When moving abroad for a number of years, you are not always able to send all your personal belongings; either due to a lack of space, no need for that item in the new country or a delay when sending it. Short term storage may be also required at your country of destination while you are looking for a new home.
AGS provides storage for household goods in secure warehouse facilities. Our warehouses are protected by modern surveillance cameras or a 24-hour guarding service in more remote destinations, where modern tools are unavailable.
Our quality criteria for storage are:
Our unique and high standard packing policy will also be applied to storage.
In addition to items being packed into appropriate cartons, furniture is export wrapped protected and crated if needed prior to being loaded for short or long-term storage. This maximises the protection of stored furniture and simplifies matters when a stored consignment needs to be shipped at short notice or if there is a change of plan.
We use the same high quality packing material that is used for a normal move. The AGS Group has created new packing material more adapted to today’s personal effects. For instance, we use small cartons for CDs and DVDs to further protect those items and to better fit within our standard cartons. A packing list is completed and each box identified and marked before it is loaded into a storage container.
All storage containers are clearly identified and listed on a Master Storage File which makes identifying and retrieving the total consignment or one particular item extremely simple. This system minimises handling which in turn minimises the risk of damage or loss as we only need to retrieve and unpack one storage container to locate one item.
