Moving house is tedious and stressful. The Space Station is a gift for convenience, access, and a reasonable rent. The bonus feature is super-professional manager Marianne, who brings sanity, calm and practicality. And then there is the sheer joy of the building.. those floors! That lift! Utter classics.. How lucky Parnell is, still to have this place!
Thank you so much for helping me out this year with all my enquiries. Fantastic service and I recommend you to all my friends if they need storage. Thank you for your exceptional service and kindness.
You have been a great help from the moment I called you in May 2020 when I was dealing with the emotion of packing up family home in Christchurch, to advising me on carriers to use etc
My piano had a great home for 18 months and the unit was very handy with our renovations last year and being able to access when ever we wanted (post level 4) as so close to home.
I have recommended Space Station on a Facebook group I belong to where members can ask for recommendations on all things. We know where you are if we need to rent again.
We have had a relationship with the business that dates back to 2000. At this time we lived offshore for 6 years and rented one of the large storage spaces. At all times the service was faultless. I returned to New Zealand at least three times a year over this period and when checking our possessions always found them clean, dry and without any insect infestation. Most importantly, Mary was always on deck and ready to help.
It was for this reason that after the February earthquake in Christchurch that I immediately to Mary for help as we had to move my mother and all her possessions here in a hurry. Nothing was too much trouble and today we emptied her storage room as she is now returning to Christchurch. For the time being this will end our association with this excellent storage facility. However should we need to, we will definitely use them in the future.
Maximum Stars Review: We found the Space Station storage facilities at Parnell very convenient, very secure with no signs of vermin, and communal space kept very clean and tidy. We appreciated easy access for parking and unloading/loading items. Trolleys were readily available to help transport items to your allocated storage space. The staff were helpful, friendly and professional. We would highly recommend them.
From the first meeting with the General Manager of the facility, I felt my belongings were in safe hands at Space Station. She knows the ins and outs of the business and provides efficient and friendly service in a facility which is professionally run and organized! As such, compared to other storage facilities that were site inspected prior to renting a unit at Space Station, what impressed me at Space Station was the people-oriented culture.
Further factors contributing to the decision-making was that the facility is manned continuously during its opening hours and locked after office hours and the storage unit, as is the rest of Space Station, was solidly built and handed to me in a clean condition.
In our travels we have used storage facilities in many parts of the world. We have been particularly pleased with your company. The rooms/lockers are generous sizes, secure and clean. We like the way we are greeted by the friendly helpful staff especially when we have been making contact from overseas.
In 1984 our kids were due to start school and we were becoming tired of each of us having to drive separately from outer Pukekohe into Auckland City for our respective work . We decided to make a dramatic change and sell our life-style block and buy a townhouse closer to the CBD. The only difficulty was we were moving from a fully furnished home of 3,400 sq. feet to one of 2,300 sq. ft.
A friend cheerfully suggested that we put all the spare stuff in the Space Station.
“Yeah, right.” I said.” Somewhere out near the airport I suppose.”
“No, no “ he said. “It’s a real place. It’s down in St Georges Bay Rd in Parnell. It’s an old Wool Store and they have divided it up into all different size units and you can rent by the month.”
I went and had a look. It was exactly what we needed. And because you can stack stuff, we didn’t need 1,000 sq. feet
I was in there the other day and was reminiscing with the manager about all the things that had gone on over the last 34 years.
Every six months or so, we go in and select paintings and ornaments that have been stored and redecorate at home. We also lent furniture to the kids to go flatting and then after a couple of years it came back. We lent a bed a table and four chairs to my cousin when he was unceremoniously evicted from his marital home. We later got it back all freshly re-polished and looking like new. This last week it went out on loan to a nephew buying his first home. You can also store sports gear there between seasons or longer if size is a worry and the young ones aren’t big enough yet.
During this period I expanded my business and decided it was far cheaper to store old files in the space station than in a glass tower in the CBD. They are open all business hours and weekends as well, so access is really good.
I can’t believe it’s been 34 years. You should try it. It’s a real place in St Georges Bay Road in Parnell.
Thank you so much for your outstanding professionalism today in finding the answer to my storage problem. I really was having nightmares about my accumulation of boxes, but have peace of mind now they have found a ‘home’!
I have had my household goods in storage at Space Station for nearly 3 years whilst travelling overseas and cannot praise highly enough the fantastic service that I received from this Company.
When my insurance company requested regular inspections, Space Station happily obliged.
My goods are now on a ship to England. In preparation for this, Space Station offered great support when further boxes were delivered to my unit for shipment and ensuring that the removal company were able to do their job.
I would highly recommend.
Thank you so much for your help. You are awesome. Best customer service I dealt with. Please pass this compliment on to your manager. You deserve it. Cheers.
