Stasher

 

Highlights and Main Features

 

Stasher is similar to LuggageHero in that it has as one selling-point how a number of its locations are open 24 hours a day (as is also discussed in ease of use).

Unlike LuggageHero however, Stasher is a pay-by-the-day service, so it can be a good option if you need to be able to access your luggage at possibly odd times of the day but would rather not pay an hourly rate.

  • Stasher costs $6 per day/24 hours.

Other Things Worth Noting

 

  • Each bag has $1200 of insurance upon it.
  • Long-term storage options are available at a discount.
  • There is no limit on the height or weight of bags.

 

One Other Option: Airport Storage

 

Airport storage is generally not recommended as it can cost a great deal (easily $15-$35 per item) as the size and weight of luggage is considered. Also, the hours of availability to access your luggage may be a lot more limited than with other luggage storage options. There is the benefit that reservations are not required (saving you having to sign-up for a service or app), but the absurdly high prices make using storage services besides Airport Storage much more preferred.
