Terms and Conditions

Mobile Self Storage Agreement

THE AGREEMENT

1. The Storer and the Facility Owner (‘FO’) agree that the Agreement is entirely contained within this document, the Privacy Documents, Schedule of Costs and non-excludable guarantees under consumer protection laws or any non-excludable legislative requirements.

2. The Storer may store items (“Goods”) in the Mobile Storage Unit (‘Storage Unit’) allocated by the FO pursuant to the terms and conditions in this Agreement:
(a) The Storer is deemed to have knowledge of the Goods in the Storage Unit;
(b) The Storer warrants that they are the owner of the Goods in the Storage Unit and/or are entitled at law to deal with the Goods in accordance with all aspects of this Agreement;
(c) The Storer warrants that they have a proprietary interest in the Storer’s Premises where the Storage Unit is to be delivered and located.

3. The FO:
a) does not have, and will not be deemed to have, knowledge of the Goods;
b) is not a bailee nor a warehousemen of the Goods nor a lessor of the Storage Unit and the Storer acknowledges that as the FO has no means of accessing the Storage Unit without using force and the FO does not take possession of the Goods in the Storage Unit whilst onsite at the Storage Facility (“Facility”), offsite or in transit.
DELIVERY OF STORAGE UNIT
4. On and from the Commencement Date and at the Storer’s own expense the Storer shall make written requests to the FO for the delivery and pick up of the Storage Unit to and from the Storer’s designated Premises (‘Premises’) at times agreed to by the FO and the Storer. The Storer or a nominated Agent of the Storer is required to be present at the time of delivery and pick up. A failure to do so will render the Storer liable for any costs arising from this failure to be present at the time of delivery and pick up (see cl 14 ). In the unlikely event that the FO is not able to deliver or pick up the Storage Unit at the agreed time, the FO will contact the Storer. The FO, however, will not be liable for any delay, loss, or damage resulting from delay in delivery or pick up by the FO. All pick-ups and deliveries are subject to the Facility’s distance, fees and weight limits applicable to the Storage Unit as outlined in the Schedule of Costs.
5. FO inspection of the Storage Unit: The Storer agrees to inspect the Storage Unit before executing this Agreement, to ensure that the Storer is satisfied with the condition, quality, safety and (where applicable) roadworthiness of the Storage Unit, its fitness for the Storer’s purposes and its compliance with description. The Storer agrees that it is the Storer’s responsibility to determine whether the Storage Unit is suitable for intended storage needs and on taking delivery of the Storage Unit, they will accept the Storage Unit in the manner in which they inspected it, including with any known faults and defects (if any) (subject to any rights and remedies of the Storer, including those under the Consumer Guarantees in Australian Consumer Law.)
6. Written acknowledgement of acceptance: The Storer will give the FO a written acceptance of the Storage Unit. The delivery of such an acceptance to the FO will constitute acceptance of the Storage Unit by the Storer for the purposes of this Agreement. The acceptance does not affect any rights the Storer has to terminate in accordance with the terms of this Agreement or seek a remedy under the Consumer Guarantees.
DEFAULT ACTION AND RIGHT TO TRESPASS
7. Notwithstanding cl 3, and subject to cl 35, the Storer agrees that, in the event of any Storage Fees, or any other moneys owing under this Agreement, not being paid in full within 42 days of the due date, the FO may, after giving reasonable prior notice, either:
(i) enter the Storage Unit, by force or otherwise and take possession of the Goods inside the Storage Unit, where the Storage Unit is physically located at the Facility or;
(ii) where the Storage Unit is not physically located at the Facility, enter upon or onto the Storer’s Premises by trespass where the Storage Unit is being stored and may break open any gate, door or fastening and detach or dismantle the Storage Unit from any part of the Premises to which the Storage Unit has been affixed and retake the Storage Unit, then enter the Storage Unit by force or otherwise and take possession of any Goods inside the Storage Unit.
