Self-Storage refers to Self Service Storage, it’s a system where customers rent a space, room, unit or container to keep their possession for a rental fee. The storage and retrieval of stored goods is done on “self-service” basis. Customer rent a space, room, unit or container and are given access to store their goods inside it.
While it’s fairly new in Brunei, the Self-Storage industry is already a booming and growing service industry abroad. There are various companies and organisation providing self-storage service governed by associations such as Self-Storage Association Asia which AEGIS SDS is a member of.
Self-Storage is essentially a unit or space rental with the exception that it’s meant solely for storage purposes. Using the units or space for other purpose may be deemed a breach of contract. Please refer to our terms of service for more information.
There are many benefits in doing so, some of which include;
- Lower likelihood of theft due to security measures in place.
- Cool and dry condition maintained all year around, suitable for keeping most things in good condition.
- Goods are insured by default; additional insurance coverage can be arranged.
- Clean environment; free of pests.
- Easy access; 24/7 availability.
By storing at self-storage facility, you’re transferring some of the risks to the facility provider which in turn lowers risks on the item owners. The associated risks of loss by disasters such as fire and floods and theft are significantly decreased due to security measures and disaster planning in place. The risk of financial losses are further reduced by having insurance coverage on the unit and item stored within.
Normally, self-storage is designed to allow customers freedom to access their units and stored item on self-service basis. However, we can provide logistic services if required at additional charges.
