Self Storage During the Summer

With the beginning of summer, most Barrie and Orillia residents leave their indoor winter habits and routines behind them, turning to an active and outdoor lifestyle. Who doesn’t enjoy the summer heat and cooling off in the lake? The gorgeous weather encourages people to de-clutter and organize their homes. Whether you are doing some annual cleaning or if you want to simply regain additional space in your home, or if you are in the middle of moving into a new home, additional space can be extremely valuable.

Self-storage can be an ideal service for those looking to reclaim a closet or spare room in their Barrie or Orillia home, and is  perfect for storing your precious belongings securely while you make the transition into your new home. The convenience of renting a storage unit makes summer storage a very popular solution for people each year.

At Heated Self Storage in Orillia we have a selection of sizes for every possible requirement. Decide exactly what you wish to store, and we can assist you in selecting the right sized unit for the benefits you’re after.

Here’s a quick guide as a reference:

  • Small Units (5×5, 5×10): Smaller storage units are perfect for basic storage needs; if you have seasonal clothing to put away or decor that doesn’t require much space, these units are typically the best choice. These units are built to hold at least one or two larger items as well, such as a snow blower.
  • Medium Units (10×10, 10×15): Medium-sized storage units are great for storing college dorm belongings for the summer time. They’re large enough that one can store furniture, a mattress, and several boxes.
  • Large Units (10×20, 10×30): The largest storage units offered are similar to the size of a standard garage, meaning they offer plenty of storage room. Because of their generous size, these units are more than capable of storing motorized seasonal vehicles such as snowmobiles or ATVs.
