Self storage Pretoria businesses, much like other cities in South Africa, employ stringent rules with regards to this. They dictate what you can and can’t store in your self storage unit. Although we would hope that most people generally grasp that self storage is for furniture storage, car storage, business document storage etc.. We thought it appropriate to clarify here, so the Storage Panda facilities can avoid having to.

Self Storage Pretoria: What You Can’t Store In PTA & Other SA Cities

Animals Or Plants.

This again, goes without saying. No live animals in a storage unit. Apart from being outright cruel, for both animal and plant. Storing either, will attract insects and vermin.


This includes, both the living and the dead. One cannot live in a self storage unit, unfortunately. Maybe have an office there, if the facility permits. It is also not the best place to dump a body. It’s frowned upon actually.

Illegal & Stolen Goods.

Rather do not set up your breaking badesque laboratory in a storage unit. You will probably be caught, and you will probably go to jail for a very very long time.

Perishables, Like Food.

Only canned goods can be stored in the unit. Anything else will likely bring in vermin, odour and some serious health code violations.

Guns, Ammunition & Explosives.

Self Storage Pretoria: Hazardous Material Prohibited

Very few storage facilities allow the storage of guns and ammunition. The storage of explosives is completely prohibited. The risk for destruction of property, and loss of life, is to great.

Flammable & Hazardous Materials.

Not only could it result in damage to property, but also has potential to cause serious health issues. Causing a fire could result in heavy legal action against the tenant.

The Panda hopes that this has helped. For more useful storage tips, be sure to check out Self Storage Johannesburg, Self Storage Cape Town, Storage Cape TownSelf Storage DurbanSelf Storage Pretoria and Storage Pretoria.
