Self Storage Prices and Rates in Toronto

What is the cost to rent a storage unit in Toronto?

Searching online for prices can be difficult. Each company offers a variety of storage solutions that can make direct comparisons nearly impossible. Determining which are the cheapest or lowest storage unit prices takes some work.

For the most part, there is a premium for storage in Toronto. This often adds $20 to $50 per month for a similar unit just outside of Toronto. Prices often start in the low $300s, even for the smallest available units.

At Self Stor, you will always be given competitive prices that are always clearly defined.

How is the cost of storage calculated?

Availability and location

The most direct comparison is the cost of a hotel/motel room. Each of these are priced based on what the perceived value is. Factoring in availability and the location. The cost of a room during some periods skyrockets, especially during large events.

At Self Stor, we do not price gouge like some of our competitors. We study the cost variables and then price our units to be perfect for our price and value conscious customers.

How long do I have to stay?

Prices can vary depending on the billing cycle. Many companies price their units on 28-day cycles, which adds an additional charge each year! It does not sound like much, but that means they are 8% higher than you think!

Self Stor offers month-to-month pricing. Meaning the billing cycle is based on the anniversary of when you begin storing. If you start on the 17th of the month, that means every 17th of the month you are due, simple right? Self Stor even offers pro-rate options, for when your plans change!

What storage unit size will I need?

There is a large variety of storage unit sizes, ranging from units the size of large luggage, to greyhound buses, and some even larger! With this variety, Self Stor will always be able to serve your storage needs.

The larger the unit, the more it will cost. However, the more space you take, the less it will cost per square foot. It is a fine balancing act to determine what is most cost effective for you. The easiest thing to do is always look for the storage units that have discounts or promotions on them. Self Stor offers 50% OFF THREE MONTHS on select units. This will let you customize your storage plan. If you have any questions, remember, our helpful staff are here for you!

Are there promotions or discounts?

There are two styles of discounts on storage units. Front loaded and back loaded. Each of these offer a valid solution to your storage needs. Front loaded discounts are promotions applied to your unit at the beginning of your rental, such as 50% OFF THREE MONTHS. Back loaded discounts are ones that are forever on your account or take a long time to take advantage of, such as 10% OFF on a 1-year pre-payment or a senior/student discount. At Self Stor, we offer both options to cater to your needs. Always ask your local Self Stor manager which option is best for you.

What about quality of services and facilities?

Self Stor prides itself on quality and expertise! We are one of the highest rated storage companies in Canada just for that reason! Always be cautious when doing your own research. Check the companies reviews and see how they interact with their customers. Check the lowest reviews and see how they are managed. If the review seems reasonable but the response does not, may be it is best to look elsewhere.
