Vmove Storage Module who we are
Vmove Storage Box is owned and operated by Vmove Removals + Storage, which has been in the moving business for over six years. While the storage options with Vmove are relatively new, the years of experience that our team brings to the job are not.
We will make sure your belongings are in the expert and secure hands of our movers. We don’t haphazardly pack modules to save on time. It is essential that we bring our knowhow to the packing procedure in order to be safe and efficient.
Your storage items will always be under surveillance, from the time they are loaded into the modules and during their time at our storage facility. We treat them like we would our own. We use moving blankets and other wrapping to make sure that your items will not be damaged during the moving process – just like a normal removals job.
Our customer service team are also standing by to assist you with any questions you may have from getting a quote, to setting up payments, and to organizing unloading. We give you a flexible two-day window in which to request the return of your modules, offering accessibility you won’t find with other companies.
Our modules can contain up to 10 cubic metres of furniture and other household items. This means you can fit a small amount of stuff easily without having to hire an entire container, but if you do need more space you won’t break the bank hiring another one.
Just how much can you fit into 10cbm? Picture 80 standard size moving boxes (50 cubic centimetres each). A queen size bed is just under 2 cubic metres, a fridge is about 1cbm, a washing machine 0.70cbm, and a 3 seater sofa 1.30cbm. A dining table is 1.20cbm, while each dining chair is about 0.15cbm. A desk is 1 cubic metre, and a standard bookshelf is around half that.
To get an idea of how many modules you will need, fill out our quote form and our calculator will make that job easier. Knowing how many modules you need can help you with decluttering. If you are just over ten or twenty cubic metres, you can take stock of the things you want to store and decide whether or not to throw them away altogether or sell them.
Some customers want to compare our storage box prices with how much a removalist costs. Most of the time, using our storage modules costs far less than loading your belongings onto our moving trucks and offloading them at the storage facility. Especially considering the costs of putting everything back on the truck and redelivering it you. However, depending on the type and size of job, it may be worth getting a quote for both.

F.A.Q Most asked questions
There are many storage options in Sydney from garages, units, cages, modules, containers, pods and taxi boxes. Storage prices vary a lot depending on the size, volume and other specific requirements you may need.
The cheapest storage is through private sellers such as space in a garage which can be as low as $10 a week. However, often this is not secure and can also be exposed to dirt and other environmental hazards. Larger storage units with 24-hour surveillance, 24-hour access, insurance, can go up to $1000 a month.
When you get quotes for storage it’s best to decide what you need first and what your priorities are. Do you need short term or long-term storage? Will you need to have easy access to your storage? Are you storing valuable items which will need good insurance cover? Then get a few quotes from storage providers who can provide the services you need and compare them.
Getting a storage unit is worth it if you are storing items you will eventually take out of storage and use. Customers who are temporarily overseas, are renovating and are in between moving out of one home and into another definitely benefit from having a safe and clean storage unit.
There are some customers, however, who simply store items they have no space for and that they don’t really need. They sometimes store items for decades, never take anything out and when it is time to empty the storage, they end up throwing most things away after spending thousands on yearly storage fees. If you are storing only because you need extra space consider other options such as giving items away, selling them or disposing of them responsibly.
This depends on how many items you need to store but here is a rough guide.
For a studio apartment/half a garage – 13 cubic metres
For a 1- or 2-bedroom home or a whole garage – 25 cubic metres
For a 3- or 4-bedroom home – 40 cubic metres.
The dimensions of the unit will depend on the type of items you are storing.
There have been cases of storage units being broken into, though this is rarely the case. Prevent this by ensuring you choose a storage company that has secure storage. Signs of a secure storage building are: surveillance cameras, good lighting, whether it is well kept, how the units are accessed (lock and key or via an access code) and staff policies. In any case make sure that the storage facility and/or yourself are covered for theft insurance so you can be compensated in the event of a theft.
You should not put anything perishable in storage such as food. Not only will it rot, but it may attract vermin. You must not store any dangerous, environmentally hazardous, flammable, or explosive goods either.
If you abandon your items in a storage unit without letting us know, we will keep charging you a storage fee. If payments stop and storage fees are outstanding we will then pursue the debt possibly using debt recovery methods that may be highly inconvenient for the customer.
