What to Put in Self-Storage, What to Leave Out

It’s important to remember the few items that don’t do well in a self storage unit. After all, the safety of your belongings and those of others at our facility is paramount. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to ask one of our experienced storage consultants for not only guidance on what you can keep, but advice in finding an alternative location for any materials that aren’t suitable for All Canadian Self Storage. Vehicles and Extra Tires: Many consumers choose to store an extra car or truck in a self storage unit. Clean, dry and protected from the elements, it’s a great way to preserve a costly investment or collectible. Nevertheless, we recommend ensuring your vehicle remains in operable condition at all times, with no leaks or other issues that make it un-driveable.

2nd Annual Cigar/BBQ Party – September 18th, 2014

It doesn’t come as much of a surprise to those that know Hal Spradling that he loves to be involved and help where he can in his community. Hal brings this love of community support to his company, All Canadian Self-Storage, and by extension all of the team members. There are numerous organizations around the GTA that Hal and his team have raised funds and awareness for over the last decade.
One of the many community charities that All Canadian Self Storage has raised money for is Frontlines Community Centre. Frontlines Community Centre is a wonderful organization; they help the youth with before and After School activities, such as breakfast programs and organized afterschool activities.

Above and Beyond!

In this issue we are recognizing Aaron Baksh (Assistant Manager for Pack and Store). This past Sunday around 9:30am our driver Fahad called in a panic when he was using the moffett to take one of two containers off the truck; one of the hoses came undone and hydraulic fluid was pouring out on the customers drive way. Fahad knew what had to be done and he began cleaning the oil as much as he could.

He called Aaron (this being Aarons day off) to come help him out as the Moffett was unable to be operated, there were no questions asked and Aaron was on his way. When Aaron arrived almost all of the oil was cleaned up but the customer wasn’t very happy.
