  1. Flexible storage terms

Unlike big warehouse storage and office leases where you are locked in for a specific rental duration of one year or more, the rental duration of a storage unit is more flexible. For self-storage companies like Extra Space Asia, customers can choose to store from as short as 14 days to as long as needed. In this case, businesses do not have to worry about long-term operation costs or the need to break the fixed rental contract just to downsize the business.

Besides the flexible storage duration, customers are also able to downsize or upsize their storage unit anytime. If your business needs more inventory to keep up with the growing demand, you can just let our Customer Service Executives know, and we will find you the next suitable storage unit to fit all your extra inventory. If your business is moving slower than usual and you need more cash flow, you can also downsize your storage unit and pay for only the storage space you require. These flexible storage terms will be beneficial to SMEs and e-commerce businesses.
