What is self storage?

Self storage involves rental of closed private spaces for storage of property by individuals and companies who lack room for keeping documents, furniture or other unused but still useful office or household items.

Self storage is the solution that gives you access to a space to leave items while moving, renovating, or away travelling, to store work equipment, to free up space in your garage or even to use for filing.
In a world where space is increasingly at a premium, and where apartments are getting smaller while prices for office-space are on the rise, many find themselves falling back on garages, basements or even rental premises, without realising that not all these options are suitable or secure for storage.

A self-storage solution is a secure, clean and dry private storage facility, provided under flexible conditions and guaranteeing 24/7 surveillance and easy access.
And because we also operate self-storage facilities, we know that the Italian market is booming and that significant growth can be expected in the sector. This is a business that can generate excellent returns of up to 15-20%.
