If you’re an amateur or professional musician, you’ve probably heard the horror stories; gear being stolen, or instruments being damaged, or even destroyed due to the way they’ve been stored. Instruments and other gear can cost more than most cars do, which is why storing them safely can be so crucial. Whether it’s having to purchase additional airline seats to travel with larger instruments, or having family members “baby-sit” instruments while you’re away on vacation, the fact of the matter remains the same – your instruments are important, and storing them is definitely something you have to deal with on a regular basis.
The conventional aspects of storing your stuff in an exclusive backstage area, or even in a locked van have been proven to be ineffective, not to mention belongings being stolen that are virtually irreplaceable. Even when it’s guarded by a band mate or staff member of the venue, these tragedies happen all the time.
Even when an instrument is being “safely” stored, your gear may still be in danger. Because instruments are made primarily of metal, wood, and sometimes plastics; these materials can strongly be affected by the temperature and humidity of their surroundings. This can lead to thousands of dollars’ worth of repairs, or in extreme cases, may require a complete replacement, if possible.
Luckily, there are solutions to these issues. The storage spaces at STORBOX have reliable security, and will keep your expensive gear safe. Not to mention, their spaces are climate controlled so you don’t have to worry about your materials becoming warped or misshapen due to temperature or humidity.
