Self Storage in Melbourne
Looking for self storage services in Melbourne? Citilinked Self Storage provides secure residential and commercial self storage for customers in the metropolitan area, with convenient storage facilities situated in Flemington and Richmond.
Organising your Secure Storage Unit
At the beginning of the self storage process, it is beneficial to first consider how to correctly pack your items into the unit.
There are four key things to remember when organising a secure storage unit at our Richmond or Flemington facilities:
- Exercise care when storing – these are your personal belongings and there are measures you can take that will help protect them during their time at our facility.
- Make sure that you can easily access all items that you have stored in the commercial self storage facility when you need them.
- Label your boxes well for ease of storage and accessing items at a later date.
- Self storage space unit sizes are determined by price, so you can save money by assessing what you have to store and planning to pack it efficiently – a smaller and well-packed unit will be a smaller cost than a larger one that is poorly organised.
Commercial Self Storage
- Work out what you will need to access frequently and keep it at the front of your Flemington or Richmond self storage unit.
- In your space, fill anything that is hollow such as wardrobes, drawers, washing machines and fridges with small boxes and other items to maximise all available space.
- Stack boxes and containers so that you can see the labels you stuck on them. Wedge the doors of all kitchen appliances open whilst in the storage space in our Melbourne facility to avoid bad odours and mildew building up.
- Don’t store anything in the storage space facility that you’re not sure is vertically sturdy – if it is unstable, store it horizontally.
- If you are concerned about the commercial self storage environment in the unit, put down moisture absorbers, deodorisers and vermin bait.

- Store your largest items first, and if you’re stacking your unit high with boxes, always make sure to put the heaviest boxes at the bottom to avoid damage.
