A storage unit can be a huge ally when you’re moving. Especially in a new country like Kuwait. For that reason, it’s a good idea to know what’s ok and what’s not. During summer, in Kuwait, it can really get hot. We at Easy Move Kuwait know the best how unbearable at times it can get. Because of that, we’ve created a list of things not to store in Kuwait during summer as they can get damaged, spoiled, or ruined altogether.
Photographs are something not to store in Kuwait during summer
Do you have a photo album? Your family photos are in it? It’s better to not put them inside a storage unit this summer in Kuwait. That’s because the intense heat and overall change in temperature can ruin them completely. That’s why our movers in Kuwait always tell people not to put their photographs in storage units. We know that they don’t have a monetary value, but their sentimental value is huge. So why risk it and damage them?
Be it that you want to put your mobile phone or laptop computer in a storage unit, it might not be a good idea. Even though everything is safe, the heat might pose big problems for you. It’s normal that even the best warehousing options in Kuwait have their problems in the scorching heat. And unfortunately, certain electronics might have a bad reaction to it. So in order to keep your electronics safe take care of them, but don’t put them in a storage unit during summer in Kuwait.
Any type of food
Storage units are no place for food. Especially in the summertime in Kuwait. It’s not only a way to attract animals and rodents, but also a sure way to spoil your fruits and vegetables. It’s true that many companies are doing cargo shipping to Saudi Arabia containing food, however, they have different rules and regulations they need to abide by. For that reason, forget about combining storage with food as it’s a recipe for disaster.
Leather items are among things not to store in Kuwait during summer
When it comes to furniture or similar leather items you need to take care of them in the best possible way. If you take into consideration that such an item can easily crack or get damaged at a slight change of temperature, it’s best not to store it in Kuwait during summer. However, if you follow the Kuwaiti rules and regulations you can technically still store it. But it’s in your best interest to keep it away from storage at least in the summer months.
After all, even the best climate-controlled storage units can’t keep everything safe from outside effects. That’s why it’s always a good idea to have the things that you do not store in Kuwait during summer always on a list. By doing so you’ll avoid a lot of mistakes and problems. Especially if you damage a photo of a loved one or something similar. Always pay attention as you can unintentionally ruin something even if you had the best intentions.
