Suppose I ship some personal belongings - say, 3-4 m^3 - by sea to Israel, but I don't yet have an apartment to ship them to.

Are there storage spaces I could rent at a reasonably low price, on a weekly or monthly basis, for a period of time which may be as long as several months - and to which I could have my stuff shipped?

If there are - do you have to have someone there to accept the shipped items, or can they just put them in storage for you?


  • The shipped items will probably be palletized, and will not have odd dimensions.
  • I don't mind the exact location of storage: Near one of the ports is fine, in Gush Dan or in Haifa is fine, any place that's accessible and not weird.

An example provider of such a service:

A company named Avia offers mid/long-term storage services in compartments/storage rooms of different sizes. They currently have branches in Haifa, Netanya, Rishon Le-Tzion, Petach-Tikva, Holon, Tzur Igal and Kibbutz Har'el.

Their price quote service for 5 m^3 of cardboard boxes is in the range of 170-270 NIS per 30 days, depending on which branch you choose. Access to their facilities requires an initial identification, and later on it's based either on a token or a face recognition, and a code you tap in.

Some other companies also offer similar services:

and there are probably others - if you know Hebrew you could search for some in the "Yellow Pages" directory or just on a search engine.

Caveat: I have not had any business with any of these companies and cannot vouch for their service. I just found them online.

  • I represent "israstorage.co.il (Caesaria) - they focus more on pickup+storage+return, but can also do just-storage" – KAS Jan 31 '18 at 8:14
