Christmas Related Image

It looks like this year is going to be a white Christmas in the North York area. Certainly a change from the green we had grown accustomed last December. Of course, with every new snow fall that hits the North York area it is only fitting that we set our sights on the upcoming holiday season. December is traditionally the month of giving. Christmas, Hanukah, Kwanza and of course New Years are the occasions where we forego the previous year’s troubles and perfect the art of generosity. Centron Storage will be right with you this holiday season offering you the gift of affordability. Now offering the best price in the neighbourhood, you can get at 10×10 for up to 4…

Centron Storage Solutions & Memories: Store it, don’t throw it

Centron Storage Solutions and Memories

Remember that poster you bought Downtown last year? How about that lava lamp your buddy from college got you a few Christmas’ ago. Or that incredible poem your first love wrote you way back in the day. These memories are in danger when you leave them unattended for years in a garage or basement.

Luckily Centron Storage solutions will protect your loved items from natural damage- and you.   North York storage centres offer a great way to protect your most cherished moments at a very low affordable…

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…

Holloween item storage in Centron Storage

With Halloween just around the corner, the friendly Centron Storage staff have seen many of our renters coming and going with haunted supplies. Costumes, skeletons, lights, fog machines and toys have been making their way out of our secure storage units for the upcoming festivities. Given our renters feedback we see just how handy a self-storage unit can be for October 31st. The first on the list of beneficiaries: families. Especially large families with young children. Halloween decorations take up a lot of space when you fully engage yourself with the holiday. The zombie statues have to go somewhere, right? Families have been utilizing Centron Storage by storing their Halloween decorations and costumes in private storage spaces. Many clients have…

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. Well this year it got…

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…

Smart Packing: Preparing your Belongings

Smart Packing: Preparing your BelongingsSmart Packing: Preparing your Belongings

Packing your items is one of the most important parts of your storage adventure. This is because the way you pack will determine how big of a unit you need, how much time you will spend unpacking, how secure your items are, and the list goes on. Packing efficiently- and intelligently will not only protect your belongings but make your life infinitely easier down the road.   The Heavy Items: Organizing items by weight is of crucial importance. There are many considerations to make in regards to how heavy or light your items are. Every box you pack should have its heavier contents at the bottom. You wouldn’t put your watermelon over your dozen eggs when shopping; likewise you shouldn’t…
