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.
At XtraSpace, we often have specials that can give you a few free months or a discounted monthly rate. Keep an eye on our specials page or our Facebook page to stay in the loop. You can also contact your nearest XtraSpace branch directly to enquire what specials they currently have.
