    In your Words


    I've been a customer here for years. Nice staff. My unit had a leak and they quickly found me another one. They have the best price for the size of storage units in and around Hamilton.

    From beginning to end, my experience was great! It was a nice clean space and the process for storing was straightforward and easy. Also, being a female, I did feel safe and secure enough to visit my storage at night which was a huge plus. I would 100% recommend this place to anyone!
