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.
