we’re getting work done, we’re also taking care of what is most important.

Usually, the only downside to working from home is lack of storage. No-one wants to take up valuable personal space in your home with office and work supplies. Business self storage allows you to store the non-essential work stuff to free up space in your home, but also be conveniently accessible so you can get to it when you need.
