Storage Tips


Lounges and mattresses are best placed in a Mattress Bag or Lounge Bag to reduce marks and dust. Woombye Self Storage has a range of sizes in Extra Heavy Duty plastic covers.


Many stored items can be made smaller. Often you can reduce the size of bed frames to help everything fit more comfortably in your storage space. Wrap frames together with tape (use the non-sticky side for no tape residue) then place any screws in plastic bags and tape them to the frame..


Electrical equipment should be handled with care. The original boxes are best. A moving blanket wrapped around your television will also keep it safe and secure. The removal of all batteries from remotes is a must.

Washing Machines

Washing machines should be drained of all water and dried of all moisture to avoid mould and when in storage the door should be left slightly open.



Fridges and Freezers need to be emptied of any food. No food is allowed to be stored. The fridge/freezer once emptied should be dried of all moisture and when in storage the door should be left slightly open.


What if I have a household contents policy or other Insurance cover? - Don't assume ANY EXISTING policy will automatically cover your goods inself storage, ask the insurance company and find out whether your existing policy is suitable for covering your goods in self storage.

What not to store - any goods that are illegal, stolen, inflammable, explosive, environmentally harmful, hazardous perishable or that are a risk to the property of person. eg. Chlorine, acid, paints, petrol, gas etc. must not be stored.
