Are you looking for a safe and reliable storage space for your luggage and other items? If so, why not consider luggage storage in self-storage facilities like Extra Space Asia Self-Storage in Korea? Here are three reasons why:


1. Flexible storage duration

If you’re unsure how long you need to store your luggage, a self-storage facility can offer you greater flexibility than most luggage storage providers, which typically charge a daily or hourly rate.

Extra Space Asia Self-Storage offers both short-term and long-term storage options, from as little as 14 days to if you need. If you’re uncertain about your storage duration, you can start with a shorter plan and extend it as needed. After which, if you need to store longer, you can just pay monthly or call the Customer Service Executive to understand the next best approach.

One thing to note is that some mini-storage facilities might provide you with a better discount plan if you are storing for a longer period. This will be a cost-saving approach if you decide to store for an extended period. Thus, it is always good to check in advance to understand more.


2. Wide range of storage sizes

If you’re storing more than one piece of luggage, or other furniture and boxes, a self-storage facility is a better option than a luggage storage center, which may have fixed dimensions and rates that could cost more if your items are classified as oversized. If you are planning to store more than one piece of luggage and other furniture pieces and boxes? It will be a better option to choose a mini storage facility instead.

At Extra Space Asia, you can choose from a range of storage sizes to fit your needs, and you can upsize or downsize your storage unit as required, from 7 sqft to 199 sqft.


3. Safe and secure storage environment

Most luggage storage centers are located at transportation hubs like airports and train stations, where there is high human traffic flow. If you need to repack your items, you may need to be cautious as the center may not be able to provide you with additional boxes or packing materials at the last minute.

Extra Space Asia, on the other hand, provides a safe and secure storage environment for your items. All our facilities are with 24/7 CCTV monitoring, advanced PIN-code access and control systems, and on-site security personnel. Each storage unit has its own security system, and on-site customer service is available during operating hours for quick assistance. Additionally, you can purchase packing materials such as tapes and boxes at the Box Shop located in the facility. With 24/7 storage access, you can store and retrieve your items at any time, any day.

If you’d like to learn more, you can contact Extra Space Asia Self-Storage at +82 1899 8708 or drop by our climate-controlled storage facilities during our operating hours from Monday to Saturday, 9am to 6pm, for personalised storage facility tour.

Calling all university students who need extra space! Renting a self-storage unit could be the perfect storage solution for you. There are several reasons why students might need a storage unit during their university life.

Let’s explore the top 3 reasons:

  1. Going home during the school holiday break

During university term breaks, some schools require students to vacate their dorm rooms or off-campus housing. Renting another apartment just for storage can be costly and inconvenient.

For these cases, self-storage is a great storage alternative for these university students to temporarily store their personal items instead of transporting them back to their homes during the university term break period.

Facilities like Extra Space Asia Self-Storage, the facilities are fully equipped with 24-hour CCTV and personal pin code access. These security features will ensure that students’ valuable items are well-protected and accessible at any time.

  1. Outgrowing your dorm or home space

University accommodations are often on the smaller side, especially in space-constrained countries. With limited living and shared spaces, students may find it challenging to keep an organized living area. Thus, the idea of renting a self-storage unit is great as they can enjoy more space to store items such as their seasonal clothing, luggage, books, and even other personal items.

For students who are studying around Yongsan and Yeongdeungpo, they can always find various self-storage providers near their school area. As such, it is important to do some research besides enquiring only about the storage rental cost. Research should include whether the storage provider offers both short-term and long-term duration storage rental and what storage sizes are available, and if there are any university student perks.

Extra Space Asia Self-Storage offers flexible storage plans, allowing students to rent for as short as 14 days to as long as they need, with locker units suitable for luggage and boxes.

  1. Starting a business

For university students, besides studying, some might explore side businesses for extra income and experience. However, their dorm space might be insufficient, hindering their business operations. Renting a self-storage unit near the university or accessible public transportation areas can be a practical solution.

Extra Space Asia Self-Storage provides 24-hour access and fully air-conditioned storage areas, creating a comfortable environment for students to store and retrieve their items, even on hot or cold days.

For those seeking flexible storage options that allow for upsizing or downsizing based on their evolving needs, consider renting a storage unit at Extra Space Asia Self-Storage. They offer a wide range of storage sizes for both your personal and business storage needs, along with flexible storage terms. To learn more about their storage offerings, feel free to contact them at +82 1899 8708 or send them a Kakaotalk at 엑스트라 스페이스 아시아.

Nine months might seem like a long time, especially when you are expecting a new life. During this period, we understand that it can be stressful as you deal with this major transition, and part of the change is finding ways to prepare your home for the baby.

For new parents, you might be overwhelmed by what to get, and different parents will have different priorities. Thus, it is important to take your time to deal with one task at a time. Here are some things you can try to prep your home for the arrival of your little one.


  1. Prepare a baby room with the essentials

It would be good if you have a room for the baby so that you will have ample space to move around and also for your baby to sleep and play over time. You can start by checking the big ticket items such as baby cots/cribs, car seats, strollers, baby carriers, sanitisers, baby monitor, diapers, baby bath items, baby bottles and baby clothes. To extend the shelf life of the items, you can opt to purchase items that are more functional so that you can use them even as your baby grows.

