Common Misconceptions of Self Storage


We are often approached by our new customers and visitors to our facilities who tell us that they had no idea that self storage was like this or who are surprised by how different Stor-Age is to their expectations. We’ve come up with the five most common misconceptions about self storage so you know exactly what to expect when you next step into a Stor-Age facility.

Only Long term Storage Is Allowed

Many people think that when storing their stuff that they will be required to sign a long term contract and that they will have to use the product for a minimum of 6 months. At Stor-Age this isn’t the case, we have month to month contracts that only require that you give notice 15 days before the end of the month that you intend to vacate. This makes us the perfect option for when you’re moving home or you are renovating.

That There Are Strict Sizes

A common misconception is that there are only one or two sized units that you can store in and that it’s a matter of fitting your stuff into a unit. Stor-Age have a variety of unit sizes that mean that you can find the perfect sized unit for your stuff, after all why pay for more space than you need? With a range of sizes from 3m2 up to in excess of 30m2 there is bound to be a perfectly sized space for you.

Storage Facilities Are Dirty

The usual perception of a self storage facility is that it is a dusty dirty place that is barely maintained. Stor-Age facilities are run to strict standards and are always in tip top shape. We do our best to make sure that our facilities are as good looking as the customers that make use of

Far Away from Home

When people think of storage facilities, they usually think of a warehouse on the outskirts of town, near the airport or on a plot. With 35 facilities situated across six major South African cities, there’s a Stor-Age facility near you. Best of all, they’re conveniently located so that you don’t have to go far to get to your safely stored things.

Access By Appointment Only

What could be more frustrating than having to make an appointment to get access to stored goods that belong to you? With access to facilities between 07h00 and 19h00, Stor-Age make sure that you can drop by just about any time. All you need is your entry tag and the key to the lock on your unit, it’s as easy as that!
