Self Storage Facility
Our self storage facility is specifically designed to protect your valuable belongings from the fluctuations of our Halifax weather. We are equipped with heaters, air conditioners, humidifiers and dehumidifiers that work together to maintain a consistent relative humidity and temperature within the building.
A facility with computerized climate control is important because it ensures your belongings don’t get too hot, too cold or are exposed to too much, or too little moisture. For example, the glue within furniture is highly susceptible to changes in temperature. If it gets too hot or too cold this glue will expand and contract. As a result, you’ll find this will loosen the joints and cause damage to your furniture (this is especially important with antique belongings). If the relative humidity (RH) is too high your belongings will retain moisture creating an environment for potential mold growth.

A. We have 64 video surveillance cameras on site as well as motion detectors and alarmed units and doors. Our security system is monitored 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Each person who rents a space from us has a personalized secure access code that will allow him or her entry in through the gate (after office hours) and into the building. By entering this code, the alarm on their unit only is deactivated. This ensures that no one, even after they enter the building, can open any space that is not their own without sounding the alarm. Our computerized access system gives us up to date information about who has entered the building, how long they stayed and what doors they opened.

After that your lease will be automatically renewed every 4 weeks, for your convenience, until you let us know you are ready to move-out. Once you vacate your unit we will prorate your rent right to the DAY and send you a cheque for the time you didn’t use. You’ll only pay for the time that you store with us here at Storage Inn.

There are many different reasons you may need a storage space. Below are some of the most common reasons why people seek self-storage:
De-cluttering – it is amazing how much stress can be relieved by having clear and open space. You may want to de-clutter your home but not want to get rid of precious belongings. Storage Inn has space as small as 5 X 5 at affordable prices, perfect for storing your valuable belongings. Down-sizing – Maybe your children have moved out and you find that your home is too large of a living space but you have too much stuff to move into a smaller home. Use storage as a means of putting aside what is not necessary for your everyday life but keeping it easy to access and available at any time. Self-storage makes downsizing possible. Renovations – With storage terms as short as 4 weeks and very little notice needed for vacating we offer a simple solution if you are remodeling or redecorating. We can store your goods and keep them safe while you work on your home or office. As a bonus after the initial 4 weeks we prorate to the day to ensure you only pay for the time you need to store with us. Paperwork – Most businesses are required to keep files for many years and they can certainly take up valuable space in the office. Use Storage Inn to store these documents and free up space for business in the office. Hobbies – many hobbies like skiing, snowboarding, fishing, surfing and mountain biking have large pieces of equipment. Use Storage Inn to store your equipment on the off-season or between use. You don’t need to let your hobbies take over your home!
