The service was great. I am out of town and the office answered my email right away. They facilitated a space over the phone and on line. They even recommended a mover to help move the materials into the locker. It was great.

Extremely fast and easy to book a unit. Between starting the process and online and going by to pick up the key it took maybe an hour. The location is easy to navigate, it's nice and central in the city, and they keep it clean and well-lit. Not much more that you can ask for.

I have been a customer (as have several family members) of Nor-Shore Self Storage for years. I always recommend them to anybody who is looking for a storage unit. The staff are always friendly and warm, and the entire area is clean and secure. I would never deal with another storage facility. So happy with the service they provide!

Just know a few things going in. Their business hours are business hours (no weekends or evenings) but you can do most everything online. Also, most units don't have electricity - not even lights - so doing things after dark is tough. As long as you know that going in and it works for you they are great. Fantastic customer service and communications.

Susan Lozinski

Good place to store your belongings.

Kia Kordestani

We dealt with Erin the on site manager for providing a self storage unit to hold inventory off site during a 3 months business trip in Thunder Bay from Ottawa. Great valued space, very easy to deal with and friendly. Erin helped coordinate with our transport company for loading our inventory and cleaning out the unit.

Kia Kordestani

Very courteous, accommodating and friendly storage facility and management. We chose Nor-Shore Self Storage for keeping inventory during a business trip from Ottawa to Thunder Bay for three months and have nothing but good things to say about the business and staff. Erin the on site manager was very responsive and helpful in going above and beyond her responsibilities to help us coordinate moving our items with a transport carrier across the province to our head office. Allowing our driver access to pick up and load a shipment from our unit was facilitated thanks to her. Good rates, availability and central location makes Nor-Shore Self Storage our top choice for storing in Thunder Bay. Highly recommended for all your self storage needs.

Arlene lockman

I have used them often and have always had great service. Storage units are clean and the grounds are well kept. They have expanded so more storage spaces available and more variety of sizes. They also added a security fence and gate with a digital passcode lock for entry and exiting the grounds.
