Compare Storage To See The MetroBOX Difference

These days it seems like mobile self-storage companies are suddenly blooming like roses in summer.

So what is mobile self-storage? And with so many other mobile self-storage services about,
what makes MetroBOX so much better?

Storage Compare: MetroBOX is so much better than regular self-storage because:

We offer honest, up-front and all-inclusive low-cost storage quotes – GUARANTEED!

We are accredited members of the Self-Storage Association of Australia

We transport your storage to and from our secure storage facility FOR FREE*

Our experienced, trained removalists do all the heavy lifting and load your MetroBOXes quickly and securely for you.

What’s Normal Self-Storage?

- Fixed self-storage facilities allow you to book a storage unit at a storage facility and you have to either organise or do all transport and loading yourself.

- Mobile self-storage brings your storage unit to your address. In most cases, the mobile self-storage units are then left sitting insecurely on your lawn or on the street in front of your home for up to a few weeks while you slowly do all the heavy lifting yourself.

The Secure MetroBOX Advantage

MetroBOX delivers your storage unit to your address, but all the transport for FREE.*

And we won’t leave your storage unit unattended on the street in front of your house or office: your MetroBOX stays safe and secure on our truck and under supervision the whole time. It’s loaded on the spot by our fast, professional removalists while you watch. Once they’re finished, you lock it with a padlock before it’s transported straight back to our secure, indoor facility.

* Additional transport costs may apply if we deliver your MetroBOX outside of our designated Zones in Melbourne or in Sydney.

The Benefit of MetroBOX’s Professional Removalists

MetroBOX grew out of an established, trusted moving company (MetroMovers) and our removalists are all well-equipped, experienced, trained and highly skilled. That means the MetroBOX team that brings your storage unit and keeps it safe are also the skilled removalists that professionally load it up quickly and carefully for one fixed, low fee (with split payment options).

Because our professional removalists are doing all the heavy lifting, you get three distinct advantages:


Our careful removalists can safely fit more of your valuable belongings into each MetroBOX.


Our removalists are fast and highly skilled. That means they can usually load a full MetroBOX in under an hour!


You don’t have to make space for your mobile MetroBOX storage unit. It won’t sit insecurely on your lawn, in your driveway, or need permits to sit on the street in front of your home. MetroBOXes stay on our moving truck and your belongings are safely loaded directly in by our professional removalists.


Easy Self-Storage Comparison Table

If you’re seriously searching for a great storage solution, then you’re probably going back and forth comparing storage rates and services on different websites. But each company is offering slightly different services, slightly different size storage units and it’s hard to find the right information on all the different websites.

To save you a whole lot of time and trouble, we’ve created this table to clearly compare storage apples with apples: the main differences between 1 month of MetroBOX storage services and the equivalent storage unit space (8m3 - 11m3) from five of the other most popular self-storage companies in Australia.
