The Kings of 24/7 Access Storage in Western Sydney

The way we go about our daily lives has changed and our Storers seek flexibility to be able to access their storage at any time. We are the kings of giving our storers 24/7 access every day of the year.

At Kennards Self Storage Penrith we welcomed in excess of 100 customers recently over the summer bush fire crisis. Our 24 hour 7 day access proved popular for our Blue Mountains storers, being able to access their storage unit at any time.

Self Storage Prices Wollongong

Congratulations!! You bought a house, or you sold one! There are many reasons we move homes in our lives and we do it a lot.

The Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) report from the Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research is the result of three consecutive years’ survey covering 7,682 households and 19,914 individuals, with adult members of each household interviewed annually. The report shows that 25.3 per cent of the people who were interviewed in all three years had moved house at least once since their first interview in 2001.The overall average time spent at the current address is about ten years, but people between the ages of 20 and 35 stay in the same place for shorter periods than older people. The average length of time for a 25 to 34 year old to stay in one home is around four years, compared to approximately 20 years for those over the age of 65.The HILDA Survey shows that frequency of moving house is related mainly to income, age and whether children are part of the household.

Once you do move home you may need to hold your goods in a secure location for a period of time. Storage Facilities like Kennards Self Storage Wollongong aim to solve this part of the equation by providing spaces that can accommodate all sorts of things.

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.

Take one of life’s known stressors like selling a home, buying a home, or moving, shake it around and inject it with a fist full of steroids and that’s what moving might feel like right now. All around us there is change. Retail is facing closures, travel restrictions are being enforced and we all have a personal radius of 1.5 metres!

To quote Star Trek, “it’s life Jim, but not as we know it“!

If moving is on the cards for you or you know someone moving, please read on.

Truganina, Stands Out In Its Field, Literally

Kennards Self Storage (KSS) not only has ground-breaking business practice…in this case, they have also physically broken ground (and progressed much further) at the next KSS centre to open in Truganina.

First impressions of the new site (scheduled to be opening on June 30, 2020) inspire a relative wow-factor in contrast to its current surroundings. Standing alone on a very large block of land, it is flanked only by rocks and soil, but with a horizon scape of quickly emerging concrete warehouse ‘mountains’ in the not too far distance. Once a deserted block, as construction has made leaps and bounds, it no longer looks akin to a scene you would expect a tumbleweed to drift across, accompanied by an eerie Western theme song.

Driving down Leakes Road, which is currently under improvements (part of the Western Roads full upgrade), the massive KSS site stands out as a gleaming beacon of Kennards orange and blue, amongst the already buzzing activity. Shops, distribution centres and warehouses are scattered around in the fields, soon to morph into a close-knit, thriving metropolis, barely on the outskirts of Melbourne.

The 30th June, 2020 is a date to remember in Truganina as Kennards Self Storage is opening its 93rd Storage Centre located at 332 Leakes Road. It’s the birth of Kennards’ growth in the western suburbs of Melbourne, and our 14th storage facility to be built in Melbourne.

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.
