We provide reliable, high-quality facilities paired with unmatched service and customer-focused staff. Reach out to us today to learn more about how the Bluebird difference sets us apart from our competitors and gives you a one-of-a-kind experience. 

  1. Store Supplies for Future Children

    Self storage units can help parents navigate big life moments. If you plan on adding to your family, you may want to hang on to baby supplies. Self storage can be useful when storing supplies, clothing, and toys from older children so you can reclaim them for the newest family addition when needed. 

    • Store Cribs, Strollers, and More

      Our storage facilities in East York have standard small, medium, and large storage units to choose from to ensure you have as much or as little space as you need. You can easily find the perfect size unit to house everything, whether you just need something to store a stroller or car seat in, or have cribs, changing tables, or other large objects.

    • Everything Safely Stored and Protected

      Garages and backyard sheds typically protect from sun and rain, but they’re often still subjected to temperature fluctuations as the seasons change. Our climate-controlled storage units carefully regulate the temperature of your unit and protect your belongings from extreme heat or cold to keep them in great condition.

  1. Reduce the Clutter of Out-of-Season Supplies

    Utilizing storage facilities in East York can provide a place to keep seasonal decorations and gear and your kids’ sports equipment when they’re in the off-season.

    • Comfortably Access Your Unit Year-Round

      Loading and unloading storage units in Leaside during bad weather can be exhausting but is sometimes a necessity. Thankfully, our indoor unloading area allows you to drive in, park your vehicle, and access storage units without facing the harsh elements outside. This setup lets you trade out seasonal supplies in relative comfort, no matter the time of year. 

  1. Use Space for Other Purposes

    You may need to repurpose a room and convert the spare bedroom into a study space for your children to do school work or turn a coat closet into a snack pantry. Still, it’s hard to utilize a room full of random, disorganized items accumulated over the years. That's where self storage comes in.

    • No More Junk Rooms

      Storing extra items in a self storage facility can clear out those rooms that accumulate junk and give you the space to organize it properly. Once you have everything neatly arranged in storage units in midtown Toronto, you can easily see what you have, know what you might need, and decide what needs to be removed. 

  1. Organize Supplies for Crafts and Hobbies

    Crafts and hobbies can take up a surprising amount of space, especially those that involve building or refurbishing things. Self storage units in Leaside are a great place to store projects you aren’t actively working on and keep supplies like reams of fabric or blank canvases that you buy in large quantities.

    • Stair-Free Trips

      Some hobby and craft supplies can be bulky, awkwardly shaped, or just plain heavy. Carrying them up and down stairs every time you need them can be a hassle. Bluebird’s storage facilities in East York feature convenient elevators and provide hand carts to make your trip a little easier.

  1. Temporary Storage for Renovations or Big Moves

    Renovations, remodels, and moves can be stressful for anyone, but they can be particularly difficult for parents with kids to consider. First, items need to be packed, organized, and moved out of the house. Then, they need to be moved back in and unpacked again. Storing everything in nearby self storage in Toronto can simplify the process and give you a more relaxed timeline.

    • Don’t Worry About Perfect Timing

      With Bluebird Self Storage, you won’t have to worry about timing everything perfectly to move your things from one place to another. Instead, you can access your unit 7 days a week and gradually bring everything over, then leave them there until renovations are finished or you’ve moved into your new home. No more trying to schedule movers for the perfect date or trying to empty an entire room in one day to meet someone else’s deadline.

    • Start With the Right Supplies

      You must ensure you have the right supplies any time you move. Our storage facilities in East York also offer packing supplies and boxes for all your moving and storage needs. So whether you’re just emptying a bathroom to remodel or are moving your entire household, we have a variety of supplies for you to choose from.

  1. Downsize as Your Kids Leave the Nest

    There will come a time when you’re kids are ready to move out. When they do, you may want to downsize to a smaller house or convert their old bedroom into a guest bedroom, workout room, or other space. Of course, you’ll need to store all their old belongings before you can do too much, though.

    • Out of the Way, But Within Reach

      Storage units in midtown Toronto provide a convenient way to store your kid’s old belongings somewhere safe but convenient. You and your children can easily access self storage in Toronto whenever you need to retrieve items. This frees up space for you to repurpose, reduces the number of things to move if you downsize, and keeps everything neatly stored for when your children are ready to use them in their own homes.

Simplifying Life as a Parent with Storage Facilities in East York

The hectic life of a parent can be simplified by using storage units in York to store equipment and supplies and free up space around the house for the kids to play. If your kids are grown, you can utilize self storage to store their old belongings until they’re ready to get them. Space can quickly become limited if you keep everything your family owns in your house. Thankfully, storage facilities in East York are a great option for adding convenient, accessible storage without needing a bigger home.

You, selected family, and any business associates can access your local facility by using our secure keypad entry using a personal security code. Individual units are protected by a lock that is only accessible by the customer. Only contacts you authorize will be able to access your unit.
