Storage for busy people
MetroMovers Real Storage Solutions
Most storage companies won’t lift, load or transport your storage for you. So when you rent a storage unit from most standard storage companies, you do all the heavy lifting, transport, loading and unloading yourself. That’s a lot of extra time, effort and work for what’s supposed to be a simple storage ‘solution.’
MetroMovers has real storage solutions for real people who have busy lives, don’t own a truck and are not trained to do a whole lot of heavy lifting. We come to your address, we load your belongings into our specialist moving truck, transport and we unload it safely into your storage container at one of our own secure storage facilities.
MetroMovers storage solutions make storage easy, more efficient and you don’t have to coordinate for your belongings to be passed around between multiple moving and storage companies.
It’s your all-in-one, end-to-end moving and storage solution!

Storage solutions are for delays, travel or declutter
Why Do I Need Storage?
Some people need a storage solution for when they go travelling.
Others just to keep their belongings and furniture stored in a clean place while they are renovating.
Others still may need long term storage to downsize or declutter.
But one of the most common reasons people need short term storage is when their move-in date has been delayed, but their vacate deadline has not. Unfortunately, not every new home or office is magically available on the same day as you leave your old one!
For whatever reason you need short or long term storage, call MetroMovers for a custom quote.
What to look for in a good storage facility?
Not everyone is an expert in storage services, but we are. That’s why we thought it might be helpful if we give you a few pointers of what to look for (and ask about) in any storage company you are checking out:
- Do they have 24/7 security?
- Are they accredited members of the Self Storage Association of Australia?
- Do they have their own insurance?
- Are your belongings stored inside in a secure, modern facility where they won’t get wet, mouldy or damaged by bad weather?
- Is the storage facility regularly cleaned, maintained and is there adequate pest control?
- Are there any items you are not legally allowed to store in the facility?
