South Africa's Self Storage Company Opens a New Store in Centurion

Stor-Age, South Africa’s self storage company, has opened its newest store in Centurion. The store is the first to open in Pretoria and extends the Stor-Age store portfolio into four major SA cities – Cape Town, Johannesburg, Bloemfontein and now Pretoria.


According to SASSI (SA Self Storage Investments) although there are 220 self storage facilities at present in South Africa, the market is highly fragmented and often lacking in professionalism. With only several of the industry leading brands owning more than five branches Stor-Age’s success can be attributed to the identification of a gap in the SA market and the adoption of international standards in their approach and roll-out of storage facilities.

Currently with 13 stores trading across the country and a property portfolio of over R500 million Stor-Age has big plans for their move into Pretoria, with Stor-Age Centurion being the first of many more to come.

The move to Pretoria forms part of Stor-Age’s strategy in establishing itself across the country. With further plans in the pipeline to open stores in Durban and PE, Stor-Age is set on becoming a truly national brand.

“Breaking into the Pretoria market has always been a long-term plan for Stor-Age” says Steven Horton, Property Director at Stor-Age. “Although originally a Cape-based company, we are pleased to be strengthening our presence in Gauteng, and particularly in Pretoria, with Stor-Age Centurion.”
