Where to find big self-storage units and mini warehousing in South Africa.

Large self-storage units – the size of a garage or bigger – are especially practical for storing a lot of furniture or the contents of an entire household. This may be necessary, for example, during renovations, during a move or if you are studying or working overseas for a limited time.

Large storage units are also a must-have for businesses that need to store a lot of stock or require secure off-site storage for frequent archiving.


XtraSpace offers a range of large self-storage units in Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal and the Western Cape.


Sizes of larger storage units

Anything larger than about 16 square metres is considered a large storage unit.


At XtraSpace Self Storage, our larger storage units start at about 16m2 and go up to 85m2 and more, depending on which branch you utilise.


A 16m2 storage unit is just a little smaller than a single garage.


It can fit the contents of an average one- to two-bedroom home, provided no space is required for garage items or outdoor furniture.

A 33m2 storage unit is closer in size to a double garage and can store the contents of a typical two-bedroom home. This unit size is also ideal for businesses that need to store bulky, non-perishable inventory.


At 45m2 or larger, a storage unit can accommodate the contents of a large family home.


There’s also plenty of space to install shelving at this size, with aisles for easy access to stored inventory or other items.

Mini-warehouse and factory storage spaces

Some XtraSpace branches can offer you even more space with mini-warehousing and factory storage spaces.


Our warehousing spaces range in size from 100 m2 to 2400 m2. Specific branches in Gauteng and Pietermaritzburg offer warehouse storage.


Our mini-factory spaces are larger spaces equipped for light manufacturing. They offer three-phase power points and space for bulk storage. At the moment, these are available in Alberton only.


How much do larger storage units cost?

The cost of self-storage is calculated by square meterage.


When signing a month-to-month lease, your lease is flexible but can have a higher monthly cost. More extended lease periods aren’t as flexible but can bring down your overall monthly fee.
