Rent a cheap storage space in Berlin
Why rent a storage space?
An additional storage area is, in situations of lack of space, a great help. Urban areas like Berlin are becoming more and more popular. Inflows from abroad as well as national influx, are driving population figures upwards year over year, and the space in the city is becoming smaller. Not only privately, when it comes to storage spaces, but also commercially, when an external warehouse becomes a practical space extension. Files and documents are better stored in a dry, locked storage compartment, than in a damp cellar or a dusty attic.
Below you can read more about different ways of using a storage space in Berlin or another city.
Types of storage spaces
Storage areas are very flexible and can therefore be used for different purposes. In principle you can store everything. You can rent a warehouse from one month to an indefinite period. There is usually no commitment period, so a storage compartment can also function as an intermediate storage area. Here is an overview:
An interim storage facility is needed in many situations. During a relocation or a staying abroad, personal belongings can be stored safely and comfortably, for a short period of time. Also, with a home exchange or with a subletting of your dwelling, an intermediate storage is very useful for keeping furniture, decoration or other articles, which you don't want to be used by strangers.
Seasonal storage spaces
A lot of people need to store Christmas decorations during summer and bicycles during the winter. This is very practical. Car tyres, leisure equipment, decoration, clothing etc. are things which are only needed during a certain season. To create more space at home, such belongings can be conveniently stored outside the apartment for a while.
Permanent storage is the type of a storage, that you need to be used an entire year, or over several years. This is primarily about extending the living space. If there is simply not enough storage space available in your house or apartment, and moving to a larger apartment is not an option, an external warehouse is the ideal alternative.
Storage for business and commerce
Business customers can also find many advantages when renting a storage space, especially in cities like Berlin. It doesn't matter whether as intermediate storage, seasonal storage or a permanent storage. During the winter months, restaurants and hotels can conveniently store their garden furniture in a storage compartment. Especially taking into account that small locations in the city center are often very narrow and offer too little space for storing furniture.
Law firms and other offices are also often too small, to accommodate all files and documents that must be retained over a long period of time. There are many documents that are not used every day but must be stored properly and be available upon request by the Ministry of Finance, for example. You will find a brief overview and valuable tips on this topic in our article about File storage in Germany.
