Camping Season is Upon Us!!

camping

The time is almost here! What time you may ask? Well, it’s almost time for CAMPING season! Every year, some friends and I organize a camping trip for the May long weekend. What better way to welcome the warmer temperatures and the summer months than spending it outdoors for the first long weekend of the summer.

Camping may not be everyones favorite outdoor activity, but it sure is mine. Spending the weekend outdoors with no electricity or hot water; just you, your camping equipment, and the wilderness.

Here are some important tips to enjoy the most out of your camping trip:

1. Familiarize yourself with what the poisonous plants look like:

Poison Oak

Poison Ivy

2.

FamILY – Fam(I Love You)


How important is your family to you? To most, family is the most important aspect of their lives. Family sticks together through the good and the bad times. We grow with our family, we learn with our family and love with our family. But, what defines the word “family”? and what does being a part of a family mean? To most, the word family means a group of biological Mother, Father, Siblings, Aunts, Uncles, and Grandparents who come together a handful of times a year to celebrate the love we have for each other.

The true meaning of family is one person who loves another enough to call them family. In the modern day the word family has been bounced around and is no longer used in the traditional sense.

Top Tips for Loading your Pack and Store Container

Please do not overload your container. Each container can hold no more than 2000 pounds. Any heavier and our drivers cannot safely pick up the container.
Balance your load by evenly distributing items such as appliances & heavy furniture in both the rear & also the front of the Container
Pack heavier items on the bottom so they create a “base” for lighter and more fragile items on top.
Fill spaces between the legs of tables and chairs & other such spaces with your smaller items to maximize space.
If the container is not full, pack items at roughly the same height throughout, rather than having some areas packed much higher than others.

The Meaning Behind April Fools Day

Pack and Store delivery fee is $300+, APRIL FOOLS! As we all know, Pack and Stores delivery fee is a cost efficient $120.00 (GTA); what is April Fools day? Who started this crazy tradition? We wonder who is behind the days thats filled with jokes, tricks, and pranks.

History tells us that back in the 1500’s the classified “New Years Day” was celebrated on or around April 1st. In 1582 Pope Gregory XIII ordered a new calendar to replace the old “Julian Calendar” and told the French to celebrate New Years Day on January 1st. Many people either refused to accept the new date, or did not want to learn about it, and continued to celebrate New Year’s Day on April 1st.

Out with the old, in with the new!

Hibernation has been the only way us “Torontoarians” have gotten through this dreadful winter, it has come to easy for us to curl up by the fire, wrapped up in a fuzzy blanket with a coffee on hand. The weather is getting warmer and the days are getting longer but I ask myself; am I ready for spring? Am I ready to start spring cleaning?

Spring showers bring May’s flowers, the smell of spring is in the air! Why not have your home smelling like spring too? Spring cleaning is coming with a bang this season, many of us store or keep miscellaneous items around the house because a) it is too cold outside to throw anything out and b) we have this unnecessary need to keep everything just in case you will need it in the future.

Super Bowl 2015!!

*sound of opening chip bag, *freshly cracked beer can, and the crowd aka couch goers going insanely wild.

It’s that time of the year again sport fans, time for the annual Super bowl XLIX! This year’s contenders happen to be the New England Patriots vs the Seattle Seahawks who are heading to the Phoenix, Arizona  Stadium going head to head for the Vince Lombardi trophy, title of champions, and of course ultimate bragging rights.

For men this is the time to let loose revealing their inner patriotic couples, and for women well who doesn’t like the sight of buff men in extremely tight leggings?

With the ladies I know that the half time show is what we all look forward too each year and Katy Perry’s performance blew Ashlee Simpsons half time show back in 2008 out of the water!

Sports, Sports, Sports

Sports, sports, sports are always on the mind of Pack and Store employees. There is no better way to finish a hard working day than lounging on the couch with an ice cold beverage cheering on your favourite sport team (I believe it is in our Canadian blood).

This is an exciting month for sports because we have the NHL, NFL and Basketball going on all at the same time! There is never a dull moment at Pack and Store because there always seems to have an endless conversation on what team will take the win!

Our beloved Toronto Raptors are number one in their conference and are off to an amazing start at 8 wins and 2 losses!

Pack and Store’s NEW Location!!

Pack and Store the lovely portable storage facility has moved to their very own building! They have planted down at 1399 Kennedy Road in Scarborough, Ontario, the facility is climate controlled to store all your belongings in a heated facility in the winter time and ventilated in the summer.

In the past couple months the Pack and Store team have been working around the clock to ensure their customers belongings are kept safe and moved to their new storage home. It’s hard to believe that Pack and Store moved 600 containers out of their old facility on Weston Rd in just a couple of months.

The new facility has been great for our Pack and Store team.

Strange Self-Storage Stories

We don’t like to talk about the weirder things people decide to put in storage, but it takes all kinds. Over the years we’ve read about some of the bizarre scenarios self storage operators have faced when unlocking an abandoned unit, and taken note of some of the more unusual items that consumers have chosen to save for a rainy day. For example: Grandma: Yes, it’s happened. While more than a few people have secured the ashes of a loved one or pet in a self storage unit, one family in Florida even decided to keep the casket containing their grandmother in a self storage unit. The remains were found when manager Kevin McKeon called the family to let them know their belongings were going to be auctioned off unless they paid their bill, which had gone long overdue.
