Storage can be a big issue in Canada as it close to the North Pole and therefore most of it experiences extremely cold climate. That is also the reason why a major part of this country is not habitable by humans.
Most of the population in the country resides within a narrow belt close to the major water bodies which make the surroundings quite humid. As a result, people design houses and other buildings including the storage spaces duly considering the adverse climatic and weather conditions.
The self storage warehouses in British Columbia are influenced mainly by the Pacific Ocean. These storage units are well equipped with humidity and temperature control systems which provide protection to your belongings. Further measures to make your belongings secure and safe in the storage are:
1.Presence of security people who are well experienced, trained and skilled in warding off any untoward incident. 2.Installation of modern surveillance cameras at correct angles and at right places and electronic and bio-metric access control measures provide round the clock security. Proper lighting, adequate power back-up and alarm systems to warn against fire and unauthorized entry are also installed. 3.Managerial practices: It is not just the machines which make your products safe and secure but also the tried and tested managerial practices like proper recording and documentation of stored goods, daily visitors, staff-attendance, etc.; personnel management involving careful recruitment, training, job rotation and other measures; and, facility management further ensures safety of your premises. 4.These self storage buildings also have adequate pest control measures done at regular intervals of time. Apart from that, there are regular plumbing and other maintenance works done to ensure that water seepage does not occur.
The self storage warehouse may be located in the residential areas, the shopping centers, places of tourist interests and also on the outskirts of the city. These are available in all the sizes so that one can store items of all sizes ranging from small items to cars, boats, Recreational Vehicles (RVs) and other vehicles. The sheltered Car storage spaces protect your car from adverse weather conditions and also from the mala-fide intentions of the humans.
The storage companies also provide the incidental moving solutions as well. They provide truck rentals and moving supplies like tapes, cardboard boxes, heavy duty carpets and other moving necessities. The combination of moving and storage businesses adds to their income and is also convenient for the clients.
These companies are also imbibing a new concept of 'moving storage' into their business very fast. In this, the companies provide the metal containers or boxes of adequate size to the client's premises to store goods as per their own schedule. Further, these can be internally designed in such a way as to hold the articles for long. These moving storage services do not have the same level of protection and safety as a storage facility but these are very useful for the clients since these offer flexibility of choice of time and place for storing the articles.