Where Storage Fees are 42 days overdue (a) The Storer consents to the FO retaining the Deposit and/or dumping at the Storer’s Premises, selling or disposing of any Goods in the Storage Unit on such terms as the FO may determine (‘Default Action’). The FO will provide Notice to the Storer prior to undertaking such activities.
(b) At least 14 days before the FO can take any Default Action the FO will provide the Storer with Notice that the Storer is in Default. The FO will provide the Storer with reasonable time to rectify the Default before any Default Action is taken.
(c) The FO may also require payment of Default Action costs, including costs associated with accessing the Storer’s Storage Unit and disposing or selling of the Storer’s Goods. Any excess funds will be returned to the Storer as soon as reasonably practicable of the sale of any goods. In the event that the Storer cannot be located, excess funds will be dealt with in accordance with various State and Territory Unclaimed Monies/Goods Act. In the event that the Storer has more than one Storage Unit licenced with the FO, default on either Storage Units authorises the FO to take Default Action against all Storage Units licenced.
(d) For the purposes of the Personal Property Securities Act 2009, the FO is deemed to be in possession of the items from the moment the FO accesses the Storage Unit.
(e) If the FO reasonably believes it is a health and safety risk to conduct an inventory of Goods
in the Storage Unit, subject to the FO providing the Storer with reasonable prior notice of its
intention to do so, the FO may dispose of some or all of the Goods without undertaking an inventory. Further, due to the inherent health and safety risks in relation to undertaking any sale or disposal of Goods whereby the FO must handle the Storer’s Goods, the FO need not open or empty bags or boxes to undertake an inventory or assess the contents therein, and may elect to instead dispose of all bagged and/or boxed items without opening them.
OWNERSHIP OF STORAGE UNIT
8. The FO retains title to the Storage Unit: The FO retains full title to the Storage Unit notwithstanding:
(a) the delivery of the Storage Unit to the Storer’s Premises;
(b) the use of the Storage Unit by the Storer; and
(c) any temporary attachment of the Storage Unit to any land or buildings to facilitate use of the Storage Unit, where the Storage Unit is physically located at the Storer’s property with a right only to use the Storage Unit in accordance with, and under, this Agreement.
(d) The Storer does not have any right or option to purchase or sell the Storage Unit.
9. Notifying third parties: The Storer must help protect the FO’s interest in the Storage Unit, including making clear to others that the FO is the owner of the Storage Unit.

If requested by the FO, the Storer must put plates on the Storage Unit that state that the FO owns the Storage Unit.
LOCATION OF STORAGE UNIT
10. No unauthorised removal from location: Except during transit between these two locations, the Storage Unit must at all times be either:
(a) located at the Storer’s Premises, or
(b) located at the Facility.
11. Where the Storage Unit is movable, the Storer must not remove the Storage Unit from the Premises where it has been delivered by the FO without the FO’s prior written consent.
12. FO’s rights must prevail: If the Storage Unit has become affixed to any land or premises in a manner that the FO reasonably considers has prejudiced or jeopardised (or may do so) the FO’s rights in, or title to, the Storage Unit, the Storer must take such action as the FO reasonably requires to preserve the FO’s rights in, and title to, the Storage Unit at the Storer’s own cost.
RENT AND OTHER PAYMENTS
13. The Storer must upon signing the Agreement, pay to the FO:
(a) the Deposit (which will be refunded within 30 days of termination of this Agreement in accordance with these terms) and/or
(b) the Administration Fee.
