A bit about Hanover, Ontario

A bit about Hanover, Ontario

Hanover is a small town located close to popular tourist destinations such as Blue Mountain, Collingwood and Kincardine. This area is well-known for its great ski resorts, beautiful sand beaches and farms. Located in cottage country, this means that many residents of this area have extra equipment such as skis and snowboards from the winter season.

Spring is the perfect time to store these items! While you’re busy tidying up the garage or shed, why not store your additional equipment until its needed? This will free-up space in your home, while also creating peace of mind that your items are safely stored in our newly renovated self-storage!

It’s a beautiful drive up to Hanover, where you can stop along the way at family farms to pick-up some fresh produce, baked goods, flowers, eggs, and even Maple syrup!

We look forward to meeting you soon!

3 Tips for Moving Day

We’ve compiled a short checklist of moving tips that you’ll definitely appreciate the next time you do a move. While moves can be exciting, they can also be stressful. Check out the list below to keep you calm, cool, and collected.

  1. Power clean your new place!:
    • Your new home is empty, so get cleaning! While this may seem rushed (moving trucks are on their way…) you’ll be glad you power cleaned the floors, bathrooms and appliances before mountains of boxes arrive at your doorstep.
  2. Big items first:
    • Focus on getting the clunky appliances and furniture in first, as this is the most strategic and difficult step of the moving process. These items typically are more costly and require more time to move, so get them out of the way first.
  3. 24-hour items next:
    • Focus on the necessities: what do you need to survive the next 24 hours? Clothing, simple bedding, toiletries, snacks and your electronics are the basics which you’ll be reaching for the most.

Current Obsession: Tiny Homes

One of the many reasons people use self-storage is that they’ve decided to downsize. For some of you, that may mean downsizing from a two-story home to a bungalow, or to a condo downtown. For others, this can mean a lot more.

A recent trend in homes are tiny houses, which are often residential structures under 500 square feet. This shift was propelled by a generation looking to be mortgage-free, with the added benefits of being able to pick-up-and-go, while leaving behind a smaller environmental impact.

We’ve collected a few of our favourite tiny home storage solutions, check them out below!

Check out some of our favourite ideas below:

Hanover Storage Hanover Ontario Mini Storage Solutions
Vertical Shelves

1. Declutter Counters: we all accumulate so many appliances over the years and end up without much usable counter space. Install shelves above your workspace to free up space! If you’re a coffee or cocktail lover, use these shelves to create a “vertical coffee station” or “vertical bar cart”.

The Glass Pantry

2. We love the idea of using glass containers for pantry organization, and there are lots of creative ways to label your collection, from glass etching, professionally printed labels, free-hand writing, and more.

The Walk-By Closet

3. This one if our personal favourite! The Walk-By Closet allows you to display your favourite shoes, bags, or outfits, all while making them easily accessible for you to grab-and-go, and freeing up your precious closet space.
