Self Storage Prices Wollongong

Congratulations!! You bought a house, or you sold one! There are many reasons we move homes in our lives and we do it a lot.

The Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) report from the Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research is the result of three consecutive years’ survey covering 7,682 households and 19,914 individuals, with adult members of each household interviewed annually. The report shows that 25.3 per cent of the people who were interviewed in all three years had moved house at least once since their first interview in 2001.The overall average time spent at the current address is about ten years, but people between the ages of 20 and 35 stay in the same place for shorter periods than older people. The average length of time for a 25 to 34 year old to stay in one home is around four years, compared to approximately 20 years for those over the age of 65.The HILDA Survey shows that frequency of moving house is related mainly to income, age and whether children are part of the household.

Once you do move home you may need to hold your goods in a secure location for a period of time. Storage Facilities like Kennards Self Storage Wollongong aim to solve this part of the equation by providing spaces that can accommodate all sorts of things.

The next step is to find a Storage facility that can fit a budget. Kennards Self Storage Wollongong can help with Price on two counts. Firstly, the Team of Matthew and Belinda can find you the perfectly sized space. They will ask you some questions to make sure you are not paying for space you do not need. They have over 50 different sizes and they can find a space that was purpose built for you!!

The second thing is that we are about to complete a new build on site at our Wollongong facility adding a new building with three new levels and providing almost 1,000 spaces. Having that many new spaces provides you with a whole lot of choice.

We encourage everyone to think of three things when you compare Storage prices. Are the spaces at different places the same. Consider the cleanliness, age and position of the space. Are there enough trolleys or lifts if you are storing on an upper level.

The third thing to consider is if you have the confidence that your belongings will be secure. Kennards Self Storage has spaces that are individually alarmed with back to base monitoring. The whole facility has only one access point, a big blue gate that requires a personal pin number to get through. 24 hour access means you can come day or night and even on public Holidays.

Finally, Kennards Self Storage has no lease storage. The price reflects a period of one month’s storage. You will not be locked into strict payment periods. If you pay for a month and no longer need the space after two weeks and move out, Mathew and Belinda will do a pro-rata refund of the period you did not use saving you real money!

The aim of Kennards Self Storage is to have clean secure spaces and set fair Storage unit prices that reflect the type of storage we have. All prices are on the Website, where you can get a quote and even rent a space, or contact Matthew and Belinda they would love to hear from you and help you through this process.
