- Professionally protect your furniture, especially soft furnishings like couches, mattresses, and chairs, using heavy-duty industrial-grade plastic supplied by Kent Storage. This removals-grade plastic allows us to transport your fragile belongings and keep them protected from mildew, moisture, dust, and dirt while in long-term storage.

Kent Storage is More Secure Than Self-Storage
At Kent Storage, our goal is to do more for less. That’s why, in sharp contrast to our self-storage competitors, we prioritise taking the utmost care of your belongings:
- We offer more security and safety with our facilities because they’re private; the public cannot enter our warehouses, unlike self-storage buildings that are shared and easily accessible by anyone.
- We seal all of our storage containers, unlike units at self-storage facilities with wide-open tops. The large-diametre wire mesh that serves as a ceiling doesn’t keep out dust, vermin, or thieves.
- Our purpose-built storage containers are built with the strongest reinforced steel. We keep them inside our buildings, which are closely monitored with a 24/7 CCTV setup. Compare this to self-storage facilities that simply leave a plywood box inside a public building.
- We expertly train our professional packers to efficiently and carefully load your belongings for transportation and long-term storage. Compare this to self-storage, where the burden of figuring out the best way to put away your things is entirely yours.
Our Unique Four-Level Security System
Over the years, Kent Storage has refined its unique security protection system to ensure the long-term safety of stored belongings. We understand how much trust it takes to allow someone else to keep your treasures safe, so we offer this security system to every Kent customer. As long as we care for your items, we will prioritise their safety.
Security Level One: Customised Wrapping
Our Guardian Wrapping System includes:
- Comprehensive labelling process
- Robust inventory system
- Use of professional packing blankets designed to keep large, fragile items safe
- Boxes specifically constructed to protect large, hard-to-box items
- Heavy-duty removals-grade plastic covers keep the moisture out of your couches, chairs, and mattresses
- Expertly-trained packers with long professional histories
- Custom artwork crates
Security Level Two: Purpose Built Containers
Unlike self-storage businesses, Kent Storage directly loads your belongings into our purpose-built steel containers at the pickup site. We then safely transport them back to our warehouses and use state-of-the-art crane and forklift technology to put them away. Our process reduces the danger of damage and the expense of double handling.
Our containers are:
- Constructed from the best reinforced steel for top-notch protection
- Purpose-built to keep your valuables safe at all times
- Built with doors on either end for easy access
Security Level Three: Superior Storage Facilities

- Monitored 24/7 with CCTV security systems and fire control
- Purpose-built structures with state-of-the-art technology
- Private and prohibit public entry
- Free from thieves, dust, and pests
Security Level Four: Storage Insurance
Kent’s Ultimate Cover insurance offers full risk protection if your items are damaged or lost during transportation for any reason, including accidents. Accidents through no fault of our own can occur at any time, so we developed this insurance to keep you safe.
- New For Old: Full replacement cost if your items are destroyed or lost during transit. We will also pay a reasonable amount to cover repairs if the item is damaged. We can only insure motor vehicles, trailers, boats, caravans, motorbikes, clothing, computers, and computer accessories for their market value.
- Pairs and Sets: Covers you if one or more items in a pair or set are damaged during transit or storage.
- Atmospheric and Climatic Conditions: We cover the damage or loss of items damaged from mould, mildew, or other normal climatic conditions.
- Electrical/Mechanical Derangement: Covers the electrical/mechanical derangement or breakdown of goods kept in storage or during transit.

Additionally, don’t waste your precious time running backwards and forwards to your storage box/unit; Kent will redeliver some or all your items, as and when you need them, straight to your doorstep, or literally anywhere else in the world. Or, with just 24-48 hours’ notice, we can arrange secure access to your container during business hours.
- More Secure: Don’t be fooled by our low rates – affordability does not require a compromise on the safety or security of your belongings. We value your belongings as if they are our own. That’s why we protect them 24/7 with our unique Four-Level Secure Storage System
- Cheaper: Unlike other storage businesses with higher per metre property and overhead costs, where they have to charge you for your entire storage box/unit regardless of how much you store inside it, Kent’s stackable containerised storage solution is more efficient and less costly. And what’s better, you don’t pay for empty space – we only charge you for the volume of the storage you need! So add to your storage, or take items out, and we’ll adjust your rates accordingly.
