6 Major Benefits of Short-Term or Temporary Storage

No matter where we live and how big our household is, one common complaint is that we could all use more space. With homes currently getting smaller and layouts for new construction condos and apartments getting tighter, it’s no wonder that more people are looking for offsite storage options. Perhaps you’re in a stage of life where you don’t know where your next move might take you, so you need to look at short-term storage options. Regardless of what your specific situation may be, Jiffy Self-Storage will be sure to have the options and flexibility that you need. Read on to find out more about the benefits of our short-term and temporary storage options so you can have some peace of mind during tumultuous times.

Timeline Flexibility

The major benefit to temporary storage and what makes people gravitate towards it is that there is less commitment. You can rent out a storage unit for however long you decide to, without feeling obligated to keep it for longer than you need. Perhaps you recently sold your home and need somewhere to store items before you find your next place. Or, perhaps you are temporarily storing items that you plan on selling or giving away in the near future. Whatever the case may be, temporary storage allows you more flexibility with your timelines. At Jiffy Self-Storage, we offer month-by-month leases on units in a variety of sizes so you can choose the right amount of space for your needs and extend your lease if need be. We also offer smaller units or “mini storage” if you don’t plan on keeping a lot of items. If you are unsure of what unit size would work best for you, our storage consultants are available to help. We value your time and space, and want to ensure we are making the best of it.

Numerous Amenities

Another advantage of choosing a temporary storage unit for your belongings is that these offsite units often come with more features and amenities than you may find in your garage, basement, or closets. Units are often climate-controlled to prevent damage to your belongings, equipped with security cameras, and well lit to deter theft and burglary. Other features may include high ceilings, computer-controlled access, monitored fire systems, and sprinkler systems.

High-Security Levels

When it comes to your belongings, security should be a major priority. We install cameras to protect our homes, so why shouldn’t we also monitor our offsite storage units that contain our valuables? At Jiffy Self-Storage, we prioritize safety and use a combination of security measures such as cameras, lighting, access codes, and alarms in order to achieve the best protection for your belongings. Before renting any storage unit, make sure to verify the security standards of the facility and ensure that you feel safe and comfortable leaving your items there for any amount of time.

Climate-Controlled Units

Humidity, moisture, and harsh climates can deteriorate and damage our belongings beyond repair. One benefit to temporary storage units is that most of them are climate-controlled so that your items are not susceptible to fluctuations in temperature. This is especially important if you are storing important documents, paperwork, jewellery, furniture, fine art, or electronics. The worst thing would be to come back to retrieve your belongings only to find them unusable, unreadable, or damaged. Prevent this by choosing a climate-controlled storage unit.

Affordable and Cost-Effective

Why pay for space that you don’t need? Simply put, temporary or short-term storage units are more cost-effective if you’re not sure how long you will need them because you aren’t forced into a long-term commitment. Don’t pay for more than you need and put your money to better use. Your storage unit should work for you, not the other way around!

Convenient Access

Located in Toronto, Jiffy Self-Storage units are accessible 7 days a week from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. for your convenience. Should you require assistance, our office is open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. All our units come with a confidential access code that is automatically generated and emailed to you once you start your lease. This ensures that you can come and go as you please, without the need for a manager to grant you access to your belongings. Access codes are disabled after 10 p.m. for security reasons and to deter theft.

So, whether you just need some extra space for a few months or aren’t sure how long you’ll be needing a unit, Jiffy Self-Storage can accommodate your needs. We never try to lock our clients into long-term contracts and can offer you a unit on lease for just one month at a time. There is no pressure or need for a long-term commitment!
