Sotogrande Storage

If you are lucky enough to own property in Sotogrande, the largest privately owned residential development in Andalusia, you will no doubt require storage facilities when buying, selling, renting or decluttering.

Self-contained storage units near Sotogrande are perfect for storing everything from a house full of personal goods to sports equipment, boats, cars and valuables.

Situated in the municipality of San Roque, Cadiz in southern Spain, Sotogrande is home to some of Spain’s most influential families. The countryside around the town is made up of cork forests, green fairways and hills overlooking the Mediterranean with views to Gibraltar.

Sotogrande boasts some of the most expensive real estate in Spain and is also home to five golf courses, including the world famous Valderrama. Sotogrande Marina offers a wide choice of bars, restaurants and cafes plus a sailing school. The marina also offers a boat taxi in the summer months.

The River Guadiaro and Estuary is a natural area of 27 hectares which has been designated a National Park Wildlife and Nature Reserve, popular with bird-spotters who come to see the migratory birds on route to Africa.

While property prices have dropped in most towns and cities of the Costa del Sol, those in Sotogrande have remained the same or increased which is largely due to the financial status of the residents.

If you are looking for storage units near Sotogrande choose a company which offers different sized units so you only pay for the space you need. Many storage facilities on the Costa del Sol charge a set price per container, so you end up paying more than you should.

Use a company that offers flexible storage solutions so you can add to or remove your storage without paying extra and without giving prior notice. You should have your own key to your storage unit so you are assured nobody else can tamper with your goods.

A reputable storage company on the Costa del Sol should also sell a full range of packing materials, boxes, mattress covers and tape so that you will have peace of mind knowing your goods are safe and protected from dirt, dust, damp and damage.

You should look around the premises and ask as many questions as you deem necessary before agreeing to book your storage in. Make sure you are fully insured against fire, theft and flooding and always read the small print before signing the contract.

Storage units can be booked either short term or long term and are the perfect solution if you are moving house, renting or downsizing. You may need a place to store your goods for just a month or long term for a year or more.
