Mission Self Storage.

Safe, secure and accessible: Off-site storage for all your essentials

9 questions to ask to find the right storage options for your needs

Whether you’re between homes, lack shop floor space for additional product, or need somewhere to store that ATV, sometimes off-site storage is a must.

But regardless of what you’re locking away, knowing your goods are safe, secure and accessible is key.

To have it also be affordable is even better.

“People use self-storage for many different reasons,” notes Lance Hill, owner of Mission Self Storage. “Often homes simply don’t have the storage space for seasonal items, household goods or recreation equipment. Or we’ll see businesses without room to store all the stock they bring in. Self-storage lets them move those items out to make room for what they need right now.”

Considering self-storage? Lance offers a few considerations to look for:

  1. Where will your belongings be stored? For example, Lance offers a very secure facility with 49 clean, new, all-steel units. The 20 x 8 x 8-foot storage units are also insulated and have proper ventilation.
  2. When can you access your unit? Look for daily access, 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. and seven days a week, to your belongings.
  3. How accessible is the unit? Centrally located, Mission Self-Storage lets you drive right up to your storage unit for easy loading and unloading.
  4. Does the site allow storage? Not all sites are permitted for self storage, which means the facility could potentially be shut down. Mission Self Storage is a fully permitted site that meets all current self-storage specifications.
  5. Do they take reservations and what are the requirements? Mission Self Storage accepts reservations with manager approval, for example, with the reservation deposit converted to a damage deposit and first month’s rent upon possession of the unit.
  6. How can you pay? If convenience is important, Mission Self Storage offers secure, easy-to-use online payment software so you can manage your account on your time, or pay by post-dated cheques or e-transfers.
  7. How does the damage deposit work? At Mission Self Storage, by providing 30 days’ notice that you’ll be vacating your unit and the unit being left in clean condition, the deposit will be refunded in full.
  8. How secure is the site? Look for a fully secured site, with seven-foot-high barbed wire-topped chain link fencing plus night lighting, monitoring and video surveillance,
  9. And the containers? At Mission Self Storage, instead of management holding the keys to the unit, you supply the lock and keep all keys, and can choose from various types of locks. As for the storage units themselves, “These are new, steel containers – they’re very secure,” Lance notes.


Mission Self Storage is open daily from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. For more information, visit online at missionselfstorage.net, email info@missionselfstorage.net or call at 604-855-2900.
