MYTH BUSTERS – Self Storage Edition

February 08, 2021 by Antone Boustani

Lets face it, there are some services and products that we know a lot about and there are some services and products we know a little about. You will tend to hear everyone you know lend a comment about services and products that you bring up in conversation. The issue is what is the truth and what is Myth? Do vitamin pills work? Does an apple a day keep the Doctor away? How do I tell who is the most cost-effective energy provider? Confusing!!  One service that is not the highest on the wish list (until you actually need it) is Storage. 

Storage can be really confusing. There are so many options and so many offers. Confusing! There are many Myths out there regarding Storage. Lets look at the truth and bust those Myths!!

Too expensive 

Everything has a cost. The question is, am I getting value for money. Self Storage prices can also be confusing. Everyone wants cheap storage. Kennards Self Storage takes away the confusion. For transparency all prices of Storage at Kennards Self Storage are on our new website It is an easy to use refreshingly transparent place where it is easy to get an actual price. We will help you with expert advise so that you can choose the appropriate size for the goods you wish to store. You will then pay the rent for a 1 month no lock in period. This means you will only pay for the exact amount of days that you stay. Kennards Self Storage will refund unused rent meaning there is no lease, you can leave after 1 day and get a refund.

Storage is dirty

You will be pleasantly surprised with Kennards Self Storage. The spaces that are used at Kennards are cleaned by the team onsite every time a customer empties the space they have used. When you rent a space from us you will find a tag on it to certify that it was cleaned and sprayed for insects. Rat baits are also added. The team also sweep aisle ways and clean all touch points all the time so we are Covid 19 safe.

Can only get into my space in the day time

Unlike many of the options out there Kennards Self Storage has spaces that are accessible 24 hours a day 7 days a week. You can even get into those spaces on Anzac Day if need be. Our offices are also open 7 days a week. No notice to access is required. Try doing that at storage box place, Contact us regarding our 24hour access. We will show you spaces that you access using your own unique pin. The pin will open the security gate and away you go.

Storage is dark and dingy

Kennards Storage has one eye on safety having the place lit up and one eye on the environment. If a corridor is not being used then why have the light on. What we do to insure both happen is to have a dial in each corridor to turn our lights on or better still if you store at Kennards Self Storage Wollongong you will notice lights turn on as you enter each corridor. You can have your own Maxwell smart moment!! This ensures safety whilst having less of an effect on the environment.

I can’t lug my things up stairs

It is painful to move. Putting boxes in your car and carrying them up stairs to put in a garage is tough work. Not at Kennards Self Storage. Kennards Self Storage has a free trailer to use on move in day so you don’t even need a car. Don’t like using a trailer. Kennards Self Storage has a relationship with GoGet. Ask our team on how to get your discount. Once you get to our facilities you will be able to use trolleys and use an elevator or goods lift to get to the spaces on an upper level or avoid the lift by renting on the ground floor. Lifting upstairs is a thing of the past. Kennards Self Storage Wollongong has 4 Buildings with many lifts and trolleys available.

Storage places are scary

Kennards Storage are secured facilities. We have well lit areas throughout all of our centres and CCTV Footage with back to base monitoring. Majority of our centres have individually alarmed spaces meaning your goods are secure even when you are not there.

Storage is not viable for business

Starting a business can be tough at the best of time. Signing a lease is costly and a serious commitment. Why not start up at a place that has no leases. What if that place has a forklift onsite (free to use) or a dispatch area for your deliveries (free to use). Want to have a meeting with a client or write and send an invoice or email. Make use of our conference room (free to use and free wifi). Kennards Self Storage is the place where this happens. Pay the rent on storage and enjoy these options for free. We have many businesses that store with us. Online shops, all types of tradesman and builders, even restaurants. We even provide wine Storage.

Signing up is hard

Jump on and you will be able to sign up from the comfort of your own home anytime day or night. All the information is easy to access and you are only a couple of clicks away from a contactless rental. You can choose your location then browse from over 100 sizes and price points.

Buying a box is complicated

Where to get moving boxes or cheap moving boxes is a mystery when you first look. If you walk into a major hardware brand looking for boxes you can find your self lost and confused. If you walk into any Kennards Self Storage you will get expert advise on what box suits what items. Our team will offer you a 20% discount on any mixture of 10 boxes purchased. Any unused boxes can be refunded at the price you pay at any centre in the country.
