If you are thinking of where to chuck that 15-foot tall Christmas tree after the season’s merry making is over, fret not.
CapitaLand has formed a joint venture with Hersing Corporation Ltd to bring you StorHub Self Storage in Singapore. As the name implies, it runs on a ‘Do-It-Yourself’ concept – simply bring your things, hire a space of your choice, move in immediately and lock it up with your own padlock. Voila! De-cluttering your home has never been easier.
Enjoy a hassle-free storage experience at your own convenience
With a choice of 88 different unit sizes to suit your requirements, you will only be paying for what you really need; as opposed to conventional storage solutions with lesser size options. Monthly rates range from just S$64 for its smallest space of eight square feet to S$3,382 for its biggest 1,308 square feet. No long-term commitment is necessary because StorHub offers the flexibility of monthly or yearly rental.
State-of-the-art security system ensures a highly secure environment
The spanking facilities should banish any pre-conceived ideas of old, dingy warehouses. One need not even worry about security because StorHub employs state-of-the-art security features such as biometric fingerprint access at main entrances and 24-hour CCTV, on top of your personal padlocks. StorHub also provides free insurance against fire and burglary of up to $15,000 so that you can have peace of mind.
Welcome to the Self-Storage Revolution
StorHub Self Storage started in 2003 as the pioneer of the local self-storage industry. Since opening its first facility in Changi, it has steadily found its footing in the local market. Today, it has five facilities spread across Changi, Toa Payoh and Kallang, and one more outlet would be opened in Tampines to offer about 1,500 units of space for rent.
Each location has its own merits; for instance, the Toa Payoh facility appeals to homeowners due to its proximity to the Mass Rapid Transit, whilst the Changi facility boasts drive-up units which offers added convenience for customers when accessing their stores. The largest facility in Kallang, which has over 100,000 square feet of storage space available, is popular with business users as they are able to change their unit size based on their needs.
One Space, Many Uses
Businesses and individuals can take their pick from 88 different unit sizes to suit their needs
In the face of diminishing home and office sizes, coupled with rising comsumerism and increasing property prices, StorHub Self Storage offers the ideal solution for a wide variety of uses
For businesses, it is convenient, cost-effective and flexible since they can upgrade or downgrade the storage room size depending on their space requirements. "We also notice more enquiries from businesses who enquire about using StorHub to store office supplies, documents and inventory," says Chua.
StorHub even provides climate-control rooms, which are popular with customers storing temperature sensitive items.
"Climate control storage is popular with customers who store furniture made of wood, winter clothing as well as paintings as the controlled temperature and humidity prevent items from becoming mouldy," explains Chua. "In addition, the climate control provides a comfortable environment when our customers access their storage room. We set the temperature of our climate control rooms at 24 - 25 degrees Celsius and the humidity control is set at 70 per cent."
With unlimited access, free ample parking space and the availability of delivery service and forklifts for rental, it is truly a hassle-free self-storage experience. But beyond that, StorHub also prides itself on its level of service and responsiveness.
Orla Thornberry, Office Manager of Central Asia Development Group relates her experience at StorHub, “I find the staff at StorHub very friendly, helpful and professional. They are very responsive and quick to provide a solution to any enquiry.”
Safe keep your prized possessions instead of having them cooped up at home
As for individuals, the storage space comes in handy during renovation or house moving, or even when one is posted overseas. For KY Seet, customer of StorHub since 2005, his changing storage needs have been well met by the company. He says, “These (storage solutions) have been provided at reasonable cost and suit my varying budget. StorHub's storage premises are clean, well designed and well equipped with necessary security that ensures my belongings and goods are properly stored and adequately protected.”
For many, StorHub has in fact, become their treasure trove. StorHub's director Jack Chua has seen many individuals turn its spaces into homes for their personal collections. “I've seen a store full of Hello Kitties,' he says. “Another client had rented a 40-square foot space to keep her shoes - turning the store into a makeshift walk-in closet for footwear. Sports cars, too, have found their way into such storage units.”
Needless to say, what you can store is only limited by your imagination. So get started and do a quick sweep to de-clutter your homes in time for 2011, with the help of StorHub!
