Start-up businesses benefit from Kelowna commercial storage shipping, receiving, and warehousing services at Space Centre Storage.


Whether you have just opened a storefront or an online store, there are ways to store your product as well as handle shipments and deliveries without overcrowding your garage, basement, or backroom. From self-storage to storage container rentals to lease space, Space Centre Storage offers several Kelowna commercial storage options that will help your start-up business thrive.


A Real Self-Starter

Inventory overflow can happen at any time, and especially when you’re just starting out. Forgo clutter by having a secure off-site storage space for all your extra inventory, products, and supplies.

There are a number of ways you can use self-storage to your advantage. Look for on-demand self-storage in Kelowna that offers:

  • Varying sized units 
  • Heated climate-controlled storage units for fragile items
  • Drive-thru and covered access 
  • 24-hour availability
  • Short and long-term storage
  • Stringent security measures such as video surveillance, gates, and coded keypad access


Storage Just Steps Away

Another way that start-up businesses can assess a commercial storage space is by renting a portable storage container. Measuring 16ft. In length, 7 ft. wide and 8ft. tall, a MI-BOX® storage container fits into a standard-sized parking lot for easy access and is perfect for seasonal businesses, sports organizations, and non-profits, as they are inexpensive to rent and maintain. Best of all, the containers are delivered to your door and can be filled at your leisure. Keep your container on-site or have it picked up to be warehoused at Space Centre Kelowna’s MI-BOX® storage facility. 

A storage container can be used for items such as:

  • Inventory 
  • Banners, flyers and marketing materials
  • Market stalls, tents, tables, and chairs
  • Equipment such as generators, lighting, etc.
  • Packing materials


Signed, Sealed, Received and Delivered

Missing an important delivery can slow down a startup, especially if you’re often away or don’t have a way to ship or receive stock at your place of business or at your home. Kelowna storage companies, such as Space Centre Storage, have loading docks and licensed forklift operators to transfer goods for staging, warehousing, shipping, and receiving, so all your products and goods get out to your customers in a timely manner. New businesses can also make use of Space Centre’s file storage and mailboxes, available in business and corporate sizes for package receiving.


A New Lease on Business

Looking for a place to conduct your new business? Space Centre Storage offers a select number of commercial lease spaces at its Alcan Road facility right off Highway 97 in Kelowna. The Kelowna storage company also plans to add to its commercial lease space in the coming year.