If you let us know that you have no intention of picking up your items or continuing to pay for storage, we will charge a disposal fee to take your items to the tip. This may be far more expensive than picking up the items yourself and could start at $750 depending on what the items are.
Unpaid storage may or may not go on credit depending on the size of the debt and whether the storage company decides to act against you for unpaid storage. Often storage companies will avoid a situation where a customer owes a sizable debt for storage by cutting off storage services, potentially repossessing your items and disposing of them if it is their terms of contract to do so.
In the event, that the debt has become so sizeable that they are compelled to act, they may register your payment default or take legal action which could result in a court judgement. If the storage company does this, it will affect your credit rating.
As long as the TV is properly packed, wrapped and carefully loaded into the storage unit it should be safe. If you have kept the original box and padding the TV arrived in, it is best to store it inside.
Clean the TV and all its components and cables thoroughly to prevent dust mites from damaging the TV. Store it in its original box and padding if possible. If not, make sure the TV is well wrapped to avoid dust settling inside it. In storage, the TV should not be on the ground but instead placed on table or shelf to avoid exposure to moisture from the floor and should be stored in a dry, cool environment without too many fluctuations in temperature.
Storing a TV any way that is not upright is bad! If you store it upside down or on its side that can create pressure on and damage the internal components and scratch the screen. Laying the TV down can also damage the screen.
TVs can be stored between -5 to 50°C. However, a TV in storage should not be exposed to large fluctuations in temperature as it can lead the internal components to deteriorate or to function below standard.
Absolutely! To do this well, consider getting a stand and you must remove the gas tank.
This is a myth! The claim is that the motorbike should be started regularly so all the parts are well lubricated and last longer. Cold starts actually cause wear on the parts which is why it is only worth starting a motorbike in winter when you can get it to the right temperature which means a drive around. Fortunately, in most parts of Australia it doesn’t get cold enough for this to be important.
Yes, most motorbikes will fit in a 5x10 storage unit. If you are also storing other items such as accessories, you may need a bigger unit though.
Clothes can get ruined in storage if they are not properly prepared and packed or if the unit is in an extremely hot and humid climate. To prevent clothes from being ruined, wash them properly to clean them from food stains and oils that can attract pests, store them in ventilated containers and do not vacuum pack them. In Sydney, a dehumidifier is not necessary for our storage units but if you are storing in humid areas you may consider a storage facility with a dehumidifier.
Clothes can definitely go to a storage unit! To make sure your clothes are in good condition after being stored for a long time, give them a wash, pack them with lots of space in cardboard boxes that have some air (don’t tape every single side). Use cedar blocks to prevent moths. Moth balls are effective but can leave a chemical residue and scent.
All items going into storage should be cleaned and dried to ensure that any food remnants, dust or other harmful material do not cause damage to your items in the long run. Small items should be boxed up. Furniture and appliances should be wrapped in blankets or padding.
Ideally furniture should be stored in a climate-controlled, secure unit. Furniture should be disassembled before going into storage and should be wrapped in blankets or padding and the items should not touch the floor to avoid absorbing moisture from the ground. Laying cardboard or blankets under the furniture is the best way to achieve this.
Protect furniture in storage by ensuring it has been cleaned, dried, disassembled and wrapped in fabric before being packed in the unit. Hire professional removalists to pack the furniture into storage for you. They will make sure the unit is not overpacked, as the items are likely to damage each other if they are crammed too tightly. Professionals will also ensure the furniture is stacked safely.
The main protection for your belongings in storage should be the storage container/unit itself. It should be locked, waterproof and not leave your items exposed to extreme temperatures and other natural hazards.
Ensure furniture and large appliances are cleaned and also well wrapped when in storage. Hire professional removalists to pack the storage unit for you to ensure your belongings don’t fall or lean on each other.
To further protect your belongings, box up all small items and make sure they are clean and well protected in butcher paper or bubble wrap.
Deep clean your furniture so that there are no food remnants, oils or smells that could attract mice or other vermin. Wrap all the furniture with furniture pads or blankets to protect them in the long run.
