When the children come back

When the children come back

Picture this. Your home is just the way you want it. Your children are grown and you not only have a hobby room but a movie room too. No toys cluttering up the living room. No boxes full of trophies, or old sporting equipment. Life is peaceful. But then you hear a knock on the door. You open it to find your first born standing on the doorstep with a suitcase… and an overflowing car. "It's only for a little while."

Making space

We all go through hiccups, and if one of your kids has returned to the nest, even though it means packing things away to make space it also means that you get to spend time with them. You're not worried about how long they stay because you’re secretly happy they are home. Yes they can have their old room, and no, it's not a problem- but you both know you need more space for your things.

Moving in

The next consideration is their stuff. They have been out in the big wide world for years now. They have made memories and spent their hard-earned dollars furnishing where they were. You both know your garage can't hold everything and some heirloom items need to be handled with care.  

Taking the guesswork out

The first step is taking inventory of what needs to be stored.  How much space do you need? Yatala Self Storage offers spaces ranging from 2 square meters to 24 square meters?

Do you need bubble wrap? Boxes? A trolley to move your belongings with? Yatala Self Storage has it all. We also have cold drinks on site so you can relax and catch your breath once you are done.

We even have a buyback service for boxes once your little darling flies the coup again. Need some help planning out how much space you need? Check out our handy storage estimator so you can get an idea of what size storage you need.
