Moose Jaw Self Storage Units Aren’t Just for Stashing Junk

At SaskWatch Storage in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, we would like to take this opportunity to Thank our many loyal customers at our mini storage facility. In fact, since opening our doors in 2011 we continue have many of our original customers.

ToolStorageA key to this is that many people who use our self storage units aren’t just stashing junk. In fact, renting a unit from us is a very cost effective business strategy for many business owners and entrepreneurs.

We continue to host tradespeople like drywall, electrical and plumbing folks that use their units to warehouse supplies. It’s convenient and affordable. Others have stored their clothing lines and other physical products they sell from home.  We have even had larger businesses that store financial records, especially the ones that CRA is asking you to keep for 7 years.

Self storage in Moose Jaw from our perspective is as much about convenient domestic use as it is about savvy business owners taking advantage of an opportunity right within their own community. If your a small business owner in Moose Jaw and want to know more about how we can serve you, feel free to contact our manager Kathy directly at 1(306) 630-2526.

Thank you everyone in Moose Jaw and we hope you have a wonderful July 1st celebration in Crescent Park!

Make Your Storage Unit Your New Years Resolution

Welcome to 2016!!! We’ve seen many people coming and going to their self-storage units at SaskWatch Storage in Moose Jaw. One thing that crossed our minds is “how efficient do folks make their units?”  Your self-storage units don’t have to be a space you visit once

or twice a year to dig something out of a stack of boxes. They can be highly organized, easily accessible spaces that free up necessary space in your home or office.  Here’s a few hints on how to get the most out of your storage space:

Unpack and Arrange Items Efficiently
Before you load up the truck to take your packed items to your self-storage unit, check with our manager to make sure there is adequate space for the truck to maneuver to your unit.

As you arrive at the facility and begin to unload, arranging your furniture, equipment, boxes, and other odds-and-ends efficiently in your storage unit will make a big difference in maximizing its convenience.

Here are a few tried-and-true suggestions for putting items into your unit:
Plan ahead
•    While your storage unit should already be clean and swept out, consider putting down protective canvas sheeting, cardboard or wooden boards on the floor for cleanliness.
•    Keep a fold-up step stool in your space for accessing hard-to-reach areas.
•    Frequently-used items should be placed near the entrance for easy access. This holds true for file boxes and other business items, too. Continue reading

The corrugated iron corridors of the Access self-storage centre in West Norwood, south London are marked by the anonymous outlines of padlocked doors.

Behind many are the belongings that people just can’t bring themselves to throw away – often the residue of life-changing moments like death or divorce.

Yet in among the stacks of furniture and knick-knacks, a growing number of the metal containers play host to a wide range of small businesses.
