- You don’t have to maintain your own records about what you’ve left with us, nor the condition the items are in
- We will happily retrieve and redeliver individual items listed on your inventory report or ship the entire container to another location across the globe.
- Kent professionally wraps your valuables, especially soft furnishings like mattresses, chairs, and couches, in heavy-duty industrial-grade plastic provided by Kent for free. This plastic keeps furniture protected from moisture and mildew.

More Secure Than Self-Storage
Kent goes above and beyond to offer superior care for your belongings, unlike self-storage:
- We do not allow the public to enter our warehouses at any time for any reason, unlike self-storage facilities that anyone can access with a simple keycode.
- We provide detailed condition reports, inventory lists, receipts, and dispatch documentation so that you can keep track of your belongings without leaving your home. Compare this to self-storage where you’re the only one who can record what you leave in the box.
- Our warehouses have more robust security than self-storage, especially since they are private and have no public traffic.
- Our containers are completely sealed, unlike self-storage boxes with wire meshes covering the top. These meshes only provide the illusion of security as they’re too large to keep thieves and vermin out.
- We strictly use purpose-built containers made with reinforced steel, storing them in our state-of-the-art monitored buildings for their protection. Compare this to self-storage solutions that give you little more than a hasp to keep your wooden box safe in a publicly-accessible building.
- Kent sends our expert staff to skillfully and conveniently pack up your belongings. With self-storage, it’s up to you to figure out the safest and fastest way to arrange your things in one container.

This process allows us to significantly reduce the risks and costs associated with double handling equipment.
