Stor-Age Kempton Park Evolving to Community Needs
Kempton Park, an area known and loved for raising families, has evolved over the past few years. Although still considered a family-orientated suburb in Johannesburg, Kempton Park is also the location for many planned developments and the start of new businesses. The vast amount of space available adds to the overall residential growth of the area.
Stor-Age Kempton Park store has borne witness to this growth since its opening in 2012. A high number of estate developments have opened close to the store. As a result of this, the focus of the store has adjusted from a previously strong commercial base to an 84% residential and 16% commercial split.
Rodhan Govender, Operations Manager of Stor-Age Kempton Park comments, “Self storage offers the opportunity to declutter, this need seems to be on the increase in our area. We even have some clients who make money out of using our storage units. By using self storage to clear out spaces in their home, they are able to sublet their space and generate additional revenue through the likes of Airbnb.”
Airbnb is becoming increasingly popular in the area due to the suburb’s close proximity to the airport, which makes these homes ideal for business travellers looking for accommodation close to the airport.
In addition, there is also a noticeable rise in start-ups and SMEs in the area. Stor-Age Kempton Park provides space for these new businesses, allowing them to grow quickly.
Comments Rodhan, ‘’Life happens, and at Stor-Age Kempton Park we pride ourselves on helping make major transitions in life easier. I believe that this is one of the reasons why we are South Africa’s leading self storage brand. One of the main reasons our clients continuously use our service, is because of our convenient location and our state-of-the-art security that offers an increased sense of safety.’’
Our store not only serves clients from the Kempton Park area but also broader Johannesburg areas such as Edleen, Tembisa, Boksburg and Midrand, as well as Johannesburg City, Benoni and Bedfordview.
Regardless of where our customers are based, or why they need storage space, Stor-Age Kempton Park is focused on providing excellent customer service. A recent testimonial from a Stor-Age Kempton Park customer, Anton Pretorius, further shows this – “It was truly a refreshing experience to have dealt with someone that was not only extremely professional and knowledgeable on the services they offer, but also someone who is extremely friendly and courteous. Keep up the awesome world class service”.
