Storage: Keeping Things Safe

If you are planning to place your belongings into a storage unit, you will want to make sure that they are safe. My name is Peter, I live in Perth.

I didn't want to sell them, so I decided to put them into storage until I had the room to set to up again. I found a great storage company who gave me lots of fantastic advice about how to keep the items safe. I hope this advice will be of help to you.
