Storage Rental in Calgary

To choose the perfect Calgary storage rental, it is important to look at factors such as the type of storage, the amount of space you need, whether climate control is necessary for your items, convenience and of course cost. Let’s take a look at how storage rental in Calgary works and the options that are available to you.

Calgary Self-Storage Rental


There are many reasons for needing a self-storage rental in Calgary, for example you may be downsizing your home, in the process of moving, or you just need to put away seasonal items during the winter and summer. Whatever your storage needs, there are many options available.

If you haven’t stored items before, you may wonder how exactly self-storage works. In the simplest terms, you rent storage space by the month and take your items there to store. Some factors that you'll have to consider are:

  •  Where is the storage facility located? 
  • What is the quality of security?
  • Is it heated or not?
  • How will you get your possessions to the facility?
  • Do you have the time and assistance to move all your things on one day?

Types of Storage Facilities in Calgary

There are many different types of storage facilities in Calgary, depending on your needs and budget. The most commonly known option for storage are public storage lockers. These come in a variety of shapes and sizes and can either be outdoors, drive up or located inside a heated building to ensure climate control. On the other hand, there are more flexible options such as mobile storage units. At Pak-n-Stor, we bring our QuikPak storage containers right to your home so you don't need to rent moving trucks, drive to a storage facility and unload all your things into a storage locker.

Calgary Public Storage

Renting a public storage locker is the traditional way of accommodating your storage items. Normally, you pay a monthly fee for the space, which will vary depending on the size and quality. For example, some Calgary public storage spaces are outdoors and are only suitable for certain types of items that do not need to be protected from the weather. This is suitable for storing motorhomes, boats, and other large items that are okay to be left outside for long periods of time.

For items that need to be protected from the elements, you can choose to rent covered storage lockers. Some storage lockers are heated, while others are not. If your belongings can be damaged from the cold of Calgary's winters, you'll want to rent heated storage.

One of the biggest downsides of public storage lockers is that in order to transport your items, you will likely need to rent a moving truck to get your belongings there. After loading your truck, you'll also need to unload everything to put it into the storage locker. That is effectively moving your things twice on the same day. Plus, if you only fill up half the storage space available, you still pay the full price.

Mobile Storage Units in Calgary

If you are looking for more convenience and less hassles, mobile self storage units save a lot of time and trouble. With Pak-n-Stor mobile self storage, you rent as many storage units as you need, which we deliver to your home. The storage lockers can be placed in different locations around your home for ease of loading.  Take as much time as you need to pack. There is no need to get it all done on one day. Then, we take the mobile storage units to our heated storage facility. If you are not sure how much storage space you need, ask us to bring an extra storage unit or two. You only pay for the ones you use. This is the perfect Calgary storage rental option if you don’t want the hassle of moving your items, while making sure that they are stored in a secure heated warehouse.
