About Us

FEDESSA, the Federation of European Self Storage Associations was formed in March 2004 as response to a fast growing self storage market in Europe.  The federation consists of 14 self storage associations across Europe and today FEDESSA represents 1400 self storage facilities which is over 70% of the self storage facilities in Europe, including all the major operators. Our current members are the self storage associations of Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Spain, The Netherlands, Czech Republic and the United Kingdom.  We are also in close contact with operators or potential operators in Austria, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Poland, Portugal, Romania and Russia.  Representatives from each national association come together twice a year as the General Council.

Our main mission is to:

  • Provide a common voice for the industry throughout Europe.
  • Support the development of national association and encourage countries where the industry is starting up to form their own national association.  Click here to discover our objectives.
  • Position the self-storage industry as a responsible partner and business sector.

Any self storage operation which is member of a European National self storage Association is automatically member of FEDESSA. 

Are you a self storage operator in a European country with no self storage association then you can be a member thanks to our Direct Affiliate membership. Don't hesitate to contact us for more information on info@fedessa.org.
