Loc&Stor 24/7: Storing your belongings world class!
Are you a hoarder who finds letting go of things with sentimental value to be difficult?
Are you thinking where to keep your children’s old toys?
Do your excess belongings eat up too much space at your home? Or you simply have no idea where to put them?
At the office…
Do you have too many documents and files but the building is lacking in storage area?
Will there be a shipment of seasonal stocks or packaging materials?
Are you having delivery issues with warehouses?
If your answers to these questions is a resounding YES, well then! What you are looking for is self-storage!
Self-storage (shorthand for “self-service storage”) is an industry in which storage space (such as rooms, lockers, containers, and/or outdoor space), also known as “storage units” is rented to tenants, usually on a short-term basis (often month-to-month). Self-storage tenants include businesses and individuals. (Source: Wikipedia)
An industry that started in America in the 1960’s, the self-storage industry has since reached other parts of the world like Europe, Australia and Asia. In Asia, self-storage started in the 2000’s, where Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore became pioneers, then followed by China, Malaysia and Taiwan. As Thailand and the Philippines embrace the concept of self -storage, the need for a more secure, convenient and professionally operated warehouse arises.
Now on its third facility under construction in Makati, Loc&Stor 24/7 aims to achieve this direction, providing Filipinos a truly world-class storage offering.
Whether you’re an individual or a business owner seeking a self-storage provider, here is why your belongings are safe and secure at Loc&Stor 24/7:
Grounded on a strategic location
Loc&Stor 24/7’s first facility is along C5 in Pasig City, which is conveniently located close to Manila’s main business and residential areas. The guarded, gated compound has been said to be flood-free for decades.
The facility is open 24/7, so potential customers can come at any time. However, office hours where business transactions can be made are from Monday to Saturday, 9:00am to 6:00pm.
A high-quality facility
Built to strict fire and floor-loading codes, Loc&Stor 24/7’s facility has extensive smoke detectors and sprinkler systems installed all throughout. Also, for goods and possessions sensitive to temperature and humidity such as antique documents, paintings, books, leather goods, winter clothing and shoes, it has climate-controlled areas where humidity is regulated.
Cutting-edge security measures
To maximize the protection of the storers’ possessions, Loc&Stor 24/7 hires guards from a leading security agency to do round-the-clock safety. Add to it the Closed Circuit TV (CCTV) cameras with night vision that monitor and record all activities within and around the facility. Also, the lighting and security systems are backed up by generator systems to protect against a security outage. Their multi-layered security system allows the customers to use their PIN to access the facility and arm and disarm their unit’s alarm. Through the user-defined PIN, all access to the unit is electronically logged.
To complete their protection measures, Loc&Stor 24/7 also offers an insurance plan which is custom-made for the storer’s needs.
Different storage unit types and sizes at affordable prices
Loc&Stor 24/7 offers two types of a storage unit: the standard climate unit, which is not air-conditioned; and the climate controlled unit, which is air-conditioned for possessions that are heat and/or humidity sensitive.
Loc&Stor 24/7 offers units ranging from 1) locker (1.2m X 1.2m) that could fit 8 balikbayan boxes 2) small (1.5m X 1.5m) or about the size of a large closet 3) medium or about the size of a large elevator 4) large which could fit 60 balikbayan boxes 5) X large 6) XX large and 7) Jumbo which is already half of a sea shipping container.
Loc&Stor 24/7 is concerned about potential mold or mildew growing in its clients’ properties, that’s why the relative humidity (RH) of its facility is kept to less than 60%.
