Great Customer Reviews, Beyond Just Customer Service

From the customer reviews on Google, Spaceship, unlike the other customer reviews of the other storage companies (which focus a lot on customer service), has a lot of comments on the convenience of an end-to-end service, the high quality moving service provided, and the coordination from pre-move, to the day of the move to storage.

Reviews that extend beyond the basic 'helpful, polite, professional customer service', now that should be the benchmark for quality service. Read the reviews

Spaceship Customer Review

“Such professional services rendered by these guys here. Job is so well done very wonderfully. I shall declare (that) Spaceship is the most efficient one-storage service. From packing to picking up to moving to retrieval of boxes after storage, they even send it (your items) to you at your own convenience. What else should we ask from them? Everything seems enough and they made the impossibles POSSIBLE. My salutes to the guys who help in the services, especially to the ones who carried out all the hard work - the understanding delivery guys. They were awesome during their services yesterday - Friendly, helpful & polite. Everything was according to schedule. Love Spaceship!

#2: Extra Space Asia Storage Facilities in Singapore

Extra Space is one of the largest self-storage operators in Asia. Founded in 2007, Extra Space has 74 facilities across Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Japan, with over 1.5 million square feet of storage space. In Singapore, Extra Space has 11 self-storage locations.

Well Reputed Storage Operator

Chances are, you would have seen their storage facilities. Big storage buildings painted blue and red, with the Extra Space logo. Their growth over the years is a testament to the good storage service they provide to their customers

Great Customer Service

Extra Space has a very high number of Google Reviews. I counted. 2,150 reviews across their 17 storage locations, with a score of no less than 4.8 / 5. Well done. From their reviews, the common phrases used are "good customer service", "salespeople who explain well", and "professional and patient".

Parking at the Storage Facility

For those who will be driving to/from the storage facilities to access their items, parking is typically a consideration. Extra Space's facilities have ample parking lots, and parking is mostly free. For transport trucks, ample space has been allocated for loading/unloading.

 

Extra Space Prices in Singapore For Storage Space

Extra Space storage prices are typically benchmarked against the overall industry. They are neither the cheapest nor the most expensive. Fair price. Occasionally, they run good discounts, and you might snag a good deal.

#3: Work Plus Store Storage Service in Singapore

Work+Store was launched in 2015 and has 6 storage facilities in Singapore Today. They have continuously innovated and offered more value-added services to their customers than most of the other self-storage companies.

Clean & Vibrant Storage Environment

We visited 3 of Work+Store's storage locations. Overall, the facilities are well-lit, well maintained and clean. There is some vibrancy and it doesn't feel like a typical dull industrial self-storage facility.

Good for Business Storage & E-Commerce Fulfillment

Each facility has a shared communal workspace. There are free-to-use areas with packing tables that are set up for sellers to pack their online & offline orders. As a seller, you can choose a smaller unit and use the communal area for fulfilling orders - effectively saving on monthly fees. Free extra space!

Storage Units With Individual Wall-mounted AC

Work+Store has a storage option of storage units with individual air-con that are activated with motion sensors. While most typical storage facilities are decently ventilated, once you start physically moving items, you'll soon be battling against heat and perspiration. Having an in-room AC is a huge plus.

 

Work+Store Storage Prices in Singapore (Feb 2024)

Work+store units are competitively priced. They also have good discounts for long-term storage. For example, they recently ran a promotion in Sep 2023, where new customers get 2 months free for a commitment period of 12 months.

Unlike Extra Space and Storhub, Work+store allows their users to enjoy the discounts, without mandating that prepayments are required. This helps you save on your initial cash outlay. 

Location Size Monthly Fee (After discount)
Ang Mo Kio (Self Storage) 145 sqft S$ 510.00

Work+Store Customer Reviews

We have rented a space here. This place is amazing - clean space, covered utilities, well-maintained corridors and bright warehouse space. Our entire viewing experience was elevated by Sheryl, who gave us very detailed information on each of the spaces that she showed us. They have accommodated our needs and made our transition to this warehouse with much ease. Prices are reasonable and there are some professional services which are available at this warehouse if you are okay to fork out a bit more!

#4: Storhub Storage Facilities in Singapore

Storhub is the OG of self-storage in Singapore, with its first facility launched in 2003! Today, Storhub is the largest storage operator in Singapore with 18 storage facilities across the island. Just like Extra Space, you'll easily notice their storage buildings - large buildings painted in orange and blue.

Good Parking

Parking is mostly free at Storhub's various locations. There are ample parking lots, so this makes parking convenient. 

Individual Alarms For Enhanced Security

Apart from the standard security setup that all self-storage facilities have, Storhub has also invested in individual alarms for each storage unit. If your unit gets broken into, an alarm will sound.

Large Storage Facility

Storhub's storage facilities are huge. Large buildings that are mostly entirely for self-storage. There are loading bays, large-sized cargo lifts, and decent-sized walkways between units to shift goods in and out. 

 

Storhub Storage Prices in Singapore For Storage Space

As the largest storage operator, Storhub's storage prices are relatively competitive. Like other storage operators, Storhub usually has monthly promotions that benefit customers who want to commit for a fixed duration and are willing to make upfront prepayments. An example of a promotion will be "free 1 month of storage with 3 months of prepayment"

Location Storage Size Monthly Fee (after discount)
Kallang 68 sqft $367.70
Tampines 75 sqft $380.04

Full List Of All The Storage Companies We Reviewed

FWIW, here is the full list of the other storage companies that we researched but didn't make it to the top 4:

 

Choose a Storage Company that is GST registered

Now, companies in Singapore can choose to be GST registered. However, once you get to SGD 1 million a year in revenue, it is mandatory for the company to be GST registered. 