14. The Storer is responsible to pay all fees set out in the Schedule of Costs including but not limited to:
(a) the Storage Fee being the amount indicated in this Agreement. The FO may increase the Storage Fee from time to time provided that the initial ‘Agreement Period’ as indicated on the front of this Agreement has expired and the FO gives the Storer 6 weeks’ prior written notice of the intended increase. In the event of a Storage Fee increase, the Storer is entitled to terminate the Agreement without penalty for exercising early termination, provided the Storer does so before the Storage Fee increase takes effect. The Storage Fee is payable in advance and it is the Storer’s responsibility to make payment directly to the FO on time, and in full, throughout the period of the Agreement. Any Storage Fees paid by direct deposit/direct credit (“Direct Payment”) will not be credited to Storer’s account unless the Storer identifies the Direct Payment clearly and as reasonably directed by the FO. The Storer indemnifies the FO from any claim for enforcement of the Agreement, including the sale or disposal of the Storage Unit, due to the Storer’s material failure to correctly identify a Direct Payment;
(b) the Cleaning Fee, as indicated in the Schedule of Costs, payable at the FO’s reasonable discretion;
(c) a Delivery Fee/Pick up Fee as referred to in the Schedule of Costs which is subject to the Facility’s distance, fees and weight limits applicable to the Storage Unit as also outlined in the Schedule of Costs;
(d) the Late Payment Fee, as indicated in the Schedule of Costs;
(e) a No Show Fee, where the Storer gives an Access Notice or Redelivery Notice in accordance with clause 17 and is not in attendance at the time and date set in the Access Notice and/or Redelivery Notice. Where this is a final Access Notice (‘Termination pick up’) the Storage Fees will also continue to apply until the Storage Unit can be collected
(f) a Booking Fee, which will be forfeited by the Storer in circumstances where the Storer fails to accept the Storage Unit in accordance with cl 4, and such a failure is not attributable to negligence of the FO or breach by the FO of this Agreement or any law. Otherwise the Booking Fee will be credited towards the first month’s Storage Fees; and
(g) any reasonable costs incurred by the FO in collecting late or unpaid Storage Fees, or in enforcing this Agreement in any way, including but not limited to postal, telephone, debt collection, personnel and/or the Default Action costs.

Failure to be present after giving Access Notice will attract a No Show fee as indicated on the front of the Agreement. Short Notice Access may be negotiated on terms that are reasonably acceptable to the FO and Storer.
18. Maintenance: The Storer must when the Storage Unit is at the Storer’s Premises keep and maintain the Storage Unit properly serviced, in proper working order and condition and in good and substantial repair. The FO will make due allowance for normal wear and tear but the Storage Unit must at all times be capable of being operated fully and efficiently for the purpose, and to the capacity, for which such Storage Units are ordinarily intended .
(a) The Storer will be fully responsible to the FO for any loss of or damage to the Storage Unit (however occasioned) when the Storage Unit is at the Storer’s Premises. The Storer must give notice to the FO in writing as soon as reasonably practicable after they become aware that damage has occurred, but not more than 48 hours after they become aware of any such loss or damage of a substantial or material nature/in excess of normal wear and tear.
19. Use of Storage Unit: The Storer must only operate and maintain the Storage Unit for the purposes and in the manner the FO has specified and in accordance with recognised methods and standards for Storage Units of their type and not use (or allow any other persons to use) the Storage Unit in a way which would break laws or harm people or property.

(a) In the case of an emergency, no notice will be required to be given by the FO to the Storer under this clause and the prohibition in that clause on the FO unduly interfering with the Storer’s operations will not apply.
21. Where the FO becomes aware that minor damage, alteration or affixation has occurred to the Storage Unit beyond normal wear and tear the FO will give the Storer a written notice requiring the rectification of the damage, alteration or affixation of the Storage Unit within seven (7) days in accordance with the terms of this Agreement see cl 25.
(a) Where the damage, alteration or affixation is deemed major in the reasonable opinion of the FO, such as would stop someone else from licencing the Storage Unit in future, makes the Storage Unit unsafe etc. the Storer will be required to purchase the Storage Unit at its commercial value. Commercial Value will be calculated as being the replacement value of the Storage Unit less a reasonable deduction allowing for the age of the Storage Unit.

The Storer must not direct the FO to unload the Storage Unit to a Premises which would not comply with this clause.
