From our dawning as a single storage facility in Lower Hutt in 1999, All Secure Self Storage has developed into a nationwide company with facilities at 9 locations across New Zealand. Led by the initiative of founders Keith Edwards and Peter James, our company has continually delivered high-quality service and innovative security measures within the self storage industry for over 20 years.

All Secure Self Storage found its beginnings in the minds of Keith Edwards and Peter James in 1999. Whilst holidaying in Australia, Keith saw the opportunity that Self Storage offered, simultaneously, Peter read of the same opportunity in Robert Kiyosaki’s book Rich Dad, Poor Dad. At Keith’s instigation, land was purchased in Lower Hutt for the construction of a Self-Storage Facility. At a Self Storage conference in Australia, Keith met our current software providers StorMan, our current builders Storco, and had his carefully designed plans ripped up and redesigned by Sam Kennard of Kennards Self Storage over a beer at the bar.
