The selfstorage concept in Mainz


On the following page we give a short overview about selfstorage. Living space in cities is becoming more and more overcrowded and people more and more. The selfstorage concept is ideal for creating more space. We also provide information on the current European selfstorage market and introduce the 21st century selfstorage provider - Storebox - your storage next door.

What is Selfstorage?

"Self storage (a shorthand for "self-service storage", and also known as "mini storage") is an industry in which storage space (such as rooms, lockers, containers, and/or outdoor space), also known as storage units is rented to tenants, usually on a short-term basis (often month-to-month). Self-storage tenants include businesses and individuals"

The storage of items by private individuals or corporate customers sounds very simple at first glance, but there are some differences between the various providers to consider. The location, service, security, storage conditions and flexibility should be taken into account.

Selfstorage is the possibility to enlarge your own four walls easily and without much effort, because the constant urbanization in the cities automatically leads to less available living space. However, personal belongings are not reduced by this development and require a safe place to store them.

A rental warehouse can be very helpful as a short-term, temporary warehouse during a relocation or subletting, for example. But a storage compartment is also ideal as a long-term living space extension for car tyres, decoration, sports equipment, etc.
