To whom it may concern: Toronto East SelfStor (Bermondsey Rd.)
We have just finished our 14 years renting a nice sizable locker at the Bermondsey location (we finally moved to a larger apartment), and would like to confirm many testimonials others have written.
Ruth and staff have been first-rate and very friendly every time we’ve had contact with them. The location has consistently been SO clean and well maintained over our 14 year association. Periodically, I would do a deep-dive into our locker with a flashlight looking for ‘creatures’
and over the entire time, I never found even one. (And I know what to look for.) But because management and staff are vigilant about cleanliness, we never had a worry about our stored items for one moment. I used to love popping out from time to time to either bring back or drop off an object or two.
I will have no reservations in sincerely recommending this location to anyone looking for a professionally run locker service.
Absolutely top-notch, and if there was a star rating, this location would be 6 out of 5 in our eyes!!!
Thanks all again for making this part of our happy recollections. “Do you remember our locker?” “I sure do . . . it was always so nice and clean!! Wow!” That is how I will fondly remember the Self-Stor location on Bermondsey.
Mr. & Mrs. Laspa
Hey there Dominic,
Thank you so much as always for the updates. I really appreciate the amazing customer service you offer (and for looking after my beloved stuff)
I am writing this to express my thanks to you and all your staff during the time I was clearing out my storage unit. I am sorry I didn’t have the opportunity to do this personally on the last Friday I was there.
It also gives me the opportunity to say how much I appreciate the extraordinary care that your CSR, Angelo, took care of all my needs during this difficult period. I believe that the help he offered was way above what anyone could have reasonably expected. This service again confirms the opinion that I have had since I first arrived at your location. To repeat what I have said before it has been the most satisfactory business and personal relationship I have ever had with any company.
I am prepared to describe this relationship as a reference with some actual experiences if you need this for your files. I also hope that we will have the opportunity to renew our acquaintance when I return to Toronto. If I ever need a storage unit again, I am certain that I would have no hesitation in coming back to you to discuss my needs.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the wonderful team
members at Self Stor on Newkirk Road in Richmond Hill for their
professionalism, excellent customer service and the great culture of care
demonstrated by all individuals in that store.
I have been a customer to this facility for over 2 years and have made
several trips to the storage facility during this time. The staff have
always been great, helpful and fun! They are all easy to work and talk with
and are very accommodating and represent your company with the highest level
of professionalism and integrity.
As I was moving my furniture out from your facility for the last time, I
lost the keys to my house that I was moving into that day. I called Michael
Perry (my life line) at Self Stor to see if he may have seen them. Without
me asking or urging, Michael took it upon himself to back track and walk the
corridors to my storage locker, checking garbage bins along the way, exits,
asking other customers in the corridor that day, the lobby, the candy jar
where I helped myself to a lollipop (what?! The candy jar was staring me in
the face!), lobby chair and under the mat in the lobby. This was great
initiative on behalf of Michael and is also indicative of his leadership
abilities and skills with the team in Richmond Hill. I later found out that
Michael talked to the staff about looking out for my keys at your annual
Office Dinner Party since everyone was there. WOW! I wasn’t and didn’t
expect him to do that for me!
I’m always pleased to see Michael when I arrive which I noticed at times he
covers many hours at the store. Shortage of staff is certainly the sign of
the times. I’ve been there before in hotel operations…so, I understand
the service industry. No matter how many consecutive days he has worked in
a row, he was always upbeat and helpful.
In my current position in the hotel industry, I wear the hat of Operations
Consultant, Quality Assurance Assessor and Superior Customer Care Trainer.
Let me tell you…every time I walk into Self Stor, I walk out with the
“WOW” effect from your staff. Hats off and thumbs up! I will certainly use
my experience at Self Stor – Michael and team are excellent examples for
future Superior Customer Care training of exemplifying Superior Customer
I strongly feel that Michael and the team at this store deserve the highest
recognition from your organization. You set a great example to others!
In the world of journalism, there is a saying, “When it bleeds, it
reads”…In other words, bad news travels fast and 10 people will tell 10
Well, in your case, your excellent demonstration of Superior Customer Care
will travel faster as I’ve already told 10 people and will continue during
my training and leadership presentations…
I will miss you guys – thanks for taking care of me! You will always be in
Happy Holidays and more continued successes in 2009!!! All the BEST!!!

To whom it may concern,
We have rented three storage lockers ar Selfstor Toronto West since 2006 and we have been very happy with the facilities and very friendly and prompt service you have shown us. The clean bright-lit and easily accessible buildings make us feel that our belongings are safe and secure. At any time when we have needed assistance from the office, the staff has been very helpful. We’ve made ample use of the packing boxes in various sizes that you have for sale in the office. We recommend Selfstor Toronto West as a top notch storage facility and will continue to use your services as we need them.
After a little research, I discovered Self Stor on Bermondsey. This facility is spotless and the prices are reasonable. The deciding factor for me was the attitude, knowledge and helpfulness of Richard. I signed up right away and continue to be impressed by all the staff and how well they follow up when they say they will.
I recently rented a storage locker at the Bermondsey location. Just wanted to say “thanks” for the service that was provided. I visited several different locations when I was looking for a place to store some contents of my house during a renovation. Most were similar in price-what made a difference was the folks that I dealt with during these site visits. I wanted to mention two of your staff-Richard and Bruce-they were the ones that convinced me that I could trust my things to Self Stor. They were quick to answer my questions and came across as flexible and fair. Customers need to feel that they can trust the storage company-if they do not feel comfortable with the staff then it is a no-go. Perhaps the difference is subtle, but they are the reason I chose Self Stor.
Please pass on my thanks.
In early 2007, my company decided to change our storage facility. In choosing a locker, my team was looking for a safe, convenient location, with a large enough space for 5 sales reps, that was cost efficient. Toronto East Selfstor certainly fit the bill for all our requirements. Great location, variety of sized lockers to choose from and excellent security. However, it is the exceptional service that really sets this company apart from the others! Ruth and Bill are extremely professional, helpful and friendly. It is always a pleasure going there. Thank you for all your hard work, it is very much appreciated!

