Keep Abacus in Mind When You Start a Renovation Overhaul


There’s nothing as exciting as the moment you decide to completely renovate your home. It doesn’t matter if your house is an entirely new acquisition you intend to flip, or it’s the very first house you bought decades ago. Getting to say goodbye to faulty, outdated, or downright ugly design choices comes with a certain feeling of relief, especially if you have the freedom to update your spaces with your own unique style. Sometimes, it’s simply an aesthetic overhaul of a certain room. Other times, it’s a complete structural transformation of the entire building. When you’re remodelling plans are as ambitious as to take on the whole house, you’ll need to figure out where to put your stuff in the meantime. If you’re planning for an extensive renovation in the upcoming months, remember us, the GTA’s friendly self storage service.

Protect Your Stuff

Construction — however you go about it — is a pretty dirty undertaking. With torn down walls, ripped up plumbing, newly installed infrastructure and fixtures, and freshly laid flooring comes mess — and a lot of it. You don’t want your valuable furniture or priceless belongings in the mix with all of the sawdust, plaster powder, and general debris that comes with a wide-spread makeover. They also pose as a nuisance — if not outright danger — for your contractors. Your possessions and furniture can get in the way of their work, impeding their ability to carry out your plans safely.

Flexible Rental Terms

It just makes sense to box up your belongings and prepare your furniture and appliances for a trip to our mini self storage units. We have both short- and long-term rental contracts available to accommodate any length of renovation. We’re all about offering convenience, which is why we have no problem extending your rental contract at the last minute in case of your projected schedule changes. It’s the nature of contracting work. Deep renovations always manage to uncover surprising structural problems that push back deadlines.

Convenient Locations

With locations in North York, Thornhill, Vaughan, Markham, and Richmond Hill, we’re your local choice for secure and expedient mini self storage. Each one of our locations comes with the same features ensuring the security of your belongings. Our on-site managers confirm the electronic security measures are in fine working order to guarantee ‘round the clock protection. Expect environmental climate controls to regulate both the temperature and humidity levels in your unit as well.

Ample Space

Don’t worry if you need to stowaway all of your Earthly possessions or only a few boxes and pieces of furniture — we’ve got you covered! We offer a variety of unit sizes to accommodate all of your needs. Take a look at our size guide for a full run down of all of the available sizes, but rest assured, the largest unit can fit as much as what the average 3 – 5 bedroom house can.

Give us a call and let us share in your enthusiasm for the new and exciting time in your life. As you (or your team of contractors) don a pair of goggles, pick up a sledgehammer, and get ready to start your makeover, let us do what we can to help your renovation go as smoothly as possible. We’ll set you up with a mini self storage unit to keep all of your stuff out of the way during your house-wide overhaul.
