Why Guardian

Aren't all storage facilities basically the same?

Aren't all storage facilities basically the same?

Not all storage facilities are created equal! At Guardian Storage we follow a 12 point checklist when preparing units for rental. Every unit is thoroughly cleaned and serviced before a customer moves in. We do our own snow removal. We employ a professional pest control service. Guardian Storage was awarded the 2006 BizX Award for "Best Place to Store your Stuff" by BizX Magazine. See the story here. We encourage shoppers to check out our competitors to see why 41% of Guardian's new rentals are referrals and returning customers!

Do I need climate controlled storage for my belongings?

Do I need climate controlled storage for my belongings?

Unlike most of our competitors who claim to have climate control, we have a forced air HVAC system that provides heat in the Winter, air in the Summer, and humidity control to balance - just like in your home, to protect antiques, documents, instruments, appliances, etc.

Which is better: cement or steel constructed storage units?

Which is better: cement or steel constructed storage units?

Our experience has been that cement block units have a tendency to hold the moisture and eventually cause a musty smell in the unit. Our units are high grade steel with a smooth cement floor with a vapour barrier in it. The ceilings are thoroughly insulated and vented.

Is it important to allow space for air circulation when I pack my unit?

Is it important to allow space for air circulation when I pack my unit?

For long-term storage we have found that circulation is more crucial than temperature fluctuation. Our ceilings are fully insulated and vented. We provide clean wooden pallets free of charge. It is also recommended that you not "tight pack" your unit but allow a head space for added circulation.

What about insurance on my stored property?

What about insurance on my stored property?

Guardian Storage does not as a rule insure stored property. We recommend that you contact your insurance company continue your homeowner's or renter's insurance as long as you have property stored. If you do not have insurance we will put you in touch with an insurance company that does small short-term policies for our customers.

Do I have to be locked into a contract to store my things?

Do I have to be locked into a contract to store my things?

We only require a minimum of one month. Our agreement is open-ended meaning you can move out whenever you are no longer in need of storage. We will also pro-rate your rent up to 14 days past your rent due date.
