Storage lockers are a simple investment. There’s often no heat, little maintenance, and if you want to make it a luxury unit you put in a light bulb.

One of the Fastest Growing Commercial Real Estate Sectors

NationWide Self Storage recognizes the fast growing demand for self storage properties in densely populated urban centres and retirement communities throughout Canada.

As the price tag on residential and commercial space goes up, more people than ever are looking to self storage for additional space. This demand goes beyond just trends. Everyday lifestyle transitions—such as marriage, divorce, retirement, estate settlements, moving, or the simple need to de-clutter a home—all contribute to the necessity of self storage.

Everyone Needs Storage!

The lack of available, suitable storage within a home, apartment or condo often results in the need for consumers to rent self storage lockers for both short and long term contracts. And it’s not just during times of transition—we all have a lot of stuff!
