Storage Unit hallwayIn the early 80s, we, the owners, noticed that the Beltline, Victoria Park, and Downtown Calgary were about to lose the only storage facility in the area. We swung into action to find a solution and to provide Calgarians with a local, completely customer-focused solution. In 1982 we opened the doors to Downtown Self Storage.

Our number one goal is to reduce the stress and clutter in your life by affordably extending your living space. You may not have the money or permit allowance to build an addition, but you can rent storage space to have an extra closet, garage, place for your sports equipment, secure storage for valuables, a place for inventory management, and more. From the start, we’ve provided a wide variety of lockers and units to ensure you can get as much, or as little, storage as you need. We walk you through the options, allowing you to size up or down as needed as your life or business change.

The facility itself is very special, as it is a vintage Calgary landmark. It was built in 1906 with additions added in 1926 and 1956. The elegant façade is not diminished by how strong and sturdy this building is – we jokingly call it the “bomb shelter!” There’s a lot of character here as we retained the original hardwood floors in the foyer and the classic bannisters on the stairways. Coming here to this beautiful building is never a chore. It’s like visiting a historical monument – one that is also housing your valuables.

Don’t be fooled, however. This historical look and feel complement the upgrades needed for the best storage facility in Calgary. The lighting is bright, the freight elevator is oversized, and the loading dock is hydraulic. Two additional static loading docks easily accommodate everything from small vehicles to large moving vans.

Furthermore, cleaning, pest control, and sanitation have been in place since day one. In addition to daily building cleanings, empty lockers are disinfected every day. In fact, one of the most frequent praises we get is appreciation for the cleanliness and brightness of our downtown Calgary storage facility.

As long-term Calgary residents, we feel it is important to give back to our wonderful community. As such, a portion of every monthly locker rental is happily donated to veteran and seniors’ societies.

We enjoy being your local, family-owned and operated choice for storage in downtown Calgary and invite you to visit and see our difference. You won’t be disappointed.
