Company’s History

Shorty’s Storage, a family run business, was named after our Uncle “Shorty” in recognition of a long family history on the land that Shorty’s Storage was built on. It took two years of construction, removing over 30,000 cubic meters of topsoil, grading, packing and bringing in over 15,000 cubic meters of gravel, once again packing to over 96% compaction all in effort to insure a quality base for parking. Then for safety and security we installed over 1000 linear meters of fence, 900 meters of power line, 600 meters of data cable, 35 high powered LED flood lights, 14 laser curtain perimeter alarms, 4 high resolution security cameras, 2 keypad entry systems that will record all entry and exits onto the premises. In addition, 120 trees were planted, 800 meters of irrigation line were installed, a 5000 gallon septic tank was put into service for our customers use, and a 720 square foot storefront/office was setup. In 2011 Shorty’s opened its gate for business and has been providing quality storage service to Calgary and area at competitive rates ever since.

Shorty’s Storage currently covers over 16 acres that includes over 810 storage locations and is conveniently located just north of Stoney Trail between Deerfoot and Metis Trails.


At Shorty’s Storage, our mission is to be the leader in trailer and RV storage. We work to achieve this by continually striving to improve our service commitment through providing beneficial features, superior service, and quality infrastructure at convenient locations, all in order to insure a secure and pleasant storage experience for our valued customers 24/7, 365 days a year.
