In this post, I'll cover the luggage storage options in Bangkok. I'll look at the locations, pricing, payment options and security of each service in detail, so you can choose the best service for your trip.
7 Best Luggage Storage Options in Bangkok
Radical Storage is my go-to service for keeping my luggage safe while I hop around town.
They have locations all over the world that connect travelers to partner businesses offering storage services.
You can book via the websites, or use their app on both Android and iOS.
Radical Storage operates 3,000 locations in 300 cities, and one of those cities is Bangkok.
Radical Storage uses proprietors of small or medium-sized businesses like cafes, restaurants, groceries, bars, bike shops, and even hotels to store luggage safely.
In Bangkok, there are currently 16 locations, each strategically located near airports, downtown and popular tourist areas.
From Suvarnabhumi and Don Muang airports to Hualampong Station, MBK, Terminal 21, and China Town, there's a Radical Storage service provider almost everywhere you're likely to be.
Pricing is fixed regardless of size and weight.
In Bangkok, the charge is 100 Baht per bag per day.
Daily rates are calculated from 12 AM to 11:59 PM. Picking up your luggage after midnight will result in an additional daily charge.
Any luggage, regardless of size, must be declared when booking online. This is to make sure that providers only accept the number of items indicated on the booking.
The names and addresses of the service providers are kept private and can only be seen once you have make a booking.
Providers will only accept bookings made through the website or the mobile app.
You can book online using a PayPal account or a credit card.
You’ll receive a confirmation email that contains all your booking details. Note that reservations are considered non-refundable.
All Radical Storage service providers go through a strict verification process. Each piece of your luggage is insured for 500 Euros.
Vertoe is a virtual platform that connects travelers and shopkeepers, so that your luggage can be safely stored in big cities around the world.
The concept was realized after the founders experienced difficulty in finding a storage service on a multi-city trip.
The company derives its name from the Latin word ‘verto’, which means exchange or transformation.
Vertoe locations are local businesses such as hotels, restaurants, and retail shops that have extra space capable of storing your items in a safe and affordable way.
There are numerous Vertoe locations in Bangkok, notably Suvarnabhumi airport, Don Mueang airport, MBK, Central World, and Terminal 21.
Vertoe fees start at around 190 Baht per day.
The longer you store your belongings, the larger discount you'll receive. For example: storing for a week or more gets you a 15% discount, while a month gives you 30% off.
There is no size or weight limit for luggage, but shop owners are given the right to refuse an item that weights over 35kg. In such cases, you will be fully refunded.
All bookings are made via the website. You simply type in your preferred location, check-in and checkout time of your luggage, and the quantity of items, and the storage locations will be revealed.
The exact addresses of the premises available to store your luggage can only be seen once your booking is confirmed. You'll receive a booking confirmation via text message.
Partners are manually verified. Shopkeepers are interviewed and the premises inspected for suitability.
Data privacy is handled securely through the website, so the business owner does not see your personal information.
Upon arrival, you will be given uniquely coded tamper proof seals for your bags. Your booking is covered by an insurance policy of $5,000.
One of the best features of Vertoe is the ability to enable someone else to pick up your bags. If there are multiple people in your party, you can add a guest to your booking, either when you book or afterwards.
When picking up the bags, the guest will need a copy of the booking confirmation and image of the tamper-proof seal.

Redd allows you to access your storage unit at anytime. To ensure your goods are safe, CCTV monitors and security guards are on watch 24 hours a day. In addition, doors are alarmed and units have humidity control.
Bangkok Self Storage
Bangkok Self Storage was established in 2004 under foreign ownership. The company offers lockers and mini-warehouses to the general public.

The steel units are designed to tolerate heat, humidity, water, and protect against insects and other pests. The units are also regularly cleaned to ensure sanitary conditions.
If you choose the Personal Storage option, you will be given a padlock so that only you can access your unit.
I-Store provides short-term and long-term storage services in Bangkok.
In addition to personal and business storage, the company operates a wine storage cellar.
This is a longer-term storage option orientated towards expats. The website quote form starts from one month, with no daily storage plan.
I-Store’s Bangkok facilities are based in Silom and Sukhumvit 24.
The headquarters is located on Soi Sukhumvit 24, about 500 meters from BTS Phrom Phong Station, and just opposite the Marriott Executive Apartment.

If you are looking to store a couple of suitcases, you'll be fine with the smallest option. To get a quote, you'll need to submit your requirements using the quote form on the website.
Payment to I-Store can be made via bank transfer to Kasikorn Bank or the Government Savings Bank.
A security system is in operation 24 hours a day, with CCTV installed on every floor.
Secure accessibility to the units is through a key card system. Smoke detectors are also in place for protection against fire.
There is no shortage of affordable luggage storage options in Bangkok. Whether you need daily luggage storage or a more long-term arrangement for bigger items, you have a good selection of affordable services.
For luggage I recommend Radical Storage. It's a great service and very affordable at 100 Baht per day, per piece of luggage. They also boast at 0.00% missing luggage rate. Can't get more secure than that!
Vertoe is a close second. It is 90 Baht more expensive than Radical per day per piece of luggage but it doesn't have a higher insurance cover, so if you have expensive items in your suitcase it may make sense to pay the extra.
Airportels is also a good option, starting at 100 Baht. They also offer luggage delivery to your hotel, and parcel delivery.
If you require storage for a week or more, Redd and Bangkok Self Storage are both centrally located and affordable options. I-Store will suit expats looking to store goods for a month+.
From 100 Baht a day ($3), you can't go wrong. It certainly beats lugging your cases all over town!
