Largest self storage facility in Cape Town not just for storage
Stor-Age Gardens is one of our most impressive buildings, with a modern and bold architectural style that stands out proudly in the Cape Town city landscape.
The facility was initially designed to include four fitted floors, a 15-allocation parking bay and two service lifts. In 2016, it underwent an 18 month renovation to add three additional floors, 11 additional parking bays and the activation of two extra service lifts.
Over the years there has been a continuous growth in demand for safe and convenient self storage, from both everyday Capetonians and local businesses. Stor-Age Gardens is a popular choice for SMEs who require self storage in the City Bowl, and those looking to reduce the risk and high cost associated with property rentals.
Comments Kevin Jacobs, Facility Manager at Stor-Age Gardens, “An increasing amount of small business owners are coming to us for flexible self storage solutions as opposed to remotely situated ‘warehouse style’ storage and distribution facilities. Our Gardens facility offers an easily accessible location for clients in the City Bowl, perfectly situated between major access routes, with world-class security.”
There has also been an increase in the number of residents adopting self storage to meet their demands for space. Stor-Age Gardens is helping individuals store a multitude of items, from excess camping gear and seasonal clothing, to household items and sporting goods.
What makes the Gardens facility so popular? In addition to the convenient location, the facility offers secure 24-hour access, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to a variety of insured unit sizes.
Comments Kevin, “We proudly play a part in offering convenient self storage space to smaller role players, affording these individuals and companies the opportunity to grow within their fields of expertise. We have witnessed many incredible stories over the past few years of small ventures now transformed into larger companies, with self storage playing a key role in that growth.”
One such example being a variety of businesses in the broader film industy. The facility has become a ‘home base’ to an ever-growing number of such clients, playing a vital role by offering flexible storage space.
He continues, “The facility never experiences a lull in activity or movement on site. Upon our daily security review of the camera footage, one can see that the flow of traffic is constant. Film crews are constantly enjoying a coffee and packing rigging and props before setting out on respective shoots throughout Cape Town from as early as 2am. Two of South Africa’s most popular energy drink brands are also regularly on site, restocking their branded vehicles in preparation for their events and promotions – there is always something exciting happening.”
Stor-Age Gardens makes a conscientious effort to remain relevant in the life of their customers and community. The facility played an important role in the Santa Shoebox campaign recently, serving as a drop off location for shoeboxes. They were then loaded and transported to the final locations to be distributed to underprivileged children. The facility was also actively involved in the #6BFORME campaign, an initiative launched by Stor-Age to alleviate the pressures of the Cape Town drought. It also serves as a host location for TEDxCapeTown events amongst many other such community endevours.
The facility offers a variety of self storage unit sizes to allow for a wide choice of ‘tailor-made’ spaces. All self storage units are monitored by state-of-the-art security and require the use of electronic access tags to enter.