(a) Without limiting the generality of this clause, it is agreed as follows:
If the Premises is owned by the Storer the Storage Unit(s) are deemed not to be fixtures. In those circumstances:
(i) the Storage Unit may be removed by the FO providing reasonable prior notice to the Storer in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement;
(ii) the FO will be entitled to enter upon the Premises providing reasonable prior notice to the Storer for the purpose of removing the Storage Unit in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement and will not be liable in respect of loss or damage arising from such entry or from the removal of the Storage Unit; and
(iii) if the Premises is to become the subject of a mortgage or charge then, before the Storer gives the mortgage or charge, the Storer must, without any request from the FO, obtain the written acknowledgment of the proposed mortgagee or chargee (as the case may be) that, first, the Storage Unit(s) are not fixtures for the purposes of the proposed mortgage or charge, secondly, that the mortgagee or chargee will not make any claim in relation to the Storage Unit(s) and, thirdly, that the mortgagee or chargee will permit the FO, (whether or not there has been any default under the proposed mortgage or charge) to enter upon the land or premises and to remove the Storage Unit(s).
(c) Prior to the Storage Unit becoming attached, affixed or secured to a Premises which is not owned by the Storer, the Storer must obtain the written consent of the owner of the land or premises to the entry by the FO and the removal of the Storage Unit. As between FO and the Storer the FO will have the same rights of entry and removal as set out in cl 7.
23. Name plates and identification of Storage Unit: The Storer must not without the FO’s prior written consent, remove, change, alter or deface any name, name plate, identification number, trademark or any other identifying mark or number on the Storage Unit, except so as to indicate any replacement, alteration or addition.

(i) a repairer’s lien, in which case the Storer must take the necessary steps to have the lien removed or satisfied immediately and, in any event, immediately upon demand by the FO; and
(ii) such interest as may arise by operation of law in respect of unpaid rates, taxes, fees or duties of any kind whatsoever, in which case the Storer must immediately pay the same as provided in this Agreement so that the Storage Unit will be free of that interest, provided that where the FO elects to satisfy the interest at the FO’s cost the Storer must on demand reimburse the FO the amount paid and any incidental costs and expenses; or
(b) conceal or alter the Storage Unit or make any addition to the Storage Unit except as required by law.
COMPLIANCE WITH SAFETY RULES
26. The Storer must comply in all respects with all applicable laws, regulations, requirements and rules reasonably necessary for the safe and lawful operation of the Storage Unit.
(a) If any additional or other equipment, appliance, part, instrument, appurtenance, accessory, replacement or alteration is required to be acquired, incorporated or installed in, or attached or made to, the Storage Unit in order to comply with applicable laws, regulations, requirements or rules the Storer agrees to acquire, incorporate, install, attach or make such addition, equipment, appliance, part, instrument, appurtenance, accessory, replacement or alteration forthwith upon becoming aware of the requirement, but will first obtain the FO’s prior written consent to do so, or upon demand by the FO. Any such additional or other equipment, appliance, part, instrument, appurtenance, accessory, replacement or alteration will be at the FO’s cost and, unless otherwise agreed in writing by the FO, without any further act of the FO and the Storer or either of them, become the property of the FO and be considered part of the Storage Unit for all purposes of this Agreement. Where a Storer requests an alteration to a Storage Unit and the FO agrees to such request, any such changes will be at the Storer’s sole cost and (subject to fair wear and tear) the Storer must return the Storage Unit in the condition in which it received it, unless otherwise agreed in writing by the parties.
RISK AND RESPONSIBILITY
27. The FO’s goods and services come with non-excludable guarantees under the Australian Consumer Law, including that Goods are of acceptable quality and that services will be provided with due care and skill. Nothing in this Agreement is intended to restrict or limit any rights a Storer may have under these laws. Otherwise, to the extent permitted by law, the Goods are stored at the sole risk and responsibility of the Storer who shall bear responsibility for any and all theft, damage to, and deterioration of the Goods, shall bear the risk and any and all damages caused by flood or fire or leakage or overflow of water, mildew, mould, heat, spillage of material from any other Storage Unit, removal or delivery of the Goods, pest or vermin or any other reason whatsoever.
