We are a Launceston family owned business proudly offering professional + personal self-storage solutions.

In August 2002, Mark Gilpin attended an onsite auction at 45 Thistle Street, South Launceston, purely to purchase a set of lockers that he read about in the local newspaper. Ended up he purchased the lockers, and the building they were housed in. The lockers were brought back to the existing business premises after auction, and 8 weeks later returned to 45 Thistle Street, South Launceston. Mark then presented his wife Margaret with a very large, empty building consisting of:

15996M2 (4 acres) undercover, and a total of 4.4 hectares (10 acres) of land!

What a challenge! Where do we start?

Ultimate Storage Solutions was born!


Over the next 12 months Mark worked very hard with a team of tradesmen, mainly after normal business hours to produce and complete area 1. It is now Mark and Margaret’s job to market and fill these areas.


All areas are security monitored with overhead sprinkler systems throughout.
