How we Operate

Global Storage is a division of Global International Relocation specialised in the safe keeping and storage of your household items, for short term or long term periods.

In a globalising world, marked by an exponential increase of the workforce mobility, is not always possible to take all household items when an expat is allocated to project for a limited period of time in a foreign country. Simultaneously, when someone decides to move to a new home, sometimes the installing process is not immediate and the household items need to be kept for a short period in safe conditions.

To meet these needs we have build facilities which in Portugal are unique of its kind: an isothermal construction, with ideal temperature and humidity levels for the safe storage of your goods ; Special sealed and personalized containers are used for big (cars, kayacs,…) and small objects; We have built a high-security vault to store works of art or valuable wines; We have a security system with CCTV with HD cameras 24h / 7d and access controlled by biometrics. Our high security safe was specially designed to store your most valuable assets, whether wine or works of art.

We will meet your expectations because every detail matters. This commitment ensures us a high degree of loyalty with our customers around the world with a dissatisfaction rate of only 0.3%.

Specialised Packaging

Accidents happen and no one can guarantee that a transport van will not have an accident; a boat is not the victim of a storm; that tropical heat does not cause damage during transport or an article falls on the floor and is damaged.

So that all your goods reach their final destination in perfect condition Global Storage uses the best packaging materials and the most appropriate for each type of item, coupled with specialists in the art of packaging and international moves.

Our Packaging materials:

  • Reinforced cardboard boxes of different sizes and suitable for different types of items such as crockery, books, clothes, chairs, lampshades and pictures.
  • Wardrobes of reinforced cardboard for suits and dresses.
  • Silk paper for fragile porcelain and other very delicate items.
  • Corrugated cardboard to protect the surface of furniture.
  • Bubble wrap.
  • Cardboard corners for enhanced protection of the corners of furniture.
  • Special PVC tape to withstand different types of weather.
  • Identifying stickers for each package.
  • Crates/wooden boxes, made to measure in our carpentry workshop, for the protection of special or high value items such as works of art, antiques, pictures, mirrors, sculptures and marbles.

We don’t “wrap” your items in newspaper, blankets or sheets. It is as important to use the best packaging materials as it is to employ the most suitable packaging techniques. The art of packaging, in which our professionals are unsurpassed, determines the success your move.
