Who Will Benefit From Self-Storage

Happy family

As time goes on, we as humans tend to accumulate all this “stuff”. Whether or not we want to face the truth about how much of all this “stuff” we need, we need a place to store it. Self-storage is becoming one of many options for you to keep your belongings. It may have been around for a long time, but that is because it works! Self-storage has become an essential part of many people’s lives whether they live in Downtown Toronto, further out in the GTA, or across Canada. You could be the adventurous traveller who is not planning to settle down anytime soon or the retired couple that is looking to downsize after their adult children have left the nest. 


For all you students out there, you are almost done with the school year! Most of you only have a few months to go before the summer break. Self-storage is probably one of the simplest solutions to where youI put all my belongings without lugging it all the way back home. This is especially true if you are a student at Ryerson University and you live on the other side of Canada, such as Vancouver. You can grab a few friends and rent a storage unit for the summer. Feel free to store your mini-fridge, your comfy beanbag, or anything else that kept you sane this school year! Trust us, you do not want to be lugging that mini-fridge back home when you need it again in September.

Business Owners

Businesses need space to store things too! If you are a small business owner in Toronto, there is a high chance that your store or restaurant lacks space. You might have a tiny backroom where you can store minimal inventory let alone be able to store your paperwork and any old files. Self-storage is meant to help you store your papers, documents, and any excess inventory that you do not have the space to store in that backroom of yours. It can be the perfect solution to your storage needs of your business.

Adventurous Travellers


Are you living your life on standby waiting for the next exciting opportunity to jump on a plane? If travelling is a significant part of your lifestyle then chances are you might need a place to store your belongings at a moment’s notice. You can try asking your parents if you can store your furniture for half a year while you go travelling around Europe or find another solution. Self-storage can help with exactly that! When you get called to go on that spontaneous trip with all of your college friends or that one 6-month trip you have been wanting to take on your own you can store your belongings in a self-storage facility. This way your landlord or you yourself can sublet your apartment while you are away and have a place to store your belongings for the time being. Time and money saver? We definitely think so!


One day, your children will leave the nest and you are left with an “emptier” home. This might be the perfect opportunity to seize the day and downsize whether you want to save money to go travelling as someone who is newly retired or to simply make money by selling. There are many couples that decide to downsize as they get older and their children leave the nest. The only problem with that is you still have all of this stuff you have accumulated over the years. Some of it might be your children’s childhood stuffed animals, awards from sports or the science fair, or old photo albums. These are all belongings you want to keep which is why self-storage is beneficial. Self-storage can be a place to store all these belongings for the time being until you want to take them out again.

New Families

Is there a baby on the way in your life? Do you know what that means? You are going to have to buy more stuff! Your home is going to be filled with diapers and toys. This is the time where you realize you need to find a place to store all of the belongings you plan on no longer using or just not on a daily basis. For instance, if it is summertime, store all your winter gear in a storage unit for now until the winter season rolls around again. This way you can maximize all the space in your home just in time for the baby’s arrival. The same goes for if you are moving in with your significant other and all of your belongings simply would not fit in your 850 square foot apartment. Self-storage can be beneficial for storing those extra belongings you do not mind placing in storage for a while.
