Welcome To The Wild Wild West

Wetherill Park is a suburb in Greater Western Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Wetherill Park is located 34 kilometres west of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the City of Fairfield.

The 2016 census recorded that Wetherill Park as having a resident population of 6,127. Just under half (47.5%) of these residents were born in Australia. The area is 11.2 km2 Most residents live in the south-east corner, the larger portion of the suburb being an industrial area. 

Wetherill Park sits on the southern border of Prospect Reservoir. Located partially in the suburb, the Smithfield-Wetherill Park Industrial Estate is the largest industrial estate in the southern hemisphere and is the centre of manufacturing and distribution in Greater Western Sydney. 

History
Wetherill Park was named after a businessman who offered 21 acres (85,000 m2) of his property to the State government as a park. The offer was accepted and the park was named after the donor. The first settlers in set up their homes north of the present school site at Wetherill Park. One hundred years ago, there were not enough homes in this suburb to need a school.

With the commencement of the Prospect Reservoir Waterworks, a local storekeeper, Samuel Booth, made available a section of his land for a school, free of charge. The school, called 'Macquarie Park', was located on the corner of Victoria and Daniel Streets being 365 Victoria Street, Wetherill Park. It opened in May 1882 with 8 children but it was changed in June 1882 to 'Boothtown' for Samuel Booth's involvement in the establishment of the school. In 1884 it became Reservoir Public School and in 1896, it became the Wetherill Park Public School.[6] In 1986 the school made way for the Phuoc Hue Temple, and was relocated down the road to Lily Street and renamed William Stimson Public School, in honour of the first mayor of the City of Fairfield.

Interesting Fact
A characteristic of Wetherill Park is that all the streets are named after famous writers. Some examples include: Vidal Street (for Gore Vidal), Shakespeare Street (for William Shakespeare), Stevenson Street (for Robert Louis Stevenson), Locke Street (for John Locke), Gogol Place (for Nikolai Gogol), Swinburne Crescent (for Richard Swinburne), Homer Place (for Homer), Emerson Street (for Ralph Waldo Emerson), Wordsworth Street (for William Wordsworth), Dickens Road (for Charles Dickens), Longfellow Street (for Henry Wadsworth Longfellow), Chaucer Street (for Geoffrey Chaucer), Ainsworth Crescent (for William Harrison Ainsworth), Coleridge Road (for Samuel Taylor Coleridge), Frost Close (for Robert Frost), Gissing Street (for George Gissing), Maugham Crescent (for Somerset Maugham) and Langland Street (for William Langland).

Exciting News – Expansion
Kennards Self Storage is a community minded business. We always like to be aware of the needs of the community and businesses in the area. Demand for space has grown during Covid times and therefore the need for Storage space has increased. The Wetherill Park site is expanding to solve this dilemma! A new building containing over 200 new spaces and over 3300 metres of extra space is being created and is scheduled for completion in May 2022. All new spaces will be alarmed and accessible 24 Hours a day. For businesses we will have 9 new mini warehouses including 9x15m sized spaces equalling 135 Square metres and five 6 x 12 metre spaces equalling 72 Square metres. 

Storage creating the space for change!!

When you do a google search for packing boxes you find that a lot of people out there are looking for information for the humble box. We all know that a box has 4 walls a top and a bottom but that’s not all there is to it. You tend not to need to know about boxes until you need boxes.

Your search begins online and you end up at a place that sells boxes. It is easy to find yourself in a long aisle looking at boxes and bubble wrap and realising they all look the same. You can wait and hope that someone will walk by that can help you choose. When no one turns up you buy what you think is the correct box and you end up with the wrong box sometimes.

You then have to go back to the place you bought them, wait in a long line to get a refund or store credit.
It does not have to be this way. Instead of going to a place that sells packing boxes as well as 500 other types of hardware or software you can go to a place that specialises in packing items.

Kennards Self Storage is such a place. Kennards Storage team members are trained to be box specialists. Our knowledge and just as importantly experience with boxes and packing boxes is unmatched. Kennards Self Storage also offers Storage spaces for rent. This means we actually know what boxes are used for and where they end up. We care that you buy the correct item because we know the end game. Even better we buy back boxes weather they are used or new. Try doing that somewhere else and see the look on their faces. You can buy a box from Anton at Gladesville and move to Newstead in Queensland and return the box to David at our centre there and he will buy it back off you if it’s still in decent condition, and that is if the box is used. If it’s unused David will refund you the same amount you spent in Gladesville.

Our team are passionate about all our customers that need storage or packaging items. You will walk in or call the centre and someone will actually talk to you and give you the time to help you with your questions, we will also make recommendations. Different items go into different boxes. Our team members will help you with this.
Our team members will also provide assistance in loading the cardboard boxes into your vehicle. No waiting, No fuss and no bad decisions. If you buy more than you need, we refund. We have even helped customers to make the boxes easy to carry if you are catching a bus.

Kennards Self Storage is one of the remaining places that takes pride in personal Customer Service. We stand by this, see what other have to say and look at our Google Reviews. We want and appreciate your business so we want to help you get what you need.

Kennards Self Storage boxes will get the job done. Our expertise means you will have the knowledge to buy the correct box. Packing some glass, we will show you the Crockery Box. Packing some files we will show you the Archive Box. We have over 20 options. Need to buy some cost effective boxes we will show you our used boxes. Our boxes are that durable that we think they can be used multiple times, so much so that we will do a buy back of boxes when bought new.

Business Storage
Kennards Self Storage has your business storage covered with:

• Contactless operation
• Cost-saving benefits – only pay for the time you need.
• Variety of sizes from lockers to mini warehouses with 24 hour access
• No lock-in contracts
• Complimentary moving equipment onsite (including walk-behind forklifts)
• All unused rent credited back on vacate.


It is not uncommon for a business to call and request additional space for a few weeks as they work through a new campaign, promotion or project. Once they have finished all unused rent is credited back.

In tough times large decentralised businesses are realising the value of an old adage. “Don’t pay office rents for storage”. Appreciating the value of leasing smaller retail or office spaces or not having one at all is proving far more advantageous with the cost efficiencies that are self storage. This has allowed them to keep things moving which has seen many businesses continue to operate safely and securely.

The nature of our business means we can run a contactless operation. Our customers lock the unit and keep the key.

Whether your business needs one storage unit, would like to decentralise or reduce storage suppliers, Kennards Self Storage has a range of products and services to use to help your business.
