At Lokabox, you can rent a storage unit from 3 to 150 m3 according to your needs.

How much does self storage cost at Lokabox? What does it depend on?

I don’t know how long I’ll need a storage unit. Am I bound to a specific period of time?

At Lokabox, your minimum rental period is 1 week, with no long-term commitment. During your rental contract, we will bill you per successive period of 28 days, and you can end your contract whenever you like, with only 15 days’ notice. When you leave, you’ll be refunded for the weeks you didn’t use. So you don’t have to know in advance how long you’ll need your self storage space.

Are my belongings safe?

The security of your belongings is our priority at Lokabox. This is why all our buildings are continuously monitored by cameras, and we have alarms operating outside our opening hours. Only our customers with a valid individual code can access Lokabox facilities. If you would like more information on this matter, please check our security page.
