Situations that Require Storage

The recession has an effect on everyone. If businesses have felt the need to downsize, don’t you think many families in the Middle East might have done so too? Apparently, a shortage of space leads to a shortage of free space to garner your possessions. You cannot just dump your choicest things into a basement. You need to care for them and keep them safe. Thus storage facilities in Dubai make a good solution to the problem. Here are some ideal situations that require a Dubai storage company
While shifting to a new home / office, a Dubai moving service (normally part and parcel of a storage facility) will gladly help you relocate all your items, especially the unmanageable things. On the other hand, if you just need storage services to keep your belongings till the time you are settled, there is a space for everything you wish to store in any storage facility in UAE. This way you won’t misplace any item during your relocation process.
Another time you really require storage, is while renovating your house /office. Keeping your things at a facility will also render more space for your workers to do their job well.
Things like heirlooms, musical instruments, sports equipment, seasonal goods (like decorations, winter clothing, etc.) and antiques that faultlessly occupy a lot of space in your house can also be stored and maintained at a storage unit.
Quite naturally, The Box also looks after storage needs in Dubai. For more information, visit:

Small-Engine Vehicles

It is not a good idea to think that your small-engine vehicles like scoters, golf-carts, lawn mowers, etc. do not require maintenance. Such vehicles need as much attention as you give your car or a truck. During winter, these vehicles can easily deteriorate and get ruined. Therefore, small-engine vehicles are never abandoned in a storage facility in Dubai.
Take the example of a golf-cart. Putting such a vehicle away, depending upon the particular season it is not in use, can damage it profusely in several ways. Owners of golf-carts usually have a misconception about the maintenance and storage of one. It is assumed that shielding your small engine vehicle from the harsh weather is the only thing that can be done to protect it. Yes. Protection from the elements is required. But storing such vehicles at a particular temperature is also important, according to storage solution experts in UAE. This will prevent it from corroding. The battery also has to be disconnected and stored separately. It has to be kept clean, away from heat. A poorly maintained battery is mostly the problem in a small-engine vehicle.
Different small- engine vehicles have different maintenance procedures. That is why it is safest to pass on your worries to a storage solution in Dubai especially during the winters. The maintenance teams at Dubai storage companies are well aware of how to take care of big as well as small vehicles. Along with documents and seasonal goods The Box also stores and maintains vehicles.

Dubai needs Wine Storage too

Dubai has become one of the main business and tourist destinations of the world. With people of different ethnic and cultural backgrounds visiting and moving to UAE from all over the world, the popularity of the wine market has been increasing tremendously. This is why wine storage facilities in Dubai are also given prime importance.
A liquor license is required by non -Muslim resident consumers in Dubai, as the sale and consumption is strictly controlled. To top that, hotels and distributors in Dubai face a huge problem stocking wine as they have extensively long lists. But then again, in order to maintain the level of tourism in the city, good wine needs to be imported time and again. Distributors in Dubai further face the problem of storing the wine that remains unsold. As a distributor, the lack of large storage spaces like those provided by a full-fledged storage facility in Dubai also prevent you from buying or stocking new wine. The inability to store wines at a good temperature also leads to its spoilage and wastage. Therefore, a climate controlled facility at a storage company in Dubai that is fully equipped, becomes your ideal option.
As mentioned earlier, the popularity of the wine market has been increasing in Dubai. As the wine market is directly proportional to the growth of the tourism industry, wine storage facilities in UAE have been developing for good. The Box also provides climate controlled facilities for storing a variety of goods. Visit for details.
