Storage Auctions reveal hidden treasures


Storage unit auctions are a hot trend that doesn’t seem to be slowing down.  Elle has been privileged to host several episodes of Storage Wars Canada at select locations, but you may not know that we also hold public auctions on a regular basis.


On Wednesday May 10, Planet Storage hosted a Customer Appreciation Event and Storage Auction

When rent is not paid for a storage locker, and the facility is not successful in getting the account up to date, or in contacting the renter, the units are opened for bids by a professional auctioneer.  Mostly professional, and sometimes just independent treasure hunters, will purchase the contents, hoping for an amazing find for just a few dollars, and if you’re lucky, you just may stumble upon something valuable or amazing.



Elle and the Tiffany love affair


We love Tiffany!

Elle has always made a commitment, not only to our customers and clients, but to our valuable staff members who work hard every day to keep our organization running smoothly.  We’re a team, a family. Not only do we work together, but we play together too!

Owner and operator, Janet Whittle-Bailie, believes in hard work, good will and great relationships. It’s important to her that the Elle family feels valued, included and important.

All the ladies at Elle wear matching Tiffany bracelets, because isn’t the work day just a little nicer with a bit of bling?

Old-Meets-New at Planet Storage


Planet storage in the heart of Toronto’s Junction district is certainly one of the most diverse and unique of all the Elle facilities.

Originally the Viceroy Factory, the structure was built in 1929 as a rubber factory and manufacturing facility. It was named to the Heritage registry in 2006  as a Historical Contextual building.

Today, Planet storage is an amazing mix of preserved historic features like exposed brick and period architecture, combined with state-of-the-art self storage facilities, warehousing units, studio business suites housing artists, fashion, photography and startups, as well as the wildly successful FreshBooks. The location also offers bulk storage space, climate controlled units and seasonal storage options.

We also house 10,000 square feet of bulk storage space that has been used for everything from weddings, special and corporate events to movie and photo shoots!  Planet has had the privilege of seeing itself transformed for all manner of artistic functions and industry occasions such as the RAW Design party where the blank canvas of the space was a perfect backdrop for their RAW Materials event.

Visit us at the Planet Storage location at 1655 Dupont St. Toronto for a tour of this piece of Toronto history.
