Self Storage Self Storage: Secure, Local & Affordable

Self Storage Solutions in Mississauga, Milton, Oakville, Guelph, Burlington, Woodstock, Ingersoll & Tillsonburg

What is Self Storage?

Self storage, also referred to as mini storage, gives customers the ability to rent space. It may also be known as self-storage because it is not limited to business or commercial accounts. The awareness of business-storage is growing in Mississauga, Oakville, Guelph, Burlington, Milton and Woodstock.

It's a self service option – it is your responsibility to transport your belongings to our facility and pack your storage unit (and eventually to move out of your storage unit). The benefit is that you maintain control over your belongings and can pack your storage unit!

We are often asked if it's like the movies and television shows. In Canada, facilities are friendly, secure and safe. The communities of Milton, Oakville, Mississauga, Burlington, Guelph and Woodstock are reputable and businesslike.


“I live in Milton and work in Burlington. I drove by Storage Solutions and didn’t know what it was for many years until I took a tour. Self storage has made my life easier – I store my kids’ hockey equipment, our Christmas decorations, even a large dog crate that we use for the cottage.”

“Storage seemed like such an American idea to me – but now that I have an 8’x20’ unit with Storage Solutions, I can’t imagine a better way to keep my life organized. I live in Burlington and drive up Guelph Line everyday to work in Oakville and Mississauga – Storage Solutions was a perfect in between for me.”

Types of Self Storage Facilities in Milton, Guelph, Oakville, Mississauga, Burlington and Woodstock

There are several storage options such as traditional warehousing, a container at your house or you pack containers transferred off-site. Storage Solutions has chosen a unique format of individual, containerized storage units at our Milton location and a mix of traditional storage units and shipping containers at our Woodstock location. There are other options available:

Luxurious Storage: Some self-storage facilities offer temperature control and power outlets within the unit. Customers are more familiar with us and have begun to use our facility for a wider variety of business and personal reasons. We’ve spoken to some operators who offer a full concierge of options to customers – they will pack up your entire house, store your different items of furniture and artwork in different units based on humidity and temperature, and then move your belongings to your new house and unpack. We’ve yet to come across a facility like this in Milton, Guelph, Oakville, Burlington, Mississauga or Woodstock, but this might be the next big trend. And of course, their luxury services come with a luxury price-tag!

Subdivided Warehouse: Many self-storage facilities are made from one large outdoor warehouse, subdivided by block, drywall or metal paneling, which in many cases does not go all the way to the ceiling height. This is the typical format for facilities – the lines of garage doors in blue or orange and a neon sign saying “Self Storage” at the front. These self storage facilities, at least in our service areas, usually do have drive up access and you still lock your own unit and keep the key.

Multi-Story Facilities:Typically, these are a couple large loading bays that you can park your truck at and you would use freight elevators to get your belongings from your truck, up to the floor that your storage unit is located on and then you have to move your things down a hallway to your unit door. These facilities are a great use of space and we all know that space is becoming a premium. However, we can’t imagine loading an elevator with your things and having to move them down a long hallway – especially at night – so we made our facility drive-up.


Recent Trends in Self-Storage

Storage facilities are a developing industry in North America. Most industry organizations expect to see an increase in facilities, particularly in growing residential markets and expect to see growth in multi-story facilities. As storing externally becomes a more adopted concept for people, the demand for long term rentals of a medium sized unit are also expected to increase. In essence, it is expected that many people will have a “garage away from home”.

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.
