Self Storage Gisborne is a family owned company, opened by Peter and Sylvia in 2006 with just 20 units in Disraeli Street. As demand grew, another facility was opened at Makaraka, with the company now having over 305 storage units and leasing out over 50 shipping containers. Peter and Sylvia  strongly believe in providing exceptional customer care, and providing a professional service, second to none.

Polly started with the company in June 2015, having had previous experience managing a national retail store in Gisborne. Polly shares the company ethos of providing customers with exceptional customer care, and has a high level of integrity. Often people come into her office stressed out with decisions around moving, where to store, how much space needed. Polly's empathy and professionalism take a huge weight off their shoulders and makes moving, what is undeniably a stressful business, a whole lot easier.
