How Storage Differs In Each NYC Borough

While the five boroughs of New York City hold some definite similarities, they are all incredibly different. From population and cuisine to culture and housing, each borough has its own personality. Anyone moving between boroughs can attest to how different they actually are in so many ways.

When moving in NYC, there is always the issue of storage. There seems to be a never-ending shortage of it, and tenants and homeowners alike are always clamoring for extra that doesn’t exist. Depending on which borough you choose to move to, you’ll find your storage options will vary quite a bit.


Storage In Manhattan

Manhattan might be the hardest borough to store your extra belongings. The storage that is available is incredibly expensive, whether you choose outside storage or an option in your building.

Whichever you choose, be sure that you purchase insurance to cover your belongings in the event of a flood, fire, theft or negligence on behalf of the staff or landlord. It’s never a bad idea to protect your belongings. They mean something to you, or else you’d be selling them, not storing them.


Storage In Brooklyn

While Brooklyn seems like it is a bit more “suburban” than the city, you’ll find that you still might be lacking for storage space, depending on where you decide to live. The storage in a classic brownstone will be larger than that of an area apartment.

You’ll find similar storage options in Brooklyn, with outside storage facilities existing as the most popular way to store an overabundance of personal belongings. Brooklyn isn’t much cheaper, and you’ll still pay a pretty penny for your extras.


Storage In The Bronx

In The Bronx, you’ll find that moving and storage go hand-in-hand. There isn’t a ton of room within a typical Bronx apartment to hold the stuff you don’t need every day. You will come across quite a bit of tenant storage, and it won’t cost what you’re paying in Manhattan. The same goes for self-storage.

The Bronx has quite a few options when it comes to self-storage units, but make sure you choose a reputable one with ample security.


Storage In Queens

After living in the occasionally cramped confines of Manhattan, many people seek out Queens as a city away from the city. Queens is a sprawling refuge, filled with single family homes (and apartments), and plenty of in home storage.

For larger items, seek to rent a storage unit. You’ll find them to be incredibly safe and well-managed.


Storage In Staten Island

If you’ve spent quite a bit of time living in the other boroughs, Staten Island will feel like the suburbs to you. It kind of is, after all. Single family homes dot the streets, and you’ll find yourself in a very car friendly area.

It goes without saying, that storage is utilized more frequently in the other boroughs, simply because of space.

    Great group of MOVERS.

    The movers arrived 15 minutes ahead of schedule, when it was cold and rainy. I wasn’t able to pack everything since my mother had passed away a few days before my move. They made me feel safe and helped pack things gently and quickly. They were patient and very positive and compassionate. They were too notch. Highly recommend their services.
