Storage Terms and Conditions

In addition to the terms and conditions that are included in our standard Self-Storage Agreement, we also have a number of common sense policies. All of your goods stored with us should be appropriately packaged, ideally using our recommended packaging as available in our Box Shop. For example, if you store a mattress, it must be stored in a protective cover to ensure that it remains in the same condition as when it is first stored. If you have any questions about how to store your goods, please feel free to ask our friendly staff here at Global Self Storage Alexandria.

The following important points appear as a summary within our standard Self-Storage Agreement. All clauses referenced in this summary are shown in full in the terms and conditions page.

  • All payments are to be made in advance by you (the Storer).
  • Goods are stored at your own risk. We recommend that you take out insurance cover.
  • The Facility Owner (the “FO”) is excluded from liability for the loss of any goods stored on its
    premises, except for laws which cannot be excluded, including rights under the Australian
    Consumer Law.
  • You must not store hazardous, dangerous, illegal, stolen, perishable, environmentally harmful or
    explosive goods.
  • Unless specifically itemised and covered by insurance you must also not store goods that are
    irreplaceable such as currency, jewellery, furs, deeds, paintings, curios, works of art and items
    of personal sentimental value or items worth more than $2000 AUD in total. While the FO takes
    reasonable care to provide a secure Space, we cannot guard against all risks and unforeseen
    circumstances beyond our control and therefore, we recommend that you take out insurance in
    relation to items you intend to store in the Space or store valuable goods in places specifically
    designed for this purpose (i.e. a safety deposit box).
  • The Space will only be accessible during set access hours as posted by the FO.
  • …………………….. days notice must be given for termination of this agreement.
  • The Storer must notify the FO of all changes to their or the ACP’s address, e-mail, telephone
    numbers or other contact details.
  • If you fail to comply with material terms in this agreement the FO will have certain rights which
    include forfeiture of your Deposit and the right to seize and sell and/or dispose of your goods
    (see clause 6).
  • The FO may have the right to refuse access if all fees are not paid promptly (see clause 11).
  • The FO has the right to enter the Space in certain circumstances (see clauses 6, 13, 14, 19,
    20, 21 & 23).
  • The FO may use a microprobe or CCTV to view inside the Space and rely on footage to enforce
    the contract, and/or may release footage to authorities (see clause 21A) in certain circumstances,
    including where the FO reasonably suspects breach of the law or damage to premises.
  • The FO may discuss your account, any default and your details with the ACP. Upon termination
    or default, the FO may elect to release items to the ACP (see clause 10(i)).
