There are many different reasons why you may need to store your belongings in Bangkok, and if this is something that you need to do you may not be aware of the options that are available to you. If you are looking for short term, or long term storage solutions, then here are some options that you may wish to consider enabling you to store your possessions safely and securely, until you are ready to collect them again.
How Much Do You Have To Store?
One of the first things that you will need to do before looking at storage solutions, is to work out how much space you are going to need to store everything safely. If you have a couple of small boxes or a suitcase to store, then this is much easier than if you have to store the contents of your house or condo. Work out how much you have that needs storing, and then you can look at the available storage options that are open to you.
Expensive Airport Storage
One option that you may wish to consider is storing your items at the airport, which has plenty of storage facilities available for travellers and residents alike. Although this option is convenient, especially if you are travelling through the airport anyway, it is also an expensive option if you are looking for something long term. However, other alternatives are open to you as well.
Self Storage Companies
When you are looking for a locker for rent, Bangkok has many self-storage companies that you suit your requirements, and it will also be considerably cheaper than using the airport facilities. A quick search using the internet will show all the companies offering this service, and you can compare the prices they charge against each other, although you will find that they are similar. When looking at the different companies and comparing the prices, also look at their locations as you will want to choose somewhere that is close to you, saving you having to travel too far.
Ask For A Favour
Another alternative that you may have available to you if you do not have too much to store and it will not be for too long, is asking a favour of friends, colleagues, or family. If they have the space to store your possessions for a short time it can save you a lot of money, even if you buy them an expensive gift as way of saying thank you. However, when imposing on people l=in this way, you will want to tell them the timeline and make sure that you stick to it, as you may end up falling out if they are left to look after your things for too long.
