Do you ever worry about what would happen if a flood or fire damaged your home?
Of course you do! That’s why we have home insurance. But for collectors, the concern is even greater.
After all, some folks have thousands of dollars put into their collections. Hockey cards, stamps, antiques, all of these could be in danger if something were to happen to their homes. And let’s not forget firearms! These are precious and expensive items that could be catastrophically damaged if exposed to extremely high temperatures or water.
That’s why we are big believers in NOT storing your firearms in your home. To ensure that your firearms remain in peak condition, the best place to store them is off-site. In other words, at GTA Guns’ Safe Storage facility in Newmarket, ON!
Let’s look at some of the most common at-home storage solutions.
Some people keep their firearms under their beds. Not only is that incredibly dangerous as the guns are easily accessible to children and to potential criminals, but it’s illegal to do so.
More experienced and serious firearm collectors might have invested in a gun safe. While this is a much more secure solution, there are also some big drawbacks. Safes are not only expensive, but they also take up a ton of space. Unless you live in a large home, that might not be an option.
But what about putting the safe in the basement? Again, you’re putting your firearms at risk of environmental damage. Imagine if a pipe burst? Unless your gun safe is 100% water-tight—and not all of them are—you’re going to be looking at some extensive rust damage.
GTA Guns Safe Storage
There are so many advantages to keeping your firearms stored off-site. The issue, of course, is that a truly safe storage location for firearms didn’t exist until recently!
When GTA Guns was starting out, we realized there was a real demand for safe storage of firearms. As firearm experts, we designed a solution to keep firearms in an optimal environment to maintain their condition. Our safe storage facility maintains optimal temperature and humidity levels, perfect for long-term firearm storage.
We also made sure that the entire facility was fully insured. While the chances are minuscule that anything could happen, we needed to ensure that every firearm stored would be fully covered.
Finally, we knew that people have different storage needs. For example, if you’re heading on vacation and don’t want your firearms to be left in your home, you can give them to us for short-term storage. Or if you have an extensive collection and have run out of room, you can ship the entire collection to us for storage. And when you want to get your firearms out of storage, all you need to do is give us a call to book a time.
Alternatively, you might want to try our new self-storage option. Here, you are given several security keys that enable you to come and go into our facility to pick up or drop off your firearms whenever you want. This option is ideal if you go on frequent hunting trips or enjoy blowing off steam at a firing range.
Whatever your firearm storage demands, GTA Guns can help! You can choose from:
- A long locker (15″ wide, 18″ deep, and 72″ high with 2 top shelves)
- A pistol locker (12″x12″x18″)
- General storage for long guns.
We’re incredibly proud that our 24/7 accessibility safe storage facility is the first of its kind in Canada. If you wish to store your guns and access them whenever you want, just call us. When it comes to maintaining the condition of your firearm collection, it is, by far, the best option. Simply pick a plan that’s best for you and your storage needs, and we can ensure that your firearms will remain in peak condition!
