Selfstorage in Linz

The need for selfstorage

Linz grows: the third biggest Austrian city had 205,291 inhabitants in the beginning of 2018. The population keeps increasing, with an annual growth rate of 8.4%. The population grows, but the room remains the same. Although there are several residential projects which create more living space, the existing space becomes more and more limited. This results in the loss of storage spaces. The demand for selfstorage is also growing, especially because of the modern lifestyle. Linz population is mobile, so people tend to commute a lot and change their place of residence. The times of family houses with almost indefinite storage spaces, are over. The high demand for individual, smart and safe storage solutions is also clear from the high amount of storage providers, which open their shops on a weekly-basis. But there are many differences between these selfstorage providers, when it comes to price, services and features.

The beautiful city on the Danube was chosen the European Capital of Culture in 2009 and has also the title of "City of Media and Arts" of the Creative Cities Network by UNESCO.

Selfstorage in Linz

There are only a few classic selfstorage providers in Linz. MyPlace and Mc-Self Mietlager are some of them. Oftentimes these storage spaces are merely lockable containers or garages on the outskirts of the city (Lager Box Linz, MyLager), which are presented as selfstorage units. The main disadvantages of such storage options, are:

  • suburban location
  • restricted access hours
  • lack of heating

These storing conditions make the container storage conditions unsuitable for storing furniture, art, books or documents. Fluctuations in temperature and humidity inside the container often lead to lacquer cracking, papers being ruined and furniture getting infested with mold. The booking procedure is also very tedious: the availability of a storage compartment can only be checked via phone and you must send multiple documents to book the storage. Inflexible payment options, poor customer service and lack of transparency when it comes to pricing, make the storing your belongings even more complicated, although it should be so easy!
