After acquiring the former Storage King in Hutt Road Thorndon, Kennards have invested to rectify deficiencies in the building and alter the mix of sizes available to better suit customer requirements.
Inexperience of previous owners had meant the storage centre suffered poor unit mix and had failed to comply with construction requirements.
The changes implemented by Kennards have proven successful resulting in a significant lift in customer numbers. Kennards have now also finalised approvals to expand the storage centre. The final build-out stage involves fitting out vacant areas and adding new floors.
There will be 150 new spaces including 18 mini warehouses.
Significantly, the investment will further improve the NBS rating of the entire building.
In addition, customer access will be greatly improved, providing additional access areas.
Kennards have also introduced Wine Storage at the Wellington centre with its unique range of private climate controlled cellars.
Once complete, Kennards Self Storage Wellington will have over 1,100 storage spaces and be the largest in the New Zealand’s capital.
