We're getting to the point now where we will really HAVE to try and sell our current house, so that means Open House time - I've been de-clutttering as much as I can for the past few months, but now I'm down to the stuff I want to keep but don't want or need ****** aroundat the moment. So, we'll have to put things into storage..
Has anyone used any of those storage options where they bring a container/pod etc to your house, then you pack it and then they take it away and store it? Just trying to work out if this is a better option then renting the garage type unit and trundling all the stuff up there ourselves. Any opinions or experience would be great!

I looked at this link last week and it seems there are a few options out there. We just used a company called TAXIBOX (taxiboxmobileselfstorage.com.au). They brought a smallish container to my work and were reasonably priced when i compared to others (even compared to regular storage facilities). Good service too. Recommend.

Digging up a slightly old thread, but thought I could add to this thread. We are building at the moment, and renting a small house in the mean time. We have used http://portableondemandstorage.com.au/ to store some of our larger items that wouldn't fit in the house while we build. Its been great! They droped the box at our house, we fill it up with what ever we wanted (with some guidelines, eg. no gas bottles), and then they take it to their facility. Costs around $200pm. Then they deliver it back to our new house when we request it. We unload it in our own time and they take it away when your done. No messing around with tailors/ trucks back and forth from the storage facility etc. Its also your lock and key on the pod, so no one has access to it. And with about 24 hours notice you can get access to your pod at the storage facility if you need it. Fantastic system, couldn't recommend it more.
That and the "Podzilla's" they use are [edited out profanity] cool!
