Is Moving and Storage The Right Option for Me?
I’m downsizing. In the last ten years Canada has seen a boom in rental apartments and condos for young Canadians, along with a trend in downsizing for retiring Canadians and senior citizens in preparation for retirement homes. Such transitions often result in the need for storage of surplus furniture and belongings.
I’m staging. If you’re a Canadian looking to capitalize on the real estate boom, then you’ve probably also heard that staging your home for sale will increase the asking price for your home by more than 6%, and will help you sell 73% faster. When staging your home, you’ll need a safe place to store your furniture, in which case you’ll need secure as well as climate and pest-controlled storage.
I’m renovating. Renovating and remodelling your home is yet another reason that you might need storing your belongings while between homes. While renovating your home, you’ll need to clear space for the tradesmen to do their work. This where the services of a white-glove moving and storage company come in useful. Keep in mind, that the same company that picks up and stores your furniture will likely deliver it after the renovation, so be careful to choose real professionals that won’t destroy your new floors and walls in the end.
I’m a business owner. Your business is growing fast, and you need storage while you move your office furniture, electronics and documents when you are waiting for your new office to be prepared, or you simply have more stuff than you can fit into your office. Commercial storage is perfect for accommodating any surplus office assets of your expanding or seasonal business.
The Right Storage for Me
In the past 10 years the demand and consequently the number of storages across Canada has more than doubled. Moreover, a lot of new types of storages has also appeared, and the new coming moving companies offer low prices but are mostly facing fraud charges. That is why a professional moving and storage company must give the fixed price stated in the contract in advance and you, as a customer, must choose storage wisely after a thorough market research.
When choosing the right storage facility for you, pay close attention to the following details:
- You need private or self-storage?
- Is the storage climate controlled?
- Is the storage security monitored?
- Is the storage sprinkler-equipped?
- Is the storage pest controlled?
- Will my things be insured while in storage?
Neglecting these storage standards can result in damage of furniture due to sharp changes in temperature such as cracking or warping of wooden furniture and malfunction of electronics.

- Short-term storage
Short term storage is generally defined as one to twelve weeks and might also be referred to as storage-in-transit. This is useful for those who have sold their home, and are not yet able to move into their new residence immediately and need to store their belongings while renting a temporary dwelling.
You’ll also need short term storage if you want to declutter your home to prepare it for sale. Once the sale is complete, and you are ready to move to your new residence, we’ll be happy to deliver your possessions, and set them up in your new home.
- Long term storage
Long term storage can be defined as storage that ranges from 3 months to permanent storage, although the time range rarely exceeds 2 years. Long term storage is beneficial if you are downsizing and need your belongings in safekeeping before deciding what to do with them.
It is also useful for those that are relocating to overseas for work under contract, or a set period of time not long enough to sell off your belongings for good, and not short enough to keep paying your rent or property taxes.
Long term storage is also useful for those of you who are renovating or remodelling your homes. Such a project can often take 6 months or longer to complete, and the contents of your home will need to be cleared and stored somewhere safe.
