A lot of University students in the city are breathing a sigh of relief as their exam schedules and school year's are winding down. As the school term comes to an end, many will be returning home to work throughout the ''off season''. For these students the question now becomes what do I do with everything in my apartment or dorm room as I head home for work or for a much needed vacation?

If you plan on heading home after exams it can be a burden having to move books, desks and furniture out of your school space and all the way back home where there may not be adequate room to accommodate these items used while attending classes.

Project Storage - Storageville - Winnipeg, Manitoba
By StorageVille / Storage Reasons / 0 Comments

Summer is on its way and many of us are eager to get started on overdue home renovations or to start new upgrades in our homes and businesses.

Whether you're upgrading a basement, remodelling an office or fixing up a living room to meet your taste, it's important that you're allowing yourself enough space to get the job done comfortably and that you're keeping your existing valuables safe.

Storing your possessions at StorageVille can be an easy way to free up space for a home renovation. Redoing a basement living room? Rather than move heavy and awkward items like furniture, area rugs and boxes repeatedly while trying to get the job done, store them in a safe and secure locker until the job is complete and avoid the hassle of constantly lifting and moving your belongings.

Whether your project is of monumental proportions or just a little touch up, there is potential for a mess to be made. If you're painting, stirring up dust with drywall or taking on another kind of potentially messy renovation, it's a good idea to ensure your prized posessions are protected properly. Maybe it's a collection of old photographs in a box, perhaps a painting you're fond of... if it's important to you, it is a good idea to store it in a unit where it will be safe and can be easily retrieved at a later date.

While storing can help you preserve your precious items and free up space for your projects it can also help you save money on your renovation! Found an item on sale? Store it in a locker while planning your upgrade and bring it out when you're ready!
Storing can make your home or business renovation a lot less stressful and it's easy to do.

1) Store at StorageVille when you want to start your project and don't forget to take advantage of the free moving van.

2) Use your locker on a month to month basis for as long as the project takes.
3) Retrieve your stored items when it's convenient.

Clear Out The Space For A Man-Cave - StorageVille - Winnipeg, Manitoba
By StorageVille / Storage Reasons / 0 Comments

Becoming more and more popular the "Man Cave", "Man-Space", and "Manctuary" whatever you want to call it...

Why are they creating this space? Men say that they are at the end of their rope from arguing with their partner at least once or twice a week about the space their possessions take up. But it's not all doom and gloom. Men believe that having a place where they can store their possessions and indulge in their pastimes is actually beneficial to their relationship.

Both men and women can benefit from this time apart. Why?

"Because this freedom and space is key to a healthy and balanced relationship."

With a rise in the number of couples co-habiting, space is more precious than ever and men are demanding a private sanctuary to call their own.

Here are some suggested steps to take if you’re in the business of building a "Man Cave":

Step 1: Identify the space
100% yours to own and decorate - Whether it be a garage, basement, den, attic or a study just be sure it's secluded and has a lockable door. Make it your own; decorate it, use it however you chose.

Step 2: Clear it out and outfit it
Clear out all boxes, furniture, everything must go... (*need somewhere to store your items? Call us first!) Take your room and give it a good clean first then locate the focal point of the room. What do you want to put there?

Step 3: Paint it!
A fresh coat of pant does wonders... stick with dark blues, greens, grey, or reds with accents of black and brown.

Step 5: Stock it!

Just like a house you need to invite people over and show off your new digs. Invite some buddies over and watch their amazement... followed by jealousy!

You're welcome!