28. Where loss, damage or injury is caused by the Storer, the Storer’s actions or the Storer’s Goods, the Storer agrees to indemnify and keep indemnified the FO from all claims for any loss of or damage to the property of, or personal injury to or death of the Storer, the Facility, the FO or third parties resulting from or incidental to the use of the Space by the Storer, including but not limited to the storage of Goods in the Space, the Goods themselves and/or accessing the Facility.
29. Certain laws may apply to the storage of goods including criminal, bankruptcy, liquidation and others. The Storer acknowledges and agrees to comply with all relevant laws, including Acts and Ordinances, Regulations, By-laws, and Orders, as are or may be applicable to the use of the Space. This includes laws relating to the material which is stored, and the manner in which it is stored. Such liability and responsibility rests with the Storer, and includes any and all costs resulting from such a breach.
30. If the FO reasonably believes that the Storer is not complying with any relevant laws the FO may take any action as it reasonably believes to be necessary, including the action outlined in clauses 20 & 7, trespassing in order to access the Storage Unit, contacting, cooperating with and/or submitting Goods to the relevant authorities, and/or immediately disposing of or removing the Goods at the Storer’s expense, including where in the FO’s reasonable opinion the Storer is engaging in illegal activity in relation to the storage of the Goods. No failure or delay by the FO to exercise its rights under this Agreement will operate to waive those rights.
31. Indemnity against other costs and liabilities: Except where caused by breach by the FO of this Agreement or negligence on the part of the FO, the Storer assumes liability for, and indemnifies and will keep indemnified, the FO and its agents and employees from and against any and all injuries, actions, proceedings, claims, demands, liabilities, losses, damages, costs, penalties and all expenses legal or otherwise (including court costs and legal fees reasonably incurred) and of whatsoever kind and nature (including claims based in tort):
(a) arising out of or alleged to arise out of the delivery, installation, location, ownership, possession, use (including by reason of the use or incorporation of any invention resulting in infringements of patents), repair, maintenance, storage, or operation of the Storage Unit, and by whomsoever used or operated (except where used by the FO or any person on behalf of the FO); or
(b) incurred by the FO in respect of any loss of the Storage Unit by seizure, distress, execution or other legal process, confiscation or forfeiture of the Storage Unit; or
(c) arising out of any claim for patent, trademark or copyright infringement, for strict liability, or for any other reason being made against the FO in connection with the Storage Unit or their operation.
INSURANCE
32. The Storer warrants that it will not store property which is irreplaceable, such as currency, jewellery, furs, deeds, paintings, curios, works of art, or items of personal sentimental value or that are worth more than $2,000 (in aggregate) unless specifically itemised and covered specifically by insurance.
TERMINATION
33. Subject to the either party’s right to terminate for breach of the Agreement under Contract Law, once the initial fixed Agreement Period as indicated on the front of the Agreement has ended, either party may terminate this Agreement by giving the other party Notice of the Termination Date in accordance with the period indicated on the front of this Agreement.
(a) In the event of any activities reasonably considered by the FO to be illegal, environmentally harmful, or a material contravention of this Agreement on the part of the Storer, the FO will notify the Storer and the Storer will have 3 Business Days to provide evidence to the FO that its activities are not in breach of the Agreement, or otherwise unlawful. If the Storer fails to provide evidence to the FO’s satisfaction, the FO, acting reasonably, may terminate the Agreement with Notice within the initial fixed period. Where the FO suspects that there may be danger to person or property, the FO may contact relevant authorities and terminate the Agreement without prior Notice within the initial fixed period.
(b) The FO is entitled to retain or charge apportioned Storage Fees if less than the requisite Notice is given by the Storer and the FO is not able to licence out the Storage Unit during this time. The Storer must remove all items from the Storage Unit before the Storage Unit is due to be picked-up at the Storer’s Premises or re-possessed at the Facility and leave the Storage Unit in a clean condition and in a good state of repair to the satisfaction of the FO.
