Being a victim of domestic violence is not something anyone can easily forget and move on from mentally but physically they can move away to start a new beginning. This is why a unique partnership was developed in Australia in order to help those who are planning to have an easier transition and move on without thinking about other matters.
Mobile storage in Sydney is not a cheap service thus the partnership between Supercheap Storage which is based in Brisbane and DVConnect, an organization devoted to help against domestic violence, aims to help victims as they move. They will be offering free moves as well as storage as part of their trial period.
Stephen Voss, the general manager of Supercheap Storage, shared that the concept was brought into light by Chris James who is the franchisee of the storage company located in north Brisbane. James’ family used to help victims of families who have been subjected to domestic violence.
Voss said that James has a background in the situation since he grew up witnessing his parents as they help children who are caught in the unfortunate scene. The mobile storage in Sydney decided to discuss with DVConnect about a possible partnership since they are still on the trial stage of the offer.
DVConnect and Supercheap Storage will be working hand in hand as they check people who should be given priority especially those who require urgent attention. DVConnect will be providing two of their staff to do the removal process. Voss explained that people will approach them regarding their case, check on what they will be able to do before booking and then the process will start from there.
Once the trial is over, Voss is planning to make this initiative a long-term one because they desire to continuously helpdomestic violence victims. They are also planning to open the service to all the franchise of Supercheap Storage located all over the country.
Dianne Mangan of DVConnect shared that it is common for victims who have escaped to have no access to mobile storage in Sydney where they can store their belongings and they don’t have enough funds to pay for a removalist or even the storage.
