How Kelowna Businesses Benefit from Commercial Storage

Posted on Mar 25, 2020

Commercial storage is a way for businesses to store their additional stock.

Kelowna residents have always been creative when it comes to starting up their businesses, especially true when checking out the stalls at the various local farmers’ markets. Along with farm-fresh produce, market vendors sell everything from natural health products to hand-crafted woodwork, and more. Businesses that rely on replenishing stock regularly, or who operate seasonally, or need to move their wares periodically can all benefit from additional commercial storage. That’s where having a self-storage unit, or a mobile storage container can help.

 

On the Move

Mobile vendors, and not those who peddle cell phones, always have to figure out ways to move their wares from one place to another. Often there is not enough room in their vehicles or trailers to store additional stock or to move items quickly. One option is to look for mobile storage containers in Kelowna, such as MI-BOX® containers. Available from Space Centre Storage, MI-BOX® portable units can be delivered and picked up at the location of your choice and fit into a standard size parking stall. They can also be kept on your property or stored at the Space Centre Storage’s climate-controlled warehouse and accessed whenever you need them. Best of all, they can fit enough stock to fill a regular-sized garage.

 

Storing During the Seasons 

Summer and winter are vastly different when it comes to inventory, especially here in the Okanagan. Businesses that deal with clothing, landscaping, recreational or decorative products, or have appliances and items such as barbecues and sunshades, need to find creative ways to store their goods in the off-season. A self-storage locker or unit that you can lock yourself is one way to make sure your seasonal items remain safe from theft and secure from the elements.

 

Easy accessibility

If you're lacking storage at your business and need a place for excess stock that you can easily access, why not consider outside or drive-through covered units? Offered by Space Centre, these units allow you to load and unload goods from your vehicle with ease. They also provide increased security with:

  • 24-hour video surveillance
  • On-site security personnel
  • Coded gate key access
  • Lighting
  • Heat detectors
  • Concrete exterior and steel interior walls
  • Individual locks that you supply

 

Shipping and Receiving 

Another Kelowna business storage option is one that allows for shipping and receiving. Space Centre Storage offers a loading dock and forklifts operated by licensed staff, where items can be delivered and transferred for warehousing with ease of retrieval, without you having to lift a finger.
