Kelowna portable storage containers are an ideal solution for business owners who want a cost-effective way of storing merchandise, files and office equipment.

Space always seems to be at a premium for most businesses. Whether you’re in an office, retail or other commercial environment, there never seems to be enough of it to go around. If you need a little extra wiggle room, Kelowna portable storage containers might just be the thing you’re looking for.

Whether you need it for a temporary fix or a long-term storage solution, mobile containers‚Äîlike the MIBOX® units at Space Centre Storage‚Äîcan be used for a number of purposes.

 

1. Retail and Office Storage

No matter what type of industry you’re in, businesses are in a constant state of flux. These changes are often caused by factors beyond our control, for example:

  • Seasonal trends
  • Downsizing
  • Expansion

A storage container rental can help you keep up with the shifting commercial landscape by offering a storage buffer when you need it. For instance, if you‚Äôre expecting a big shipment of spring merchandise, you could use a MIBOX® container to house the surplus inventory.

Alternatively, if you had to downsize your office staff, you could store any excess items such as:

  • Furniture
  • Computers
  • Other office equipment

This will help de-clutter your work environment to maximize productivity. And if you ever decide to take on a new employee, the equipment will be readily available.

 

2. Relocation

Moving your business to a new location is a major undertaking. Kelowna portable storage containers can help make the process unfold smoothly because they allow you to do it at your own pace.

These mobile units can be dropped off right at your business, allowing you easily pack what you want, when you want. And once your container is ready, you simply request a professional driver to come and collect it and transport it to your new location for unloading.

 

3. Store Renovations

Renovating your store can be an exciting time. An updated look and other improvements can have a tremendous impact on:

  • Sales
  • Employee satisfaction
  • Productivity
  • Customer loyalty

To streamline the renovation process, it’s usually a good idea to remove any unnecessary equipment and merchandise from the jobsite until the work is complete. Temporarily storing these goods in a mobile container will keep them out of the way in a safe, secure environment.

 

4. Warehousing

Many small-to-medium-sized businesses have a need for extra storage capacity to manage inventory fluctuations. However, the need might not enough to justify the cost of buying or renting dedicated warehouse space.

Companies that fall into this category often rely on portable storage containers as a convenient alternative. You receive the benefit of offsite storage when you need it without tying up capital in a warehouse facility.

For another solution, some business owners prefer to use commercial lease space. To learn more about this, read our post: 5 Advantages Commercial Lease Spaces Have Over Warehouses.
