COVID-19 – Message from our CEO

March 27, 2020 by Sam Kennard

Message to customers (Updated March 27th, 2020).

The situation with Covid-19 is changing rapidly and our company is constantly adapting. New Zealand is now at Level 4.

We remain committed to the safety of our customers and employees, and also to sustaining the activities of the customers that use our services for a range of reasons. Despite the changes being implemented, all of the Kennards Self Storage team is committed to minimising any inconvenience and indeed will be providing an exceptional experience while also ensuring the highest level of safety.

Opening Hours – We remain open and are operating for Essential Businesses as described in the NZ Government Covid-19 website.

Access to your storage space is also permitted for people who need to retrieve essential items, e.g. fridges.

We are mindful that many of our customers support a range of industries that are essential. These include contractors, emergency activities, suppliers to health industry, infrastructure and also charities. We are an essential business as a link in the chain of supply to other businesses essential at this time. Our teams remain committed to support this important role.

Storage Enquiries – We encourage new enquiries for all future storage requirements. Please investigate our web site, or just please call us – our teams would appreciate all calls and interest for move-ins after the Level 4 lock down is lifted. All Level 4 Essential Business storage requirements would be available to move in at any time.

Hygiene – Our in store teams are undertaking a range of regular and thorough cleaning of common touch points. While hand sanitiser is also available.

We remember the importance of serving our customers at this time and appreciate that you have chosen Kennards Self Storage.
