Located in Yass on the doorstep to Canberra, Hepworth Self Storage has been supplying household and business solutions for the Yass Valley area and environs for 17 years.

As a member of the Self Storage Association of Australasia it adheres to the standards and procedures recommended by the association.

Hepworth Self Storage is a local family business founded in 2002 by Marion and Gavin Platt-Hepworth, and the purpose-built facility has expanded over the years to meet the growing storage demands of the area.

Hepworth's location at the southern entrance to Yass offers quick access from the busy Barton Highway leading to Canberra as well as the Hume Highway, and therefore opportunities for business travellers to use storage units as a depot for merchandise.

There are 141 units and several outdoor spaces with units in eight different sizes to meet different needs and budgets. These range from the small 4x2m catering for a one bedroom house to the large 6x3m, generally known as single garage size, catering for a four to five bedroom house.

In addition to household, various local businesses have been long-term storers using the largest unit for archival purposes and freeing up their office space. Builders have also used these facilities as a depot for materials.

Safety of your goods is provided by security fencing and lighting, and entrance to the facility is provided by your own unique PIN code for electronic gates. CCTV cameras provide 24 hour surveillance, with movements in and out of the facility being recorded by a 24-hour computer tracking system. For your unit, you can secure it with your own padlock or purchase one from the office.

Hepworth's is a split-level storage facility and there are units on both levels, with each level having its own entrance gate enabling quick and easy navigation by vehicles. All units are drive-up allowing ease of loading and unloading.

You can access your goods seven days a week and the units are rented on a monthly basis, so you are not locked into any long-term lease and no deposit or bond is required.

For that extra peace of mind, storers can purchase insurance on a monthly basis through an industry recommended insurance supplier and paperwork is extremely simple.

The on-site office is conveniently located at the entrance to the upper level and is open three times a week with their friendly manager Chris Veale. Chris is a local Yass resident and has worked at Hepworth's for over three years.

Storers can also source their moving boxes and packaging materials at Hepworth's. Tea chests, book boxes and archival storage boxes are supplied in high quality recyclable material, as are bubble wrap, butchers paper and other packaging materials.
