Self storage, a solution for everyone in Belgium

how self storage works

Whether they’re tenants or homeowners, more and more people are finding it difficult to manage their personal or business spaces. Self storage is the affordable and flexible solution to store a few items, archive business documents or store most of your possessions in a safe place for a few weeks, months or years.

What are the advantages of self storage?

At Lokabox, self storage contracts can be terminated with a very short period of notice. You’ll need to pay your rental fees for the first month upfront, and if you're a business user, you’ll need to pay a deposit. We don’t ask you to pay to access your storage space, unlike traditional storage spaces that often charge you for visits and require advance notification when you need to access the items you’ve stored.

Self storage is also a secure solution for your storage needs. You and the people authorised by you will be the only ones who can access the storage unit that you hire. You’ll be the only person holding the key, although you can generally appoint additional key holders if you wish. You’ll be asked to provide your own locking device for your space (one can find one in our store), which provides you with an additional security guarantee. What’s more, Lokabox self storage facilities also have their own security measures, which include security cameras and alarm systems.

What is self storage exactly?

Self storage offers personal and business users a storage solution that they can manage themselves. It allows you to rent an individual space where you can store your personal items in purpose-built premises. This solution is particularly suitable for people and companies that don’t want to put up with the strict rules imposed by removal companies or the big storage companies which only offer limited access, no flexibility, long-term contracts and high rates.

Whether you need a space as small as a cupboard, or on the contrary, a space large enough to store the entire contents of your home, self storage allows you to find a space that suits you and offers you maximum flexibility of use. The self storage space that you will rent is self-contained and fully closed, and its size will vary according to your specific needs.

How does self storage work?

In contrast with traditional storage methods, self storage allows you to access your space free of charge, every day between 06.00 and 22.00. This means that you can easily access the items you’ve stored, but also that it’s easy to remove items from the warehouse and swap them with others, without any waiting time and without any additional fees. What’s more, in contrast with traditional storage methods, you know that your self storage unit will stay in the same place and that your items will not be moved by the warehouse provider without your consent.

If you’re considering using self storage, the first difference you’ll note is that you’re responsible for transporting your belongings to the self storage centre, for storing them in your individual space and finally, for removing them. This allows you to arrange your storage space in the way that best suits you, so that you can quickly access your items without having to remove everything from your storage unit. Our centres sell packing material for your move in order to simplify and centralise the process.
