Let’s be real; we could all do with some extra room in our homes no matter how clean and tidy we are. Extra space could mean you finally get to have your dream shoe collection or room to put a desk or office right in your bedroom. Whatever the case may be, having some extra room could never hurt. At Jiffy Self-Storage, we believe in providing effective and affordable storage solutions to the public through the use of our premium, climate controlled storage units. These are available in a variety of sizes and feature amenities that will help keep your belongings safe and secure for any period of time. Read on to learn about our premium storage units and the benefits that come with them.
1. Temperature control
No one wants to leave their belongings in a storage unit for an extended period only to find that, upon returning, their items are damaged and destroyed. To prevent this from happening, you need to choose climate-controlled storage whenever you are keeping important items such as jewellery, art, furniture, electronics, and documents. If the storage unit you are using is not climate-controlled, then humidity can easily seep in and cause jewellery to tarnish, wood to warp, and cameras and computers to stop working. Some of these items can be worth thousands of dollars, and will cost you even more if you have to replace or fix them once damaged. It’s not enough to store your valuables in an empty room somewhere; you have to make sure that the space you choose is climate controlled. Fluctuations in temperature can be detrimental to your valuables and is never worth the risk of losing precious memories, heirlooms, and prized possessions.
2. Extra high ceilings
Another benefit of our premium storage units is the extra high ceilings, which allow for even more storage space vertically. Not only can you store larger items in our units, but you can also place them creatively (standing a couch on one end, for example) in order to maximize the space you pay for. If you were renting a unit without high ceilings, you would essentially have access to less space, making your items more cramped and prone to damage. At Jiffy Self-Storage, we think of your storage space in terms of cubic rather than square feet, making us easily the more affordable option when compared to the competition.
3. Lighting and alarms
One of the first things to consider when storing your belongings is how safe they will be once left out of sight. At Jiffy Self-Storage, we make safety our top priority and our premium storage units reflect just that. First of all, our units are well lit to deter theft and to help our clients access their spaces, especially in the winter when ice and snow make for dangerous conditions. Second, our units are protected through a monitored alarm system, as well as 32 cameras throughout our facility. The site manager regularly monitors these cameras to ensure your valuables are not subject to any suspicious activity.
In addition, our facility uses a computer controlled access system for further security. This ensures that no one but you has entry to your unit and allows us to track access codes if necessary. It also keeps tenants from spending the night in any of our storage units, as the building is secured and closed every night at 10 p.m. to deter theft and criminal activity. Remember to choose a unit that has top-notch security features, especially when you are storing items of either sentimental or monetary value. It will give you greater peace of mind to know that your belongings will not be easily compromised.
4. Power, Internet, and phone access
Depending on how you plan on using your storage unit, having access to hydro, Internet, and a phone line may be an important feature. Our premium storage units include these features for your convenience. You don’t have to worry about plugging in hard drives or having a refrigerator running for cold storage. You can do all this and more, as our units are well equipped with these amenities, unlike conventional storage facilities in the GTA.
5. Overhead doors for easy access
Our premium storage units really do have the best features to protect your items and make life easier for you. These units are equipped with an additional overhead door, making loading and unloading a breeze. They are also designed with your comfort and convenience in mind, so you don’t have to struggle whenever you choose to access your unit.
Ultimately, the popularity of our premium storage units speak for themselves. At Jiffy Self-Storage, there is a limited supply of these units available, as they prove to be extremely convenient for a variety of uses.
