Buying a cellar for storage? any advice

Your advice please.

Instead of renting a storage unit, we're considering buying a cellar or storage room to keep our stuff because we believe it gives us more flexibility or more cost effective in long run. We're looking for something like 5-10m2

Does anyone come across with any information on this.

I find nothing with google....only garage or the whole warehouse for sale.

Thanks a lot.

immoscout24.ch, choose other objects for search and then within 5km of Pully and you'll get some cellar partitions and hobby rooms as part of the search results under additional filters. Only to rent though.

A garage will cost you over CHF 30'000. You can rent a spot (with the m2 you need) in one of the services for a LOONG time for that type of CHF.

This is the one I have used in the past. http://extrastockage.ch/

If you can afford to buy, then just rent.
Buying will open you up to all sorts of liabilities concerning the building etc, and costs involved in buying selling would surely wipe out any conceivable benefit.

Re: Buying a cellar for storage? any advice

I used to rent a storage room until we had a flooding and I had to calculate the value of things perished for the insurance claim. Turned out all the crap we stored was worth less than paid in rent. Anything of true value we kept in the apartment. This was the end of me thinking of ever buying additional storage space.
