Find storage near you

We’ve made moving easier!

June 11, 2015 by Andrew Kirkham

It is amazing how even the simplest move of some small furniture or a few boxes of assorted contents can be challenging, if not frustrating and difficult. Removalists normally have minimum charges and you have to be home or available when it suits them – there must be an easier alternative.

We share your frustration here at Kennards and think we have a good solution – an EMU! Haha you might be thinking what’s has a giant bird got to do with it – well nothing really. At Kennards Self Storage, an EMU is an acronym for Easy Moving Unit, being a specially designed moving van that will make any move easier, safer and more cost efficient than you think.

The features of the Easy Moving Unit include:

• Automatic – just like driving a car;
• Low base with large rear opening doors and sliding door on the side;
• Large – up to 12 cubic meters, perfect for a tall fridge or large lounge suite;
• Fully enclosed so no matter what the weather, everything is secure and dry;
• Hand Trucks & trolleys available to help carry large and heavy items;
• Free use of tie downs, straps and blankets to protect your contents;
• Hire by the hour, half of full day – much cheaper than a rental company;
• Air Conditioning, radio and a comfortable seat.

We have started to roll out our EMU’s at our Auckland sites in Mt Eden and Three Kings. Booking is simple, but we recommend you book in advance as they have become very popular. Pick up is easy – flash your Driver’s License, sign the Hire Agreement and your set.

So the next time you need to move, try our EMU and experience an easier way to move, you will not regret it!
