furniture storage - container storage

Furniture storage for short or long term

ARE YOU IN NEED OF SHORT OR LONG-TERM FURNITURE STORAGE IN BRISBANE?

There are many reasons for needing short or long-term storage and this can be costly! Brisbane Removalists have a cost-effective solution for your interim storage that avoids double-handling and simplifies the entire process.

Our 20-foot storage containers are suitable to house a standard 3-bedroom home overnight, for a week, month or longer. Our storage facility in Archerfield is fully insured and flood risk-free. Insurance is included in our weekly fee, making container moves very flexible and a cheaper option than traditional storage facilities.

RENOVATING IN BRISBANE AND NEED SHORT TERM STORAGE?

Short term furniture storage

Are you renovating, needing your floors repolished, new flooring or carpet laid? Brisbane Removalists can help with the short-term storage needed. We arrive at your house with a container, load your furniture directly, and store it for the time needed. We simply bring the container back for a quick unload when your floors/renovations are done.

No need to ring around third-party storage facilities to get the best deal and waste even more time. You have probably already spent enough time looking for a reliable removalist company! We can be your one-stop shop and have this done in half the time it takes when using a traditional facility.

WHY IS CONTAINER STORAGE COST EFFECTIVE?

Often cheaper and time efficient

Container uplift and storage are cheaper than traditional storage because there is no double handling for one. We uplift directly into the container and store it ready for delivery when needed by our experienced movers. This is a simple, efficient and time-saving option.

With traditional storage facilities, we have to uplift your items into a truck and then unload them into the storage facility. We must then return to the facility to uplift and unload a second time on delivery.  This not only costs more because of the double handling but also because you will have to pay insurance on top.

Sometimes there are even extra fees added such as fumigation.  Some facilities have limited flexibility with minimum storage restrictions. This may mean you have to pay for a month when you only need a week.

WHY CHOOSE CONTAINER STORAGE OVER TRADITIONAL STORAGE?

Container storage is perfect for the following situations.

Double-settlement overlaps

Is double settlement too risky and stressful? Container moves allow you to uplift the day before settlement without the stress of having to be out on time. They also give you time to clean without any pressure and to check you have not forgotten anything.

We can then deliver your goods in the container already packed the day before, without the double handling. You do not have the stress of meeting two deadlines on one day, or worry if the settlement falls through or is delayed and the “then what?” scenario. 

Settlement can sometimes be delayed.  This means you are on the clock with a truck full of goods, nowhere to go with the boys twiddling their thumbs. Securing early entry through your lawyer is a way around this and can take the stress off the table.

On the rare occasion, settlement does not happen at all. If this is the case, you will need a Plan B. It is, however, difficult to secure last minute storage.

Many take the risk without overnight storage, and it works fine most of the time. Container moves do allow for breathing space when moving and reduce the stress of an already stressful day.

If you have more than a 3-bedroom house to move, then 2 containers are necessary. It may then be preferable to upload directly into our largest truck (65m3).  You could pay for it to be stored overnight and off the road until settlement the next day. Talking to us, allows us to provide you with the most cost-effective and stress-free move.

SOLD YOUR HOME, BUT HAVE NOWHERE TO GO?

Container storage can be the answer

Selling your home is already an ordeal, but finding your new dream home simultaneously is a nightmare. Uplifting directly into storage containers, can take that time pressure off you and allow you to find the right property in peace.

Imagine this. Our experienced movers load the container directly with your possessions and take it to our storage facility in Archerfield.  Your goods will be safely stored and fully insured.

Once you are ready, we will upload the container, and unload your goods into your true dream home. Not one bought under the duress of time constraints. This is a great way to save time and money from double handling your goods, all the while time to really find what you want.

TROUBLE FINDING AN APARTMENT?

Short term furniture storage could relieve the stress

A lot of you are struggling trying to find a suitable apartment. You may have been subject to a rent rise you can’t afford, or your landlord has decided to sell. You may be relocating to Brisbane or have a new job and need to move closer. The problem is getting an apartment with the numbers of people looking. Same stress of having to be out of one and not having found the next. Container storage can also a great alternative here.

Other reasons container storage can help

Shared accommodation and excess furniture

Shared accommodation is becoming more frequent with the current housing crisis. Sharing a home can often mean duplicated furniture and appliances that can easily be stored safely until circumstances change or you make other arrangements for them.

Short or long term holiday storage when going overseas

Going overseas for an extended period of time can often mean you need a storage solution until you come back. Knowing your possessions are safe and dry is the peace of mind we offer. Again, direct uplift and drop off without transhipping saves time and money.

Whatever your storage requirements, we are here to help find a solution for you – it’s what we do best.

Brisbane Removalists made our move so easy! Right from the booking process to the day of the uplift. We had excellent packers which really made a difference and the two removalists the day after were superheroes! Thanks for reducing much of the stress of moving. I would use this service again for sure.

Feb 2024: used these guys to move previously six years ago (review below) and they were great then, and they were great today. Quick, professional, and friendly. Made moving very easy.6 years ago: On time, very funny guys. Did tease us about out inept flat packing abilities when moving desks....which they also fixed up for us! We also got them to take the beds apart and put them together again at the new place, so easy, would recommend asking them to do that. Nothing broken etc, moved efficiently.
I’ve had Brisbane Removalists help me with moving twice now. Both times I’ve been impressed with their speed, communication and precision. Thank you for helping me move, BR! I’d definitely recommend them to anyone looking to hire movers.

Good experience, friendly removalists, not afraid of the rain, packed everything in the truck then met us at the end, and unpacked everything efficiently. Only thing was they were delayed on the earlier job in the day when the client asked for extra work to be done, so we were pushed back until the afternoon. Kept us informed when we asked so that we could schedule other things while waiting.On the whole good service.
I recently hired Tom and Josh from Brisbane Removalists and was very impressed with their service. Tom and Josh arrived promptly and conducted themselves in a professional, friendly and courteous manner, and ensured that all my belongings were safely transported to my new home. I would highly recommend using their services for all your moving needs.

We had an amazing expereince with Brisbane Removalists. It was last minute and a much bigger job that I thought and right from the first interaction, they worked hard to squeeze us in. David and Dairo were fabulous and some of our stuff was HEAVY and up stairs! I highly recommend this company to make your move a little less stressful - thanks again!

I cannot recommend this removalist company enough. From speaking with Eileen on the phone in the first instance, I knew our very complicated job was in good hands. The movers over the multiple days took such good care of the house and furniture and were very happy to help with some complex items to move offering suggestions and solutions. Thank you for your friendly, fast and reliable service.
Ontime, Efficient, Hardworking. Overall excellent removalists, Tom and Josh were helping us move yesterday from our old apartment to our new one, as soon as their truck pulled into our loading bay they were quick to set up what they needed and started moving our boxes right away. They were especially good at problem solving when it came to some of our larger furniture (especially our couch) that wouldnt fit in the lift and had to be taken down the stairs. A couch which had previously had to be craned/lifted up the side of the building into apartments we have lived in. They had a great attitude even when dealing with more difficult pieces of furniture and just kept moving. We had budgeted for a 8 hour days work but Tom and Josh were quick enough to get it done in only 6.5 hours but also careful enough that none of our property was damaged. Overall would definately recommend them to anyone else needing removalists.
