Let’s face it; regardless of how clean and tidy our homes are, we could all use some additional space. Additional space may mean that you can finally have your dream shoe collection or space for a desk or office in your bedroom. Whatever the case may be, having some additional space is never a bad thing. A Storage Place is committed to providing the public with effective and affordable storage solutions via the use of our premium, climate-controlled storage units. These come in a variety of sizes and include features that will keep your belongings safe and secure for an extended period of time. Continue reading to learn about our premium storage units and the benefits they offer.
1. Temperature regulation
Nobody wants to leave their belongings in a storage unit for an extended period of time only to discover that they have been damaged or destroyed upon their return. To avoid this, you should always store valuable items such as jewelry, art, furniture, electronics, and documents in climate-controlled storage. If the storage unit is not climate-controlled, humidity can easily seep in and cause jewelry to tarnish, wood to warp, and cameras and computers to fail to function. Several of these items are worth thousands of dollars and will cost you even more if they need to be replaced or repaired after being damaged. It is not sufficient to store your valuables in an empty room; you must ensure that the space is climate controlled. Temperature fluctuations can be detrimental to your valuables, and the risk of losing priceless memories, heirlooms, and prized possessions is never worth it.
2. Excessively high ceilings
Another advantage of our premium storage units is the extra-high ceilings, which provide additional vertical storage space. Not only can you store larger items in our units, but you can also arrange them creatively (for example, by standing a couch on one end) to maximize the space you pay for. If you rent a unit with low ceilings, you will essentially have less space, which will make your belongings more cramped and prone to damage. At A Storage Place, we measure storage space in cubic feet rather than square feet, which makes us significantly more affordable than the competition.
3. Illumination and alarms
One of the first things to consider when storing your belongings is their security once they are hidden from view. At A Storage Place, we place a premium on security, which is reflected in our premium storage units. To begin, our units are well lit to deter theft and to assist our clients in gaining access to their spaces, particularly during the winter when ice and snow create hazardous conditions. Second, our units are secured by a monitored alarm system and 32 surveillance cameras located throughout our facility. The site manager monitors these cameras on a regular basis to ensure no suspicious activity occurs with your valuables.
Additionally, our facility is secured through the use of a computer-controlled access system. This ensures that no one other than you has access to your unit and enables us to track access codes in the event of an emergency. Additionally, it discourages tenants from sleeping in any of our storage units, as the building is secured and closed at 10 p.m. each night to deter theft and criminal activity. Keep in mind that you should choose a unit with superior security features, especially if you are storing items of sentimental or monetary value. Knowing that your belongings will not be easily compromised will provide you with greater peace of mind.
4. Access to electricity, the internet, and a telephone
Depending on how you intend to use your storage unit, access to electricity, the Internet, and a phone line may be critical features. These features are included in our premium storage units for your convenience. There is no need to connect hard drives or keep a refrigerator running for cold storage. You can do all of this and more, as our units, unlike those at conventional storage facilities in the GTA, are well equipped with these amenities.
5. Accessible overhead doors
Our premium storage units truly do have the best features to safeguard your belongings and make your life easier. These units feature an additional overhead door, which simplifies loading and unloading. Additionally, they are designed with your comfort and convenience in mind, so you never have to struggle to access your unit.
