For those living in the suburbs outside a major city, getting around can be an issue. While public transportation options like buses and subways exist, it's often much faster to drive. However, owning a car is typically pricey and parking can be a headache, leading many suburbanites and city dwellers to ditch their wheels.
The car-sharing company Autoshare seeks to be a compromise for those who don't want to be stuck with public transportation but can't justify the costs of a full-time car. The company offers affordable rates for drivers to have access to a car when they need it, but the vehicles are shared with other members around the city.
Autoshare is already very popular in Toronto, and now the company is expanding to nearby towns like Mississauga, according to The Toronto Star. Both individuals and corporations have signed up for the service in order to get around the city.
One potential use for Autoshare is to access self storage facilities in Toronto. Jiffy Self Storage offers cheap Toronto self storage rates, and with the use of Autoshare drivers can easily get to-and-from their storage unit. The car rental service may also be useful on move-in day, as it's impractical to take dozens of boxes meant for self storage on a subway.
Self storage can be a smart way to hang on to valuable items without taking up room in a house or apartment. For Toronto storage solutions, there's no better than Jiffy Self Storage.
