Who is Self Storage for?
Self Storage is the perfect solution for anyone who wants to create more order and space in their private or business life. Anyone can use Self Storage! Families, couples, singles, students, but also entrepreneurs, sole traders, SMEs or large companies. We show you a few examples of use here:
Self Storage for private individuals
There are numerous reasons for storing things or renting a self-storage compartment:
a) Temporary storage during a move or renovation
If someone is moving into a new flat or house that is not yet fully ready for occupancy, they need temporary space to store furniture. There are many people who use self storage for just that! Or maybe the living room at home is being renovated? To ensure that nothing happens to your favourite furniture and other things during the renovation work, they can be placed in a self-storage compartment. Self storage is an ideal solution, especially for bulky furniture that cannot be stored in other rooms!
b) Long-term storage during a stay abroad
Planning a world trip, sabbatical or expat stay? If someone is going abroad for a few months or years, they don't necessarily take all their belongings with them. Perhaps they will sublet their flat or even give it up altogether. Then they need a storage room. A self-storage unit is a safe and clean solution. By the way: placeB customers can give their relatives or friends access authorisation for a limited time. This allows them to enter the storage room if a stored document or other item is suddenly needed.
c) Long-term use as a cellar
If space is tight, self-storage is a cost-effective alternative to a larger flat. Especially in the age of dense construction, it makes perfect sense to store only what you need on a daily basis within your own four walls. Things that you only use seasonally (sports equipment, Christmas decorations, winter clothes, etc.) can be stored well in a self-storage box nearby. The same goes for collections, hobby equipment or the like. If you rent a storage room as an additional cellar, you should make sure that access is guaranteed at all times. Don't let the spontaneous ski weekend go down the drain because the storage room where the skis are kept is closed.
Self-storage for companies
Not only private individuals can make ideal use of self-storage, but also companies. Business customers use rental storage as an archive to store everything from documents to Christmas lights. Many companies also use self-storage to supplement their own archive selectively, e.g. to compensate for fluctuations in space requirements. In principle, the company's own stock is filled first, but if the space is no longer sufficient, the required space can be rented very flexibly in a self-storage facility. Of course, exactly as much and for exactly as long as necessary. It couldn't be more efficient.
What can you put in a self-storage facility?
No, you can't store your mother-in-law. But you can store almost anything else. The rooms are all dry, clean and secure. They are therefore well suited for storing all kinds of things. As a general rule, you can store anything in most self-storage facilities that you have common sense about. Toxic, explosive, perishable, illegal, living, non-odourless or dangerous goods are not allowed.
