MyStorage, Ho Chi Minh City’s first self-storage facility, has officially opened to meet the increasing need for “mini storage” in the country.
With Vietnam’s rising economic growth, high urbanisation rates and consequently less space, the need for storage solutions is emerging rapidly in the country. MyStorage takes advantage of this trend and has opened Ho Chi Minh City’s first self storage facility.
The company offers different types of storage to meet the needs of the local population, including private self storage units ranging from 1 to 3.5 cubic meters, private self storage lockers and a warehouse for full service storage. MyStorage also offers free pickup and delivery as well as complementary plastic storage bins when booking the service. In addition, the facility is fully air-conditioned, which is essential in Saigon’s hot and humid environment, highly secure with 24 hour camera surveillance and restricted fingerprint access.
Customers can book the service via the company website mystorage.vn, email or telephone. Staff is able to help customers who speak English, Vietnamese or German.
MyStorage serves business clients as well as consumers with its service. Target groups include the growing Vietnamese middle class, who are becoming more affluent and moving into Vietnam’s mega cities, small businesses who need storage for their inventory or documents, as well as expats who move to or within the city.
“More people move are moving to urban areas such as Saigon or Hanoi and the space in a one or two bedroom apartment is often limited. MyStorage offers these customers a solution to securely store valuable belongings and not have to use their homes as storage space. We believe in the growth of the country and that the modern, digital, urban Vietnamese will develop a need for storage as their peers in New York or Berlin have done.’ Aric Austin, founder and CEO of the company told Vietnam Insider.
MyStorage opened its first facility in Ho Chi Minh City in July 2019 and has plans to expand to further Vietnamese cities in early 2020.
