Should I Rent A Storage Unit?

Different people have different reasons for using storage facilities, from business to personal, but all of them have one common goal, to store items safely and securely. At Advanced Storage Centres, our customers range from residents storing unused furniture to local businesses who need to store their heavy equipment. While self-storage is a relatively new industry by industry standards, it is gaining popularity at a rapid pace.

When you have too much stuff piling up at home, you might want to consider renting a storage unit instead of throwing away your precious belongings. Here is a list of reason of why you should rent a storage unit.


If you need a place to store your belongings while moving to a new home, transitioning between leases, living in temporary housing, or relocating across the country, a storage unit is perfect for you! We understand the hard work and stress that is involved even with the simplest of moves. Maybe you don’t want to damage your belongings. Maybe you don’t want to disassemble and reassemble the bulky furniture pieces. Or maybe your new home isn’t ready yet. Renting a self storage unit is an affordable way to hold your belongings until you’re ready for them. Just make sure you find a storage facility with month to month leasing so you’re not locked in for longer than you need. If you choose to go with us, at Advanced Storage Centres, you pay month to month and you can cancel with just two days’ notice.


You’re not a slob, you just have issues with clutter! They’re not the same. We know decluttering your home is a stressful project. It can take weeks, or even months. But this year will be different! With a self storage unit, you can clear the clutter in your house in one day while keeping all your precious belongings. We’ll keep your stuff safe for when you need it. Let’s be honest, they all have equal sentimental value! Save yourself the stress by renting a self storage unit. Let us help you quickly get organized!


Residential Storage

Sometimes you need to put away old furniture for a while. Storage facilities make it easy to store any types of goods, including furniture, electronic equipment, jewelry, cars, clothing, and other valuables. Many of our storage units are climate controlled too, meaning you won’t have to worry about rust or mold. Additionally, you can store your record collection or even your antiques in a storage unit. It won’t take up room in your house, yet you can still access it 365 days a year. Win-win for everyone in your family.

Business Storage

If you’re a business owner, storage units offer you an affordable place to securely park your inventory and/or equipment. At Advanced Storage Centres, we can accept deliveries on your behalf. This means you can get your inventory delivered straight to your unit without you being there! Owning a business is already stressful, so having one less thing to worry about is always appreciated. Storage units also provide a secure place to keep your business documents and paperwork. Did you know Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) requires you to retain all business records for 6 years? These documents can pile up quick! A storage unit can be your deposit place for documents you don’t need to access regularly.
