Secure parking while on a trip

I’m going on a trip shortly and need to park my Prado in Adelaide for about a week while I’m away on a side tour without it. I’m reluctant to simply park it in the street as it contains my camping gear and other items (fridge etc) and on returning, to then find it broken into.

Do anyone have a suggestion as to where I could park my fourbie for a week in Adelaide with reasonable security? I’m sure others have been in the same situation.

Peter,

What about hiring a secure storage shed and leaving your vehicle locked up in the shed??

There should be a few of these in Adelaide.

Cheers Kev

You could try the long term secure parking at Adelaide Airport - about $10 per day

Airport Security Parking on Richmond Road and 10 mins from airport provides undercover parking and is cheaper than airport long term. We use it continuously and do recommend their service.

I'd second that, we've used it before as well.

Hi Mitch,
Palms Rural Self Storage, Callanan Road, Palmerston Ph08-89327800 is the one I use @ $50.00 /pw.

I wouldn't leave anything at the airport and we do not really have secure parking like the "big smoke".


There other self storage units around Darwin / Palmerston.

Hi Peter
In Darwin can help out with security, but sorry, not under cover!
