Private Storage Lockers


< 1 minute read

February 28, 2012

They’re large, they’re private, and they’re secure.  But best of all, private storage lockers are convenient!

Excuse the 18-pack of Dove Soap and the extra large bottle of Frank’s Red Hot in this video…

Hey, I never claimed to be a private person!  My life is constantly on display on this blog, so now you all know that I buy everything in bulk at Costco.

Who doesn’t?

I was a little worried when I bought my condo and I couldn’t find the deed for the storage locker, but alas, the locker and the parking space come together on one deed, and while that means that I can’t split them up and sell the locker if I wanted to, I don’t think it has any effect on the resale value of the property as a whole.

I’m absolutely spoiled beyond belief with this locker, and it’s the convenience that sets it apart from other lockers, big or small.

Going “down to the locker” used to be such a chore when it was on a different floor than both the apartment and the parking space, but now it’s a dream!

I know that a private, over-sized locker never shows up on anybody’s “wish list,” but I can tell you from experience that it’s a huge asset, and worth every penny if you’re breaking this down financially.

Show me one person who has ever said, “I like that condo, BUT, the walk-in closet in the master bedroom is just too big.  I don’t have that many clothes!”  Or somebody saying, “The centre island is too big – I don’t have that many pots and pans.”

Storage space, for clothing, kitchen appliances, or winter tires, is never in abundance.

If I could buy a second storage locker like the one in the video, I probably would…

    You have a storage room (not just a locker) with a locked door, and it’s located beside your parking spot and beside the elevator! This is a real asset in my opinion! could even be a man-cave!!

      Or you could charge someone to live in the box:

      % Bob settles in at the Broken Dreams Storage Locker facility.

      Raphael:Okay, here’s your storage locker, just the way you left it.
      Bob: Thank you, Raphael. Now, this is a ticklish question, but…
      Raphael: You want to live in the box? Cost you two bucks a day.
      Bob: Oh thank you, kind innkeeper. [hands Raphael some money]
      Raphael: You gonna wanna wake-up jab? [makes jabbing motion with a broom handle]
      Bob: Please.
      Raphael: No problemo.
