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.

 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!
