About us

Zebrabox is the leading provider of self-storage solutions and offers its customers more than 6750 storage spaces at 12 sites in Switzerland.


The company has been founded in 2003 by Christian Schmutz with the support of private entrepreneurs. The highly prolific company “Ministorage”, founded 1979 in Zürich, has been taken over in 2008. Therefore Zebrabox is the first Self Storage venture in Continental Europe.  From this point on Zebrabox increased permanently and extended its network with branches in Basel, Bern, Horgen, IttigenLausanne, Schlieren, Spreitenbach, Therwil, St. GallenVilleneuve, Winterthur and Zurich.


Through the leading co-owners we cultivate a strong proximity to our customers and offer the best possible service on a high quality level around the subject “storage”. Zebrabox is planning further openings to continuously expand its network of locations.

Why the name Zebrabox

Zebrabox stands for the diversity of its customers. All zebras are alike, but they are all different. Just as with our customers it is identical: everyone needs a storage solution, but each one has different needs and Zebrabox will provide everyone with a tailor-made solution.

Member of Fedessa and 3SA

Zebrabox is a proud member of the Fedessa (Federation of European Self Storage Association) and 3SA (Swiss Self-Storage Association). The membership underlies strict criteria and requires compliance with a quality standard that defines the quality of the services offered and a code of ethics that regulates the treatment of our customers.
