Storage Units Near Me? Let's Get Started!


Last update: 09.06.2019

Renting a storage unit near you is the easiest way to declutter your home without having to throw out any of your prized or important possessions. With options ranging from traditional units, pod storage and full service storage it can be hard to find the right place and service that fits your requirements.

It’s advisable to do your research before committing to a certain provider or service otherwise you’ll end up paying for unused extras. This article aims to clarify what options are available in your neighbourhood, what to watch for in prices, what to expect and finally 10 tips you'll want to know before moving into storage..

Where To Start?

And we mean this literally. Storage is traditionally a very locally required service and your location is the first place to start. Within New York City there are many options readily available and you can find something reasonably close to you. Manhattan Mini Storage alone already boasts an impressive 17 locations on the island and not to forget Cubesmart with many options on Manhattan and all of Long Island. However, these are probably the more pricier options with all kinds of added benefits you end up paying for and not using. 
 
Of course you would like to find a storage unit as close to you as possible but in New York City nothing is ever really close to you. Nowadays there are many other services that get around this requirement as well.

When using a full service storage service you get the benefits of a regular storage unit near you at a much lower price. This is possible because a full service storage company has much larger facilities where your items are stored more efficiently. Next to that, a full service company takes a way all the hard work of transporting your items.

You can find storage companies all across the greater New York City area and you can request our storage services in the following areas:

Pricing

When selecting storage near you it’s important that you get the best bang for your buck! There’s a few things to keep in mind when it comes down to pricing. Let’s start by segmenting the difference in price between traditional storage companies and full-service storage companies. 
 
Because a full service provider takes care of the pickup and the storage of your items you would guess it’s more expensive right?

That’s not the case and in almost all sizes, full service providers undercut the prices of traditional storage companies. The reason for this is because the layout of the warehouse is organized in a manner to eliminate the waste of space. Your items are stored more efficiently which results in a lower cost per square foot for the provider. These lower costs translate to a lower price for you as a customer and often includes a free pickup of your items as well.
 
When you book a traditional storage unit, you can break down your costs as follows:

  • Monthly storage price quoted - This is usually the quoted price of the basic version of the selected size. Most likely the top floor and the unit completely at the back. This is where you are often misled and when you arrive at the location you'll probably opt for a unit on the ground floor at a higher price.
  • Deposit - It’s common to pay one or even two months deposit when booking a storage unit.
  • Administration fee - A typical hidden cost that is often overlooked and not shown in a price quotation. These costs are meant to cover the administration for setting up a contact. In our opinion this is outdated as you can take care of anything online nowadays. Why spend money on paper contracts?
  • Insurance - It's smart to book insurance with your storage unit in case something happens. Water damages, theft or fire risk is usually not covered by the provider and requires an additional insurance.
  • Extra options - Want a more accessible unit on the ground floor? Be prepared to pay an extra. Another common one is the cost for a lock, these are usually specific to the storage location so when you move to another provider you have to buy a new lock as well.

When you book a space at a full service storage provider the elements of pricing are slightly different. The below elements make up the price at a full service provider:

  • Monthly storage price quoted - Similar to a traditional storage unit, there is of course a monthly price. However, the quoted price here is definite as it doesn't depend on any extra unit options. Everyone receives the same service regardless of size and the price quoted in this case is the price you'll pay. No surprise.
  • No Deposit - There's no need for deposits here.
  • No Hidden Costs - No administration fees. Everything is taking care of online or over the phone reducing costs for the provider and removes the annoyance of administration fees.
  • Free Pickup - This might be the biggest advantage of booking with a full service provider. There's no need to find a storage unit near you anymore these days because you can get the same storage  that comes with a free pickup. Note: Make sure this is included with your provide. When booking with Boxie24, this service comes for free with all prices quoted on the website but this is not the case for all providers.
  • Insurance - Remains important. Even though full service providers have more standardized facilities that come with state of the art protection it's still possible for something to happen. Always check out what basic insurance is included and if you would like an additional insurance on top. See our pricing page for more information on the insurance options at Boxie24.
