What Do Kennards Self Storage And The Suburb Of Rosebud Have In Common?

March 28, 2022 by Fiona Harding

If you guessed Storage you are bang on. 

Beach huts, holiday homes and now a Kennards Self Storage. Sure, our huts may be a little different to those beach lined boat sheds but on the flip side they don’t come with the costly price tag.



Located 75km from Melbourne’s CBD, Rosebud is best known for its camping foreshore, bay trails for walkers and cyclists and iconic beach huts.  

When the opportunity came up to acquire Rosebud Mini Warehousing we jumped. It was a fitting location for our growing Melbourne portfolio. The centre offers 565 storage units across several parcels of land giving us plenty of room to grow and diversify. It also offers prime exposure located on the major arterial Boneo Road and the junction of the Mornington Peninsula Freeway. A tidy 2km walk to the waters edge. 

Through the pandemic we have seen the demand for Self Storage on the rise. Self Storage has given consumers the freedom to shake things up a little. In fact, we’ve seen it all, customers who have let go of their inner city 2-bedroom apartment to enjoy the coastal breeze. The couples who need to store the spare bed to make way for new home office. The retirees who got the phone call from the kids asking if they can move back in. That’s all before the surge in Jet Skis, Caravans and Boats. Self Storage gives customers the freedom to change without the long-term commitment. Customers can stay as long as they need. They call the shots. When it's time to go, we credit back all unused rent, no fixed lease, no hidden fees. Customers simply pay 1 month in advance. They Lock it and keep the key.  

So why choose Kennards Self Storage Rosebud? We provide an exceptional solution for customers looking for Self Storage in the following locations: Rosebud, Rosebud West, Boneo, Main Ridge, McCrae, Arthurs Seat, Main Ridge, Dromana, Red Hill, Safety Beach or anywhere along the Mornington Peninsula.

These digital recording are securely stored for future access and review if and/or when the need arises. In addition, we regularly monitor to enable swift repair of faults and to ensure that the system is always functioning as it should.
