Guide to packing your belongings when resorting to Abu Dhabi storage rental services

Packing your items will help you in creating an inventory of your items. So you will know what exactly went where. It will also add a layer of protection to your belongings.

The main issue with not packing belongings correctly is that you will end up damaging your items. It is possible for dust and moisture to build up as time progresses, so covering them properly prevents this.


Making a list of your items

Covering the floor of the storage unit

This step is not mandatory. However, it is possible for moisture and dampness to sweep through the floor. This depends on the storage unit. If you feel like this is a possibility, then you can cover the floor with some canvas or plastic sheets. Your heavy or large items can then be kept on top of it.

Using boxes and pallets

Typically, we would advise you to use boxes made of wood  instead of cardboard boxes. This would be if you are planning to rent a storage space in Abu Dhabi for a considerable period of time. As time progresses, it is possible for cardboard boxes to attract dampness and so will affect your items as well. Wooden boxes on the other hand last for a longer period of time and are strong as well.

What is probably great about wooden boxes is that they can be utilised for a different purpose once you are done keeping them in storage. This is due to their long lasting effect.

At the same time, to add another layer of protection, we strongly urge you to use pellets. What is interesting is that pellets will elevate your boxes and so protect them against unnecessary moisture or dust particles. What they do is that they would add some ventilation upwards. Using pellets will also enable you to move the boxes around at ease. We understand how heavy packed boxes can get.

Taking care of fragile items

Avoid plastic covers and bags

Avoid using plastic covering or bags when wrapping your belongings. This is because plastic bags are capable of trapping moisture inside of them easily. Fungus is harmful to your belongings and can cause them to be damaged. This is why you ought to properly wrap them with the help of paper so you keep the moisture from seeping in if at all.

Cleaning electrical equipment and appliances

You will have to clean your electrical items thoroughly before you decide to keep them in storage. Ideally, you could use either bleach or baking soda in order to clean them adequately. These methods are great because they will kill any germs or mould that could build up as they are kept in storage in the longer term.
