Access Denied!

Generally, every storage company has restrictions on what is allowed to be stored in their facility. But these restrictions differ from company to company. Restrictions are made for a logical reason and exist even in the storage facilities in Abu Dhabi. They are made to protect the facility as well as all the goods being stored in it. Some of the items that are not allowed to be stored in storage facilities are-

1. .Hazardous and combustible items

Any thing that is capable of exploding or causing an explosion is usually not allowed to be stored in a storage facility. This includes fireworks, fuels, aerosols, gun powder, etc. Except for the fuel in a vehicle, stored in the facility, no other hazardous material is admitted.

2. .Animals and plants

Plants attract insects and pests. Even animals might do the same. Besides, a storage facility is no place for any living thing, as the structure of the building normally doesn’t include windows.

3. .Perishable food items

Only certain storage houses store food items on a short term basis. You need to check with the facility in Abu Dhabi before you make a booking.

4. .Valuables

Jewellery, for example is best kept or is meant to be kept inside a locker in a bank. Each storage company has a different definition of what is considered as valuable.

Just because one company doesn’t allow the storage of a particular item, it doesn’t mean another company also won’t. For better decision making, go through the published list provided by each storage facility in Abu Dhabi . To find out what is permitted and what is not at The Box, just give us a call.

Many people believe that storing items in a climate controlled storage facility does not help or make much of a difference. Well, it is certainly not so. You will surely have to pay a bigger sum of money to keep your goods in one, but a climate controlled storage unit in Abu Dhabi is definitely worth the price.

Unlike what people think, ‘climate controlled’ storage doesn’t only differ from a standard storage unit in terms of temperature regulation. There is a lot more to this term than you think. This kind of facility also maintains the level of dust, humidity and wind along with the temperature in a storage unit. Many items require climate controlled storage. Some of those items are oil paintings, paper documents, clothing, furniture (leather, wooden), musical equipment, instruments, perishable items, etc. Only the experts at your storage facility in Abu Dhabi will be able to tell the necessary precautions that need to be taken in your unit for the item to be preserved. Before shifting your goods to a storage company you also need to check if the entire facility has a backup, in case the power runs out. This is the only way to trust a storage company.
