How-To Find Storage in New York

Blue sky and clouds over New York City

From Brooklyn to the Bronx, space is hard to come by. This makes finding a storage unit in New York all but essential. But where do you start?

How-To Find Storage in New York

If you live or work in New York, you know that elbow room is more valuable than gold. So if you’re looking for a place to store your stuff, your home or office might not be enough. But how do you decide how much space you need? Is it better to rent a unit close to your home or a train stop? Whether you’re in Queens, Long Island, or any borough in between, there’s a self-storage solution specifically catered to you. Read our tips below to make sure you find just the right one.

1. Know Your Timeframe

Is self-storage a short- or long-term solution for you? Answering this question first can help you make decisions on what and how you’re storing. If it’s going to be awhile before you have to access your unit again, consider renting a larger unit and storing as many non-essential items as you can. NYC apartments can get awfully cramped in a hurry, and you’ll be grateful for the extra room.

2. Consider MTA Access

If you’re going to be in and out of your unit for smaller items, you’re going to want to be close a convenient train stop. For instance, our Ozone Park location is a less than five-minute walk from the Rockaway Blvd. stop, making it perfect to store small business inventory, bikes, or anything else you keep in regular rotation.

3. Inventory Your Items Ahead of Time

Even a rough idea of what you’ll be storing helps with the shopping process greatly. Understanding the dimensions of your larger items and creating a plan of attack for organizing your smaller things makes finding a suitable unit a snap. Plus you’ll be able to give your moving company (or helpful friend with a car) a better heads-up of when and what you’re storing.

The office staff is friendly and interested in helping you. The hours are convenient and the place is reasonably well kept. My only reservation is that they could do a slightly better job with pest control, but some of that responsibility is on fellow storage customers that leave food in their units even though the policy clearly states they can't do that. Overall a great place to keep your things while you figure out a more permanent place for them.
