It was almost too easy

It was almost too easy, so I felt like I was missing something. A call to confirm details and give location specific info would have made this perfect. Still a very easy process.

Finding Storage Units in NYC

In fact, New York City is home to some of the largest self-storage facilities in the country, complete with indoor car storage and other top shelf amenities, like climate controlled units. In Manhattan or the Bronx, storage facilities are typically found in multistory buildings, as opposed to drive-up access facilities you might find out in Long Island. Being a big city, you can also find full service storage options if you need it. Many storage facilities in New York City also offer use of a free moving van or truck since many customers are carless in the city.

Picking the Right Size Storage Unit in NYC

Storage unit sizes range from small lockers and 5x5s up to large 10x20 or 10x30 units. A storage locker might be perfect if you're just needing to temporarily store luggage for a day, but the most common unit size is a 10x10 because it fits the contents of a 2-bedroom apartment. If you just need extra space for storing seasonal items, like a window A/C unit or holiday decor, a 5x5 unit is about the size of a walk-in closet.

Climate Controlled Storage in New York City

You might also consider getting a climate controlled storage unit. This is a bit more costly than a storage unit without climate control, but will keep delicate items like vinyl records or leather furniture from sustaining damage from high heat or humidity.
