Self Storage With Added Benefits

August 03, 2022 by Kennards Self Storage

My business partner and I have been running our Mobile Mechanical business from home for the last few years. Having recently moved into an apartment we no longer had space for the vehicles and spare parts. With our business growing and no sign of sales slowing it was time to find a business storage solution. We called around our nearest storage centres to see what our options were. Some of them better than others we finally decided on Kennards Self Storage Mayfield as they had the most to offer us at the best price. The staff there also made us feel extremely welcome when we first approached them. They have also arranged insurance for us that come in much cheaper than the insurance we were paying for our stock prior to moving to Kennards.

We stock parts and need deliveries excepted and found that Kennards Mayfield was our perfect solution as they have 24-hour access, and we can have deliveries sent to the facility and the staff there simply send us a message saying goods have been delivered and we can pick them up at their office. We can also have couriers pick up stock if needed and the staff at Kennards are only too happy to help out. Kennards also helped us out with racking hire and had lights and power added to our unit, so it is now a mini workshop. Only after I had started storing with Kennards Self Storage Mayfield did I find out that they are also a Parcel Point Centre, unfortunately for me my wife loves to shop online, and we had found after moving into an apartment that some of our packages had gone missing. My wife now has all of her online orders delivered though Parcel Point and sent to Kennards Self Storage Mayfield.  We find this is an excellent service, as soon a package is delivered Kennards send an SMS saying it is now in the store and ready for pickup.  My wife and also processes any returns to the suppliers though this service and she is able to track online where the goods are, making sure that she either gets a refund or a credit from the supplier. I would like to say that Kennard Self Storage Mayfield has improved our business by 100% but my wife would say they have made her shopping experience improved by 100%.

Kennards in Mayfield had a ground floor storage unit perfect for our needs and on further investigations we found we could also store our two mobile workshop vans. This gave us extra security as the vans are in a gated area that can only be accessed by customers. With these added advantages we have not only found it a lot easier, but our business has grown as a result of the extra pressure that has been taken from us with the help of the staff at Kennards Mayfield.

My neighbour has recently purchased a boat but found once he had brought it home it did not fit under his carport. I suggested that he contact Kennards Self Storage Mayfield as they have outdoor spaces for caravans, boats and cars. He contacted the staff there and was able to secure a space for his eight-metre boat at a really reasonable price. With the twenty-four-hour access he is able to pick the boat up at any time, which is fantastic as he depends on the tides for fishing. He has been so happy with the service there that he has even given the staff some fresh fish after coming back in from a day of fishing. 

One of the best features of storing with Kennards Self Storage Mayfield is that the staff there are extremely happy to help us out in anyway they can. An example of this is when we went on holidays for two weeks, they were happy to hold our deliveries until we returned.  Some of our customers even needed parts that had been delivered in this time, we advised Kennards Self Storage Mayfield that they would be coming in and they happily forwarded them on to our customers when they come to pick them up. The feedback I got from our customer was fantastic and added value to our business as well as adding value to Kennards Self Storage.

We had no idea that self storage also came with so many extra services! Not only do we have extra security for our vans and stock, but our business has grown in the past year. The staff there are amazing, and we can even use their kitchen to heat up our food or make a coffee. They really make us feel like they are part of our team.
Some of the other features that they have to offer is a free move in trailer when I first signed up, I am also able to hire this at any time for a very reasonable rate. I can also have the use of their meeting room which has come in very handy when I am speaking with new suppliers. This meeting room has a free Internet Hotspot which makes it even more attractive and useful.

As a business we can only speak too highly of Kennards Self Storage Mayfield, they have exceeded our expectations of the Self Storage Industry and have helped to improve our business and life. I have recommended their services to business partners and friends who have all found their service second to none.  I hope to grow my business in the future and will be using Kennards Self Services as part of my business plan.  I can claim the cost of the storage, power and lights on my taxes, and I am free to move out at anytime I like as there no fixed contract. 

The security and access control systems are part of the reason I chose Kennards Self Storage Mayfield, I have an individual access code that records all access to my storage and opens and closes the security gates as I enter and leave. They also have CCTV cameras that run twenty-four hours a day and the staff are on site seven days a week. This gives me the peace of mind and the knowledge that my goods are safe at all times. With the added benefit of insurance, I can run my business without any hiccups. 

My payment options are so easy that I can just have my credit card debited each month, come in and pay in cash or set up a direct deposit. At the end of the financial year, I simple ring the staff at Kennards Self Storage Mayfield and they even send an emailed statement for the year to me (what more could I ask for).

Kennards Self Storage also proudly support a number of community initiatives, charities and causes. Helping the community is their way of giving back and showing they care.

Supporting causes to promote change both locally and overseas. Their boxes travel the world, and their storage units filled with blankets, clothes and food for disaster relief causes and they even have their very own team that sleep rough to raise money for homeless youth. Their sponsorship program is broken down into four community pillars: Natural Disasters, Conflict & Insecurity, Children’s Poverty and Education and Homelessness.
 

Our Partners and Friends and many organisations have become strongly attached to this company for many reasons. Some of these companies have been loyal suppliers, with strong affiliation to see the company shine and prosper. Kennards have collaborated for many years to innovate and ensure the highest standards for its customers.
