Kennards Self Storage News & Updates

Kennards Self Storage – 2c Hume Highway Chullora Nearly There!

The flood of new centres for Kennards Self Storage continues unabated this year. The dryer than normal winter in Sydney has really helped builders with construction being ahead of schedule so far.

The site was slow to come out of the ground as Kennards took on the responsibility to complete a lot of civil works underneath the site. Storm water drainage has been upgraded to allow for any council or government storm water improvements going under the site in future. This necessitated the building of a large under-ground water culvert.

Playing along with the analogy; now that the water works are complete our team are “pumped” about the opening. It’s going to be a landmark storage centre in a highly sought after location.

Kennards Chullora is right next door to the intersections of the Hume Highway and the artery that is Roberts Road / Centenary Drive. Close to a bunch of suburbs such as Greenacre and Lidcombe, not far from Flemington Markets and Strathfield South. Likewise if you are commuting toward the city from Yagoona you’ll drive right past it on your left.

This centre plugs an important gap for our customers in an ideally located central Sydney position – Not too far West. Not too far East. You could say Sydney’s East meets West in Chullora!

Last week the new management team inspected progress and started to get ready to move themselves and their equipment in. The main building structures are now up with much of the fit out for the first buildings nearly complete. The windows for our large office, retail space, meeting room and Box Shop are also being installed.

Once the centre is at a lockable stage progress will move quite quickly. Signage, driveways and permanent fencing will be the last to be installed before opening, weather permitting in November or December this year.

Challenges Confront the Self Storage Disrupters


There has been some noise recently in Australia about self storage industry disruption from peer-to-peer storage providers. Unsurprisingly, this noise often corresponds with capital raising efforts and web site launches. Consequently, I am frequently being asked for a view about the impact and risk to the industry.

I appreciate that by diminishing the impact, I may appear as the arrogant ignorant incumbent. Some may even see Kennards Self Storage as the likely Kodak of the self storage sector. None the less, here I go.

Recently one Australian self storage disrupter start-up, Spacer, has stated an ambition of growth to achieve 8-10% market share of the markets it operates in. It has also raised capital and successfully acquired a US peer known as Roost.

Spacer were not the first, joining a list of peer-to-peer storage disrupters who attempt to match people with some spare room with people who need more room. In principle, the idea seems sound and should get some traction.
