About Us

Who are we?

Stephen and Iming (Peter) have been partners since early 2000. Both share their love of animals, especially dogs and cats. Stephen has a background in cabinet-making, building construction, and in later years, IT project management.

Iming is a qualified librarian and briefly worked for a tertiary institution.  He takes on customer service, administration and accounts roles on the farm.  In his limited spare time, he also works in customer service for a major transport company in Melbourne.


How it started?

Living in Melbourne’s outer eastern suburbs, Stephen and Iming loved going to the bush with friends. Like others, they started camping in tents and soon upgraded to their dream caravan. When looking for a place to park their caravan, they found others faced the same dilemma, forced to store their caravans far from home.

In 2017, the pair stumbled upon a five-acre hobby farm just outside Lara, Victoria. The double-storey home, large boarding cattery, and open space were an instant attraction.  They packed up their home in Melbourne and moved to the farm in the growing northern suburb of Geelong.

The farm boasted a large flat back paddock, perfect as a storage yard for boats and caravans with its close proximity to major roads.

Lara Storage provides hassle-free secured storage to meet customers’ storage needs at a convenient location.

What else are we upto?

Lara Storage is part of a diverse family business of the Rosewood Farm Group. We offer great facilities and services for customers across Geelong and Melbourne.
