Canadians gaining interest in storage unit industry

Over the past few years, Canadian residents have been looking into ways to make sure they are taking full advantage of the benefits that come along with their storage units. According to Extra Storage Space, Canadians started becoming interested in the self storage industry after watching how successful the facilities were in the United States and the rest of the world. According to the Self Storage Association, there are currently 12,000 self storage facilities located throughout Europe, Asia, Australia, Canada, Latin America, South America and Japan.

Since the interest increased, more units began popping up throughout the country. While some consumers choose to store their personal items, others are using them to store gold and other metals. Terry Hanlon, president of Dillon Gage Metals, told the source this type of specialization will help Canada's industry in the long run. 

"We believe the demand for metals storage and distribution will continue to increase in North America and globally this decade, as many new investors and funds buy physical gold, silver and platinum," he said.

Jiffy offers businesses plenty of options for Toronto storage, whether one needs to store filing cabinets or office supplies. What's more, the company is currently holding a contest for a new iPad 3, which is a device that just about every business person could use to help improve productivity.
