How much does luggage storage cost in Vancouver?

The city that we now know as Vancouver was a city at all – it was a small settlement named Gastown. This strange name was inspired by John Deighton, the owner of a popular tavern. For reasons we’re probably better off not knowing, patrons of Deighton’s tavern called him “Gassy Jack.” Over the years, more folks consistently settled into Gastown. Soon, the tiny settlement then ballooned into a full-fledged town. Guess what the residents of this town named the place? That’s right, they named it Granville. It wasn’t until 1886 that Granville became Vancouver. The rest, as they say, is history. Year after year, Vancouver is touted as one of the best places to live – not just in British Columbia, but in all of North America. Vancouver is also a film production hotspot; numerous major motion pictures that take place in America are typically shot here in Vancouver.
Another reason why Vancouver gets so much love stems from the city’s extremely low crime rates. Each year, approximately 8675 violent crimes and 5001 property related crimes are reported. Compare those numbers to Vancouver’s population of nearly 700,000 residents, and you’ll see that barely 1% of Vancouver’s citizens report criminal activity. You can expect a calm, relaxing trip when you visit “Lotus Land” – especially if you store your excess luggage with Bounce.

Luggage Storage Near Granville Island
Once upon a time, this city landmark was a place where workers went to their jobs at a sawmill, factory or manufacturing plant of some kind. Granville Island today is just about as far from this part of its early 20th century roots as you can get. Nowadays, it’s home to fruits, vegetables and other fresh fare; the Granville Island Public Market counts as the island’s biggest draw and is a haven for ardent foodies and tourists, alike.
On any given day, you can pick up some fresh vegetables for that homemade marinara you’re making for dinner, sample fine baked goods and gourmet foodstuffs. If it’s not necessarily food but the culture you’re looking for, Granville Island has that, too.

Luggage Storage Near Gastown
For those who love the X-marks-the-spot kind of stories, then you won’t want to miss taking a trip to Gastown while you’re in Vancouver. Gastown is the original location of what would eventually become the core of Vancouver and is just a hop, skip and a jump away from downtown proper.
As is the case with quite a few Vancouver landmarks, Gastown was originally a place where sawmills and seaports brought commerce to Vancouver. Like that great city south of the Canadian border, San Fransisco, Gastown had its own fire that destroyed a majority of the city. And like Frisco, Gastown was eventually rebuilt, laying the foundation for the city of Vancouver today.
While this part of the city is now decidedly modern in spirit, it’s still known for the stunning Victorian-style architecture of its early years. As you can probably imagine, there is plenty to see here, and one of the best ways to see it is on one of the area tours. A foodie’s tour, a lost souls tour and a hop-on, hop-off tour are among the types of excursions you can take. Or take the Forbidden Downtown and Chinatown Walking Tour to see a more historic, cultural side to the city.
No doubt you won’t want to take a walking tour with your luggage in tow. Fortunately, we do have plenty of options for luggage storage in Vancouver, including in Gastown. As with all of our options for bag storage in Vancouver, you’ll find convenient luggage drop points in and around this area at one of our partner businesses.
