Lock-up Garages for Rent – Locations across South Africa

lock up garages for rent

Self-storage units that are roughly the size of a single garage are ideal for storing bulky furniture and other household contents. They’re also an easy size to visualise, so you know how much space you’re working with.


XtraSpace has storage the size of a lock-up garage at locations throughout South Africa.


XtraSpace lock-up garages

Most XtraSpace branches offer lock-up garages for rent. Sizes vary slightly, but they’re all similar to a standard single or double garage. They have a wide roll-up door for easy access.


We offer indoor and outdoor garage-style units depending on the location. All our branches have 24-hour security with CCTV monitoring, access control and alarms.


Other benefits of renting a lock-up garage from XtraSpace include:

  • clean and dry units
  • branches nationwide
  • packing supplies available on-site
  • business centres with internet access
  • trolleys for easy loading.

How renting a lock-up garage works

We offer flexible contract terms when renting a lock-up garage, including month-to-month options that can be cancelled with 30 days’ notice.


As a customer, you have exclusive access to your unit. The unit is secured with a lock you provide, and only you have the key.


It’s possible to change unit size if your storage needs change, depending on availability.


What you can fit in a garage-style unit

XtraSpace offers a range of units. Our garage-style storage units range from 9 m2 to 16 m2. We also have units about the size of a double garage that offer about 30 m2.


If you’re not sure how much space you need, here are examples of the contents that can fit into our units:

  • 9 m2 – a single office or bedroom
  • 12 m2 – a one-bedroom apartment (all furniture and boxes of belongings)
  • 16 m2 – a three-bedroom house (all patio furniture and plenty of boxes)
  • 33 m2 – a four- or five-bedroom house (all furniture, patio furniture and shed contents).

Vehicle storage bays

Our garage-style storage units may be able to fit a vehicle, but they’re not always suitable for car or vehicle storage.


Many of our XtraSpace branches have separate vehicle-storage bays for cars, trucks, bakkies, caravans and boats.


These bays are secure and can be hired for both short- and long-term vehicle storage.
