Self-storage is a service offering flexible, do-it-yourself storage for business and domestic customers.

For access to your storage room, you use a pin code system which is unique to your account. The pin code deactivates the individual alarm on your storage unit. Once you become our customer, you can access your storage room anytime during our opening hours without prior notice.
If you need access to your storage room outside our opening hours, contact the reception of your branch location in advance. The access code remains the same throughout your stay unless you request to change it. The same code is valid outside the regular opening hours, but this must be arranged in advance.
