If you live in or near desirable holiday destinations in South Africa, you can cash in by renting your home to holiday makers.
Seaside residences like those in Hermanus, Plettenberg Bay, Cintsa or Umhlanga demand four figure daily rates. Family homes located near attractions like the Kruger National Park and South Africa’s premier golf estates are equally sought after.
No quick fix for onsite storage
A major detraction is that you’ll have to clear your entire home of personal items, valuables and rare or expensive antiques to accommodate paying guests. Holiday rental arrangements usually include the use of the entire property, including the garage, so there’s no quick fix in terms of onsite storage.
Flexible self-storage units
Affordable self-locking, self-storage units are the ideal solution. A range of unit sizes, typically ranging from 3 to 33 square metres, are available, so you won’t end up paying for more space than you need, and state of the art security measures are in place to protect your valuables.
Self-storage companies typically offer short-term leases, making self-storage units perfect for summer holiday storage. You won’t be locked into costly, long-term commitments that can eat into your holiday rental profits.
Optional services to expedite the self-storage process
Self-storage companies may offer optional services that simplify the process of storing your goods. For example, they may provide packaging materials and the use of a domestic courier service to transport your goods to and from the self-storage facility. It’s a good idea to investigate the services on offer before choosing a self-storage company – these services are invaluable for keeping your stress levels down!
