Reasons Why You Should Consider Using Self-Storage During Your Move

Last updated 5 years ago

If you are like many people moving to New York, you may be considering investing in a self-storage unit in a larger storage facility. Whether you are moving into a smaller apartment and need extra room, want to protect valuable furnishings and personal items, or need a space to store your work supplies for the long term, here is why you should ask your moving company about your options for self-storage.

Organize Personal Belongings
Did you know that long-term New York residents and new city dwellers alike frequently invest in self-storage in order to avoid household clutter? With changing personal circumstances and new career opportunities, many residents of Manhattan, Queens, and Brooklyn find themselves with too many possessions and too little space. Whether you need to free up valuable closet space between seasons or want to store your furniture as you look for a new apartment in the city, self-storage is a cost-effective solution to organize your personal effects.

Protect Expensive Investments
When you move, you deserve to have a storage facility that keeps your expensive furniture, fragile glassware, and meaningful family heirlooms safe. Many self-storage units are temperature-controlled environments, and moving companies today even allow customers to view and reserve available units online so you can select the best space for your needs. Self-storage units are also a good bet for large amounts of non-critical documents and paperwork that you may need down the road.

Store Work Supplies
If you are an artist or storeowner in New York, you may elect to buy your wares in bulk to save money. But storing thousands of canvases, easels, paints, and other supplies in a tiny store or apartment space can be extremely difficult. If your occupation demands extra room, speak to your experienced moving team about long-term self-storage.
