2. Storage City

Storage City is another self-storage facility that offers a range of storage units, so this means they accommodate small or big amounts of items. Their smallest unit is a mini pod (11 sq ft) while their largest is a 20 ft container which can contain up to 50 boxes.
Meanwhile, what’s unique about Storage City is that they also lease offices and commercial units aside from their storage containers.
Moreover, they even offer an outdoor storage yard/compound for vehicles, including trucks. In addition, Storage City is equipped with a forklift which is priced on an hourly basis.
Storage City’s website also features a size chart to help its customers gauge their storage sizes. They provide 7-day access and week-to-week rentals, which is great if you only need temporary storage.
And if you want to move out, Storage City requires a 7-day notice.
In terms of security, they’re equipped with 24-hour CCTV monitoring, electronic gate access, as well as pest control on site.
One downside is that we didn’t find any mention of discounts such as for long-term leases, prepayment, etc.

4. Bigbluebox self-storage
|ADDRESS||The Burgery, Dungarvan, Co Waterford|
|CONTACT DETAILS||087 2455186 |
|OPERATING HOURS||7:00 am to 11:00 pm (Monday – Sunday)|
Located on the N25 Cork-Waterford Road, Bigbluebox self-storage offers 20 ft x 8 ft x 8.5 ft or 160 sq ft shipping containers for €150 a month.
In terms of security, these containers are double locked and monitored 24/7. It’s completely dry and free of vermin and other hazards, so storing fragile material such as paper is also possible.
You can’t access your things 24/7, but you may do so all week long, between 7:00 am to 11:00 pm. And if you need help with moving your things, Bigbluebox can provide assistance by referring you to their recommended mover.
On the other hand, as you may have noticed, this storage facility is only limited to 160 sq ft shipping containers. Hence, to get your money’s worth, you’ll need to store a huge amount of stuff.
Thus, they’re most probably ideal for business clients who need to store multiple boxes of documents, equipment, and such.
As proof of Bigbluebox self-storage’s claims, the clients below comment positively on the security of their storage units:
“Thanks Tom for being so helpful to us when we used BigBluebox Storage in Dungarvan. Almost the full contents of our house was in the unit for 4 full months, the unit was totally airtight and secure, it was A1. Well done and I would highly recommend it. Very happy customers. Go raibh míle maith agat👏👏” -Siobhan Harrison
“Great facility to store anything. Clean and dry and very secure. Owner very helpful. No issues with extending time of box. Overall very happy with service.” -Frances Stafford
|ADDRESS||Unit 6A, Six Cross Roads Business Park, Waterford, X91 VX70|
Unit 10 Kilcohan Industrial Park, Kilcohan, Co. Waterford, X91 PF66
Ballindud Business Park, Ballindud, Co. Waterford, X91 Y971
You can easily find Rent-A-Box in the county as they’ve got multiple storage facilities across Waterford, specifically in Six Cross Roads, Kilcohan, and Ballindud. Their Six Cross Roads branch, in particular, is just 5 minutes from Waterford City
And because their storage units are accessible 24/7, there’s no need to worry about opening/closing hours. You can get your things at your own convenience.
They offer 20 ft x 8 ft x 8 ft containers, and based on the pictures on their website, Rent-A-Box’s storage facilities look pretty neat. The units are checked daily and secured with a padded lock.
There’s also CCTV monitoring, but if you’re really concerned about security, their Kilcohan facility is more secure as it’s located indoors, according to them.
Nevertheless, as we mentioned earlier, Rent-A-Box only offers 20 ft containers, so your storage options are very limited. And in terms of money perks, they didn’t mention any discount offers such as for long-term leases and so on.
Customer Katie Kavanagh had a good experience with Rent-A-Box. Check out her full comment below:
“We went traveling for a year and needed somewhere to store out belongings. Rent A Box made it really easy to signup and move all out stuff in. Rent A Box felt safe and secure, the space was super clean and the 24 hour access meant it was easy to get to when we got back.” -Katie Kavanagh
Tips for Selecting a Self-storage Facility
If this is your first time storing your belongings in a self-storage unit, you’ve got to take note of some things:
Not all self-storage companies offer the same minimum rental period. For some, this could be 1 month, and for others, this could be 2 weeks or less.
So, this would depend on your needs. If you only need temporary storage, you might not get your money’s worth if the self-storage facility’s minimum rental period is way longer than the time you need to store your things.
Another vital point to consider is security, especially if you’re storing company equipment, important documents, and other items of value.
How secure is the storage facility? Are there CCTVs in place? If so, are they operational 24/7? What about other security features such as smoke detectors, fire alarms, pest control, etc.?
Storage size options
Again, this is not something that’s uniform across different self-storage facilities. Some have a variety of storage sizes while others only offer shipping containers (as you may have noticed from our featured choices).
That’s why it’s a good idea to check out several self-storage facilities. There may be one offering a storage unit that’s better suited to your belongings.
Don’t forget accessibility! This refers to how often you can access your belongings. Does the company provide 24/7 access? Or are you only allowed to get your things during their operating hours?
And if they offer an option to access your things 24/7, inquire if this requires higher fees.
Moreover, consider the storage unit’s location. If you need to access your things a lot, then pick a self-storage facility that’s not too far from your residence, along the road, and so on.
Some self-storage facilities offer a variety of discounts. For instance, if you’re leasing their storage unit for a long time, they can give this to you at lower rates.
Or perhaps if you pay in advance, that may also earn you some discounts.
In any case, ask about their discounts and special offers to see if you’re a candidate for any.
