Kent Storage: The Easy, Secure, Affordable Solution

Kent Storage Hobart goes above and beyond to make it easy for every customer.

Unlike self-storage:

  • You don’t need to inventory your belongings to remember what’s stored where. Likewise, we provide condition reports to help you know what condition your items were in when we stored them.
  • We can easily and conveniently retrieve any specific items you want from your inventory. Likewise, we’re happy to ship the entire contents of your container back home or somewhere else in Australia.
  • Our expert removalists supply and use professional heavy-duty plastic to keep your furniture safe. We take extra care to protect soft furnishings, including couches, chairs, and mattresses, bound for long-term storage to prevent moisture damage.

Unlike self-storage:

  • You don’t have to rely on poor-quality plastic that is too flimsy to bind your belongings, much less protect them. Kent Storage uses industrial-grade wrapping and supplies them.
  • You don’t have to find the time to wrap and pack your furniture alone. Kent Storage sends expert removalists to take care of it while you resume your normal day-to-day activities.
  • Our removalists are trained to efficiently and safely stack your belongings into our purpose-built storage containers, eliminating the risks associated with double handling. Plus, you won’t have to lift a finger yourself.

Unlike self-storage:

  • We’ll handle lugging around the furniture and heavy boxes.
  • Our expert removalists bring their years of training so you don’t have to guess the best way to do everything yourself.
  • We pick up your valuables from any location in Australia, including items stored in another storage unit in another city.

Unlike self-storage:

  • You don’t have to spend money hiring a moving truck.
  • You don’t have to encourage family members to help you move.
  • You don’t have to struggle to squeeze every last item in a small storage box.

At Kent Storage, we’ll deliver your valuables into our state-of-the-art facility for any length of time. Have peace of mind knowing that you’re trusting the best in the Southern Hemisphere to get the job done. Just ask our millions of satisfied Australian customers.

More Secure Than Self-Storage

Unlike self-storage, Kent Storage goes above and beyond to prioritise the safety of your belongings:

  • Our facilities are private facilities that strictly limit authorised visitors to staff and Kent customers with appointments. Self-storage facilities, on the other hand, are shared buildings that allow anyone to traverse the property.
  • We only use sealed storage containers. Self-storage facilities usually rely on boxes with open tops, covered by little more than a large-diametre wire mesh that exposes your belongings to the open air, vermin, dust, and theft.
  • Our purpose-built storage containers are strictly built with reinforced steel, and we monitor them with our state-of-the-art CCTV security system. Self-storage facilities merely give you the right to a plywood box and hasp, and some don’t even provide you with a lock.
  • We expertly train our professional packers to efficiently and safely pack up your belongings so you don’t have to. Self-storage offers no such labor, so the burden is on you to arrange your things in the box.

 

Kent Storage’s Four-Level Security System

Kent Storage makes its four-level security system available to all Australians. We understand how much trust it takes to hand your valuables over to someone else for their protection. Keeping your belongings safe is our number one priority, and we show that at each level of our security process.

 

Security Level One: Customised Wrapping

We created a Guardian Wrapping System that includes:

  • Expertly-trained professional packers
  • Heavy-duty removals-grade plastic covers designed to protect soft furnishings, including mattresses, couches, and chairs
  • Boxes built to protect large items that are otherwise difficult to cover
  • Supplying and using professional packing blankets to keep large, fragile items
  • Custom crates to protect unusually-shaped artwork or other valuable items
  • Comprehensive inventory process and labelling system

 

Security Level Two: Purpose-Built Containers

Unlike self-storage, we eliminate the risk of double handling by bringing the storage container directly to your doorstep. This process allows us to load your items directly into protective boxes at the pickup site. We then load the containers on our truck and deliver them to our facilities, putting them away with the help of crane and forklift technology.