(c) Where the Storage Unit requires pick up, the FO will pick up the Storage Unit at the time and date given to the Storer by the FO. The Storer authorises the FO to enter upon the Storer’s Premises in order to repossess the Storage Unit with prior Notice. If after such Notice has been provided and the FO has used reasonable efforts to contact the Storer and the Storer is not onsite for this pick up then the FO and its employees and agents may, without liability or legal process, enter upon or onto the Premises and may break open any gate, door or fastening and detach or dismantle the Storage Unit from any part of the Premises to which the Storage Unit has been affixed.
(d) In the event that Goods are left in the Storage Unit after the Termination Date, cl 35 will apply.
(e) The Storer must pay any outstanding Storage Fees and any expenses on default or any other moneys owed to the FO up to the Termination Date, or cl 7 may apply. Any calculation of the outstanding fees will be by the FO, acting reasonably.
(f) Where the Storer fails to return the Storage Unit to the FO after 8 weeks of termination of this Agreement by either party and subject to the terms of this Agreement, the Storer must pay to the FO the commercial cost of replacing the Storage Unit. The FO will give 14 days’ notice to the Storer before imposition of this cost. The commercial cost will be calculated as being the replacement value of the Storage Unit less a reasonable deduction allowing for the age of the Storage Unit.
34. The Parties’ liability for outstanding moneys, property damage, personal injury, environmental damage and legal responsibility under this Agreement survive the termination of this Agreement.
RIGHT TO DISPOSE
35. Upon termination of this Agreement by either the Storer or the FO, the Storer is required to empty any and all Goods in the Storage Unit prior to the Storage Unit being removed from the Storer’s Premises. Where any items are left in the Storage Unit and are not subject to default action under cl 7, the Storer authorises the FO to remove any remaining items and leave them at the Premises where the Storage Unit was collected. The FO will provide Notice to the Storer prior to undertaking such activities. If after such Notice has been provided and the FO has used reasonable efforts to contact the Storer, the Storer waives liability for any loss, damage, and theft that arises as a result of the items being left at the Premises. Where the goods are brought back to the Facility, the FO must give the Storer 7 days’ Notice before disposing of the goods left in the Storage Unit. Further, where the FO reasonably believes that the Storer is unwilling or unable to remove Goods from the Space upon termination or default of the Agreement, despite reasonable notice under these terms, the FO may allow the ACP to remove the Goods on such terms as agreed between the FO and the ACP without the need for further consent from the Storer.
SEVERANCE
36. If any clause, term or provision of this Agreement is legally unenforceable or is made inapplicable, or in its application would breach any law, that clause, term or provision shall be severed or read down, but so as to maintain (as far as possible) all other terms of the Agreement.
EXTENSION OF AGREEMENT
37. Where the Storer continues to use the Storage Unit after the expiration or termination of this Agreement, the Storer must (without prejudice to the exercise by the FO of its rights, powers and remedies under this Agreement) continue to pay Storage Fees at the Facility’s current commercial rate. All other terms and conditions set out in this Agreement will continue to apply to the licence of the Storage Unit.
NOTICE
38. Notice will usually be given by email or SMS, or otherwise will be left at, or posted to, or faxed to the address of the Storer. In relation to the giving of Notice by the Storer to the FO, Notice must be in writing and actually be received to be valid, and the FO may specify a required method. In the event of not being able to contact the Storer, Notice is deemed to have been given to the Storer by the FO if the FO has sent Notice to the last notified address or has sent Notice via any other contact method, including by SMS or email to the Storer or the ACP without any electronic ‘bounce back’ or similar notification. In the event that there is more than one Storer, Notice to or by any single Storer is agreed to be sufficient for the purposes of any Notice requirement under this Agreement
PPSR (PERSONAL PROPERTIES SECURITIES REGISTER)
39. Contracting Out of PPSA Enforcement: If Chapter 4 of the PPSA does apply to the enforcement of a Security Interest arising under or in connection with this Agreement, the Storer agrees the following provisions of the PPSA will not apply to the enforcement of that Security Interest:
(i) section 95 (notice of removal of accession), to the extent that it requires the FO to give the Storer a notice;

(vii) subsection 132(4) (statement of account if no disposal);
(viii) section 142 (redemption of collateral);
(ix) section 143 (reinstatement of security agreement).
i. This clause does not apply where the Storer is using the Goods predominantly for personal, domestic or household purposes.
