Self-storage facilities offer a secure, clean, dry storage space that residential or commercial users can rent for storing their possessions. It is a system where individuals and businesses rent units of space or containers within a large warehouse for storing possessions. Our self-storage facilities offer flexible rental terms so that you only pay for the period you need.

Boxed Storage has many self-storage facilities that are conveniently located throughout Cork. Each of our facilities is located in close proximity to major transport links and road networks offering great access to customers.

The opening hours of our self-storage units are as follows:
Monday – 8:30 am to 6 pm
Tuesday – 8:30 am to 6 pm
Wednesday – 8:30 am to 6 pm
Thursday – 8:30 am to 6 pm
Friday – 8:30 am to 6 pm
Saturday – 9 am to 2 pm

No, there isn’t any maximum length of period that you can keep your possessions with us. With customer service being our top priority, we are very flexible with the storage period to meet the diverse needs of our clients. We have several customers who have been storing their possessions with us for many years.

Yes, we need prior notice for storage units and offices when you wish to move out. It is essential to notify our reception staff that you have vacated the space so that your contract can be terminated.
On the day prior to your move-in, you will need to sign a license agreement and a storage account will then be set up. Based on the unit size you require, your private storage unit will be pre-allocated. On move-in day, a team member will bring you to your self-storage space, show you how the lifts are operated (in case the unit is not on the ground floor) as well as show you the right loading area.
Your unit will be entirely emptied on the day you move out. A member of our team will meet you at the unit for doing a final check before cancelling your storage contract with us.
Our self-storage facilities operate on a licence agreement which is more like a lease, but better suitable to the nature of the agreement. Every registered self-storage operator will ask you to provide your photo ID (like valid driver’s licence or passport) along with a proof of address (a recent utility bill) for security reasons.
Yes, definitely. We encourage all our new users to drop in at our facility to see the room themselves and learn how self-storage works. You are free to ask any questions that you might have.

No, we do not have any hidden costs. We have transparent policies, meaning you only pay for thee storage that you use.

Nobody can access your storage unit except for you. We feel it’s easier to deal with one person when the matter concerns payment. Moreover, it’s complicated when business partners, couples or two persons share self-storage units and things go wrong between them. Therefore, we prefer one person as the key holder of a storage unit. However, you may still choose to share your access with anyone on condition that you add this to our permission form.
