Using Sport to Inspire

Kennards Self Storage are proud supporters of Fair Game Australia, a grass-roots not-for-profit organisation that inspires healthy communities through donating recycled sports equipment and using it as a tool to deliver health and fitness education programs.

Since September 2018 Kennards Self Storage have supported Fair Game Sydney with a warehouse at our Hoxton Park centre. Here the hub store sports equipment before it gets given back to communities and programs that need it.

In June 2019 the hub was able to send out their first ever team of volunteers to rural Western NSW. The aim of this 5-day trip was to establish connections with under-serviced rural and remote communities and to gain insight into the challenges that they may face. It was an opportunity to engage with the communities and have discussions about how Fair Game NSW can help address issues around access to sporting equipment and health knowledge promotion.

Kennards Marrickville – Proud To Be Part Of History Since 1994

Marrickville is situated in the Inner West of Sydney, 7km from Sydney CBD. Its name originated from Thomas Chalder. In 1855, he named it after his native village Marrick in North Yorkshire, England. Nowadays Marrickville has a diverse community with immigrants from England, New Zealand, Greece, Vietnam and China.

The Kennards Self Storage building in Marickville was built in the 1920’s. It has since served many purposes. One of the proud moments was serving our country as an Ordnance store no 1, a unit of 2nd Central Ordnance Depot on 24th March 1943 during World War II.

Going once, going twice, SOLD!

Situated in the growing Burbridge Business Park, you could be excused for thinking that newly built Kennards Self Storage Adelaide Airport was just an easy access business storage facility with amazing warehousing spaces for small and large business, but it’s that and so much more!

With the real estate market stagnating in some states and areas, West Adelaide beachside suburbs are bucking the trend with some of the highest visit rates on realestate.com and quickest clearance rates in South Australia along with suburbs like West Beach still seeing growth in median house prices. Given the demand for storage in the previously underserviced area, we thought it would make the perfect location for a mixed use facility, catering for both commercial and residential clients alike with a range of storage options.

For vendors and sellers in the western pocket, Kennards Self Storage Adelaide Airport makes perfect sense. From the decluttering and dressing stages during the sales process to settlement and moving home, we cater for the smallest to the largest needs of those in Western Adelaide. With units small enough to hold tubs and boxes of personal effects to large drive up units catering for the largest of homes, all offering 24/7 access and up to 3 metre ceiling heights, there is an option for even the most time poor vendor.
