Types Of Car Storage

Many storage companies in UAE have car storage as an added service to compliment the rest of the amenities that they offer. But each storage facility in Dubai offers a different kind of storage. Basically there are three types of car storage: outside car storage, covered car storage and inside car storage.

Outside car storage: You might ask- “Why outside car storage?” Well, parking spaces in Dubai are like gold. Therefore the amount of people benefiting from such a storage solution in Dubai is phenomenal. Outside car storage can’t do much for your car. But to some, low parking rates are all they want for their cars. Thus they love outside storage.

Covered car storage: This facility will only shield your car from the sunlight that normally damages a car brutally. The roofs help do that. Since the height of different cars is different the roofs at such facilities are adjustable or have a range of heights to choose from. This kind of storage is relatively inexpensive, but doesn’t provide any other protection. Hence it could be perfect for those looking to just store their car someplace away from the sunlight, with no other motives.

Inside car storage: Indoor car storage units like at The Box, generally have shutters so that your car can be parked easily inside the storage facilities in Dubai. This kind of storage makes a lot of sense as your car can be protected completely from sunlight. The security of things inside the facility is obviously better than outside it. Tests or checks are also conducted on your car from time to time. The colour will not fade, the engine will work efficiently and neither will your car become a victim of crime.

Journey of the Self-Storage Industry

Self-storage has evolved from primitive warehousing to today’s modern climate controlled units with limited access. The journey before self-storage being known as warehouses was mighty long and complicated to pen down; but the industry’s journey after 1960’s is an interesting one.

Storing things in warehouses was known as public storage. The owners of the warehouse offered no security of your belongings whatsoever. Later, mini warehouses with on-site or off-site offices gladly embraced self storage as a business with potential. Thus they made sure to provide at least minimum security by fencing the area around the building.

Then came the need to provide customers with air-conditioned storage solutions in UAE which were allowed to be used at higher rent rates. They also built multi-storey buildings and provided better security at the gate as well as some security in the storage facility itself. Outdoor storage was still available at that time. Later outdoor bays were cancelled and all kinds of storage were provided in spaces within well designed self-service storage buildings.

The latest storage facilities in UAE like The Box are designed keeping green motives in mind. Today, the concept of real-estate and self-storage work side-by-side as they similarly focus on customer needs and are business oriented. Storage facilities in Dubai also provide customized storage units. Therefore you can even have the exact temperature you are looking to store your goods inside your unit. The facilities and teams at such facilities today assist the customer professionally.

Benefits of Using Household Storage

Personal storage is also referred as household storage in UAE. Like any other service in a Dubai storage company you will be able to access your storage unit 24 hours a day. You can also decide upon how you want your household belongings to be stored inside the unit. Above all you will be the only one to have access your unit.

What are the benefits of using a storage unit for household items?

When we generally remove one piece of furniture from the living room, we experience a sense of satisfaction in our minds, even though it is the room that has acquired more space. Therefore imagine how you would feel when your entire house is clutter-free. Household storage in Dubai can do a really neat job by freeing up the space at home.

This kind of storage also helps when you have to move from a larger home to a smaller one. You can book your storage unit for as long as you like.

You can use the same unit for emergency purposes too as it would always be at hand. Store everything that will take up space if you’re expecting guests or to just make your house more presentable during occasions.

Personal Storage Isn’t Luxury…

Self-storage may have emerged as a business only years ago, but ‘storage’ existed as an active concept since 6000 years. In the ancient times people all over the world tried to save all kinds of valuables from natural disasters. They would mostly store all their household items underground. Gradually, storage became an essential part of life. Despite all the confusion, it is now clear that self-storage in the modern world originated from the act of storing household items which came to be known as ‘personal storage’.

Personal storage is the basis of a storage facility in UAE or anywhere else in the world. For those who might still be new to the concept- personal storage simply involves storage of belongings that are of private nature in a rented room.

One of the reasons why personal storage is in demand is because of the reasonable prices of units. Personal storage in not a luxury, it is a necessity. Therefore almost every family or household in Dubai city rents out a unit at a Dubai storage company. It’s nothing unusual to rent out some extra space. Thus people in Dubai are actually accustomed to placing all their excess household items in such a place without a thought or worry.

Personal storage spaces can only be convenient. Therefore renting a personal storage unit in Dubai would seldom be wrong on your part. If you would like to try out a unit located at Al Quoz Industrial Area 4 in Dubai, try out The Box.

Why Perishable Items Aren’t Allowed

In every storage facility in UAE, there are unique lists of items that cannot be stored. Self storage companies have such don’ts for many reasons. But the main reason why items are denied at a storage facility is because of the safety of the rest of the belongings in the neighboring storage units.

Flammable items like oil, fire crackers, alcohol, paints, etc. are surely not allowed in any Dubai storage company. This you might have guessed for obvious reasons. But what could be the reason for disapproving perishable items. Many things can come under the term perishable, but most of them would be food items. Food storage is hardly ever encouraged in storage companies. However the few facilities that allow food storage will only keep your items with them for a couple of days or for a temporary period. When food items are kept with self storage facilities in Dubai they could be the cause for many critters infesting non-perishable organic items like paper documents, wooden items, etc. Perishable items also attract rodents and other insects that could lead to an unclean environment for the goods stored in the neighboring units by other customers.

