Stor-Age Announces the Acquisition of leading Port Elizabeth Self Storage Property
Stor-Age announced today that it will be entering the Port Elizabeth market with the acquisition of Port Elizabeth's leading self storage property. The introduction of Stor-Age to the Port Elizabeth market will see Stor-Age trading in all six of South Africa’s main cities.

The property, to be branded and managed by Stor-Age, was acquired from Rent-A-Store in a private transaction negotiated directly between both parties’ senior management teams. According to Rent-A-Store CEO Andre Toich, the disposal by Rent-A-Store of their Eastern Cape interests forms part of their strategic intent to focus their efforts entirely on the Gauteng market going forward.

Situated in a prime location, Stor-Age Green Bushes will enjoy fantastic exposure to the busy Old Cape road and is situated within close proximity to the new, to be developed, Bay West Mall. The purpose-built facility offers 10 500 m² + of space and comprises upwards of 700 self storage units ranging in size from 9 to 27 m². The Green Bushes facility was completed in 2010 and trades at an occupancy level of 90%+.

Stor-Age CEO Gavin Lucas commented: “High quality self storage assets which display the correct fundamentals such as this one acquired from Rent-A-Store are in scarce supply across the South African market. This property was very well developed and managed over the last few years. In line with our strategy of having a national presence in all six South African cities, when this opportunity arose we moved swiftly to take advantage of it.”
