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!

Access is sensational with a capability for large trucks to enter the site from many directions. Within five minutes they’d be able to get onto the M4 or heading south to the M5 and greater Sydney.

By virtue of its design the centre is also blessed with a large, wide loading area, perfect for trucks and containers to unload straight into the storage spaces; positioned centrally between the three buildings on the site.

The opening team is in the final stages of off-site preparation. With the centre close to being lock up they will move into the detail for setting the centre up, bringing in their equipment and preparing to begin trading.

Weather permitting this could mean they’d be open as early as sometime in November 2017. With ideal commercial mini warehouse spaces in short supply customers are encouraged to make their bookings and reserve their space now.
