Storage Solutions: What Can You Do With a Mini Storage Space?

Posted on Aug 14, 2019

University students sharing a dorm or apartment can pool their resources by renting a mini storage space to store their extra furniture and other belongings.

 

With fall about to begin, and college and university students getting ready to go back to school, now is the time to start looking for a little more space — for storage that is.  A mini storage space from Space Centre Storage is the perfect solution to store your seasonal toys and gardening equipment or to keep your bicycle protected.

 

Big Things, Small Packages

You’ll be surprised about what you can fit into a small space. Our smallest lockers measure 5-by-8 ft. and 4-by-10 ft. (that's 40 square feet of space), which on average can fit such items as:

  • Gardening tools and planters
  • Summer tires
  • Small bed or dresser
  • One or more bicycles
  • Small lawnmower
  • Seasonal items such as Christmas decorations
  • Boxes of books and other knick-knacks

 

Hampered by Space

Space is often a commodity if you live in a condo, apartment, or a dorm room on campus, and that is especially true when it comes to storage. A small storage unit is perfect for those who need that extra closet or who don’t have a basement or attic in which to put away their extra gear. University or college roommates can also pool their resources by storing additional furniture or boxes in a shared unit. 

 

Big on Security

While most multi-family residences offer storage space, such as a caged-off area in the parking garage, they don't provide the same level of security as a secure storage facility. With bike theft on the rise in Kelowna, you may also want a safe space for bike storage. All of the units at Space Centre Self Storage in Kelowna offer:

  • Gated access with individual codes for entry
  • 24-hour video surveillance
  • On-site security personnel
  • Disc padlocks for purchase

 

Access with Ease

Another benefit of self-storage is the ease in which you can access your belongings. Space Centre Storage offers both indoor and outdoor access storage facilities. Some units even offer 24-hour access, which is helpful for those who need to move or retrieve their items regularly.

 

Get 40 for 40

Right now, you can fill one of Space Centre Storage's 40-square feet units for as little as $40 a month— that's a savings of more than $57 per month for the first four months.