For the baby’s essentials, you can also place them around your home instead of just one location so that you do not have to rush to the baby’s room whenever you need something. This will save you time and also the strength to move around. 


  1. Babyproof your home

Take a careful look around your home for things that need baby-proofing. This can include moving your cleaning products and placing them on higher grounds. You would also need to find ways to secure your cabinets and doors that your baby can reach.

Next, avoid long curtains and hide your cables and cover the electrical supplies. Babies are naturally curious, and their hands might start to grab things within their reach. Thus, it is important to keep these items and cords out of the way so that they will not harm your baby as they crawl and move around your home. The act of baby-proofing can differ for every family, and it is up to the parents to prepare accordingly as every home layout is different too.


  1. Try to declutter and clean up your home

With the baby’s arrival, it might take a while for you to get used to it as you will have to cater to your baby’s needs first. This is why it is recommended to declutter and clean up your home first when you can. You can start by decluttering some parts of your home that will be a shared space for your baby and you. This will include your living room, bedroom etc.


If you have furniture sets, personal collections or even seasonal décor items and clothing that you do not wish to throw but lack the storage space at home, consider renting a self-storage unit near your home. This way, you can enjoy more space for your growing family by renting a storage space. With a new family member, it does not mean that you will have to give up your personal collection. You can always continue growing your personal collection with the help of an extra storage unit.

Renting a self-storage unit can be a great storage solution if you are planning to relocate, renovate, or even downsize your home. One common item that most people store in their storage unit is furniture pieces. As we all know, our storage rental is calculated based on the storage square feet that we rent. Thus, to maximise your storage unit space efficiently, you should also consider how to better store your furniture in your storage unit to save some rental costs too. Here are three tips on how to store furniture in your storage unit.

  1. Disassemble your furniture as much as you can

Whether you plan to store your furniture items temporarily or long-term, it is good to disassemble them as much as possible. By segmenting each piece into its parts, you will maximise storage space while making transportation easier when moving from one location to another.

In terms of storage, you should try to store them flat to free up storage space. For items such as your bed frame and shelving, you should have them nearer to your storage unit’s walls. Like Tetris, it is not about stuffing your storage unit but how you arrange your items in an optimal manner. For items that you plan to retrieve a particular item after a short period of time, you should also try to arrange them near your storage door so that you can retrieve them easily.

  1. Utilise your storage unit’s vertical space

To save costs, you should try to find ways to utilise your storage unit’s vertical space as much as you can. For storage rental, prices are usually determined based on the length and width of your storage unit. Thus, you should try to maximise your vertical space before renting another bigger storage unit, as that will incur more storage rental too.

Adding a shelf to your storage unit is a good tool to effectively make your storage look more organised and space efficient. You can just set up some shelving in one part of your storage unit so that you can place those smaller items and any odd shape furniture pieces on the shelving so that it is easier to store and retrieve them. On the other side of your storage unit, you can stack similar-sized boxes upwards.

  1. Properly wrap your furniture items

Keeping any items or furniture pieces for a long period of time will definitely lead to dust accumulation. Thus, it is always important to wrap your furniture items, such as your bed and sofa set with stretch film. Stretch films are a good packing material that helps to keep your furniture intact and also makes transportation and storage much easier. If you are planning to store fragile items like your television set, mirror, glass table top or any glass items, it is also good to layer your items with bubble wrap as it will serve as a cushion during your storage process and if you accidentally drop them. These packing materials will also protect your furniture from any scratches and dents during the moving and storing process.

If you are in need of any packing materials like boxes, and even bubble wraps, you can always purchase them from Extra Space Asia Self Storage’s box shop at the storage facility.

By storing at Extra Space Asia, you can also enjoy the flexibility of upsizing or downsizing your storage unit at any time to fit your storage unit. This will help to save money over time as you will not be paying for the storage space that you do not need.

Prolonged periods of not using your bicycle can lead to certain parts showing signs of rust or even degradation. As such, before you store your bicycle, it is advisable to take the time to prepare it for storage so that it will remain ready when you return for it.

Here are four storage tips you can use to get your bike ready for storage!

Clean Hydration Items and Remove All Electronics

The first step in preparing your bicycle for storage is to remove everything that is not part of your bicycle’s frame or moving parts.

These items include bicycle bottles, ride computers, and the speedometer. Electronics, including safety lights, should be stored separately to minimise changes or damage to the interior circuitry.

At the same time, remember to clean the hydration system if you use a hydration pack. You can use a solution of vinegar and water before rinsing it thoroughly with hot water. While storing your bottles and bladder, ensure that the caps are removed.

Clean and Inspect your Bicycle

After removing the electronics from your bicycle, it is time to clean and inspect your bicycle.

While giving your bicycle a light spray of water is always encouraged, it will be better if you can also use a soft-bristle brush to remove any dried mud and dislodge dirt from hard-to-reach areas. Once that is done, lightly use a rag to dust off the remaining dirt from your bicycle frame, saddle, grips, and wheels.

