Here are some excerpts from a recent news article about the mobile storage industry in Australia:
Mobile self-storage travels well, The Australian, 30 August 2008
“People in the cities love the concept of mobile. They don’t have to fight the traffic,” Cudars says. “Mobile storage units can provide temporary storage of non-essential items. For example, storing rather than selling a family heirloom, Grandma’s rosewood furniture, de-cluttering a home prior to a sale; and business owners storing stock and files to free up expensive floor space.”
As a niche industry, mobile storage takes self-storage and opens up new market opportunities. “You no longer have to waste hours of valuable time checking for the nearest available storage, or deal with the hassle of renting a truck or trailer”.
