What is My Storage?

My Storage is a new generation of a full managed service storage company designed from the ground up to take the pain out of using a traditional self-storage unit. Our customers do not have to travel to and fro storage facilities but instead operate their storage needs all on their Phone, iPad and Desktop. We hope to be the simplest “self-storage” company in Perth (and many other cities to come).

How does the Process work from start to finish?
  1. Schedule a delivery and a pick up for the boxes to come to your place on your phone or desktop
  2. Once the schedule request is received by phone or online we will have a Koala Box team member will arrive at your home or Office and drop off durable, commercial grade plastic moving boxes provided FREE of charge to help begin packing
  3. On the day of your pick up, which can be the same day we drop off your boxes (our driver can wait up to 20 minutes) will take an inventory of your items and secure your belongings.
  4. We’ll take your boxes back to our secure storage facility and “upload” your inventory to our website and your email address.
  5. Whenever you want something back, you can log into your online account and see what you’ve stored check your boxes and arrange a scheduled return for the boxes that you want.
How is my stuff inventoried?

When your boxes are being picked up, our drivers will take a high-quality picture at eagle eye view of each box. We also have a number on each box, where you can write a description on the paper provided on that to help relate to each box what the inside contents is. The pictures and label descriptions are then uploaded to your account where you’ll have an online, the end look is a visual catalog of everything you’re storing with us.

When you want something back, login to your account, view your boxes and select exactly what you want returned to you.

Do you do larger items as well?

We do take larger items such as suitcases, tv units, microwaves, bikes, sofas, beds, etc.

For Bikes we store our customers bicycles on racks, separate from other storage. This makes your bicycle easier to retrieve and reduces the risk of it getting bumped, buried, or damaged by other storage.

Do you need anything from me when you drop the boxes off?

We usually have all the details that we need via online orders but if it was a phone call order we may require further information once we are at the drop off point for clarity of information and transfer of payments.

How do I pay for the storage?

The cubic volume is 0.09m3 per box.

The measurements are 69cm long x 43cm wide x 32cm high.

The litre measurements is 73 litres.

The best way to describe the size is to take a standard cardboard box that is assembles and push it to its side and imagine you could open it to the side, that’s a general and practical visual view of what size it is.

Can I use my own cardboard boxes or storage boxes?

Sure!

People love the convenience of having our green boxes delivered directly to their doorstep (instead of having to find, assemble, and tape boxes), but we understand that sometimes people want to keep some items boxed.
