A Renovated Community Focused Organization

Friends and business partners Cameron Quilliam and Bob Cramers have worked together for 30 years. So, when an old industrial site that had been filling up with derelict buses, sea cans, and junk over the years came up for sale, the men were able to see past the clutter and envision what the lot could become.

Today it is the new Riel Park RV & Self Storage facility. “The main building has been re-cladded, painted, and has new mechanical and new lighting,” says Quilliam. “Everything within the site has been modernized and primed for now and into the future,” adds Cramers. “It’s all energy efficient.”

The clever slogan and astronaut mascot (Louis Riel – watch for him in an upcoming kid’s comic Riel Park is developing) on their website depicts, “We’ve got lots of spaaaaaaaaaace!” It’s not an exaggeration.

The park includes 500 storage lockers in various sizes and 4.5 acres of RV parking on asphalt. The adjoining wall between the 10 x 10 units can be removed to make a larger unit. The units are taller than average with larger doors to maximize cubic space on the footprint. There is an office on-site, a shop with packing supplies, and friendly customer service for a great storage experience.

Rock’n August

Crowd gather in front of Storage Unit

Joining Rock’n August in 2017 as a major sponsor, Riel Park RV & Self Storage hosted the kickoff lunch in support of Alberta Diabetes.

During the barbeque lunch, three lockers were auctioned off, Storage Wars style. The auctioneer, Counsellor Ray Watkins, generously donated his time to this great cause. Ray auctioned off three lockers filled with various items. Some of these items included an Edmonton Eskimos jersey autographed by quarterback Mike Reilly, an amp and guitar autographed by Theory of a Dead Man, Harley Davidson parts, Fitness equipment from Flaman Fitness and different gift cards from local businesses.

Proceeds from the auction went to support the Stop Abuse in Families (SAIF) Society and Alberta Diabetes research. Lunch came with live entertainment by David Jukebox Leigh who was entertaining and got out into the crowd.

Riel Park RV & Self Storage was proud to be a local community member by sponsoring this event and helping raise money for these great charities.
