Different Kind of Self Storage in Toronto

self storage in toronto

Valet Storage is not like other self storage in Toronto. What sets us apart from the rest is our unique pickup service. Instead of you having to rent a truck and load all of your items and transport them to the storage facility only to have to unload it all, we take care of everything for you.

Our Toronto storage company brings the unit straight to your door. We then take the time to carefully shrinkwrap and blanket any furniture and breakables. Next, we load them up along with any boxes you have to store and then we drive the truck to our indoor, temperature controlled facility for you.

Safe and secure self storage in Toronto

When you store your belongings with Valet Storage you are choosing a safe and secure location. We lock your unit for you and it is stored in a Toronto storage facility that is monitored 24/7. You never have to worry about your items being stolen and we don’t allow people to store things like food, so pests are taken care of as well.

Self storage doesn’t get easier than this and we should add that you never get charged for travel time. We only charge for the time at your home loading your items, unlike your typical moving company.

If you want self storage in Toronto that you can trust, that is convenient and affordable, you need Valet Storage. To learn more about our services or to book an appointment, give us a call today at 1-888-670-6794. We would be happy to answer any and all questions you may have.

Transform Your Home With These 3 Colour Tips

transform your home with colour

Whether you are moving out of your old home, moving into a new one, or both, you will need to take a long hard look at the shades on the walls. You’ll find it’s easy to transform your home with the right colour tips.

When moving out you need to consider what the person who may be purchasing your home likes and when you are moving in you need to consider what will make you feel comfortable and at home. Both are important and they can be wildly different than one another.

Here are some tips that you can use in both situations:

Follow colour trends

The paint industry announces colour trends each year. These pretty color trend reports are generally filled with photos of the colors, both swatches and in homes. Unless you are starting from scratch you are not going to want to use all of them each year, that would be an awful lot of work.

It is a good idea, however, to pick one and incorporate it to transform your home with colour. You don’t have to limit yourself to paint either, you might want to incorporate the shades through embellishments and accessories.

Be brave with colour tips

Don’t let yourself get scared off of the vibrant colors if you are choosing them for your own home. You might want to steer clear of them if you are trying to sell your home though. In that case, you will want to stick to easier to swallow colors, they tend to help homes sell better.

Again, you don’t have to work in brave colour tips through paint alone, you can also put up some vibrant artwork to bring a little life into any room.

Fall in love with monochromatic colour schemes

These are fantastic when you are selling your home as most people will find it easy to imagine their own items filling up the space because there isn’t really anything to clash with.

This type of colour scheme lends itself to many styles in terms of decor and artwork.

Keep these top three colour tips in mind and you will sell your old home quickly and find it easy to move into your new one for the long haul.

If you haven’t yet found a professional moving company and you live in the Greater Toronto Area, give Valet Storage a call. We can help and we offer highly competitive rates and unique services.

Declutter Your Whole Home In Under 1 week

declutter your whole home

We just came across this great article from someone who managed to declutter their whole home in less than one week. That’s pretty good time when you think about it. They give great detail on how they managed it all too, which is very helpful for the uninitiated.

Here’s how to declutter your whole home in less than a week:

HOW I DECLUTTERED MY ENTIRE HOUSE IN SIX DAYS

Day One: The living room, main bathroom, and my bedroom closet.

Day Two: The kitchen (Lily and I spent hours cleaning and organizing our spice and baking shelves to create a workable system and it has been well worth the effort!).

Day Three: The girls’ bedroom and the holiday storage closet.

Day Four: The schoolroom.

Day Five: The rest of the master bedroom (which included everything except my closet), plus Nathan’s walk-in storage closet.

Day Six: The basement…READ MORE HERE…

Now that you know how to declutter your whole home fast you will be able to get a good start going.

Home Organization: Lies You Tell Yourself

home organizationEver wonder why you are always looking at a cluttered home and how you can declutter better? There are some lies that most of us tell ourselves that are doing us a disservice.

It’s important when you are trying to change anything in your life that you closely examine your thoughts and feelings, you might not realize it but this is especially true when it comes to home organization.

Common lies that do us harm in terms of home storage:

LIE 1: If I pare down my wardrobe I will have nothing interesting to wear.

TRUTH: By having fewer clothes you can afford to buy better items that you can use to coordinate more exciting outfits.

 

LIE 2: If I put off my home organization and decluttering I will be more motivated to get it all done at once.

TRUTH: If you leave things to the last minute when guests are coming or you just procrastinate in general you are more likely to feel overwhelmed and never get what you want accomplished.

 

LIE 3: If I throw that item out or give it away I will be sorry I did down the road.

TRUTH: The majority of the items you keep around for a rainy day are the ones you don’t really need at all. On top of that fact, if you keep everything, when you need one specific thing chances are good you won’t be able to find it.

 

LIE 4: If I throw those papers out I will lose something important.

TRUTH: These days, with the internet and many records being kept online, bank records for example, most of the papers you have laying around aren’t necessary to keep. The one exception is if you own a business. If that’s the case, talk to your accountant and/or lawyer to find out what you need and what you don’t. It’s almost certain that at least 80 percent of what you have been keeping is unnecessary.

 

LIE 5: I can’t work on home organization until I get special shelves and organization tools and I can’t afford them right now.

TRUTH: You don’t need anything like that to stay organized. Are they nice to have? Sure, but they are far from necessary. You can browse around our blog and find hundreds, no, thousands, of home organization tips you can use to keep your home decluttered and very few of them need anything special.

 

If you are looking for some off-premises Toronto self-storage, look no further than Valet Storage. We will come to your home, pick up what you want taken away and drive it all to our indoor temperature controlled facility. Nothing is more convenient and our rates are highly competitive.

The following article is going to teach you everything you need to know about unpacking after moving in the most efficient and fastest way without breaking anything or having anything get lost in the shuffle.

HOW TO UNPACK A HOUSE IN TWO DAYS

In the 14 years my ex-husband was home, we moved over 30 times. You most likely don’t know anyone else that can pack a Uhaul as good as me (if it didn’t fit, I didn’t get to keep it!) nor do you know someone who can put up a home as quick (because I’ve literally done it SO many times!)

Moving is hard. It’s a lot of work, you get tired, it’s physically and emotionally draining. Then you get to the new house, look around at all your stuff and have NO IDEA where to put it all. If you are planning your next move, these tips will drastically help you know exactly how to unpack a house in two days…READ MORE HERE…