It is best to choose a storage company that is reputable, and of a certain size in revenue. A higher revenue means that there are more customers using the storage service of that storage company - proof points. 

A storage company that is not GST registered typically means they are of a smaller scale, or are just starting out (hopefully not under-declaring their revenues!). Operationally, things may not be so well run yet. And there are many other risks. 

 

Avoid Storage Services Provided by Moving Companies

We chose not to review storage provided by moving companies.

Generally, moving companies offer storage services to complement their moving service. However, unlike typical self-storage companies, moving companies do not have storage facilities with the basic storage requirements (clean, well-ventilated, secured).

Moving companies typically charge storage by the amount of space used in the vehicle. On a like-for-like comparison of sqft of space used, Moving Companies' storage prices are cheaper than Storage Companies.

The ugly side is that when your items are brought to their storage area, they will stack your items to as high as they can, to save the amount of space used. This is dangerous and the risk of your items being damaged is high

Moving companies may offer cheaper storage than storage companies, but the type of storage they provide is different. 

If the price is cheap, there must be a trade-off somewhere.

Additionally, if you want to have a couple of items returned to you, the moving companies will typically not provide this service. You'll have to wait till you want all your items returned back.

How to tell if the moving company is masking itself as a storage company?

1. The company is not GST-registered

2. Names of the owners and employees are hard to find online

3. Offer storage service without doing an inventory of your items, and offer an in/out service without any partial item retrieval

4. Terms of use of service are not available online and/or are extremely vague

 

Frequently Asked Questions on Storage Space in Singapore

Finding storage for your items is actually pretty easy. If this is your first time, you might be unfamiliar and have a bunch of questions.

 

How much does storage cost?

Storage prices vary based on location, size of the unit, and the length of duration you want to store for. For a simple benchmark, storage fees would typically be around $380 to $450 for 100 sqft of storage space.

 

Cheapest storage in Singapore?

Issn't storage all the same? Shouldn't I choose the cheapest option?

We do not recommend taking up storage with Moving Companies. Your items are stacked to as high as possible so that the Moving company can save on space, but you'll still be charged for the 'space you used'. Security is lacking, and very often items are damaged or have gone missing.

"Cheapest in Singapore, 30-40% cheaper"

Run away if you see a company advertising this! You'll always be able to find alternatives at either low or similar prices. It's deception - false marketing.

Choosing the cheapest option often means there's a hidden trade-off somewhere. Even if the reviews seem okay, take extra care. We know of instances where customers were threatened or were compensated to remove negative reviews.

Unless you're planning to store items like construction materials, (or onions), we highly recommend that you choose a storage company that is well-reputed. 

 

Differences between a traditional warehouse and Self Storage

A lot! Traditional warehouses offer long-term space, with commitment periods starting from 1 year. The size of space is typically larger, from 1,000 sqft onwards. The warehouse is typically bare, you might not even have power points. You'll usually need to open an account with a power utilities provider. The only form of security - door locks.

Self Storage, on the other hand, is smaller in size. You can rent a self storage unit from as short as a month, to a longer commitment period - more flexibility for you. Lights, utilities, power, and surveillance cameras are all in place.

At Spaceship's micro-urban fulfilment, Wi-Fi, equipment (trolleys, pallet jacks, roller cage trolleys), communal spaces, pest control are provided, and more.

Renting a Self Storage unit will of course be more expensive on a per sqft basis, probably at least 2-3x. However, the flexibility of the commitment term, and the move-in ready condition, fully justifies the higher price. In fact, it is common to find storage facilities being more than 90% occupied, and you might even have to queue to get a storage unit of the size you want.

 

Self Storage or Door-to-Door Storage

There are two main types of storage options: Self Storage and Door-to-Door Storage

Self Storage provides a dedicated space to store your items. You rent a storage unit and move your items in (on your own). Units are available in a range of sizes. The storage facility usually has 24/7 CCTV surveillance, and access is restricted to existing customers with access codes or access passes.

You'll have a lot of freedom and flexibility in how you want to store your items. But you'll have to manage the move-in, and move-out process yourself. To retrieve items in storage, you'll need to travel to the storage facility and do the heavy lifting.

Door-to-door storage is a convenient storage alternative. The storage provider manages the pickup, delivery and return. In cases where you do not want to pack your item, the company will do it for you. You won't have to visit the storage facility in person. 

The items stored will be inventoried, and you can manage/retrieve your items by logging into your online account. 

Some moving companies have branded themselves as door-to-door storage companies and have marketed themselves to be the cheapest in the industry. 30-40% cheaper. 

But these guys are playing the dirty game of quoting you a larger space than what you actually use, or are stacking your items very high up that it is extremely risky, while still charging you for space that you thought you were allocated.

 

Are storage companies secure?

Yes, reputed Self Storage companies and reputed Door-to-Door storage companies generally have security measures in place including 24/7 CCTV, restricted access by access code only, and fire sprinklers.

However, not all follow industry standards. You'll have to do extra research to ensure that the storage operator you choose has at least the basic requirements.
