Our story, briefly toldSpace Time Travel

1997 - 1999

As the first Self-storage provider in Germany, 1997 launched the LAGERBOX Forerunner „Bernheims mini-Warehouse“ with a warehouse in Düsseldorf. A second branch in Düsseldorf and a branch office in Frankfurt, which led Bernheim under the name „Access“, were founded quickly.

2001 - 2003

Four years after the founding of „Bernheims Mini-Lager“ Managing Director Peter N. Blauw comes to the „LAGERBOX“. This laid the foundation for a nationwide rollout of the business model. But soon the name of the LAGERBOX is established for all kinds of self-storage. LAGERBOX, so also the new company name since 2001, is thus generally a trademark term and is synonymous with self-storage, such as tempo for the paper tissue. Under the branding „LAGERBOX – safe, clean, dry“ is now also a shop for supplies to the German LAGERBOX branches, in which customers can get everything they need around storage and moving. From the classic moving box to book crates, packing blankets and bubble wrap to the on-site service of various transport aids such as sack trucks, trolleys and pallet trucks, everything is available. The locations of Düsseldorf 1 and 2 as well as the branch office in Frankfurt will be expanded. For the first time, archiving of files for a large customer is also carried out.

2005 - 2007

Has so far been „Selfstorage“ only to store furniture, for example for private and business customers, the LAGERBOX is now treading a new dimension in the field of service: on the Frankfurt branch, customers of LAGERBOX can, for example, set mailboxes. Since the middle of 2005, it is in particular the private customers who make use of the offers of a LAGERBOX and recognize the advantages: instead of storing in the garage, the belongings are stored safely, cleanly and dry in the LAGERBOX, you can flexibly adjust your demand for storage space and enjoy a comprehensive service package. With this orientation, LAGERBOX continues its path. A milestone is the purchase of the two Devon locations in Berlin-Hohenschönhausen (today Berlin 1) and Cologne-Ossendorf (now Cologne 1), where customers can now also access the proven LAGERBOX concept. Peter N. Blauw takes over all shares in the LAGERBOX and becomes the sole owner of the LAGERBOX Holding GmbH & Co. KG. As a Managing Partner, Peter N. Blauw is active in the business and plans the rapid extension and expansion of the company for the years 2008 and 2009.

2008 - 2010

In October 2008 opened in Cologne the second location in the district of Poll. Four months after the opening of Cologne 2, the first „LAGERBOX“ is in Leverkusen. Another two months later, the Stuttgart branch was also completed. This makes LAGERBOX the first Selfstorage provider in the region at the Neckar. Peter N. Blauw also treads new paths in Berlin. A second branch is founded in Berlin-Neukölln. For the first time in Germany, a LAGERBOX branch is fulfilled on the third and fifth floor of a former department store. The lower floors of the former Hertie branch create a retail center where Aldi and DM, for example, operate their markets or find a branch of H&M. That means: LAGERBOX is always there, where the customers often come by. The first steps in expansion planning are thus fulfilled. At nine locations, customers now find the proven self-storage concept of LAGERBOX. Demand is increasing and some locations are already too small and are being expanded. For example, Cologne 1 receives a surface extension of 5,000 square meters. Enhancements are also archived in 2010 Cologne 2, Stuttgart, Leverkusen and Düsseldorf. In the following months, Frankfurt/M, Berlin 2 and Düsseldorf 1 and 2 were expanded and some were completely reopened. In Essen, LAGERBOX opens the tenth branch after a major renovation.

2012 - 2014

Meanwhile, it is also being built diligently in Germany. The new location in Leipzig was opened in March 2012. The industry Self storage and the need for flexibility rented storage space is growing rapidly. The search for new objects for the expansion runs at full speed. The service continues to expand to meet all areas of the self storage industry. The delivery acceptance by the employees of the individual branches is a good argument to choose Selfstorage. Especially companies are increasingly convinced of the „Selfstorage concept“ and often store parallel in different locations of LAGERBOX. Sales representatives and field staff are looking forward to the space they have acquired in their own 4 walls. The branch in Düsseldorf 2 moves with all customers to a new and larger building in the Königsberger Strasse. The new object is centrally located and has everything the customer desires. The customers in Chemnitz can now also perceive the wide range of storage possibilities. The old warehouse building at Reichstr.1b is being renovated and converted into a new storage facility for LAGERBOX. Self-storage is now also in Chemnitz. At the end of August, Dortmund will open the 13th location of LAGERBOX and also offer a perfect ambiance for the needed storage space in Dortmund and surroundings. This is where the former Coca Cola site in the Kaiserstr. The Dortmund branch is created. At the end of the year in Krefeld, another branch of LAGERBOX will open and with the project „Self-storage in the midst of a shopping center“, the year 2014 complete. As the oldest supplier in Germany, LAGERBOX strives to offer flexible and convenient storage space in all major metropolitan areas. As announced, LAGERBOX opened the locations Dortmund and Krefeld for a short time in a row. In Dortmund, customers not only have flexible storage rooms available for rent, but also parking spaces for their convertibles, sports cars and caravans. The parking spaces are mainly available in our specially designed underground car park and are therefore well protected from hail, storm and thunderstorms. Your treasure on 4 wheels is important to us and is therefore also parked safe from vandalism and theft with us. Lack of public parking spaces and fear of external damage to your expensive hobby was yesterday. For the people in need of storage in Dortmund there is the possibility pulling into the „Drive in area“ and thus partly drive up to their storage unit to fill it. It was a special moment in Krefeld when former Kaufhof building located super central was rented. This location resembles the principle of the location in Berlin-Neukölln to settle in the midst of and between retail companies. With the two new openings in NRW, the LAGERBOX has shown that the market is there and the trend is towards expansion. More locations for Self Storage with LAGERBOX will surely follow in 2015.

2015 - 2018

In Köln-Ossendorf the branch expands its assortment of storage units. On the main floor about 90 new storage spaces in sizes 1 m3 up to 12.5 m2 were built. With the Drive Inn area, customers can almost always pull directly to their storage room. The potential of self-storage in Cologne is great. Because the housing is becoming increasingly scarce and the rental prices have risen. Rent a storage room, store furniture, archive files or rent a basement replacement is possible flexibly in Cologne-Ossendorf. LAGERBOX is building a new hall at the Berlin-Hohenschönhausen location. At a good 2400 m2, distributed over 2 floors, a total of 325 new storage rooms in sizes 1 m3 to 25 m3 were built. Prior to expansion, utilization was almost the 100% mark. After the expansion, the site is again in a position to offer all storage space in need, whether private or commercial, safe, clean and dry storage units. The boom in Self-storage stops. Further stages of development at the locations of Düsseldorf-Lierenfeld, Leipzig, Dortmund and Köln 2 are in the planning phase. LAGERBOX announces the announcement of 2 new self-storage locations in Dresden and Berlin, which are now under roof and compartment. 2016 a total of 3 locations in Hanover and a location in Mannheim are taken over by competitors.

The other site in Dresden will be created at the corner of Hamburger Str. /Bremer Sr. The city center can be reached in only 5 minutes.

This also includes a drive-in area that makes sure that our customers stay dry while loading and unloading. Later in 2019, LAGERBOX purchased an existing property in Pforzheim. Additionally, we opened a LAGERBOX facility in Dresden Pieschen in February 2019. Here, our concept combining self-storage with letting out storage boxes is completely integrated into the Alte Mälzerei shopping centre. Due to the tremendous demand in Dresden Pieschen, we kicked off the next expansion phase much sooner than expected.
