If You Could Use Some Extra Space, Self-Storage is For You

Admit it. Most Filipinos are pack rats. They hold on to stuff, unable or unwilling to let go, and let clutter take over their homes. In fact, a typical Filipino household most likely resembles a “bodega,” bursting at the seams not only with things that you need but also with things you’re better off consigning to the dustbin.

From broken old lampshades to ovens and toasters that no longer work, from dog-eared books and documents to a cache of precious memorabilia.

Thankfully, if you are averse to disposing clutter or are simply petrified by the task, you will be glad to know that there is a new concept called “self-storage,” wherein storage spaces or units are rented out to residential customers or small-to-medium business owners who could use the extra space.

Is your house undergoing renovation? Are you moving to a compact condo that has no room for your heirloom sofa, sports equipment, and boxes of Yuletide décor? Do you need to free up space for a new baby or a relative that’s moving in? Or are you simply downsizing and reorganizing your home?

You can turn to Loc&Stor 24/7, a world-class self-storage facility that provides a secure, convenient, and professionally-run facility for storing your belongings on a short- or long-term basis.

Loc&Stor 24/7 offers units ranging from 1.5-square-meter lockers that can fit eight balikbayan boxes to 18-square-meter jumbo-size units that can accommodate the contents of a 40-foot container.

The concept is different from warehousing, which provides limited security and fire protection for your possessions, co-mingles client’s items, limits access, charges for movement in and out, and may well tie you down to a long-term contract.

Every storage unit has individual alarms, and renters use their own personal locks to ensure privacy. Once you have set up an account, you will use a user-defined PIN to access the facility. Your PIN arms and disarms your unit’s alarm, and all access to your unit is electronically logged. The system will even notify you through e-mail whenever your unit is opened without authorization.

Smoke detectors, fire alarms, and sprinkler systems have been installed throughout the facility, which was built according to stringent fire and floor-loading codes.

Loc&Stor 24/7 also offers climate-controlled areas where humidity is regulated—perfect for storing goods that are temperature-sensitive like leather goods, antique documents, books, artworks, winter clothing, shoes, and more.
