Loving Books Is Not a Crime

document storage service
It is usually hard to get children, teenagers or anyone else for that matter to read books. But as we grow older and do happen to like novels, magazines, digests, etc. we land up facing the problem of storing each and every book we love. Therefore someday or another in our bookish lives, it will be necessary to store away some of them at a storage facility in Dubai.

If storage was to be as simple as tossing your precious books into big bag or an old box, document storage facilities in Dubai would never have existed.

Storage facilities take adequate measures to keep your books safe. They do all they can to save them from withering and to prevent the pages from fading. They clean them from time to time and also pack them, keeping them away from damaging and destructive elements. Storage companies in UAE like The Box ensure that your books are stored in mint condition by protecting them from mildew, corrosion and staining. They use magnetic dry cloth to wipe hardbacks. They also check the books for bookmarks, flowers, leaves and other things that need to be removed from between pages. Objects like these are acidic. They could spoil or discolour the pages of your book in no time.

These are only a few of the many precautions The Box takes to ensure adequate book storage. To learn more about our document storage services, visit

Going Green through Self Storage

storage company
The ubiquitousness of ‘going green’ is prominent these days. Manufacturers know about it, service industries are aware of it and consumers are fascinated as well as touched by it. People know about the different ways in which they can help the environment, but not many of them are able to do so. Hence they appreciate the eco-friendly attempts of others. This is why few storage facilities in Dubai have participated in the push to operate on a greener basis.

If you have decided to help the storage industry, why not do it in the green manner? It is understood that those who have decided to purchase a franchise with a storage company in UAE, may not have enough funds initially. So here is what you can do:

Whenever you have to get rid of something, form the habit of segregating and disposing it in the best possible way. For example: batteries, bulbs, cardboard, etc. can be recycled. Consumers feel good about your company when they know you act responsibly towards the environment. In the same intention, use the idea of planting more trees within the compound of your Dubai storage company. Use it to make a nice garden. If there poses a logistic problem, dedicate a storage unit towards the growth of hydroponic plants. Organizations looking forward to operate will surely help you monetarily in exchange for some publicity.

These ideas will surely help your business prosper as it will drive genuine customers towards using your services. Explore franchise opportunities at The Box by calling our office. Our website:

Businesses Can Use More Space during DSF

You hardly hear of a business that doesn’t want more clients. As your business grows you will need to store more papers, office equipment, make more space for more employees to fit into your office, etc. Thus your office ultimately tends to require more space. In other words, the sign of a growing business now-a-days is an unorganized office environment. This is akin to the situation taking place in the city of Dubai during the Dubai Shopping Festival.

Small offices can fill up very easily in Dubai just because of the amount of work, clients and business brought in by the DSF each year. Thus it is usual to see office spaces all cramped up. But you cannot just remove anything out of your office to make more space as it would be too costly to do so. Therefore smart business owners always have a storage unit at hand to save them from frequent situations like these. The storage facilities in Dubai are very economical. You can store all the office equipment and documents which you may not require often in your rented storage space. You can also store batches of unused computers, filing cabinets, etc. in an inexpensive storage unit like The Box, compared to buying more office space for the purpose.

The moment you start using a storage unit in Dubai, you will easily make out the difference in the physical appearance of your office. It will look bigger and organized. Besides, a neat office always creates a good impression on your clients and also motivates your employees to work better.

Customer Service at THE BOX

storage company
Aid in Motion couldn't be more grateful towards the hospitality and generosity shown to us by the teams at The Box. When we were in desperate need of storage space, The Box showed no hesitation to offer our non-profit organization the extra space they had empty free of charge, and what was so wonderful was that it was offered wholeheartedly without Aid in Motion needing to ask or play the "we are a charity card".
(-Lola Lopez, Founder & CEO of Aid in Motion)

Every storage company in UAE thinks it is essential to concentrate on customer service. What most of them do is; place an advertisement in the newspapers/internet stating that they require a customer service agent (full time). From among all those who apply for the job, they hire the ones who know how to sell, how to compel the client into using all their services and how to deny the client of certain requests. They also hire those individuals who know how to speak the most used languages or who have ‘good communication skills’.
Good customer service hardly involves any of the above. It involves treating your client as a human being and not a bank account….

The ability to speak a language well is wrongly termed as ‘good communication skill’ by many Dubai storage companies. Individuals who interact with customers need to understand and empathize with his/her storage problem by listening to what they have to say. They must have the ability to explain services clearly, as well as advise the customer towards choosing the right storage option for better storage results. Therefore, The Box recruits customer service executives and other representatives with utmost care. Their excellent customer service is reflected not only by those who frequently interact with the customer but also by those who work behind the scenes.

DSF 2010 can be Picturesque too!

storage companies
For those who like peace and serenity better than the hustle and bustle of city life, boating might appeal to you even more than the DSF. But one advantage of sailing on the waters of the creek in February is that of watching the warm DSF lights and firecrackers from afar.
Even though a boat of your own can really satisfy the senses, almost everyone admits that taking care of a boat is not an easy job. When you’re on a vacation it is easier to take care of your vehicles, but when you have to get back to work, vehicle storage in Dubai is a painful task. ‘How should it be maintained?’ And the biggest question of all is ‘Where should you keep it?’

A beautiful boat like yours deserves a decent amount of attention. It doesn’t even matter if you don’t have the time or skill on your hands to do it. Many don’t… So why not take your boat to the professionals at a storage company in Dubai…

The Box understands that boats come of various sizes and each boat requires a unique style of storage. We also understand that our customers prefer a storage facility in Dubai that is very close their home or office. At the end of it all, we know that you would definitely love to store your precious boat in a storage unit that suits your budget. The Box takes care of all this.

Reusing Boxes Doesn’t Always Work

household removalsWith all your DSF shopping being done, it is now time to unwrap all your goodies. It is quite tempting for most of us to save all the wrapping material like boxes and bags that were used to only present the products that you purchased. Thus most of us get carried away into using these throw away packaging boxes intended only for single use, for our house removal or household storage purposes in Dubai.

It would be a shame if we carefully and skillfully packed all our belongings in weak boxes like these, as they would ultimately give way when being lifted or transported. Thus investing in some good packaging material for house removal purposes in UAE is important.

Many storage facilities in Dubai will have a special section on their website that caters to the packaging material that they sell. For example: The Box our storage company has a section on our website ( called The Box Shop. There you will be able to find all kinds of packaging material required, if you ever had to move to another place. What’s more is that the boxes sold at storage companies in Dubai will cater towards specific purposes.

At times, storage facilities also rent out certain material like plastic covers, racks, etc. Some other companies also offer discounts if you buy their products in bulk.
