Titanium Storage is owned and operated by husband and wife team Ricky Moses and Josie Martin, long time residence of the Yukon, both raised in Mayo Yukon. Ricky and Josie appreciate the storage needs of not only locals but also new residents, business owners and, visitors. For example, the couple was contacted by a world renowned Spanish guiding company to help launch their Yukon River trip to the Bering Sea. Ricky and Josie provided support for receiving shipped goods, an airport pickup, secure dry space for staging of equipment and supplies and boat trailering/launching.
Because of this type of follow through or value-added service that clients receive, Titanium Storage has become highly recommended as Whitehorse’s most welcoming, user-friendly, and accessible storage facility. The business’s clients range from environmental companies, government offices and nonprofit organizations to professional condo dwellers and homeowners to low income single parent families and students.
Ricky and Josie strive to meet customer requests, needs, and desires every day of the week. As affording a full-time office person is not yet a viable option Ricky and Josie (who both must work outside jobs) have implemented a lunch hour office hour for clients to drop in. Customers are assisted at other times during the day, evenings or weekends by appointment. The current primary development goal of Titanium Storage is to hire a full-time office person once Phase 3 development is complete by 2018.
Ricky and Josie discovered the need for accessible downtown storage out of the demand for their own storage needs when moving to combine households. This need included storage of tools, outdoor gear, the histories of older children, business documents, and other significant belongings. There were all items which had to be accessible but could not be included in the space of their new home.
After two years of persistent research, discovery led to a unique Joint Venture arrangement, which allowed Ricky and Josie to initiate the development of a storage park in the downtown core for Whitehorse. This was labeled Phase 1 (out of a 3-phase development plan) and was completed in November for 2011. The feverish building season was rigorous, as it always is in the Yukon, and managing the construction of six storage buildings of Phase 1 was no different.
Titanium Storage opened for operation on a cold grey day in November, 2011. Occupancy rate was 1 tenant for the month of November. Ricky and Josie remember the feeling that doom was sure to follow. However, as awareness of the new storage facility increased occupancy rates steadily climbed and reached 95% 4 months later in March. Titanium Storage has been operating at capacity ever since!
Three years later, in 2014, the couple was able to purchase their joint venture partners shares and enter into a proper commercial lending arrangement as sole owners of Titanium Storage. Then one year later the couple was able to qualify for Phase 2 funding. Again, after the same feverish pattern of seasonal construction, Phase 2 is now complete and operating at capacity.
Titanium Storage has become Whitehorse’s most convenient and accessible storage facility, offering various locker sizes for rent on a monthly basis with no obligation and 24-hour monitored access. The facility also provides long term outdoor parking solutions, again, with 24-hour access. The security systems include both camera and computer monitoring so customers can feel comfortable driving up to their unit or picking up and dropping off their vehicle any time of day or night!
