5 Benefits of Using a Moving Truck for Self Storage in Kelowna

Posted on June 14, 2015

Moving Truck vs Loading up Car

Making multiple trips in an over-packed car is far less convenient than making a single trip in a moving truck when placing items in self-storage.


You've painstakingly packed and labeled every box. You even used the proper packing materials to make sure the goods aren't damaged in transport on the way to the self-storage centre in Kelowna. Do you risk jamming those boxes and containers haphazardly into the back of your car, or do you use a moving truck instead?

When you go to those lengths to make sure your possessions remain intact while in storage, it would be wise to continue that attention to detail while transporting your possessions. There's no sense in renting self-storage if the items are broken or damaged on the way there.


How to Score a Free Move In Truck for Your Self Storage Items

There's only one place in Kelowna that offers a move in truck as a free service—Space Centre Storage. And it even includes a free driver. You do the loading and unloading and your driver will take your belongings right to your storage unit.

Once you've arranged a self storage unit, all you've got to do is call us when you're ready to move your belongings and book an appointment.

Please note: Free moving truck applies to transport to the storage facility only.


Why Use a Moving Truck…Besides it Being Free

1. Saves Multiple Trips

If you're planning on transporting your storage items in the back of your Honda Accord, you'll be at it for a while. Depending on where you live, you could be spending more time on the road than you spend loading and unloading.

2. Saves Your Back

Depositing heavy boxes into the back of a passenger vehicle through a side door is like watching a circus act. You'll likely have to contort your body into all kinds of uncomfortable positions, possibly risking injury or at the very least some stiff, achy muscles.

Space Centre Storage's transport truck features a roll-up back door, loading walkways and a wide opening to easily accommodate all of your possessions.

3. Saves Your Vehicle

Packing your car to the rafters isn't a good idea for a number of reasons:

  • It's hard on your suspension
  • It's hard on your engine, especially if you're travelling on hills
  • It reduces driver visibility
  • It's hard on your vehicle's interior upholstery
4. Saves the Environment

By making multiple trips in your car, you'll be consuming more fuel and producing more emissions than you would making a single trip in a larger transport truck.

5. Protects Your Belongings

Moving your belongings in the covered protection of a cube van is one of the safest and most reliable modes of transportation available. It'll keep your boxes and their contents from being damaged in inclement weather. Plus, there's no risk of items bouncing off the back of the truck like you've probably seen in a pickup truck.


If you already have items in self storage, now is a good time to consider Spring Cleaning Your Kelowna Self Storage Unit.
