A Storage Unit Can Save a Marriage

It’s true! We’ve seen it before – a self-storage unit can save a marriage. We all have limited space in our house, our garage, our car, our cottage, and we seem to acquire more and more stuff that fills up that space. As the years go on, we have more stuff, less room, and feel disorganized. Soon, it’s tough to access all of the stuff you have, which isn’t great, because then you know you have a tool for this specific job, or you already bought a Christmas wreath last year, but you can’t get to it!

We posted “a storage unit can save a marriage” on our road sign and have had so many people come in, chuckling to themselves, and then seriously say, “yes, it really did save mine!”, so we know it’s the truth.

Here are some ideas for storing as a couple:

  • The Even Steven: Get a medium sized self-storage unit at our Milton facility, which is an 8’x20’ unit, and split it down the middle.
  • His and Hers: Get two small sized self-storage units, 8’x8’s, right next to each other and keep your “stuff” separate. This works for the couples that have different interests and hobbies, like the wife who sews probably doesn’t want her machine and materials mingling with her husband’s tools and woodworking equipment.
  • The “Secret”: One spouse gets a storage unit to keep the peace. If we’re being honest, this is almost always the husband and it’s usually all of us stuff that is preventing a car from being parked in a garage. But, in theory, it could be the wife storing her gardening equipment in the winter, or her snowmobile in the summer!

What’s great about Storage Solutions? Many things! The best thing is that our storage units are all drive-up with lots of room for you to unload a truck or trailer – no elevators, no long hallways. We also rent month-to-month, so you commitment is very minimal. We are also a family business and our reputation is on the line with our service so we work hard to maintain a clean and secure facility every day.  

Still have questions? We’re happy to find answers for you! Call us at 905-854-1008, email us at info@storagesolutionsontario.com or come on in to 9200 Twiss Rd, Milton Ontario.

Very reliable storage. A good solution to park your car and keeping it protected from all weather conditions. Although a bit remote location.. but the price and the service was worth it.

I went in to find out some information on storage units for when I move in a couple weeks and was happily surprised by the customer service I received. I had looked at a few other storage facilities in Woodstock but their customer service was terrible compared to Jared's from Storage Solutions. He was professional and understanding of my needs and was ready to help anywhere he could. I will definitely be spreading the word to any of my friends looking for units!

Great rates for a clean, secure, well lit place. Really good staff and a company that cares. New facility and the competitors are pretty tired looking and charging the same rates (if not a bit more).

My husband and I recently relocated from the US and needed a place to store all of our belongings while we secured a new home. The folks at Storage Solutions advised us on the right size unit for our needs, at the right price. They were kind and helpful with all of our "first-timer" questions. We were very confident in the security of the place, and had absolutely no issues. I would highly recommend and use them again if needed.

Been storing office and personal items for years. Have had various size units. Prices are great and staff has always been helpful.
