More Secure Than Self-Storage
Why is Kent Storage the obvious winner over self-storage? We actually take care of your valuables:
- We strictly limit the public from accessing our private storage facilities. With self-storage, your treasures are left in a shared building that anyone with a keycard or PIN can access.
- We create detailed reports and dispatch records that help you keep track of your inventory over long periods. With self-storage, it’s up to you to create these inventory and condition reports because you’re the one who has to deliver and pack the items in the first place.
- We install superior security compared to self-storage, which includes our strict access policy. With self-storage, anyone with a keycard or PIN can enter the building and could steal or destroy your belongings.
- We strictly use sealed, purpose-built storage containers meant to protect your things from external threats. With self-storage, you usually store your belongings in open-top containers with little more than a large-diametre wire mesh to keep dust, vermin, open air, and thieves out.
- We build our storage containers with purpose using reinforced steel, keeping them safe in our 24/7 CCTV-monitored facilities. With self-storage, your only protection from external dangers is a flimsy hasp on a plywood box that is barely functional.
- We train our staff to expertly pack items skillfully and carefully. With self-storage, you are the expert who must figure out the best way to store your items without any help from the staff.
Kent’s Time-Tested Four-Level Security System
At Kent Storage, we’ve developed a time-tested four-level security system to maximise the protection of your stored belongings. Every customer benefits from this system; we know how important it is for you to have placed your trust in us, and we will do everything to prioritise their care.
Security Level One: Custom Industrial-Grade Wrapping
Our unique guardian wrapping system includes:
- Heavy-duty plastic covers to further protect soft furniture, including couches, chairs, and mattresses
- Professional packers with expert training
- Boxes specifically constructed to protect certain hard-to-package items
- Comprehensive labelling and inventory processes for superior tracking
- Professional packing blankets to keep your large fragile items safe during transit
- Custom crating available for art work and other valuable, fragile items
Security Level Two: Purpose-Built Containers
Unlike self-storage companies, our expert removalists will load your belongings directly into our containers during pick-up. These containers, made with reinforced steel, then go into our buildings with the help of crane and forklift technology. We minimise the number of hands involved in the process, which reduces the expense of double handling and the risk of accidentally damaging something.
Our state-of-the-art containers are:
- Built with the sole purpose of safeguarding your valuables in storage and transit
- Made out of reinforced steel to maximise protection
- Accessible from doors at both ends for easy access
Security Level Three: Superior Storage Facilities
Our undercover storage facilities have the most advanced security systems in the Southern Hemisphere. Ken Storage guarantees that its facilities are:
- Completely private and do not permit public entry
- Built with purpose using state-of-the-art technology
- Fire monitored and protected by CCTV security day and night
- Equipped with a back-to-base alarm
- Free from dust, pests, and natural elements
Security Level Four: Storage Insurance
Finally, Kent Storage takes it all one step further because we know that unexpected things can happen. Even though our professional removalists are fully trained and take as much care as possible, your valuables are still at some risk during transit and storage. Accidents caused by nobody at all can damage property, which is why we offer storage and transit insurance as further protection.
With Kent Ultimate Cover insurance, you are fully protected against loss or damage caused by accidents while in transit or storage:
- Full replacement cost for completely destroyed or lost items, or a reasonable cost to repair if the item is damaged. We can only insure computers, clothing, motor vehicles, trailers, caravans, boats, and motorbikes for market value.
- Pairs and sets coverage for damage of one or more articles in a pair or set.
- Atmospheric and climatic conditions coverage for damage from normal climatic or atmospheric conditions, including mould and mildew.
- Electrical and mechanical derangement coverage for the mechanical or electronic breakdown of goods absent the evidence or an insured event. Motor vehicles, caravans, motorbikes, and boats are exempt from this coverage.
Please get in touch with a Kent Storage representative to receive an insurance brochure for more detailed information.