I have been a client at Toronto East SelfStor (Bermondsey Rd.) for the past 6 years. However, my company has held the same unit that I use for the past 15+ years. This is a true testament to the exceptional standards of customer service that Ruth, Bill and the other employees provide. Not only do they collect my rent (but in a really, really nice rent collector kind of way!!), but they help out with courtesy phone calls for large and/or important deliveries, help with loading my van and always a watchful eye.
But its not only a business relationship. I often stop in the office to chat on the way back to my unit. They are TOP NOTCH employees who would be dearly missed if I ever moved. This storage facility is actually outside of my sales territory, but I wouldn’t move if you paid me!!
Keep up the good work. Your dedication and genuine interest in your tenants is truly appreciated!
(PS…I actually brag about ‘my peeps’ at SelfStor)
Dominic and Staff are wonderful. They are always helpful and friendly and can never do enough for you. The facility is always very clean, safe and all areas are well lit.
My name is April Dang. I have been a Canadian citizen for 40 years but have recently moved to the U.S. this year.
I worked in the banking industry, in Canada, for 18 years and know how important it is to give credit where it is due when people give outstanding customer service.
I had a storage unit at your Richmond Hill Self Stor for over a year but due to my residence change it was then handled by my mother. Being out of the country it can be a little unnerving not being sure that your matters at home can be handled without you being there. I came across a few situations where it would be imperative that my mother be able to access my unit and all dealings be taken care of by her. Your representatives, especially Michael Perry, assured me before I left that I did not need to concern myself as everything was in order to have my mother take care of the unit and if there were any issues they could deal with her directly. It was just as important to them as it was to me that I feel comfortable that nothing would fall through the cracks and I would not be abroad and find out that they needed anything further from me.
My brother recently returned from abroad and needed to store some of his home belongings. I immediately suggested that he use Self Stor as they have great facilities but even more important they are customer service focused. He opened up a unit at the Richmond Hill location.
My brother was called away on business in Turkey. In December he contacted me to let me know that some items he had purchased in Montreal were ready for delivery and needed to be immediately shipped . I happened to be in Toronto for 2 days only when he called me from Turkey. We did not know what to do as his current unit with Self Stor most likely could not fit the boxes and we had no relatives with space for it. By mid afternoon and many phone calls later I suggested to him that I drive to Self Stor and see if they could solve his dilemma. Robin Cousineau was the representative on shift and when I explained the situation she said that she did not see any problem and they could help us out. She immediately came up with a solution for us and his items were to be shipped to a new storage unit that was opened for him. He was provided with the unit # and the address to provide to the shippers in Montreal and everything was taken care of. I then spoke with Michael Perry, once again, and let him know that I appreciated all that he and his staff continue to do to help us out in our times of need and in our daily usage of storage space.
Twice now when it really counted, your team at the Self Stor ( 25 Newkirk Road) office far exceeded our expectations and gave us peace of mind when it was really needed.
It is this type of “above and beyond” customer service that shows the committment and sincerity of your employees and that they truly value the customer.
Thank you for listening and I hope you let them know that myself and my family greatly appreciate all they have done and continue to do, simply because they like doing it and customer service is of the utmost importance to them.
I am only one of your most loyal tenants because of the very personal service you have given me since I found you. It was such a lucky day for me when I stumbled on your location, almost by accident, just when I was looking for such a service. I still remember with much affection the help you have given me in both good and not so good times.

I would absolutely recommend your facility to anyone looking for storage in future. The facility itself is excellent and your staff have all been fantastic to deal with.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and all the staff at Self Stor for the amazing quality of service and for the superior quality of the facility that Self Stor runs at Bermondsey Ave.
I run my small business from the 2 units that I rent with you and I find that the hours of operation and the set up of the facility are exactly what I need to run my business from day to day.
I have had to use storage facilities in the past and they don’t come anywhere near the quality I get at Self Stor.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!
Do something great today!

For the past 5 years I have used this facility for storage of household articles. In that time I have had excellent results with absolutely no problems and have received excellent customer service. The storage lockers themselves are kept very clean and well maintained, doors and latches in proper working order and equipped with lighting that works.
The grounds are also very well maintained, the perimeter is completely fenced with a single security entrance in and out. The security system is very up to date and well maintained.
In my opinion, this is a place where you can store your articles and have piece of mind. As for the cost, for the service that you receive and the piece of mind, this is really not expensive.
I will personally continue to recommend this facility to anyone, including friends, especially my family. This in itself says it all for me.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
Self Stor Management,
I recently rented a storage area at your Richmond Hill location and wanted to comment on the excellent service I received. The level of customer service I received each time I visited the office was outstanding.
I found both Pavel and Michael to be extremely helpful and courteous. Their service has guaranteed that I will always choose Self Stor for myself and strongly recommend it to my friends and colleagues.
Dear Dominic & the Ladies,
Please give my congratulations to Thomas on his promotion to Manager in Guelph. It is a nice city to live and I’m sure it will offer Thomas the opportunity to get out into some lovely country to ride his bike.
I also hope life is treating you all well and that business is still growing for you. You offer the best service in the business and you deserve the success I’m sure you are enjoying.
