Having storage near your Kamloops home lets you reclaim space and have somewhere safe for the belongings you’d rather not store at home.

Make Room in an “Empty Nest”

Many people that use our Kamloops storage facility are experiencing “empty nest syndrome”. The kids have grown up and left home and left you to sort out their storage problems! With the help of a storage unit, you can stop storing your children’s belongings in unused bedrooms, basements, or garages, and finally convert those spaces into something more useful, such as an office, den, or guest bedroom.


Some empty-nesters downsize, moving out of the family home and into a smaller house or apartment. As a result of downsizing living space, storage space is also downsized! A self storage unit is an excellent temporary (or permanent) solution to space problems if you have downsized or are planning to downsize.

Support a Trade or Home-Based Business