But above all other reasons, insurance companies deny coving claims of those goods damaged because of perishable food items, just the way they don’t provide cover for property that has been damaged by a natural disaster. The Box in Dubai also has its own list of items that aren’t allowed into their units.

Ever tried air-conditioned storage?

Why would our goods need to be stored in an air-conditioned storage solution in UAE? Air-conditioning is for people, not for things. This is a known fact that is stuck in our minds. But people seldom realize how important air-conditioning could be when it comes to storing certain goods for long periods of time…

Inappropriate climatic conditions can destroy certain goods, while air-conditioning could actually preserve its life. Things that can easily get affected by heat and humidity are the things you should place in a climate controlled facility designed for long term usage, which also provides a cool environment.

Now the things that are likely to be damaged in non air–conditioned self storage facilities are those that are organic in nature. The word ‘organic’ doesn’t necessarily mean food. It also notifies items that are made of natural materials like paper documents, furniture made of wood or leather, clothing like coats, hats or even foot-wear, purses and belts made from animal skins, items made of cloth, paintings on canvases, etc.

By reducing the effect of heat on items such as these, storage solutions in Dubai like The Box actually reduce many factors that could damage or spoil your goods. The examples of goods that need air conditioning mentioned above are very few. So when you have to make a decision to store your belongings at a storage facility in Dubai the next time, do check to find out if any of your goods are organic.

Fabric Storage In Dubai

There are many factors that can affect your belongings during the different times of the year. At certain times the level of humidity could be very high, while at some other times the weather is very cool. When it comes to fabrics like clothing, linen, covers, etc. again the duration of storing your items could also affect the quality of the item to a certain extent. Therefore in this case packing your items and storing them in climate controlled storage facilities in Dubai could be the best.

So far, climate controlled storage is the best way to preserve all your fabrics. Even a little amount of sunlight could result in the fading of fabric colours, therefore care has to be taken when it comes to the place in which you will be storing cloth and items made from it.

The packaging done to store fabrics for a long period of time should also be done carefully. That is because any acidic content interacting with the cloth can also result in its ruin. Boxes of low quality sometimes have acidic ingredients in them. In other words certain acids are used while making boxes of certain materials in the box making process. Therefore you need to buy containers that are acid-free in order to be on the safe side.

Our storage company in UAE The Box knows how to handle each and every item including fabric that you would like to place in storage. Visit for more details.

Technology changes almost everything. This is evident from the improvement in communication that takes place every year. Similarly, technology also influences the ways through which we can listen to music. Most of us prefer mp3 players today even though we have many compact discs and old records at home. But there is certain feel good factor when it comes to hearing old classics through records that aren’t available any more.

Duration of Storage: A Valuable Input to Your Search

The first decision you need to make before planning on opting for a particular storage facility in UAE is about the duration of storage. Deciding upon how long you will require a storage unit is a very valuable input. This will help you choose an appropriate storage solution in UAE that would defiantly level up to your expectations.

You can store things in most of the Dubai storage companies for as long as you want. But for organizational convenience and quality standards storage units differ from each other depending upon long term or short term storage. Therefore if you would use a unit meant for short term storage, your goods wouldn’t be as safe as they could be under the protection of long term storage unit facilities. Thus, you have to decide in this manner- Do my belongings/goods need long term or short term facilities? Because finding your goods all damaged would be the last sight you would want to behold.

Some companies only provide short term storage units and facilities. Therefore, if you are already using a storage facility in Dubai since a while for short term storage, find out whether that company provides long tern storage as well. Otherwise when you really require long term storage and that too on short notice, it wouldn’t be very easy to find one.

If you are still ‘storage hunting’, save yourself from such situations and find a self storage company much like The Box to rely on for both short as well as long term storage.

Make the Most of Good Storage Units

Anyone would want to make maximum use of their self storage unit. There are many ways through which you can do that. Finding an inexpensive storage unit in Dubai is what most people think is a good way to take advantage of this useful facility, but such a technique could backfire someday. Therefore the best thing to do is to rent one at a renowned Dubai storage company and make the most of it.

If you will be visiting your unit rarely, it is better to adjust with a small sized unit. Since you would not be placing and removing things frequently, it wouldn’t be a problem to just fill up or use every little corner of the available space. But then, there are ways to stack your goods in order to make maximum use of your storage solution in Dubai. If you’re doing this, heavy goods should be placed away from the entrance. Pack all your belongings in corrugated boxes. Boxes can be nicely labeled, stacked over each other and take up minimum space. Utilize each box only till its prescribed limit.

If you will be visiting your unit frequently, it is better to opt for a larger unit. A larger storage unit will provide you with more space as well as allow easy transfer and removal of large items.

At The Box you can opt for a different sized unit according to your changing needs. Visit us at
