The concept behind Pattaya Self Storage is simple: You store it, you lock it, you keep the key. But there is more than a catchphrase behind this modern self-storage operator.
Located in Thappraya Soi 13, Pattaya Self Storage is easily found thanks to the large PSS sign. The facility maintains 24-hour security and is open half the day for customers. The facilities were designed to ensure that customer belongings are kept in the same condition as when originally placed into storage.

The concept is the brainchild of Jan Olan Aamlid, managing director of the PSS. Jan spotted a niche in the market when many of his friends would leave their suitcases with him as they returned to their home countries. He visited other storage facilities across SE Asia and incorporated the best of what he’d witnessed, and opened the business in October 2013.
Self-storage serves many needs. For some, it’s a place to securely keep personal and business documents, such as land titles, insurance certificates, deeds, legal contracts or birth certificates. For others, it’s a place to put home furnishings while a new house is being prepared or while traveling for extended periods. For a few, it’s simply a place to keep all the extra stuff they’ve collected.
PSS requires no fixed time contract. Customers can rent as long as they want. Rent is paid in advance, usually monthly, although yearly contracts are available. Even these contracts can be canceled without penalty at any time.
Services also cover everything from packaging supplies, size estimation and transport. Belongings can be discreetly and conveniently stored in deposit boxes, saving them from theft, loss or natural disasters. Safe deposit boxes are kept within a vault, ensuring they are kept safe and protected against life’s unexpected surprises.

Storage units come in a wide variety of sizes, from simple mailboxes at 1,200 baht per year to 1.3 sq. meter walk-in lockers for 22,680 baht a year, or 2,100 baht a month. Other options include deposit boxes in three sizes, ranging in price from 4,000-8,000 baht a month; Lockers from 500-2,100 baht per month and drop boxes up to 15 sq. meters on the ground floor.
Access to boxes and lockers is available from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Customers keep the key and all rooms are secured with fingerprint-scanner locks, preventing even PSS staff from accessing them. The deposit-box’s vault has a floor, ceiling and walls constructed to ensure security and viewing rooms are private.
But PSS is more than about storing stuff. The company also rents studio, one- and two-bedroom units as well as office space.
