For most people, just making rent in New York City causes significant financial strain. That’s why most New Yorkers jump at the opportunity to move into a lower-rent apartment.
However, unless you’re moving to a very familiar area, this can come with stresses of its own. A new building and new neighborhood are full of uncertainties about security, both for you and your valuable items.
Instead of wondering whether your door is securely locked and your valuables are safe each time you leave a new apartment, consider placing them in storage until you’re more comfortable with and confident in your new home.
Choose Short or Long Term Storage Options
Whether you simply need a little time to recalibrate in order to feel completely safe again after a move, or you want to eliminate the anxiety you feel over keeping your valuables safe altogether, there’s a storage option that will fit your needs in terms of duration.
Even if you choose a short term storage space to start with, you can always move your items into long term storage if you never feel sufficiently comfortable to bring them home with you.
Vault Storage, Surveillance, and Security Guards
There’s simply no way for you to provide the same level of security as a private storage facility. Whether it’s your mother’s engagement ring, the title to your car, or a signed first edition, seeking out storage in NYC is the best way to ensure your valuables stay secure.
Plus, there’s no need to count storage facilities out as a viable option if you don’t have any large items—there are plenty of small, secure storage spaces for your more compact valuable items. You can even opt for vault storage if you need that level of security to feel comfortable.
You may be thinking that paying for a storage facility will cancel out any rent savings you may be gaining in your move. However, a local company that genuinely cares about customer experience won’t overcharge you for their services.
Besides, think about the anxiety you would endure if one of your items were lost, stolen or damaged. Paying a reasonable storage rate every month is nominal in comparison with losing one of your most valuable possessions, and peace of mind is well worth the cost.
Retrieve Items at Your Convenience
Placing your valuables in storage doesn’t mean relegating them to an out-of-reach existence. You will be able to check on and retrieve your items anytime you’d like.
In fact, a high quality company will even deliver those items to you should you begin to feel comfortable with the security of your new home.
