4 Benefits of Using a Storage Facility

Moving away to college or downsizing to a smaller apartment or home doesn’t have to mean parting with your personal things. Worried about leaving your valuables behind? Whether you’re dealing with too much clutter, or your parents have decided to turn your bedroom into an office once you leave, consider the benefits of using a mini-storage or self-storage facility.

  1. Storing Seasonal Items: Storage facilities are perfect for holiday decorations and seasonal items taking up space in your home. This can include anything from artificial trees and oversized decorations to bulky winter clothing. Owning a storage facility makes it possible to swap out seasonal clothing and keep your closets clutter-free all year long. Free up some space and consider storing your items in a mini storage or self storage facility.
  2. Vehicles: Many storage facilities provide vehicle storage options for cars, campers, and boats. Whether you are downsizing your life, or your wife is making you move your project-car out of the garage, storage facilities are great options for extra or non-working vehicles.
  3. Valuables: Several mini storage and self-storage facilities provide onsite security services, including motion detectors, video surveillance, and several roaming security guards. Storage facilities are perfect for storing CDs, computers, other important documents. Keep your valuables safe and secure with a surveillance monitored storage center.
  4. Convenience: Renting a storage unit is not like renting a home; storage facilities do not require long-term contracts or leasing obligations. This means you can use the self-storage center for a week or a year without worrying about monetary penalties or specific length requirements.

If you’re trying to clean out your closets, or you need a safe, secure location to keep your valuables, professionals with Chelsea Mini Storage provide the self-storage and mini storage facility needs.

A Storage Facility Vs. Your Garage

It can be easy to use your garage as extra storage space for all your extra stuff.  A little bit of Christmas here, the old couch there, and before you know it your whole garage has been taken over! 

If you want to be able to park your car in your garage again, then it might be time to clear some clutter and move some of your extra things to a storage center.  Using self-storage is a great way to limit the clutter in your home.  You can store your less frequently used items like holiday decorations and your children’s old artwork at the storage facility and spend less time moving it around your garage. 

Check out these great reasons to switch to a storage facility:

Security – Leaving your prized possessions in the garage is just not a smart idea.  How would you feel if your precious baby photos were damaged by a leaking roof or the extreme temperature changes of a garage?  Moving your items to a storage facility is a more secure option.  These storage centers often have temperature controlled rooms and 24 hour security. 

No Clutter – Having a cluttered up garage is a pain for any homeowner.  You probably spend hours digging out your lawn mower every summer and an equal amount of time trying to find all the Christmas decorations.  When you limit yourself to a mini storage unit, you are less likely to accumulate more junk and more likely to keep the space organized.

Functionality – Wouldn’t it be amazing to park your car in the garage again?  You wouldn’t have to worry about running over the box of old family albums or squeezing the car around grandma’s antique dresser.

If you are looking for a self storage center in the New York City area, then there is no better place to look than Chelsea Mini Storage.  We offer the best prices in Manhattan and are America’s largest self storage facility with over a million square feet of storage.  Check out our prices and facility benefits at our website.

Security at Your Storage Center

Storing your prized heirlooms at a storage center can be a little bit nerve-wracking if you don’t pick an adequate storage facility.  You probably go to great lengths to keep the items in your home safe from theft or destruction.  A self-storage center should be able to offer you the same level of comfort as your home, as far as possession security goes. 

Security at mini-storage facilities can vary from a basic alarm system to a state-of-the-art biometrics system.  Below are some of the more common security features you should look for before you storage your possessions.

General Alarm System – A good alarm system can be monitored or unmonitored by onsite security.  It might also be hooked into the local police system.  Check to see if the alarm system is a system wide setup or if each storage unit has its own alarm. 

Fire and Smoke Detectors – These devices can help save your prized possessions from a dangerous situation.  Ask if each unit has a device or if they are installed in the hallway.  You should also only choose a self-storage center that bans smoking on the property to prevent any unnecessary false alarms.

Cameras – A CCTV camera can do a lot to deter potential thieves.  See if your storage facility has set up CCTV cameras and ask where they are located.  You will definitely want to see one at the main entrance which should also be a restricted access entrance.  This means every customer is checked before they are allowed to enter to make sure they are a current customer and have business going into the mini-storage units.

At Chelsea Mini Storage, we take security very seriously.  As America’s largest self storage center, we understand the concern customers have with selecting a secure mini-storage.  We have a state-of-the-art computerized alarm system, security guards located around the facility, and an on-site resident manager.  If you have any questions or concerns about security, contact our storage facility today.