Our containers are:

  • Purpose-built to keep your valuables safe during transit and long-term storage
  • Constructed strictly using reinforced steel for the best possible protection
  • Customised with double doors so we can access them from both ends

 

Security Level Three: Superior Storage Facilities

Our undercover storage facilities are the most advanced in the Southern Hemisphere, which allows us to maintain superior security compared to self-storage warehouses. Kent Storage facilities are:

  • Private as they do not allow public entry at any location
  • State-of-the-art structures built with security in mind
  • Monitored 24/7 via CCTV security and fire control systems
  • Fully equipped with back-to-base alarms and patrols
  • Free from pests, dust, and outdoor exposure
  • Climatised to prevent mould and mildew

 

Security Level Four: Transit and Storage Insurance

Despite having 70 years of experience taking the utmost care of over a million Australians, it’s impossible to eliminate the risk of loss or damage completely. Sometimes accidents occur through no fault of anyone, which is why Kent Storage now offers transit and storage insurance for an added layer of protection.

Our Ultimate Cover insurance provides Hobart customers with full cover risk protection in the event of loss or damage due to external causes, including accidents.

  • New For Old: We cover lost or destroyed items or pay a reasonable cost for damaged items. We can only insure computers, computer accessories, clothing, motor vehicles, and trailers for their market value.
  • Pairs and Sets: We cover lost or damaged items that are part of a pair or set, including outdoor lounge suites.
  • Atmospheric and Climatic Conditions: We cover damage caused by mould, mildew, and other normal atmospheric and climatic conditions.
  • Electrical/Mechanical Derangement: We cover the electronic, electrical, and mechanical derangement or breakdown of goods stored with Kent Storage.

Please get in touch with one of our staff members to obtain an insurance brochure for more detailed information.

If you’re moving to Hobart and need a cheap but safe storage solution, then Kent Storage is a perfect fit; we don’t compromise on security at rates half as expensive as self-storage.

Best of all, unlike other businesses that charge more per metre, we will never charge you for the entire container unless you use that much space. Our stackable container solutions allow us to be more efficient with our storage, and we pass that savings on to you; you only pay for the space you use and not a bit more. If you ask us to return enough items to reduce volume, we’ll automatically adjust the rate so you pay less.

The Difference Between Kent Storage and Self-Storage

Are you planning to move to Hobart? There are two main storage facility types to choose between.

Self-storage facilities are the most popular choice, and most people think about public buildings when they talk about storage. Public warehouses are open to anyone to enter, though most places at least require a key code to pass through a gate. Beyond that, it’s entirely up to you to keep your belongings safe, including providing your own lock.

Kent Storage facilities include a complete suite of services, including pick-up and delivery from your doorstep to our warehouse. We have much more secure rooms and a more robust way of maintaining and organising inventory compared to self-storage. Not only that, but our facilities also strictly prohibit public entry. If you want to visit your container in person, provide us with 24 to 48 hours’ notice; we will arrange to put your receptacle in a secure but accessible area for you to visit during regular business hours.

Kent Storage Hobart is:

  • Easier: Our entire process is more efficient, easier, and less stressful than any other storage solution in Australia. You’re just one phone call away from arranging to have your belongings picked up and carefully delivered to your receptacle from anywhere on the continent. We’ll even travel to your current storage unit and empty it.
  • More Secure: Don’t let our traditionally low prices fool you. Our goal of providing affordable storage solutions to every Australian doesn’t compromise our goal of providing secure services. We treat your belongings as if they were our own, which is why we keep them protected through our unique four-level security system.
  • Cheaper: Unlike other Australian storage companies with higher overhead costs, we don’t have to charge you for the entire box regardless of what you keep in it. Our containerised solution is less expensive and more efficient for everyone involved. Never pay for space you don’t use with Kent Storage.

Kent Storage picks up, packs, stores, and redelivers home and office goods for up to 50 percent cheaper than any self-storage company in the Southern Hemisphere. We’re the perfect choice for your Hobart storage needs.
