  • Can I park a car in a storage unit?

    Yes you can – vehicle storage usually requires a larger ground unit. These are subject to availability. Get in touch with us to discuss.

  • What should you NOT store in a storage unit?

    Anything that is harmful or illegal is not to be kept in a storage unit. This includes toxic or combustible substances like paint, solvents, gasoline, harmful chemicals. Weapons and items that are considered illegal or acquired illegally, are also not allowed.

    Anything perishable like fresh or tinned food can encourage rats, mice and bugs, as well as degrading while in storage and potentially harming other things in your storage unit. Living creatures like pets or even your plants are not meant to be kept in a storage unit.

    Our storage units are designed for things like your furniture, clothes, DVDs, CDs, paperwork, and collectibles.

  • Can you sleep in a storage unit?

    If you have spent all day rummaging through your things and need a quick lie down, it isn’t illegal. But a storage unit is for your belongings, not human habitation, so spending the night or living out of a storage space is not allowed, from a safety as well as insurance standpoint. There is no way to lock the unit from the inside, there is no safe ventilation, nor is there access to running water or ablution facilities.
