Got the travel bug?

When it hits, you can’t get it out of your mind. The urge to travel, explore, open up your mind to new experiences, and get away from the little problems of day to day living. So what can you do if you want to get out in this big old world, but at the same time you don’t want to be paying rent for an empty home?

Short Trips

If you are only going to be away for a few weeks, you could always consider an Air BNB setup, if this is something that you feel comfortable with. We can help you by offering up an affordable self-storage space for you to pack away your valuables, personal items, or things you would rather your guests didn’t have access to.

You can give your guests a lovely home to enjoy while they explore your hometown, and you can explore your travel destination knowing that your home is generating an income for you while you are away.

Longer Trips

If you plan to be away for months at a time, you could always consider moving all of your belongings into a self-storage space until you return. This is generally far more affordable than keeping your rental house held vacant while you are away.

You won’t need to worry about things like home or yard maintenance, security issues, or having friends or family regularly dropping by just to check up on the place. With our range of on-site equipment to help you pack and unpack your storage space, it will be simple to move your personal items into a new place once you’ve returned.

Freedom to choose

Perhaps you don’t want the restriction of an end date for your travels, and want to have the freedom to come and go as you choose- perhaps work overseas, try living in another country for a year or two, or just enjoy being a bit of a nomad moving from place to place.

Our self-storage units come at a discounted rate for long-term arrangements, so chat to us for a quote and help to select the right sized storage space that will suit your needs. If you like, you can try out our online storage space estimator that allows you to input common household items for an estimate of storage space required.

You can also take a virtual tour of our facility if you want to get a feel for how easy it is to move your belongings in and out. Call us on (07) 5549 3299 for a quote today.


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.
