The Best Way To Store Your Things In Manhattan

It doesn’t matter if you’ve lived in Manhattan your entire life, or if you’re moving there from a sprawling suburb. You should know the best ways to go about storing items that you can’t fit in your apartment, or in the storage provided by your landlord, if any.

You’re going to get to a point in your Manhattan lifestyle, where you’re sick of feeling cluttered, but you want easy access to your things. This can be a challenge in the city that never sleeps, so here are some ways that you’ll be able to make the best of moving and storage in Manhattan, NYC.


Use The Storage Space In Your Building

If your building offers a space for storage, investigate the price and whether or not there is a waiting list. Often times, there isn’t a ton of access to storage within the building, obviously, because it’s the most desirable place. Everyone wants all of their stuff in one place, it’s convenient.

The price of convenience is pretty high, however, with tenants purchasing storage space outright for thousands of dollars. If you can’t get into the storage units in your building, don’t fret, there are other options for moving and storage in NYC.


Off-Site Storage

Storing your belongings in a place other than your building isn’t as inconvenient as you might think. If you’re putting these things into storage, it’s likely that you don’t require a sense of urgency when it comes to being able to access them.

Off-site storage is a great option for valuables as well. Tenant building storage can come with less security surrounding it, making it more vulnerable to theft and building maintenance issues such as leaks and small fires.

Of course, there are no guarantees when it comes to moving in NYC and the storage options that come along with it. Accidents can happen anywhere that result in the loss of personal items in storage.

Before you store in a off-site location, take the time to look into it. It’s likely you’ll be paying a large chunk of money every month to use it, so you might as well dig a little to know it it’s worth it!


Don’t Store It At All

If storage is becoming a hassle for you, you do have the option of not storing anything. Many people with items in storage break down and end up selling things, just because storage in the city can be so difficult.

If you’re moving to the city for the first time, finding a way to store your things can really be a shock. Weigh your options, and take the time to figure out what will work best for you.

When you’re ready to move, and you’ve found the perfect storage (or not), give Simply Moving a call to take care of all of your NYC moving needs!

    We couldn’t be happier with our recent move with Simply Moving.

    Their prices were affordable, in fact, a lot cheaper than the quotes we got from the other movers we had called in the NYC area.

    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.
