Kennards Self Storage Wellington Opens!

February 03, 2014 by Andrew Kirkham

We are excited to announce that Kennards Self Storage has opened at 19 Hutt Road Thorndon, Wellington. Located close to the CBD of Wellington and nearby to the Westpac Stadium, the storage centre is in a great position to service the whole Wellington region. The successful acquisition of this new site will see Kennards rebrand an existing storage centre that was in receivership.

While we are about to rebrand the site with our corporate colours, we have made some immediate enhancements including the setup of the Kennards Box Shop with a full range of boxes, locks and packing supplies and the introduction of 24/7 access and online storage enquiries and reservations. We look forward to updating you all on our progress in the near future. Until then, here are some good reasons to Keep it at Kennards Self Storage Wellington.

Business / Commercial Needs – Storage is not always just for personal or household reasons, you would be surprised how many businesses use self storage as an extra space in which to store. With No Bond, No Lease and No Legals, Kennards Self Storage can work out more efficient than expanding the business or shop and quite often it is not possible to carry out expansions in our already built up areas. There are also business storage options that have tax saving benefits with Kennards Self Storage in Wellington.

Expansions – If you are planning to expand your home or business, you sometimes need to move things out of the way to protect them from the damage that might occur. It is always better to move things out of the way rather than work around them. So by putting your things into self storage you can protect your possessions during your expansion.

Travelling – All Kiwis are born travellers! Everyone gets the urge to up sticks and travel around the world, which is where self storage could be a brilliant alternative to just selling all of your things at a loss and then regretting it when you eventually come back. Whether you are a family going around the globe or just a couple going abroad for a year, Kennards Self Storage in Wellington is centrally located to Thorndon, Karori, Milton, Mt Cook, Lower Hutt and Upper Hutt. It’s an excellent way of storing your possessions but not having to worry about spreading them out amongst family members and friends. Insuring your goods is also an available option which does not put a burden on sums insured with family members storing your goods on your behalf.
