BEAM storage is one of the other valet storage start up that's based in Singapore besides Spaceship. Valet storage is a relatively new concept in Asia where professional movers picks up your storage items and store them in a remote warehouse and returns it when you need it.

Why use Valet Storage?

Both Beam and Spaceship storage provides millennials convenience and simplifies storage for people who have recently relocated and don't know the country well. Here are the 3Cs for the birth of valet storage:

  • Convenient
  • Cost effective
  • Concise

Convenient

Get your items at the comfort of your own home. A delivery man will pick up and return your items to your preferred location. As Singapore is compact geographically, both Spaceship and Beam storage delivers islandwide with some surcharges for more inaccessible area like Sentosa Island.

Cost-effective

The main reason why valet storage providers like Beam and Spaceship storage are able to beat the prices at self-storage is because a lot of cost savings is achieved through not having to build partitions for storage units. In addition, money is not spent on installing finger recognition locks, therefore the cost savings can be passed onto consumers. Lastly, as compared to self-storage units, valet storage warehousesare usually located in remote areas where the area per square feet is cheaper, therefore, for BEAM and Spaceship, you're paying convenience in terms of saving time and effort as movers pick up and store for you instead of space. Oh speaking of space, Beam and Spaceship only charges you for space that you use and not space that your items are contained in.

Concise

Do you like to know what items you have a glance? Spaceship and Beam storage does too. Therefore, they ensure that you have an online catalogue via an app or desktop of what you have kept in storage. Unlike self-storage units, where the occupant is required to self manage the unit and the items stored in it. You save time looking for things that you need and you know precisely if the item you're looking for is stored with Spaceship or Beam even without going down to the stuffy warehouse and rummaging through the items.

Beam Space VS Spaceship storage

What's the difference between the two valet storage and how should you choose?

Price

If you have loose items and is looking to store your items in standard boxes, both start ups offer a box plan where you can keep, store and protect your items with their durable boxes.
Beam Space plan starts from $8 per month while Spaceship's box plan starts at $6 per month, Spaceship saves you $10 per month for every 5 boxes. Spaceships's return delivery is slightly more expensive at $25 per trip while Beam Space charges $16 per trip. Through our experience for customers that store for 6 months, an average of 2 return trips are requested through their storage period. That works out to be $230* ($180 storage + $50 delivery) for Spaceship and $272* ($240 storage + $32 delivery) for Beam Space, effectively saving you 18% for a 6 month storage term.
