Service Membership

Service Membership is for those that currently own or operate a business which is complementary to the self storage industry.

The Self Storage Association of Australasia was founded in 1990 by a small group of facility operators interested in fostering the development of the self storage industry on a sound ethical and professional basis. It has now grown into a strong and professional industry body representing over 850 members across Australia and New Zealand.

The SSAA provides members a wide range of diverse business tools that are relevant to the self storage industry. This helps members achieve their business goals and assists the profitability of their businesses.

SSAA members keep up-to-date with current industry activities and events through industry specific publications, an annual convention, member communications, seminars, training, educational and informative materials for self storage owners, operators, managers, staff and suppliers.

Our Commitment

  • To provide effective communication, education and training materials to members.
  • To assist members to maximise the return on their investment in the industry.
  • To strengthen the position of the Self Storage Industry as the provider of storage space.
  • To strengthen the position of the SSAA within the self storage industry.
  • To achieve recognition of the SSAA as an effective self regulator.