40. Controllers: Where a person is a controller in relation to the Storage Unit, the parties agree that Part 4 of the PPSA will not apply to the enforcement of any Security Interest in the Storage Unit by that controller.
41. PPSA Notices: Notices or documents required or permitted to be given to the FO for the purposes of the PPSA must be given in accordance with the PPSA.
42. Registration on PPSR: The Storer consents to the FO effecting a registration on the PPSR (in any manner the FO considers appropriate) in relation to any Security Interest arising under or in connection with this Agreement and the Storer agrees to provide all assistance reasonably required by the FO to facilitate this.
43. Verification Certificate: The Storer waives its right to receive any notice under the PPSA (including notice of a verification statement) unless the notice is required by the PPSA and cannot be excluded.
44. Proceeds and Security Agreement: The Storer acknowledges that if the FO’s interest under this Agreement is a Security Interest for the purposes of the PPSA: that Security Interest relates to the Goods and all Proceeds of any kind; and this Agreement is a security agreement for the purposes of the PPSA.

6. (a) Notwithstanding clause 23,and subject to clause 6 (b), the Storer acknowledges that, in the event of the Storage Fee, or any other moneys owing under this Agreement, not being paid in full within 42 days of the due date, the FO may enter the Space, by force or otherwise, retain the Deposit and/or sell or dispose of any Goods in the Space on such terms that the FO may determine (“Default Action”). For the purposes of the Personal Property Securities Act 2009, the FO is deemed to be in possession of the Goods from the moment the FO accesses the Space. The Storer consents to and authorises the sale or disposal of all Goods regardless of their nature or value. The FO may also require payment of Default Action costs, including any costs associated with accessing the Storer’s Space and disposal or sale of the Storer’s Goods. Any excess funds will be returned to the Storer within 6 months of the sale of goods. In the event that the Storer cannot be located, excess funds will be deposited with the Public Trustee or equivalent authority. In the event that the Storer has more than one Space with the FO, default on either Space authorises the FO to take Default Action against all Spaces.
(b) At least 14 days before the FO can take any Default Action the FO will provide the Storer with Notice that the Storer is in Default. The FO will provide the Storer with reasonable time to rectify the Default before any Default Action is taken.
c) If the FO reasonably believes it is a health and safety risk to conduct an inventory of Goods in the Space, subject to the FO providing the Storer with reasonable prior notice to pay outstanding moneys and collect the goods, the FO may dispose of some or all of the Goods without undertaking an inventory. Further, due to the inherent health and safety risks in relation to undertaking any sale or disposal of Goods whereby the FO must handle the Storer’s Goods, the FO need not open or empty bags or boxes to undertake an inventory or assess the contents therein, and may elect to instead dispose of all bagged and/or boxed items without opening them.
RIGHT TO DUMP:
7. If, in the reasonable opinion of the FO, a defaulting Storer’s Goods are either not saleable, fail to sell when offered for sale, may pose a health risk to staff or the public if handled, or are not of sufficient value to warrant the expense of attempting to sell, the FO may dispose of all Goods in the Storer’s Space by any means.
8. Further, upon Termination of the Agreement (Clause 23) by either the Storer or the FO, in the event that a Storer fails to remove all Goods from their Space or the Facility the FO is authorised to dispose of all Goods by any means 7 days from the Termination Date, regardless of the nature or value of the Goods. The FO will give 7 days’ notice of intended disposal.
9. Any items deemed left, in the FO’s reasonable opinion, unattended in common areas or outside the Storer’s Space at any time may at the FO’s reasonable discretion be sold, disposed, moved or dumped immediately and at the expense and liability of the Storer.
