What's Box Storage?
Living in Delhi as we do, we can all do with more space to store our household goods. We might be living in a flat that only offers a few cupboards to store our linen and woolens. Or, we might be living with a joint family and only have a room to ourselves. Sometimes, we just might like to use the space to put a recliner instead of building yet another cupboard in a room.
Whatever be the reason for your space constraint, there's no better solution than StoreMore's boxes to extend the space for your family. Think of it as renting shelves to store your goods and keeping them away from your home-but in a place equally safe and secure for your belongings.
Types of Boxes
StoreMore provides corrugated boxes in different sizes that can be used to store up to 18 kgs of goods. You can use them to pack clothes, shoes, decorations, books, albums, mementos, sweaters, jackets, shawls, toys, blankets, quilts, utensils, and so on. Once packed, they can be sent away to StoreMore for safe keeping.
These boxes come in three sizes:
Small (1.65 CFT)
For items such as books and albums
Medium (3 CFT)
For items such as heavy winter jackets and duvets
Large (6 CFT)
For bigger items such as blankets and quilts
Box Storage Size Guide
- Small Box: 17 inches (L) * 14 inches (W) * 12 inches (H)
Volume - 1.65 cubic feet
The small boxes only work for items that are less than 1 feet in length or width, but weigh a lot when put together. Imagine the shelf of a typical bookcase about 3 feet in width. It will have about 35-40 normal-sized fiction books. These can fit in one such box. And you can fit an entire bookcase in about five such boxes; or an entire cupboard full of clothes in 10 such boxes.
- Medium Box: 18 inches (L) * 16 inches (W) * 18 inches (H)
Volume: 3.0 cubic feet
The medium boxes work very well for slightly bulky items, such as sweaters, jackets and duvets. Each box can fit about 25-30 thick sweaters; 10-15 jackets and 8-10 duvets. You can fit the contents of an entire linen cupboard in about 5 such boxes.
- Large Box: 24 inches (L) * 18 inches (W) * 24 inches (H)
Volume: 6.0 cubic feet
These boxes are made to international specifications and can be used to store large-volume items, such as quilts and blankets; a bedside lamp with shade, etc. You can fit about 3-5 air-filled single quilts; or about 3 double-bed mink blankets in each box.

Preparing your goods for storage
It's best to line the boxes with plain packing paper before storing your clothes in them. If you let us know in advance, we will be happy to provide some for free at the time of delivery of empty boxes. Many of our customers want to put naphthalene balls, or dry chillies, or neem leaves-as they do when they store their clothes at home. Well, chillies and leaves are a strict no! StoreMore does not accept any edible items in storage. And put naphthalene balls only because to appease your habit.
Our storage facility does not require any of these things to keep your goods safe. Our pest control services make sure that there are no pests, or rodents, to endanger the safety of your goods.
We suggest that you make an inventory for the contents of each box and/or click a picture of a packed box. This will make it easier for you to remember which items belong to each box, and therefore, make it easy to call for them when required.
Putting your goods into storage
You can place an order for these boxes right here. These will be delivered to you within 3-5 working days. You can pack them at your convenience or request the services of our team to pack your stuff for additional charges.
Once you are done packing, log in to your account and choose a date and time for pick-up. Our van will be at your doorstep to pick up the packed boxes at that time and date. Alternately, you can drop them to our storage facility at a pre-arranged time.
Please note that we need an inventory for each packed box at the time of pick-up. We do not accept boxes without a signed inventory for each box
Once the boxes reach our facility, we will provide you with a bar code for every box. You will use that every time you need to retrieve your goods.
Getting your goods back from storage
It's as easy to get your goods back storage as it was to put them into storage in the first place. Just log into your account on the StoreMore website, go through your detailed inventory list, and click on the Redeliver button. And the goods will be at your doorstep when you asked for them.
You can even pick up the box for FREE from our facility on a Saturday. Alternatively, we can drop the item/box to your doorstep for a charge of Rs 100 per box (minimum charges of Rs 500 per trip for NCR).
Remember, we did say that using StoreMore is very easy!
