Creating space for what matters
For us, creating space isn’t just about clearing clutter from your home, office or commercial premises, it’s also about giving you freedom to focus on what matters most.
We know that each customer has their own reasons for seeking out a storage solution; it might be a major life change, relocation or travel, a new business, a growing family – or a down-sizing one. So, whether it’s short or long-term, we keep things flexible. You can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your precious possessions are safe, while making the most of the extra space for as long as you need.
Setting the standard in self-storage
We’re a 100% Kiwi owned and operated organisation. In 1991 we opened the gates on our first branch in Penrose, becoming one of the earliest self-storage companies in New Zealand. Since then, we’ve continued to grow and innovate, expanding to 11 locations throughout Auckland. We continue to lead the industry, setting the standard when it comes to security and service, and creating smart sites through the use of market-leading technology.
Our aim is simplicity: ensuring that everything we do makes it easier for our customers, our suppliers and our staff. This ethos drives our process reviews, our business direction and the experience we offer our customers. You’ll notice that all our Auckland branches are located close to motorways or main roads, making them convenient to the communities in which they are built. This is just one of the ways that we aim to keep things as simple as possible for you!
