The Best Self Storage in Toronto

Posted by Chris Bateman / August 12, 2014

Self Storage TorontoSelf storage solutions in Toronto will save you from overflowing closets, being surrounded by stacks of important paperwork, or even allow you to squirrel away the contents of a family home if necessary. There are dozens of storage companies that will gladly keep your precious belongings safe from intruders, pests, and the ravages of winter ice storms or summer heat waves. The price you pay typically varies by size, features, and location: downtown units are unsurprisingly more expensive than ones in the suburbs.

Most self storage companies in Toronto also charge a mandatory monthly insurance premium, a set-up fee or refundable deposit. Because the billing period varies between companies, I've included an average price per day for a typical 50 square foot unit, which should make it clearer how much each charges to keep your stuff safe. Prices listed here do not include HST or any special offers, of which there are many available.

Here are the best self storage solutions in Toronto.

All Canadian Self Storage

All Canadian Self Storage

All Canadian Self Storage has provided a place for Torontonians to store their excess stuff since 1997, making the business one of the first of its kind in the GTA. The Toronto and Toronto West locations have a handy drive-through layout that allows vehicles to pull right up to the units, which range in size from 12 to 300 sq. ft. A 5 x 10 ft. unit (50 sq. ft., good for a small room,) costs $185 a calendar month close to downtown (an average of $6.24 a day,) $149 ($5.03 a day) in Etobicoke, $142 ($4.79 a day) in Toronto West, or $115 ($3.89 a day) in Scarborough.

Self Stor

Self Stor

Self Stor has two Toronto locations - one near Eglinton and Lawrence, and another close to Highway 427 and Dixie. Prices are slightly lower at the west end location for a typical 50 sq. ft. unit - $109 a month vs. $119. Both locations bill by calendar month, meaning prices are roughly $3.68 a day (west) or $4.02 (east.) Units range from 25 to 200 sq. ft. and are protected by CCTV. More »

Apple Self Storage

Apple Self Storage

One of Apple Self Storage's biggest assets is a downtown location on Adelaide St. between Bathurst and Spadina, which is ideal if you live in the area and don't want to be too far from your valuables. Alternatively, there's a west end location at Weston and Rogers roads. Both locations offer beefy security - electronic access, CCTV, individual unit alarms, security lighting, and a sprinkler system - in units between 25 and 300 square feet. Downtown, a 50 sq. ft. unit is $169 a month if you book online, which is $6.04 a day. In the west end, the same unit $115 ($4.11 a day.) More »

Centron Self Storage

Centron Self Storage

Prices start at $154 a month ($5.50 a day) for a 50 sq. ft. storage locker at Centron at Danforth and Dawes Road. A second location near Dufferin and Finch offers the same locker for around $114 a month ($4.07 a day,) depending on availability. Spaces at both locations range in size at both locations from 25 to 200 sq. ft and feature CCTV, motion detectors, and computer-controlled access. Note that a refundable deposit of $35 is required.

Some Self Storage facilities are only open during office hours. Others have 24 hour access. Check before signing any contract, depending upon your needs.
JFS_II / August 12, 2014 at 09:57 pm
welp, I guess you had to run out of ideas for "Best of" lists at some point eh?
Editor / August 13, 2014 at 09:11 am
They've done this list before.
Eye aye eye / August 13, 2014 at 10:24 am
This Best of List should have stayed in storage.

Compasscourage / August 14, 2014 at 02:23 pm
Storing stuff for my trip overseas. Can't imagine how anyone would be content with only accessing their stuff during business hours. Canadian Storage's big flaw! Super happy with Storage Mart... Clean, Secure, 24 hour access!
George / August 14, 2014 at 02:47 pm
Instead of other self storage services I always prefer Centron Self Storage,and as stated prices starts from 154$ is Not true,I have stored with Centron at $99 for 4 rentals that far less than $25 of All Canadian storage.
Karen / August 20, 2014 at 09:35 pm
Great service at All Canadian Self Storage. They have a very professional staff. Hands down best storage in the city.
Mary / August 21, 2014 at 03:56 pm
All Canadian Self Storage has been the best storage place hands down,

I know alot of other storage places think they can compete, but there is no competition.

All Canadian self storage never locks you into a contract, I needed storae for 10 days and they were able to accomodate me with no hidden Fees!

I dealt with Tracey at the Toronto West location, her service was excellent!

Don't Waste your time with the other guys, this is the place you want to be.
Javier @ Cargo Cabbie / August 22, 2014 at 02:42 pm

Julia / November 14, 2014 at 07:17 am
I came to pick up a truck at Weston road, U-Haul didn't book me into the appropriate time slot, so I called in to the location and spoke with Annessa. Her service was excellent, she was able to move her schedule around for me, so I got the truck I wanted at the time I wanted.

Excellent service provided by Annessa.

Hannah / January 26, 2015 at 09:54 am
Big fan of Infinity Closet! Didn't want to pay huge $ for a huge space - just needed to store some excess textbooks, sporting equipment, boots and a couple of jackets during the summer b/c my 600sqft condo is too small to hold all of my stuff. Was super cheap, convenient (they drop off/pick up the storage bins from you anytime between 8am-10pm) and was the perfect fit for my stuff. I'm going to use them again this summer when I sublet my apartment and go travel for a bit.
Justin / February 2, 2015 at 09:38 am
Kyle & Rehan are great! Super helpful! Facility at brantford is nice, cool and clean. Prices are reasonable-I've checked. U-Haul is a bonus. Definitely Recommended!:) -JCruz

I rented a small unit at the All Canadian Self Storage on Kennedy. They people were very nice and knowledgeable on moving and storage.
Dan Smith / February 5, 2015 at 05:27 pm
I've used the All Canadian Self-Storage on Laird a few times and they've been great every time. The fact that you can drive your truck right through the building puts them above the competition automatically. Being pro-rated on the move in and move out is another huge bonus
Containers 4U / February 9, 2015 at 05:50 am
Best self-storage is having your own shipping/cargo container on your property. Storage/shipping containers are perfect for anything from your favorite automobile to your favorite toys like snowmobiles or ATVs. Whatever you need to store used shipping containers are perfect and cost effective. For lowest delivered prices in the market on used shipping containers visit us at or call us at 1 (855) 767-3949

All Canadian puts all the others to shame! I walked in with low expectations based on my brutal past experiences with other Storage facilities * cough * Dayton * cough*, and walked out with a whole new outlook on the self storage scene. The Beechgrove location offered me refreshments, a ride on their cool golf cart, and provided me with tools to help me and my kids with the move.

Cheers All Canadian!
Erroll / March 24, 2015 at 09:45 am
I recently used the mobiles storage. It was really easy and fit snug on my driveway. To be honest, it made my kitchen renovation go smooth. I had used it for 3 weeks and it worked out to be comparable in price to other storage places. Try them out, I reccommend.
Philly replying to a comment from Charles. F / March 25, 2015 at 08:49 am
The staff where I had my stuff didn't care if you stayed or left as long as they get as much money from you as possible. The company I'm talking about is Secure Self Storage on Dufferin and Finch. They don't send you notices of price increase and then tells you to take it or leave it and tries to get every penny from you. Even after I told them I was leaving they tried to charge me an extra week. Unbelievable.
