Storage King Group, which operates 142 self-storage facilities in Australia, is expanding its presence in two Melbourne suburbs. The company recently added units to an existing site in Hoppers Crossing and opened a new facility in Truganina.
The Hoppers Crossing facility at 71-75 Forsyth Road now contains 540 units, up from 275. In operation for more than 13 years, the location has won several company accolades, including this year’s “Merchandise Sales” award, according to property manager Kylie Willan.
The Truganina site opened in May at 477 Doherty Road. “We’re very happy to be part of the Storage King family,” said property manager Vicki Chandler. “We offer outside shipping-container storage, along with all the packaging needs the business is known for.”
Additional customer amenities at the company’s facilities include an online space estimator, truck rental and courier services.
Willan also announced that her location will participate in two charitable activities in October. For the entire month, the site will donate $1 for every pink tea chest sold to the McGrath Foundation, an Australian breast-cancer support and education charity. The facility will also host a “Garage Sale Trail” on Oct. 27. “It will be a great family day, with a jumping castle, fairy floss and popcorn, a coffee van, and a special guest to entertain kids,” she said.
Founded 20 years ago, Storage King operates facilities in the Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Victoria and Western Australia.
