Secure Storage Options Kelowna
Space Centre Storage has added new electronic fences with coded keypad entry to its secure storage facilities in Kelowna.

Canada may be a spacious country, but due to our position on the global map and our extreme weather, we Canadians could all do with a little more space. That is especially true when it comes to secure storage facilities.

Knowing what to look for and what options are available is key to solving your storage issues.


Make Sure the Facility is Secure and Meets Your Needs

In the Okanagan, and especially in Kelowna, we often need a variety of options in a controlled environment in which to store our items when space at home or at work becomes an issue. This is especially true of seasonal items such as our winter and summer tires, snow blowers and lawnmowers, boats, jet skis, trailers as well as commercial storage for our work and office equipment.

Look for a one-stop shop with proper safety and security measures, such as:

  • Electronic fences with coded keypad entry
  • 24-hour surveillance cameras
  • Covered drive-through and drive-up access
  • Heated storage space


Explore Your Space Options

Looking for a place that not only offers personal and commercial self-storage but also other options that fit a variety of needs is important.

See if the facility offers:

  • Storage lockers
  • Mini warehousing
  • Outdoor RV and boat storage lots
  • Portable storage containers
  • Onsite storage containers
  • Document storage facilities
  • Tire storage in Kelowna
  • Mailboxes


Ask if the Facility Offers Moving and Lifting Equipment

Placing your items in your rented storage space is fine if you have your own truck and lots of muscle to lift heavy items, but what if you need help? Finding a storage facility that offers extra services can be a life-send when you need to conduct a DYI personal or office move.

Look for a storage facility that offers shipping and receiving and specialized equipment and services such as:

  • A free moving truck with driver
  • Forklifts
  • Loading docks
  • Levellers
  • Pallets and pallet jacks
  • Packing supplies and moving materials
  • File pickup and retrieval services


What’s New with Storage Boxes in Kelowna

Portable storage containers, such as a MI-BOX®, are especially handy if you are moving or renovating your home or conducting an office move and need a container just outside your door in which to place items to be moved at a later time. While they normally fit into a standard parking lot or driveway, there may come a time when you need an off-site storage container rental at a secure facility that gives you 24/7 access to your items.


Space Centre Storage in Kelowna has just come up with a solution by adding brand new storage containers to its storage facilities in Kelowna: Read all about it in our press release: Space Centre Announces 24 Hour Storage Container Access.
