Transforming Winter Moves: The Efficiency of Kelowna's MI-BOX Mobile Storage Containers

Posted on December 13, 2023

If you’re in the process of moving houses and are struggling to make sense of the ever-growing pile of boxes and appliances strewn everywhere, we understand the stress and can help! Packing an entire home is one thing; having sufficient space to organize packed boxes is another, but trying to keep your cool, ensure all your belongings are transported efficiently, and stick to a tight schedule because the holidays are knocking can be overwhelming. Days merge into nights, and your mental clock—and muscles—are in overdrive. But what if we told you there’s a solution to all your woes? 

Here at Space Centre Storage, you have the option of renting our mobile storage containers, also known as MI-BOX storage containers. They are the perfect portable storage solution for Kelowna residents moving houses, as they can make the process a breeze.

So, where should you start?

Just let us know where and when you need your MI-BOX storage container delivered, and we will make it happen. You can have the storage container stored on your driveway for as long as you like, packing and organizing at your own convenience. When you are ready to move, we will come pick up the container and transport it to your desired location. You read that right! Spare yourself the additional hassle of having to figure out how to move your MI-BOX container. Use that extra energy to double-check for items left behind and make sure everything is spick and span before you bid farewell to your house.

However, if you are moving into an interim house, you don’t need to unpack all your items and would like them stored safely. We’ve got you covered there too. We can store the portable storage container at our facility—either in a climate-controlled area or outside in a security-patrolled premise. Once you’re in your new home and ready to unpack, say the word, and we’ll deliver it to your location, no sweat.

But winter is in full swing; what if it snows?

We’ve got good news there too. MI-BOX isn’t your run-of-the-mill shipping container; they're designed for you and your well-loved items. They feature full-sized roll-up doors, a one-piece seamless waterproof roof, composite wall panels, and hot-dipped galvanized steel frames to keep rust, mould, and mildew from ruining your belongings while they’re stored.

Are you still having trouble making up your mind?

Here are a few rounded-up benefits of utilizing a MI-BOX storage option in the winter:

  • Safety: Not only do portable storage containers save you time, but they provide added safety, as they limit you having to drive to and from a storage facility on icy roads or during limited daylight hours.

  • Easy access: Most MI-BOX containers fit into a standard-sized parking space and can be kept in your driveway or parking lot in front of your home or business. Best of all, you can access them at any time, day or night.  

  • Extra storage: MI-BOX containers serve as a secondary storage building that you keep on your premises. Think of them as an extended garage, tool shed, equipment trailer, or mini-warehouse.  

  • A way to declutter: A container can help you declutter your garage and home without having to make constant space within your home or multiple trips to your new home. Once your container is full, simply call us to have it picked up and delivered to wherever you need the contents to go.
