Preparing for Winter with Centron Storage

Preparing for Winter with Centron Storage

What an exciting time of year this is! Hockey has started, Santa Clause and his elves are slaving away in the North Pole, and the New Year is quickly approaching. Thinking about it brings chills down my spine… Literally! The temperature has been dropping, slowly but steadily. North York has even seen some negative weather. Time to put away our boat, Jet Ski, surf board… And everything else that makes the summer special. That includes our favourite lawn chairs and patio setup. Luckily, these items do not have to be stashed away in our basements or take up space in the garage or driveway (not to mention that extra garage space will come in handy to saving your car from…

How Centron Storage Saved Thanksgiving

How Centron Storage Saved Thanksgiving

Grandma Rosa always made the best thanksgiving dinners. All of us would go to her house, every year, skinny… And we would always leave feeling a hundred pounds heavier. All of us, being my parents, my husband, my children, my cousins, their children… It’s something we all used to look forward to. Sounds great doesn’t it? Some thing’s started getting in the way the last few years, however. Literally. Granny was never one to throw things out. She loves memories, and not ones she snapped on her iPhone (just kidding of course… she still uses a Nokia). Every time my brothers and I tried asking her to clean up a little bit, she said no.

Self-Storage for a Tidy North York Home

Self-Storage for a Tidy North York Home

Your new home looks so neat and organized for the first year. Maybe even two. But what happens when you’ve been living in the same house for multiple years? Or even better- decades? Let’s take a virtual tour of a typical four bedroom home.   The Top Floor: Strolling through your carpeted second floor hallway, everything looks great. Sure- the dog’s bed and toys get in the way sometimes. Little Tommy’s action figures sometimes end up in the way. But it’s pretty clean right? That is- until we head into the kids rooms. An old crib, a chest full of baby toys (that haven’t been touched in over a year), and a pile of small clothes that could quite possibly…
