A Big Parramatta Bread Factory

Kennards Self Storage proudly supports the heritage and history of the local Parramatta community. Customers will recognise the little heritage cottage on the corner of Una Street, on the property that is our Parramatta Self Storage centre, 105 Wigram Street, Harris Park.

We are excited to be nearly complete with an adaptive reuse of the heritage cottage at this location. The building had suffered from several ills over the years and whilst expensive, it was important to our team at Kennards Storage to keep the building and where we have been able to, bring it back to its former glory. Our construction team are in the final throws of achieving DA permissions for the exterior of the cottage. Our internal rescue and improvements are nearly complete. We are aiming for the launch of this cottage and its exciting new use for sometime in August.

Kennards Self Storage Hoxton Park Expands Into Hardware

The Team at Kennards Self Storage Hoxton Park are excited to announce the fit-out works for the much-anticipated expansion of their 2 Lyn Parade storage centre has commenced.

Centre manager, Bianca Golban and her Team have been working toward this milestone for much of the past year. “We’ve been serving the neighbourhood next door to the Bunnings and Officeworks since opening in 2008. The original 770 spaces in their various sizes were perfect for the needs of our customers at the time and we’re pleased with our growth over those years. Due to the shape of the building, one weakness we’ve had is a shortage for Ground Floor and Driveway accessible spaces. We were never able to keep up with the demand from our customers for these types of spaces. This expansion into the area vacated by Bunnings solves that weakness” Said Bianca.

Big Changes Are Coming!

Kennards Self Storage are excited to confirm that we are undertaking a significant expansion and improvement of our 565 Woodville Road Guildford storage centre.

Located in the heart of the Cumberland council district in western Sydney; the Kennards Self Storage Guildford centre was one of our first dedicated centres built. And one of the first our, at the time very young CEO Sam Kennard had a hand in building.

Sam and Nev Kennard

The centre opened in 1984 with around 540 storage spaces. At the time, secure gate access, hoist access to upper levels and smooth glide roller doors were an innovation. Sometime later Kennards Hire relocated from the south-western yard on the corner permitting the use of the space for larger vehicle and container storage.

We are the pioneers for adaptive re-use of buildings around the country. We are committed to the care and maintenance of all our properties. Many of our centres have historical and local significance making our efforts even more important.

Our storage centre at 2 Parramatta road, Homebush is one such example. Originally the home of Columbia Records and later EMI Records. We are undertaking the complete replacement of the roof  at this centre in February 2019.

In the interest of safety and our duty of care to our customers and team members the roof will be replaced in accordance with strict Australian Standards. The contractor selected for these works is: RMA Contracting Pty Ltd

This will impact access to spaces to a small number of customers for short periods during the works. A more detailed schedule has been shared with customers at the centre.

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!
