lock up garages for rent

XtraSpace offers lock-up garages for rent at locations across South Africa.


Self-storage units that are roughly the size of a single garage are ideal for storing bulky items, such as furniture and other household contents, sports equipment and ladders and other tools.


They’re also an easy size to visualise, so you know how much space you have to work with.

How renting a lock-up garage works

We offer flexible contract terms for 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. You secure it with a padlock you provide, and you keep the key.


If your needs change and you need either a smaller or larger storage unit, simply switch to a different unit size (depending on availability).

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.
