Kent Storage Good Reviews

“Very happy with Kent. From the moment that we contacted them for a quote the entire team was professional and always taking an extra mile to deliver their service. Very flexible too as we needed to access some items while in storage. After 4 months we finally moved to our new home in the middle of COVID 19 lockdown and the team followed all the required precautions. Very understanding. Highly recommend Kent.”

  • We take special care of soft furnishings, including mattresses, couches, and chairs, and professionally wrap them with heavy-duty industrial plastic for added protection from mildew and moisture in storage

Unlike self-storage:

  • Kent Storage supplies industrial-grade wrapping to keep your belongings protected; you don’t have to rely on flimsy plastic that barely keeps your items bound together
  • Kent Storage gives you time back by handling all the wrapping and loading work for you; you don’t have to find the time to do it yourself
  • Kent Storage skillfully transports and protects your belongings in reinforced steel containers; you don’t have to make multiple risky trips on your own

  • It’s not your concern how you’ll ship your items to another site in Australia; Kent Storage will pick them up from your current storage unit and ship your things anywhere in the world

Kent Storage Darwin is the Most Secure Choice

Unlike self-storage, Kent Storage takes on the responsibility of keeping your belongings safe. For our Darwin customers, we implement several strict policies:

  • We do not allow the public to enter our storage facilities. On the other hand, self-storage buildings are shared and are easily accessible by people who shouldn’t be there.
  • We create and provide copies of our receipts, dispatch records, and inventory and condition reports. These documents allow you to remember what you’ve stored and reference individual items you’d like returned at any time.
  • Because we limit the number of people who are authorised to enter our facility, our buildings are naturally more secure than any self-service company could offer.
  • We use sealed storage containers instead of open-top boxes covered with wire meshes that vermin and dust can still penetrate.
  • Our storage containers are strictly purpose-built using reinforced steel. We keep them inside our secure facilities with CCTV monitoring and fire protection. Compare this to common self-storage solutions where you have a plywood box protected by little more than a breakable hasp.
  • We train our packers to be industry experts at stacking and packing belongings. With self-storage, the burden is on you to make sure you fit everything you have neatly and safely.

 

Kent’s Unique Four-Level Security System

All of Kent Storage’s Darwin customers benefit from our sophisticated four-level security system. We respect the amount of trust it takes to give away valuables you want to keep safe. As long as your belongings are with us, their security is our top priority above all else.

 

Security Level One: Customised Wrapping

Our refined guardian wrapping system includes:

  • Heavy-duty plastic covers designed to care for soft furnishings, including chairs, couches, and mattresses
  • Professional packing blankets to wrap around larger fragile items
  • Detailed inventory and labeling processes for your benefit
  • Professional packers with expert industry training
  • Boxes designed to protect certain items that are otherwise hard to package
  • Custom crates to protect fragile artwork

 

Security Level Two: Purpose Built Containers

Good protection starts at the beginning: When our expert removalists arrive to pick up your items, they load them directly into reinforced steel containers for safekeeping during transit. When they arrive at the facility, our staff uses forklifts and cranes to safely tuck the container away in a climatised, monitored environment.

Our containers are:

  • Accessible on two ends using customised doors
  • Built with the intention of safeguarding items in motion and in long-term storage
  • Designed with reinforced steel for the best possible protection

 

Security Level Three: Superior Storage Facilities

Our facilities have advanced protection to keep them safe in public, ensuring their superior security in the Southern Hemisphere. Our facilities are:

  • Climatised
  • Monitored under CCTV and fire protection with a back-to-base alarm
  • Purpose-built structures with state-of-the-art technology
  • Free from pests, dust, and the natural elements
  • Private with limited authorisation

 

Security Level Four: Storage Insurance

We offer our Ultimate Cover insurance as a final layer of protection. We know that accidents can happen at any time due to no fault of our own, including incidents that occur on the road or in our facilities. It is impossible to predict every possible scenario, which is why we offer comprehensive insurance for your belongings.

Our Ultimate Cover insurance includes full risk protection against accidental loss or damage to your stored or transported items. We offer the following policies:

  • New for Old: Covers the repair or replacement cost for any damaged or totally destroyed items. Please note that we can only insurance clothing, computers, computer accessories, motorbikes, and motor vehicles for their market value.
  • Pairs and Sets: Covers the damage or loss of an article in a pair or a set, including lounge sets
  • Atmospheric and Climatic Conditions: Covers damage due to normal atmospheric or climatic conditions, including mould.
  • Electrical and Mechanical Derangement: Covers the electronic or mechanical derangement or damage of items for a wide range of causes, including accidents in transit and storage.

Kent Storage is the only sensible solution for Darwin storage needs.

We have developed and refined our processes so we can store more items efficiently and for less money. That means we can pass the savings onto you; you don’t pay for unused space.

We charge you only for the volume of your stored items, which translates to the cheapest rates every time. We adjust your rates if you add or remove more things to your container.

Are you planning to move to Darwin? You can either choose self-storage or a full-service storage company like Kent Storage.

With self-service, you rent a truck or storage unit and keep your things in it until you’re ready to get them back. You pay for the storage unit and pay more if you want to add an insurance policy. If you don’t want to deal with the packing and transportation, you’ll have to spend more money hiring movers to do it for you. With Kent Storage, you pay one fee and relax while we take care of the physical labor.

To decide which option is best for you, ask yourself a few questions.

Which is More Convenient?

As the name suggests, self-service storage means you have to take care of everything yourself. If you don’t know how to pack efficiently, this scenario can have problematic results. You may inefficiently pack things together in such a way that you believe you need to rent a second container.

Kent Storage trains its experts on best industry practices and couples them with its stackable storage solutions to ensure there’s always enough space for whatever you need to store.

 

How Much is Each Service?

Costs always govern each decision you make. Generally, self-service plans are affordable since you only pay for a few things and take care of the rest yourself.

With a full-service company like Kent Storage, you don’t have to save money by doing physical labor. We handle all of the work and only charge half the price of any self-storage business.

 

Which is More Reliable?

Most self-storage units are outside and not airtight. If it rains in Darwin, the moisture could enter your storage container and damage everything inside. You may be able to upgrade to an indoor unit for an additional fee.

With Kent Storage, the price you pay is always for indoor storage. We also maintain inventory reports to assist our tracking of your belongings.

Kent Storage Darwin for your home and office furniture storage is:

  • Easier: We have developed a superior storage process in our 70-year history. You’re just a phone call away from hiring our expert removalists; they’ll travel anywhere in Darwin or Australia to pick up any of your belongings from home, the office, or another storage unit.

  • More Secure: We prioritise the security and safety of all your things. We rely on 24/7 security with the help of our unique four-level secure storage system.
  • Cheaper: We never charge you for space you don’t use. If you ask us to redeliver a portion of your stored items, we’ll adjust the rates so you pay less for the volume you are no longer using.

Kent Storage is the best choice for storage in Darwin. We’ll conveniently pick up, store, and redeliver anything for 50 percent of the cost of self-storage.
