In Bali, there are numerous companies offering storage services in special rooms or storage facilities. These spaces can be used for both long-term and short-term storage needs, such as during a move or temporary change of residence. The services can indeed be helpful in various situations, for instance, if you're coming to Bali for the winter only or frequently travel between multiple countries. Renting a villa just to store your surfboard, bike, and large monitor might not be the most financially sound idea, and your belongings won't truly appreciate it.
Local services offer both relatively large storage spaces and compact storage units. The rental duration can also vary. Naturally, the shorter the period, the more expensive the daily storage cost. If you plan to use the services of one of these storage companies, read the following recommendations.
Tips for packing
1. Make sure all items are clean and dry before packing to prevent mold.
2. Disassemble items or furniture that can be taken apart to facilitate their movement and optimize storage space. Remember to pack all bolts and screws from furniture in separate bags.
3. Wrap small items and place them inside furniture or other large appliances.
4. Wrap furniture with fabric or plastic to protect it from dust. Wrap fragile items in bubble wrap and secure with tape to prevent damage.
5. Ensure everything is thoroughly dried before placing it in storage to prevent mold.
6. If you plan to store clothing, linens, other fabrics, sofas, mattresses:
a) They should be completely dry.
b) We recommend wrapping and sealing them.
c) It's advisable to use mothballs to protect fabrics.
7. All wooden furniture should be treated against termites before storage, for example, with products like Latrek 400EC or Agenda 25EC.
8. When storing motorcycles, lawnmowers, and garden equipment, drain any liquids to avoid corrosion damage.
9. Use protective covers when storing stoves, washing machines, or refrigerators.
10. When storing business documents and inventory, label all boxes and create pathways between them so that labels are easily visible and accessible.
11. Seal cardboard boxes with tape before placing them in storage. Place heavier items below and fragile items on top.
12. Ensure that boxes are securely placed and won't fall (yes, earthquakes do occur in Bali).
13. Place items you may need closer to the entrance. Create pathways for easy access to your belongings.
