Should pack my own On demand Storage?

Last Updated on June 1, 2023 by Vlad Stoikovich

With so many great options out there for on demand storage it’s harder than ever to discern which option is best for you. The costliest part of on demand storage is moving your goods in and out of the crate. The cost isn’t just monetary, if you do it yourself it’s at least a day of heavy lifting and playing Tetris in small spaces. The obvious solution is getting HomeMove to pack for you! This article will dive into just a few of the advantages and savings you get when you let HomeMove pack your on demand storage.

On demand storage saves customers money because it can be loaded on site. There’s no travel time to and from storage facilities or dealing with the fickle Melbourne traffic. Loading the crates on site cuts down on travel time and it also allows you to watch the crate being packed. You can have piece of mind knowing that your goods are being stored safely, and when the crate comes back, all of your items will be in the same condition. It’s just as easy when you would like the items you’re storing returned, they come right back your door! This is one of the big advantages that we have over traditional storage centres and other on demand storage. Rather than just a place to store some extra bits and pieces, HomeMove are a concierge for your stuff!

What makes our system a little different is that we don’t just drop the crate at your door, we pack the crate for you. This saves you time, money and strain on your back! Not only that but by using our professional packers we’ll be able to maximise the space available, which again, saves you money on unused storage space. We developed our on demand storage system alongside our removalists, this gives us a huge efficiency advantage over other on demand storage companies. Our HomeMove heros will be able to load and pack your on demand storage faster and tighter than anybody else.

The second major difference between our on demand storage and other companies is that we don’t leave your on demand storage in the street. We take the crate back to our secure warehouse. The warehouse has 24/7 back to base security monitoring. Your crate will be individually locked within the larger warehouse making this solution far more secure than a box sitting in the street. Having the piece of mind knowing that what you are storing is safe, is paramount to any customer, which is why having a secure, monitored, and alarmed storage centre is a huge advantage. Our warehouse is only accessed by HomeMove employees rather than a public storage warehouse, making it even more secure than Public self storage. By combining the flexibility of on demand storage, with the security of a storage warehouse we have created a unique on demand storage system.

On demand storage has a lot of really great options to choose from but there are a few ways that you can tell them apart from HomeMoves On demand storage system. Our storage crates come to your door and are loaded onsite without the hassle of driving to and from a storage warehouse. Once we arrive with the crate we will take care of all the heavy lifting and pack the crate for you. That packed crate will be stored in a secure warehouse just waiting for you to ask for it to be redelivered. We truly have the easiest on demand storage system which only has you lifting a finger to dial the phone. If you would like an idea of how our storage works, read on,
