    Default Cost of storage

    We are moving and we need to put our stuff into storage for about a month.
    It will be a house full.
    Any ideas on the cost of this? What's cheap?

    It depends on How much room you need and where you need it.

    EG one place in western Sydney cost me $180/pm for 3mx3mx3m unit however same company 5 suburbs toward Sydney was $280p/m for the same size.

    Also a 3mx3mx3m is enough for a 3 bedroom house I think we only got ours done though having Tetris champs for Removalists.

    If you have a friend with enough room on their property - buy a shipping container and use that to store it on your friends property. (This has a higher upfront cost, but you can resell the shipping container once you are done.)

    How much is shipping containers? Or can you hire them?
    I'm in Brisbane and found a couple of storage places that charge $300+ for a size to fit 5 bedroom home.

    Looking on ebay, they typically seem to go for $2k-$4k. But if you buy one and use it for a short time, then I would expect you would be able to sell for a similar price and recoup that money.

    I remember seeing someone advertising hire of a container for something like $2.50 a week, but cannot remember what part of Australia they were in. This was the only company I had seen, so one instance is hardly a reasonable sample size to determine if that is a normal price.

    There is also a company called PODS (Personal On Demand Storage) that offers containers and other storage solutions for hire, but when I looked into their rates a couple of years ago, I thought they were quite high.
