HOMEBOX is France’s first and Europe’s second self-storage brand.
Founded in 1996 by Nicolas Rousselet, HOMEBOX has made self-storage solutions a success in France and beyond for over 25 years.
All our franchises provide secure separate storage for hire, no matter who needs it, from individuals and professionals to large businesses. Our storage centres also stock boxes and packaging accessories for sale.
The HOMEBOX franchise network reaches every part of the country, from large cities to smaller towns. Our network currently has over 140 storage centres across France and abroad. We are continuing to develop our business by opening a dozen new storage centres every year.
The self-storage market is booming and becoming a widespread activity with a significant growth potential. For comparison, the number of self-storage centres per inhabitant in Germany remains far below that of English-speaking markets and, more specifically, ten times lower than the US market.
