PREPARING FOR STORAGE
How does Kent Storage work?
Kent Storage has a storage solution to suit any requirement and budget. More convenient than traditional Self Storage, Kent Storage is flexible and delivers storage to you. We have a variety of affordable storage options to suit any budget and timeframe.
How quickly can I get storage?
Our storage service operates from Monday through to Saturday. We are closed on public holidays and there will be limited service over Christmas and New Year’s. We recommend you book in advance to guarantee your delivery and pick-up times.
How much does your storage cost?
The cost of your storage space will depend on two key factors:
- How much you need to store?
- How long you require storage?
You can use our online self-storage quote tool to estimate the volume of your valuables.
Alternatively, we can arrange an in-home visit from one of our Storage consultants for a more accurate assessment.
Then select your desired delivery date and proceed with your booking, which will be confirmed with a call from one of our Storage Consultants.
Do you sell packing materials and cartons?

Cartons are double thickness and made from environmentally friendly materials. Packing materials and cartons are available for purchase, speak to your Storage Consultant.
