About us

Pickens Selfstorage was founded in 2007 in Hamburg - as an innovative company providing service to a market that is demanding for more storage space. Privately as well as commercially. 

The company started in 2009 in Berlin-Tempelhof. Since November 2011 provides storage space at a modern self-storage center in Hamburg Wandsbek. In 2012, the third Self Storage warehouse was opened in Berlin-Lichtenberg. There are now further branches in Berlin-Wilmersdorf, Hamburg Groß Borstel and Hamburg Barmbek.

Pickens Selfstorage endeavors to meet the needs of the urban population and expanded into a range of services accordingly.
With the opening of the first wine storage in 2011 and the opening of the CityStorage (self-storage at a city location, without long journeys, for storage space "around the corner") in 2013, as well as the Art Storage in Berlin Wilmersdorf shortly after, Pickens Selfstorage responds to customer inquiries, reviews and requests, to which the company attaches great importance to.

One of the managing directors and the great great grandson of Samuel Pickens - Wolfgang J. Köhnk -  started in 2000 with his first Selfstorage Center in Hamburg-Stellingen. Thus he picked up a family tradition: Samuel Pickens rented out storage space in San Francisco during the gold rush from 1848 to 1854. He opened Storage Centres for everyone. San Francisco grew from 1.000 to 25.000 inhabitants in only two years. Storage space at the Pickens Storage Center was useful for those many people that flocked to California in order to find gold. 

Pickens Selfstorage today stands again for secure, safe, dry and clean storage space for everyone. Quality and service are first priority.
