When you move to a new home or apartment, there are certain fragile items you want to protect from damage during packing, transportation, and unpacking.

Watch this video for some helpful tips on moving important and personally valuable photographs.

How To Choose The Right Size Storage Unit

Sometimes, homeowners and renters simply run out of storage space. A storage unit rental from a secure storage facility can be a great solution to clear up clutter. Storage facilities offer units in all sizes, up to thousands of cubic feet. So how do you choose the right size storage unit? Here are some tips for picking the unit you need.

  • Consider What You Are Storing

If you will be storing furniture, then you will logically want to opt for a larger unit to accommodate larger belongings. If you just have a few boxes of seasonal clothing, then a smaller unit will suit your needs. If your items are already packed, then measure their boxes to determine the exact unit size you need.

  •  Think About Function

Consider the function of your storage unit when calculating the space you’ll need. If you are going to use the storage for a long period of time, then you may want a larger storage unit so you can move, access, and remove items without hassle. Perhaps you only have a few items to store now, but anticipate the need for more storage space in the near feature. Instead of renting multiple small units, consider one large space for accumulated items over time.

  • Try To Be Economical

It can be easy to spend money on something “just in case” you need it. However, if you are simply storing clothing or other small items for a short term, then it isn’t cost effective to rent a large unit, wasting space and money.

For quality storage units for any purpose, Chelsea Mini Storage has the best prices and options. We also provide a handy online Storage Calculator so you can determine just the right size storage unit. Contact us by calling (888) 549-4090.

Top Reasons You Might Need Storage in Manhattan

Living in a big city like Manhattan often means that space and storage are hard to come by. Whether you are living in the heart of the city in a small apartment or you share space with roommates, there are many reasons why you have less space for your things.

Few people consider the convenient advantages of a storage facility to solve their space issues. With a storage center, you can safely keep and access your belongings without a cramped living space. Here are some of the top reasons you might need storage while living in Manhattan.

  • Changes to Your Living Space

If you are moving into a smaller apartment or getting a new roommate, then odds are you are going to lose a good amount of the storage. Or, you may be moving between apartments and find yourself temporarily crashing on a friend’s couch. There’s no reason to toss your keepsakes when you can rent a handy storage space. Your possessions are kept safe and secure without having to maneuver around a crowded home. 

  • Temporary Absence

If you plan to be out of town temporarily, whether for college or on an extended vacation, then you can’t necessarily take all of your belongings with you.  Put your remaining items in storage until you return. Why pay rent for an unused apartment to store your items when you can use an affordable storage facility?

  • Extensive Home Repairs

In the event of structural damage or major renovations, your living space can quickly become a construction site. To protect your valuable belongings from dust, water, or debris, a temporary move to the storage facility may be your best bet.

If you need space to store your belongings but don’t have enough room at home, then contact Chelsea Mini Storage for safe and secure storage. Call us at (888) 549-4090 or visit our website to find out more about our storage facility.

You Have a New Place, Now What? 4 Tips for Moving

Take a deep breath—moving is not going to be that bad.  The most important thing to worry about is making sure all of your stuff makes it to your new place safe and sound.  Here are some helpful tips to ensure that your move is successful and painless:

1.      Use High Quality Boxes

You want your stuff to be comfortable and secure when it is moved, so make sure you only use good, durable boxes.  It’s probably going to be cheaper to buy good boxes than it is to replace a box full of broken items—and you’ll spare yourself a lot of worrying.

 2.      Protect Your Furniture

If you want to continue to use your furniture at your new place, then be sure to pack your furniture carefully when you are moving.  Sometimes, this requires professional moving services that can pad and protect your upholstery from damage.

 3.      Pack Your Fragile Items Carefully

Before moving wine bottles, antiques, or fine art, save yourself from a huge headache and look into using moving services for these items.  The professionals will be able to custom-wrap your stuff carefully and package it into secure, high-quality boxes.

 4.      Moving Locally?  Rent A Storage Unit For Your Extras

Don’t bother moving things to your new place that you don’t use regularly.  Take all of the things you can’t bear to part with and transport them to a storage facility—that way, you can move those items to your new place if you decide that there is some extra room.
