Kennards Self Storage News & Updates

Posts by Fiona Harding

“I’ve shut my shop, got out of my lease and am going 100% online” How Kennards Business Storage was there to help.

Phone, wallet, keys….. hand sanitiser? As I packed up my laptop for the day and looked outside ready to leave, a once bustling street was bare.

Our office, in the bustling hub that is Macquarie Park, Sydney had become a ghost town. Streets lined with office complexes were empty, team members told to hand in the their access passes or to stay home until further notice. It was out of this world!

For years friends have always been fascinated with my attraction to the storage industry, they would say things like “Storage? What is it that holds you there, really? After 15 years’ experience in the business, I’d often provide a well-worn reply “there’s more to it than you think” You’d be surprised how many people we help” It’s the human stories and company culture that keep us here.

Can I Move Home During Covid?

There is moving house, then there is moving house during a global pandemic. If you are like me and recently settled on a property you may know this feeling all too well. Quite frankly you probably deserve a medal.

Why Self Storage is a Welcome Relief for Businesses

Self Storage is home to thousands of essential service industries. Health Care, Fast Moving Consumer Goods, Maintenance and Technical just to name a few.

At a time when the world has been turned on its head, many businesses are adjusting operations daily. Head offices have closed or restricted access and have their teams working from home – daily routines have taken a tumble. Speaking to Account Managers and Representatives this week, a large number are still out on the road distributing goods into the field. Their storage units have proven invaluable.

Our clients rely on being able to access their goods when they need them. The consistency of having 24/7 access to their storage space has been a welcome relief. Having storage units decentralised around the country allows a business to work with space appropriate to their needs. For a couple of boxes, we have lockers or if it is 60 pallets maybe consider or mini warehouses. Regardless, only paying for space as and when they need it has enormous cost-saving benefits when compared to traditional warehousing arrangements.

When The Street Lights Came On It Was Time To Go Home…
