Good quality boxes (and house moving products) for a good price!
After moving houses for three times, I know what I was looking for and what I need to really pack my stuff. I have bought expensive boxes from all sorts of places in the past but turns out that National Storage actually offers good quality boxes (all sizes) for such a good price (cheaper than Bunnings). I also got bed covers from them and they were great. They have home moving packages online - including boxes of different sizes, tapes, wrapping papers and heavy duty moving bags. Would definitely recommend if you're looking for boxes and other ...house-moving products. On a side note, my local National Storage warehouse turns out to be a parcel drop-off point too where I often take my online shopping parcels to (to be returned), and customer service is great!
Excellent products. Perfect Box set for my moving needs, super happy with purchase and price.
Moving Units after 12yrs in the same place. I really didn't want to beg, steal or borrow boxes for moving. I did a small online shop around for moving boxes combo and deals and found this one highly affordable and exactly met my needs. Mega happy that I can now just get on with packing at my pace.
Awesome value for money bundle!
I ordered the Home Movers Pack which is a fantastic value for money pack for anyone that is moving. The order was easy to place and processed quickly.
Unfortunately due to COVID19 there was a delay in receiving the parcel but this due to the couriers and not National Storage. I am only mentioning this in case you need the bundle ASAP - you are better off picking it up then.
Fast, Easy and Friendly
Made contact to discuss requirements. Was ask by Holly if I wanted to come in and view the empty units so that I can visualize the space. Shown around a clean and tidy environment.
Was advised to book online to take advantage of current promotion.
Booking completed with no fuss and Holly confirmed that everything was ok and that I fully understood the procedures for the site.
Even some additional afterservice purchases treated with friendliness and met all my needs.
Sort out your online booking system for NZ
Your online system for those booking in NZ is really bad!! Not only that, you debited my card with a reference to Queensland when the storage unit is in NZ. You didn't supply a receipt and the online lease signing option is non existent (which is a good thing because I would have had to do it all over again anyway as your contract laws don't apply in New Zealand).
Paul at the Newtown (Wellington NZ) storage facility was a straight forward, no nonsense guy and it was refreshing. He knew exactly what to do and was prepared for my arrival and had the premises COVID 19 ready. It's only because of him you got 3 stars otherwise you would have got one.
The premises and the storage space are perfect for my needs. Well done there.
This is perfect for moving house
For three weeks I needed to store my household items while waiting for my new house, this was perfect with 24 hour access so when I moved I did this in my own time. A bit pricey after the first month as you get a discount for the first month.
It’s clean, dry and safe. This was great for me.
Last year i put my furniture and personal items into storage as i was relocating i had approx 30k. I came back a few months later to discover i couldn't get into my locker and thought i must have brought the wrong key, after getting the lock cut off the roller door opened and i discovered my items stolen. People had cut the lock off stole my things and replaced a lock of their own. The whole insurance process has been an absolute joke and National storage had known about break ins a few months back locks cut, items stolen and...
Left us stranded with a loaded trailer
Despite advertising “Contact-free Move-in”
They don’t ever mention that you can’t move in if there’s no one in the office when you get there. How that is “Contact-free” is beyond me, but worse it meant we got there mid afternoon, armed with all the PIN numbers and details they sent, ready to offload our stuff, and found that we couldn’t because it was a public holiday and there’s no one on site on a public holiday.
Perhaps they could have mentioned that information somewhere in all the emails they sent. Couldn’t even cancel the booking and go ...
We tried to rent a 9m x 3m open air lot for our boat. Upon inspection, there was a big pile of gravel taking up 1.5m at the end of the lot which we were told was used for potholes. We asked for it to be moved so we could get the boat in and were told that the pile of gravel could not be moved. Only 7.5m was usable space but had to pay for 9m and was told the boat was not allowed to stick out the front. The young lady showing us around was no help whatsoever, just kept repeating we can't move it. Absolutely pointless and a huge waste of time. This was going to be long term storage but clearly they don't want our business.
Questions & Answers
How long does a refund from national storage take
This is a good question. They take payment ever so quickly, however when asking for a refund their response is it will take up to 14 days. I had to argue my case for a refund, through continuous emails due to a error of their computer system while processing my application. Having called a few more times asking about my refund it finally turned up in my bank account after the 14 days stated by the staff member.
