Save a truckload on truck rental. At Rent a Space we offer a FREE truck & driver move-in service at all of our self storage locations. We’ll provide the truck and driver, all you need to do is grab a friend or make use of our partnership with Airtasker to help you load and unload your belongings.
Our FREE truck & driver move in service runs three times a day 7 days/week. Once you’ve decided on the right storage space, simply give us a call and we can book your truck and driver at the same time. Service is subject to availability so book early – spots fill up quickly, especially on weekends.
The size of the truck is a 3.5 Tonne Pantech truck with a carrying capacity of approximately 17m3 and is perfect for medium sized moves and comes with a hydraulic lift and tie down rails throughout the truck. We have moving blankets, ropes and a hand trolley equipped in all of our trucks.
Use of free truck and driver
The truck and driver are provided FREE of charge as a service to our new storers to move their possessions into our Rent a Space Centre (one trip only to move in). The collection will only be confirmed on payment of the $20 deposit.
Assistance with loading or unloading
The driver and other Rent a Space Self Storage employees or agents are prohibited from assisting with the loading or unloading of the truck. Only Rent a Space employees or their agent(s) may drive or ride in the truck.
A new storer’s possessions will only be moved within the “service area” of the Rent a Space facility. The service area refers to a 10km distance to/from the relevant Rent a Space Store you have reserved your unit in the Sydney Metropolitan area.
Location for loading and unloading of goods
The location where the truck is to be parked for loading must be flat and acceptable to the driver and not against any road rules for parking the truck. On arrival at our facility, the driver will park the truck as close as the driver deems possible to the rented storage space or at the service area.
Legal ownership, and dangerous and unlawful possessions
The storer agrees to load the truck only with lawful possessions to which the storer has legal title ownership and/or possession. The storer agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Rent a Space Self Storage, its agents and employees from any loss, legal fees, damage, judgement cost or expense arising out of or concerning the storer’s use or possession of the truck. The storer agrees that they will not load the truck with items not allowed under the terms of the storage agreement.
Liability and insurance
Rent a Space Self Storage, its agents and employees shall not be liable to the storer for any damage to, loss or theft of the storer’s possessions prior to, during or after the course of the move. Note: Rent a Space Self Storage, its agents and employees have NO responsibility should damage occur while your possessions are being moved.

Upon move in, your $20 deposit will become your refundable security deposit on your unit.
