Selfstorage in Munich
Selfstorage means storing stuff by yourself in specially built facilities, which are lockable, protected from sight and safe. The trend comes from the US, where it´s been common since the 60s to sublet the garages as storage places. Selfstorage is getting more popular in Germany as well. Although the density of the available storage space per capita is relatively small in Germany (0,006m² per capita in comparison to 0,060m² in the UK), the selfstorage market is growing at around 10% rate per year. The reasons are the rising housing and rental costs as well as the population growth. Around 10,000 people move to Munich per month according to the official statistics – the capital city of Bavaria is a center of various industries, media and is also very popular among students. Munich also considered as the single capital city of Germany and single need obviously more space.
Today Munich is considered as one of the most expensive cities in Germany. The apartment prices are constantly rising, doubling in value in Munich over the last 7 years. Also, the prices in the suburban Munich areas increase, which make the living almost impossible for a lot of people. The real estate experts suggest further densification and construction extensions, to make use of existing space. The outcome: the already scarce storage space decreases even more due to the building of lofts in the attics and renting out the basements. This creates a high demand for the selfstorage in Munich.
There is a pretty wide array of selfstorage offers in Munich: on the one hand there are box-collecting services like Box-Concept, which might be quite expensive and inflexible due to the pickup arrangements, and on the other hand there are regular selfstorage providers such as Sirius Self-Storage, Lager-Land and LagerWelt. These majority of these providers are located on the outskirts or in suburban areas to stay cost-efficient, which means subpar accessibility due to longer travelling times. MyPlace is the biggest player on market with 6 sites in Munich. Although even MyPlace has its locations in the outer districts of Munich. The opening hours are restricted and online booking is not possible. Many providers display weekly prices, which means a total of 13 “months” or debit periods (52/4) in a year. The services may vary as well from provider to provider. We suggest calculating a monthly price for 1 square meter as well as identifying the own storage area demand. The rule is: you´ll need ca. 1 m² for 10 m² living space. We also recommend asking for special prices and rebates, as many selfstorage providers offer special deals at the opening or for new customers, such as 1 month for free.
