Tips From Chelsea Mini Storage to make Your Spring Cleaning Manageable

 1.      Practice Preventative Cleaning

Before you begin spring cleaning, learn how clean efficiently during the other three seasons of the year, and start doing it every day!  Some important things to remember: Don’t leave a room without tidying up first, clean the dishes while you cook, and sweep the kitchen floor each night.

 2.      Make A Cleaning Kit

Don’t waste time traveling back and forth to the laundry room or closet to collect all of your cleaning supplies—put all of the basics in a bucket and carry that around with you instead.  Make sure that your kit has several sizes of towels, some rubber gloves, and a toothbrush.

 3.      Clear Out The Clutter

Rid yourself of all of that clutter sitting in the garage or the bedroom closet by putting it in storage.  If you can’t bear to throw something away, then just put it in a local storage facility!  A storage center will be able to take your stuff so you can keep your peace of mind.

 4.      Purchase Closet Organizers

Instead of stuffing everything inside of your closets or in boxes that go inside of your closets, start organizing your closet.  Get hooks and clips to hang all of the important stuff and some shelves to replace those boxes.

During the spring cleaning process, you will undoubtedly stumble upon things that you really want to keep, but don’t seem to have any space for.  When that happens, come and take your stuff to Chelsea Mini Storage for low prices and safe storage in Manhattan.  We can also help you with local or long distance moving—call us at (888) 549-4090 and we will be gladly answer all of your questions!

What You Can Do With Self Storage

In Manhattan, you don’t usually have a lot of space, which is why self storage is your best option.  You might also need self or mini storage when you are moving out on your own into a smaller space, you need a place to store your gardening tools, seasonal things, boxes of childhood toys, collections, or you just simply need more room for your existing overflowing rooms. Self storage is both easy and secure way to keep your things safe and tidy.

Moving?

Often, people use self storage as a solution to their space problem, especially while moving.  Because of the short-term leases, self storage can be temporary and last as long as you need it.  In a move, so many things are in a mess, that it makes sense to have a place to store whatever is in the way.  Also, if you are in the process of moving and have things to sell, storing those for-sale items waiting for a new home will make your job easier.  If you are looking to redecorate, moving out bulky objects can make the process go more smoothly while protecting your furniture.

It’s That Time of Year Again…

Self storage can also be a key part of your long term plans.  Seasonal equipment gathers dust in your garage for three-quarters of the year, but if you rent a storage space you can find a location for all of those things that spend most of their time getting in the way.  Everything from winter clothing, which can be bulky and easily eat up space, to sports gear—summer surfboards and winter snowboards—can find a great place to rest in a storage unit.  Self storage can also be a great tool for storing large equipment, like boats or motorcycles, which might not be so easily stored under a roof or in the city.

If you are looking for a place to store your things in the New York City area, Chelsea Mini Storage has room for you.  You can visit us online to learn more about our prices, space availability, security, and specials.

How Storage Unit Insurance Works

The reason you have a storage unit is because you want to keep your property safe and secure.  This is also the reason why you want to get insurance on your storage unit, so that even under extremely unfortunate circumstances, you'll be protected.

Let's take a closer look at how insurance for your storage unit works.

What it covers

Your insurance will typically cover damage caused by the weather, such as hurricanes, flooding, earthquakes, tornadoes, wind, and rain. Theft, vandalism, and explosions are also covered.  Of course, you will want to read your policy carefully and speak with your insurance agent about what is covered in your particular situation. 

Where to get it

One of the first things you should check on is whether your homeowner’s insurance or renter's insurance will cover your storage unit.  This way you'll spare any additional expense. Sometimes you'll be able to get low cost mini-storage insurance directly through your storage center.  This makes the whole process very simple and straight-forward, because it greatly reduces the costs and hassles associated with the other options. The third option would be to go directly to a storage insurance provider, but your storage center will probably be able to recommend one that has proven to be trustworthy.

Who to speak with

Anytime you have an insurance claim on your storage unit, you should contact your insurance company directly.  Of course, for some questions you will contact your storage provider.  For example, if you have questions about the storage facility’s security, their self-storage options, or whether or not they offer mini-storage, then you can speak directly with your storage facility.

At Chelsea Mini-Storage, we offer you storage units with state-of-the-art security and also offer low-cost mini-storage insurance.
