Home Away From Home

July 09, 2021 by Kennards Self Storage

In 2006 North Lakes was carved out as a separate suburb from the sleepy suburb of Mango Hill. The master planned community North Lakes was developed by Stockland and the suburb named after it. 

Since its birth, North Lakes has seen phenomenal growth and attracted not just interstate residents but has lured international residents who have made Australia home. It has become an eclectic mix of ethnicities and beliefs. The initial target was to cater to 25,000 residents by 2020. In the 2011 census, North Lakes had a population of just over 15,000. This increased to 21,000 in 2016.

Conveniently located along the Bruce Highway that links Brisbane to the Sunshine Coast, North Lakes, offers its residents all the amenities including multiple schools, medical centres and a range of shopping options. 
The Westfield Shopping Centre is one of the biggest precincts north of the Brisbane river. It is home to all the biggest and best major brands. It is also home to IKEA and the first Costco outlet in Queensland.

The North Lakes Business Park situated on the edge of the community has the ability to accommodate a variety of businesses. A 20 minute drive from Brisbane Airport and 40kms from Brisbane CBD, the park just like the community is easily accessible road, rail and air.

North Lakes has also become a perfect place for those looking for an investment property. Recent numbers reveal that on average, houses rent for $450.00 per week while units will get $395.00 per week. If you want to buy, you are looking at an average of $532,000 for a 4-Bedroom house.

The development of North Lakes has triggered a spate of new developments around the suburb. Multiple new projects in Mango Hill, Dakabin and Kallangur are in the pipeline. These areas offer peaceful residence to their occupants but will benefit from all the amenities of North Lakes.

As the demand for space began increasing in North Lakes, the family owned Kennards Self Storage entered the storage market offering customers a place to store their goods while they found a place to live. 

Since 2013 Kennards Self Storage North Lakes has focussed in tailoring solutions to each customer’s individual needs. The three-storey property offers over 30 different storage unit sizes which means you could store just a mattress in a storage unit or park your caravan when you are not travelling.

You might be able to find cheap storage with the competition but we offer more than anyone can offer. Storing with Kennards Storage North Lakes you can:

•    Talk to someone in the office every day of the week including Sundays.
•    Ensure that the centre is kept COVID safe every day of the week.
•    Have 24/7 access to your goods.
•    Enjoy a coffee or a quick meal within walking distance.
•    Purchase moving boxes and packing needs
•    Contactless and seamless process to move-into a unit.

Now, if that is not enough, the extremely friendly Team of Jason and Simone will make time to talk you through various options to get the right solution for you. They will give you tips on how to pack for storage or even something specific like how to pack paintings for storage.

The fact that you don’t have a minimum or maximum time that you need to store for means, you only pay for the time you have a storage unit with us. More so, if you need to upsize or down size from a storage unit, you have the flexibility to do so.

The centre also has facilities to store your cars, boats and caravans. Being able to come and go 24/7 means you don’t have to worry about rushing.

Call the Team at Kennards Self Storage North Lakes on 07 3691 7755 or better still jump online at to get all your questions answered and even rent a storage unit while you are there!
