What others say about us

“Hi, my name is Wal. I have been using the facilities at My Storage for more than five years. It has easy access, is secure and storage units are clean and dry. Adrian the boss, is a good guy to deal with, but Inge in the office is something special. I look forward to seeing you at My Storage soon”.


“The thought of having to source and deal with putting my furniture etc into storage was something I had put off until I had no choice. I found My Storage in Richmond through the internet. And when I rang My Storage, Inge Stirling was so helpful, within a couple of hours Inge had everything organised on my behalf. My Storage is very accessible and extremely competitive, and a pleasure to deal with. Thank you “.

Secure Storage

MyStorage has point to point beams located in different areas of the storage complex. These beams are activated at night and are monitored by a local Nelson security firm. My Storage has high definition IP security cameras in various locations of the Storage Complex, continuously monitoring the complex 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There is also an option for individually alarmed units. An extra fee is charged for a fully alarmed unit. If an unauthorised person attempts enter a unit, it will activate the alarm, which will notify the security firm who will then investigate. To secure the unit a padlock is required, that you supply, or for your convenience, can be purchased from the Richmond office.


Two weeks’ notice is required to be given to the Licensor if on a long-term open Storage Licence Agreement. The Licensee will ensure the unit has been cleaned and tidied by the end of their Licence Agreement.


The goods you have in a self-storage unit are yours and remain your sole responsibility. You should always have them covered by insurance. Check with your insurance provider to see if your cover has provision for items in storage.

How can I pay?

Payment is required before entry will be given.  You can pay by cash, cheque, EFTPOS, Internet banking or online [Link to Online payment].  If you are storing long term with us, we ask that a monthly automatic payment be set up with your bank.

What if I don’t pay?

There are several steps we undertake if (outstanding) invoices are not paid on time. You will receive a series of overdue letters, beginning with a friendly reminder for a missed payment after 3 days. Subsequent 7, 14, and 21-day letters will follow this if fees remain unpaid. If payment still has not been received after a month, we overlock the containers, with further action taken

If you don’t pay your due storage fees you will be charged interest on any overdue accounts. We will also overlock your unit and deny you access until all overdue fees are up to date.  Alternatively, under the terms of the storage licence we reserve the right to sell your goods to recover the money owed.  If your goods do not cover the outstanding account or you have left without paying, we will lodge the overdue account with our debt collectors; this will affect your credit rating.

Can you recommend Furniture Removers?

Yes, we can recommend a Remover on your behalf, if required.

Do I need to book a storage unit in advance?

It is advisable to book a unit to ensure the storage unit is available when you need it. Bookings are held for one week during our busy periods (spring and summer). During winter months, we can hold the unit for up to a month depending on availability.

Can I move in today?

Yes, if we have a unit available and our storage licence is completed and advanced payment received.

Do I have to sign an agreement prior to moving in?

Yes. All rented units require a storage licence. Our storage agreement outlines our terms and conditions.
