There’s a Buzz at Pymble

There is a little buzz at Kennards Self Storage Pymble as our mini centre expansion is now completed and renting up.

With 121 extra storage spaces added (and more to come) this means we can keep providing a wide range of storage unit sizes to ensure you get value from taking the size you really need.

Of course these new spaces follow the original features of the Pymble centre such as individual alarms, 24 hour PIN coded access, smooth gliding roller doors and a bright airy fit-out and lighting.

Kennards Self Storage Hoxton Park Expands Into Hardware

The Team at Kennards Self Storage Hoxton Park are excited to announce the fit-out works for the much-anticipated expansion of their 2 Lyn Parade storage centre has commenced.

Centre manager, Bianca Golban and her Team have been working toward this milestone for much of the past year. “We’ve been serving the neighbourhood next door to the Bunnings and Officeworks since opening in 2008. The original 770 spaces in their various sizes were perfect for the needs of our customers at the time and we’re pleased with our growth over those years. Due to the shape of the building, one weakness we’ve had is a shortage for Ground Floor and Driveway accessible spaces. We were never able to keep up with the demand from our customers for these types of spaces. This expansion into the area vacated by Bunnings solves that weakness” Said Bianca.

The centre opened in 1984 with around 540 storage spaces. At the time, secure gate access, hoist access to upper levels and smooth glide roller doors were an innovation. Sometime later Kennards Hire relocated from the south-western yard on the corner permitting the use of the space for larger vehicle and container storage.
