Storage King Berkeley Vale is a new, purpose built, multi-level ranch style facility which lies midway between the larger centres of Sydney and Newcastle. It services the central coast of NSW which has a mixed demographic (due to being an established holiday destination and a growing residential area), which includes small business people, tradesmen and contractors, retirees, students, large and small families, professionals, renovators and more.
Storage King Berkeley Vale provides lockable units from 2.25square metres to 27 square metres as well as hardstand for cars, boats, caravans and shipping containers. The majority of larger units are drive-up style, and the buildings have extended eaves to protect customers and their goods from the weather during the move-in or move-out process. The facility also offers many of the modern ancillary aspects to storage such as environmentally friendly pest control, managed storage, 24 hour recorded close circuit surveillance, back to base monitoring with instant alerts to staff in case of alarm trigger, customer goods insurance, courtesy move-in truck and trailer and a box and packaging shop.
The business is currently in the process of expanding from Stage 1 (2179 square meters, which reached 71% occupancy within 8 months of opening) to Stages 2 and 3, which will afford it approximately 5000 square metres of lettable area by the end of September 2015, including 36 square metre clear span high ceiling units (designed to fill a market niche for small business clients).
