During this emotional and traumatic time its important that many aspects of the loss process are taken care of. Self Storage and North Shore Mini Storage has been helping with this for many years.

Self Storage & Personal Loss


Sorting through loved one’s possessions comes with many emotions and attachment to items. Asking yourself to sort through and decide what to throw away and keep is too much immediately. What you need to do is box up the items as neat as you can and store them away. Take the time you need to think about the items and understand yourself what you want to keep them or not.

Finding Possessions

A vast majority of people own a self storage locker. So what does this mean when someone you love passes? You need to know if they had one. Start by calling the local companies and asking. If you find that there is one, you must first get the legal paperwork in order before visiting the self storage company. You need to have legal ownership over their estate, then we can open the locker to you.
