The Three Little Pigs: How Centron Storage Helped Them Move to North York

The Three Little Pigs

It was a rough month for Bacon, Ham, and Sausage. The Big Bad Wolf just huffed and puffed and blew their homes down. With two brothers homeless, they decided it was time for change. Sausage sold his brick house and made just enough money for the brothers to move to Toronto, where Uncle Pork agreed to buy them all brand new homes. Little did they know, the Big Bad Wolf is also in town. The brothers arrive in Toronto on a cold chilly May evening. Uncle Pork greets them in the airport. “Sorry boys, the houses won’t be ready for another week. The contractors are taking longer than expected.” He also warns them to be careful, because the Big Bad…

Why Self-Storage Makes Moving in North York Simple

Self-Storage Units

No matter how good (or bad) the housing market is, one thing will never change. That is the hassle of dealing with an abundance of boxes, moving companies, and maybe even garage sales. Whether downsizing or upgrading, you’re in a constant state of vacation. That is, everything you own is constantly moving from box to shelf, shelf to box. Even in the simplest of moves, like from a house to a condo, an annoyance will occur. First you have to get rid of all your excess clutter. Obviously a condo can’t fit as much as your old house! This can be done through a garage sale, donations, or gifting to friends. Sounds simple enough, right? Once you’ve gotten rid of…

Why Self-Storage is a Good Idea for Students

Going on an extended vacation? Have an internship? Moving between residences and houses? Heading home for the summer break? It all sounds great until you realize one thing: you have nowhere to keep your things! Student storage is a seriously unaddressed issue in universities across Canada.

It certainly isn’t all going on the airplane or that four hour car ride back home. It doesn’t have to be this way though. Centron Self Storage recognizes this dire issue and is making an effort to reach out to those left-behind post-secondary students. We…

Spring Cleaning in Toronto: Thank You Self Storage!

Spring Cleaning in Toronto: Thank You Self Storage

She was here for a long time. She gave us movie nights under the blankets. We drank hot chocolate because of her. We spent hundreds of dollars on Canada Goose jackets to shield ourselves from her. She may have even given us that cold our mother always warns us about. Some would say she overstayed her welcome. Eight months is certainly a long time. Winter, we bid you farewell. Our better friend, Summer is here. With the weather in Toronto finally turning around (and boy has it done so nicely) it’s time to start cleaning up our homes. It appears over the last two weeks of warmth that our temperature roller coaster is over. We no longer have to be…
