Because of high rents, small apartments, and limited availability, many
extra storage space in Manhattan
. Whether you’ll be storing a collection of antique furniture, skis
and sports equipment, or even larger items, you’ll want a secure
self-storage facility that allows you easy access while keeping your belongings
safe. To decide what size unit is right for you, use the guidelines below.
m Just Storing a Few Items
Many people rent storage units just so they have a place to put a few
items that won’t quite fit in their apartments. You might consider
doing this if, for example, you are downsizing from a one-bedroom to a
studio and don’t want to get rid of anything. One of the smaller
mini storage unit sizes between 72 and 128 cubic feet will probably meet your needs.
m Putting Some Furniture in Storage
If you are planning on storing several items of furniture, you will need
to look at the medium sized storage units, in sizes ranging from 200 to
about 320 cubic feet. Take a look at the actual self-storage unit before
you rent and remember, you don’t want to stack too many pieces of
furniture on top of one another. If you’re in doubt, rent a unit
with more floor space so you can comfortably get your furniture in.
m Going to Store Everything in My Home
When you go to another city or another country for an extended period
of time, but plan on returning to New York, you may want to store the
entire contents of your home. For size reference, a one-bedroom apartment
can fit into a storage unit of about 500 cubic feet. For a two-bedroom
home, you’ll need to at least double that and rent a unit of 1,000
At Chelsea Mini Storage, we rent units ranging from 72 cubic feet all the
way up to nearly 8,000 cubic feet. Whether you are simply storing a few
boxes or an entire home and a car, our storage facility has the space
you need. To inquire about available units and prices,
