Jam spots at an affordable rate

Whether you’re just starting off or have a solid group, finding a place to jam is one of the most important things for a band. How else will you bring the house down at your next gig or make it big without practice, practice, practice?

Garage band practicing

Unfortunately, your family and neighbors may not agree on the place you choose to jam. Garages and basements just aren’t built to keep all that awesome in one room. While you’re kickin’ it with your band mates, someone else is slamming on the door asking to keep the noise down.

With houses closer and closer together and built with thinner materials that don’t cancel noise, jamming in the suburbs these days isn’t all that easy. These spaces may also be small because they’re used for other things.

The alternatives aren’t any better. Renting a space on a regular basis comes at a premium. Then there’s soundproofing rooms – who can afford that?!

Have you ever thought of a self storage unit? You’d be shocked to know that many storage facilities offer units for band practice. You don’t need to worry about people asking you to turn it down or a cramped space anymore.

Rock on!

Downsizing doesn’t mean junking

Whether you’re downsizing your home, your life or your kids, you may find yourself in need of a storage unit in a hurry.



Maybe you’re retiring and need to move from your five bedroom country home to a condo downtown, closer to a popular neighborhood and friends. Perhaps your kids have moved out of the house, on to university and living lives of their own, and you don’t need that big space anymore.

Sometimes it isn’t your choice. You lost your job and need to downsize to a more affordable home or you’ve gone through a divorce and need to find a new, smaller space. You don’t always choose what life throws at you.

No matter what the case, downsizing doesn’t mean junking – don’t throw everything away! You can keep your belongings that you don’t necessarily access every day: items that remind you of your kids, a vinyl collection, art, power tools, etc… they can all be kept in a self storage unit.

You may need a small storage space, or something a little bigger. Self storage units come in a variety of sizes to suit your needs.

Although you’re downsizing your life, don’t downsize your stuff.

Summer storage on your parents’ dime

The semester is over and you need some R&R after finals, right? You’re planning your summer, when you realize – where do I put all my stuff? Bummer… you have to put your plans on hold.

Your parents are probably as excited about lugging your belongings back to their clean and tidy garage as much as you are.

A self storage unit offers a great alternative to traveling back and forth between school and home. You can keep your things close to your dorm room or apartment and access them easily when classes pick up again in the fall. Many storage facilities are located close to campuses across North America to make this even more convenient.

Don’t be too worried about cost. Storage facilities offer great discounts for students and deals to cater to your short term needs.

Maybe mom and dad would even be willing to chip in. Better yet, find a friend to share the unit… and the cost.

That way you can save a few bucks for the more important things during summer break.