To clean the chain, start by wrapping the chain up with a clean, lint-free cloth and, as you backpedal, allow the chain to move through the cloth. Repeat this process a few times until the rag remains mostly clean.

While cleaning, remember to inspect the bicycle for any signs of damage, wear or tear.

Inflate the Tires and Lubricate the Cables and Chains

Once your bicycle is cleaned, you will need to inflate your tire to the right PSI so that the weight of your bicycle does not rest directly on the rims and damage the rims in the process. Furthermore, having air in your tire prevents weak spots from developing in your bicycle tire’s sidewall, prolonging the durability of the tire.

Remember to lubricate your shifting cables, braking cables, and bicycle chain. This step will ensure that rust does not set in during the storage period and help your chain move smoothly when you start riding again.

Use a Cover during Storage

While this is not mandatory, storing your bicycle under covers will prevent excess dust from collecting on your bicycle in your storage unit. Furthermore, it will be good to suspend your bicycle from the wall using a hook to ensure that the weight of the bicycle does not rest on the tires.

Planning to relocate back to your hometown or another country for work? Relocating is one of the most stressful things, even for those who do it regularly. Thus, self-storage might be a useful tool for most expats to try.

Here are three benefits of self-storage to expect:

Safe and secure extra storage space

The idea of self-storage will come in handy for expats who have moved from a bigger home to a much smaller home but still have many pieces of furniture or boxes that would not fit into the current home. They can start to rent a self-storage unit first to store those items that do not fit in their homes during this transition period.

By storing your items in a mini storage facility such as Extra Space Asia Self-Storage, you will be provided a unique Pincode to access the air-conditioned storage area. For added protection, only the storer has access to the storage unit. Even our Customer Service Executives do not hold any keys to the lock on the storage unit.

Flexible storage duration

In cases where you are planning to relocate soon, the storage space becomes a safe and secure choice for storing your personal items and furniture. It is a good transition space where you can store your items first until the relocation details are finalised for the transporter company to move everything to your new location.

For mini storage providers such as Extra Space Asia Self-Storage, expats will also have the choice of storing from as short as 14 days to as long they require. There is no fixed storage contract to adhere to. If you require more time to settle your relocation arrangements, simply extend the storage duration by speaking to the Customer Service Executive directly.

Cost-effective storage solution

Compared to continuing the property rental for a prolonged period, which can be expensive in Hong Kong, expats can save more by storing their personal items at a self-storage facility that offers a more flexible storage plan and duration to fit their storage needs. You will be glad to know that you only need to pay for the storage size you rent, some administration fees and insurance coverage.

Did you also know that if you plan to store for a longer time period, there might also be more storage rental discounts that can bring about more cost savings down the road? Thus, it is important to always check in with the various mini storage providers to check out the latest promotions that best cater to your needs.

Winter clothes are clothing that we only use daily if we are living in a winter country with low temperatures all the time. As they are bulky, they occupy a lot of useful space in our wardrobe or spare room. Here are some winter clothes storage hacks to try out today!

Prepare winter clothes before storing

Wash and dry clothes

Before you start your storage process, it is important to ensure that all winter wear is properly washed and dried. It is key to ensure that your winter clothing is completely dried before storing it, as you want to avoid finding mouldy clothes when you need them the next time. It is also important to check if your clothes can be machine washed or needs to be sent for dry cleaning.

Fold or hang your winter wear

The general rule would be to fold your lightweight clothes, such as knit wears and thermal wears, compared to using a hanger to hang them as it will change their shapes and hang the heavier items, such as your winter coats, so that they will stay in shape for a long time.

How to store your winter clothes

Use vacuum-sealed bags

Use vacuum-sealed bags for a start as they will help to shrink the size of these think clothing to a fraction of the original size. By vacuum-sealing your clothes, storing and stacking your vacuum bags in your wardrobe would be much easier. These bags can also prevent moisture from entering the clothes and are helpful against odour and insects/pests. You can easily purchase these vacuum-sealed bags online or in most home stores.

Store in plastic containers with lids

Plastic containers are a good storage idea, too, as they keep your winter wear safe from humidity, mould and bugs. Using plastic storage containers, you can quickly see each box’s content and label them by categories such as hats, jackets, heat techs, etc.

For family storage wise, you can also adopt the idea of storing the winter wear by names so that they can easily grab and go when the time arises instead of looking through each category and ensuring that the size is correct.

Store in a self-storage facility to save closet space

Storing your winter clothes will help keep your wardrobe clutter-free, but only some are blessed with ample storage space. In such cases, you can rent a self-storage unit where you can choose either a locker size or a walk-in unit size, depending on the storage space you need. If you have many items to store besides your thick winter clothes, you can rent a walk-in unit.

For those new to the idea of self-storage, you can try self-storage providers such as Extra Space Asia Self-Storage, which offers a wide range of storage sizes at various locations. With a 24/7 air-conditioned and dehumidified storage environment, your items will be in safe hands, especially those temperature-sensitive items. If you have more storage questions, you can also reach out by calling 1899 8708 or even visit the storage facilities from Monday to Saturday, 9 am to 6 pm, to see it for yourself!
