More information

What is a storage unit and how does it work?

The rental of a storage unit allows a solution for different reasons:

  • You must leave your old accommodations but the construction of your new home is not finished
  • You are moving into a smaller space
  • You will settle abroad but you will not be able to move all your furniture
  • You are part of a blended family and you cannot install all your furniture in your new house with said family

 Renting a storage unit has many advantages and offers you a practical solution without the need to move your belongings to a specific location.

The storage of your personal belongings has several steps:

  • Taking a detailed inventory, written by you or if you wish by the expert moving team
  • Loading the container then takes place directly in front of your house, avoiding multiple trips to transport your furniture. The belongings are meticulously wrapped in buffer paper to guarantee their protection during transport
  • Sealing the container with a numbered lead tag, ensuring the inviolability of the content for the duration of the storage

 he advantages of this type of storage is that you avoid a double move, additional costs such as handling costs, as well as the risk of breaking something during the move. All your goods are stored all at once and they do not move before your move into your new home.

Storage unit or self-storage: what is the difference?

Storage in a unit is not to be confused with self-storage.  In a storage unit, your property is stored in a secure warehouse with surveillance cameras, fire detectors or a guard service.  The rental period is flexible, ranging from a few days to several years.

You will not have access to your personal effects for the duration of the storage.  If you want to access your belongings, you must provide an appointment so that the company can make the container accessible.

Self-storage is the rental of a garage or a hangar to store your belongings,  So you have permanent access to it. The drawback of this type of formula is that the price is often higher than the rental of storage unit.

The price of a storage unit is calculated depending on the number of cubic meters per week.  But the entire available surface is used for storing your belongings.  While in a self-storage, you should usually keep space to move around and store your things.
