Mobile Storage or Traditional Self-Storage?

The storage industry is constantly changing, and the way people use storage is too. At XYZ Storage, we have been around for over two decades and have seen just how much the industry has changed right in front of our eyes. Storage is no longer seen as a place to store your stuff. It can be seen as adopting a new lifestyle whether it is storing your belongings, so you can make room for a new addition to your family or a place to store your seasonal equipment. We have been industry game-changers with offering our self-storage and mobile storage options to individuals and businesses that are looking for storage options. When looking at whether you should choose mobile or self-storage there are a few factors that you should consider.

Customizability and Flexibility

Mobile Storage

Mobile storage allows you to customize when you want to have your mobile container delivered to you. It also gives you the flexibility to decide when you want your mobile storage unit to be picked up and brought back to one of our self-storage facilities. You can also decide when you want your belongings back and we offer the flexibility to do just that!


With traditional self-storage, there are a variety of different sizes of units for you to choose from. It is customizable to your needs depending on how much or how little stuff you plan on storing. On our website, we provide you with the size units including compact (12-25 square ft) which can be used for either personal or business storage. We also give you an idea of what you can place in that size unit. For example, our compact unit can be used to store tools, photo albums, sports equipment, luggage, and storing documents. If that is too small for you, check out our small, medium, and large size offerings. There is always going to be a size that will fit your lifestyle and your storage needs.

Accessibility and Convenience

Mobile Storage

Mobile storage is extremely convenient for those that do not plan on leaving the house. We at XYZ Storage deliver the unit to you and all you have to do is fill it up with your belongings and let us know when it is ready to be picked up and brought back to our self-storage facility. When do you get it back? You get it back whenever and wherever you want. We work on your schedule and whatever is convenient for you.


We have over 6 locations in Toronto and GTA including Toronto Downtown, Toronto Midtown, Toronto West, Scarborough, Etobicoke, and Mississauga. Our XYZ self-storage facilities can be just a thirty-minute drive or maybe a five-minute walk away, talk about convenient! You can come by anytime as it is easily accessible, and our locations have 24/7 access available for you to open your storage unit at your convenience.

Work and Effort

With both or mobile and self-storage options, we try our best to make the process as seamless as possible.

Mobile storage

Our mobile storage option provides you the gift of not having to leave your home and lug all your belongings to your storage unit. We do most of the work for you by delivering the unit to your home or business and store the mobile storage container for you. All you really have to do is load your belongings into the container and that is about it.


With our self-storage option, you have to bring your belongings to one of our self-storage facilities either on your own using your own vehicle or you can rent one from us. We have brand new XYZ Storage trucks at our Eastern location located in Downtown Toronto if you want to check them out. We want to make your storage experience as seamless as possible, so think of us as your one-stop-shop as we offer moving supplies and truck rentals.
