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.

For all of your storage needs and moving services, come to Chelsea Mini Storage.  We offer America’s largest self-storage facility and professional moving services for local and long distance moving.  Call us at (888) 549-4090 to ask us all of your questions or for help solving all of your moving problems!

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.


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.
