As the Okanagan urban landscape continues to grow upwards, a Kelowna storage company is meeting the demand for apartment and condominium residents needing storage.
Space Centre Storage says there is a lack of secure storage in many multi-family residential buildings rising up in Kelowna. This limited space provides a challenge for those downsizing from a larger home or for those moving into furnished or micro suites.
“They have no place to store seasonal items such as Christmas decorations, extra furnishings, skis, bikes, tools and even tires,” Space Centre Storage operations manager Yvonne Rogers says.
“We’ve also noticed that for buyers or renters, the storage they receive on the property is a small caged area in the building’s basement or nothing at all. These caged areas do not offer enough security, as the items can be seen.”
Some residents have resorted to storing items on their balcony, which may go against strata rules.
“They may also have heirlooms and antiques they wish to keep, but don’t have a climate-controlled place in which to store them,” Rogers says.
To meet the demand, Space Centre Storage is currently holding a fall mini storage promotion at its Alcan Road facility. The 40-for-40 deal allows those to rent any storage unit measuring 40 square feet or under for $40 for the first four months, Rogers says.
“We have several different-sized mini storage units to meet every need. The regular price for these units is around $87 per month, so it is a considerable savings,” Rogers adds. “Those who rent storage lockers can also make use of our free move-in truck, which gives them the means to transport large, heavier items such as furniture and tires to our facility.”
All customers are provided with a personal access code to get into Space Centre Storage’s gated facility, which also offers 24-hour video surveillance and other security measures.
Space Centre Storage is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays and holidays.
