Moving can be an extremely stressful time in a persons life. Packing up to vacate ones premises and move to another can be overwhelming. Even more overwhelming is when the move takes you from a large space to a smaller one and suddenly, you have more belongings than room to accommodate them. If this is a permanent situation such as empty-nesters looking to downsize, then perhaps a garage sale is in order. For many others, however, parting with belongings that they hope to use again will mean looking for a place to store them.
Located not far from downtown Toronto, Etobicoke self storage space units are a viable option for people wanting to store their belongings. Many different things will have to be taken into consideration when looking to store your items, so be prepared to spend some time investigating your options.
Storing away belongings generally means that you would like to one day be able to use them again. To this end, looking at the security of the units you are considering to store your belongings will be very important. These days it seems most, if not all, facilities have video monitoring of their premises. In addition to that you may also be able to provide your own lock for your rented space. This will give you control over who has access to your things. And just as you would have insurance on items in your home or apartment, you will want to make sure you have adequate insurance on the things you are storing at any facility.
Many units offer round the clock access to your space. This can be a definite bonus if you think you will need to go through the items you have stored at odd hours of the day. If you are fairly certain you will need to visit the facility during non-business hours, it may be good to also consider the lighting and security for your own personal safety and not just your belongings.
If it appears that your items will be stored for a long period of time, perhaps over a couple of seasons, you may want to check into companies that offer climate controlled spaces. This will be especially important if you plan to store things that may be sensitive to changing temperatures. Among those things that might benefit from a climate controlled space would be pianos, electronics and pictures. As well, if you plan to spend any amount of time in the space you have rented sorting or repacking things, a climate controlled area would make it more comfortable. The temperature of such spaces tends to range from 12 to 26 degrees Celsius.
Prices for the rental of the units range from around 38 CAD a month for a small space to over 400 CAD for larger ones. If money is a concern, packing carefully to utilize the space efficiently is a must. Also, ask about specials when you call for quotes and check out websites as several offer move-in bonuses that can help make the cost more affordable.
Being organized in how you pack and what you store in your local Etobicoke storage units can help take the stress out of a move. They are a viable, affordable option when a move means temporarily parting with your belongings.
