Temporary Storage: Convenience is a click away

What comes into your mind when you think of putting something “in storage”? For most people, this conjures up images of things put out of sight and out of mind for an indefinite period of time. Storage is where you confine the old hobbies you don’t intend on picking up again, toys and clothes of children who aren’t children anymore, or inherited heirlooms that just don’t fit your home’s modern look.

In short, people think of storage as something permanent. However, increasingly millions of Americans, particularly in cities like New York, are discovering convenient ways in which they can make storage work for them. People are finding a storage industry that is shifting to a more service-orientated model in which storage plans and solutions are customized and tailored to suit a customer’s particular needs.

Boxie24 is a leader in this new trend to full-service storage which is opening up convenient, flexible ways to temporarily store your items to save space and stress.

Temporary Self Storage

What is the benefit of temporary storage

You may think the idea of temporary storage sounds interesting, but what really are the benefits of having access to an extra space?

  • Having a flexible storage plan can allow you to temporarily declutter your home. What it means to “temporarily declutter” is to swap items in and out of your storage depending on when you think you may need them.

In essence, it is making use of the Boxie24 model, in which getting something delivered to your door is as easy as an email or phone call, to change from the old idea of storage as somewhere you put something only if you’re sure you’ll never need it again. In New York, the value of being able to simply have somewhere to put your stuff so that it no longer gets trapped underfoot is extremely high.

New York has the highest rent anywhere in the world, which means that nobody has enough space. This feeling of being crowded, even in your own home has been shown to have negative effects on everything from mental health to productivity. As we’re spending more and more time at home, the value of temporarily decluttering and finding some space to breathe in a claustrophobic city is becoming clearer and clearer.

Suggestions for temporary storage:

What we find at Boxie24 is that these ideas sound very interesting in principle, who doesn’t want more space right?, but that people often struggle to begin selecting things that they want to get out of the way. So we’ve drawn up a list of things you may want to approach when thinking about temporary storage.

  1. Seasonal Storage: This is by far the most common form of temporary storage we see at Boxie24. Seasonal storage is a simple way of freeing up space in your home that is being taken up by items that you don’t intend to use for at least another 6 months. In the winter months, consider storing outdoor furniture, large outdoor grills, or summer sports equipment like golf clubs or surfboards. This will have the dual impact of freeing up space and keeping your items protected from the city’s harsh winters. In the summer months, consider getting rid of bulky winter items such as large coats, skiing equipment or patio heaters. These are often the types of things that end up being tripped over in June, which can be so frustrating.

  1. Students Storage: At Boxie24 we have storage solutions for every conceivable size and budget. We find a lot of students who come to New York to study from all over the country and world find it much easier to temporarily store their items over the summer break, rather than rent an apartment which they won’t be in for 4 months. When the time comes to return to New York, we deliver your stuff back to you at any location in the city. What’s more, Boxie24 values our student customers so much that we offer a 10% discount to any student wanting to use our services! 

  2. Renovations: Having some much-needed and long-anticipated work done to the house? But maybe you’re worried about your furniture’s safety in the room being painted or remodeled? This is the predicament that Boxie24 has solved for many of its customers. Rather than covering your items with protective plastic and hoping for the best, it is worth considering having them moved totally out of harm's way so that you can be sure that they’re safe and ready to go back into that remodeled space. Then, once your work has been done, our team will move them right back into the room and you can get back to making sure that everything is in its place.

  3. Business Storage: Temporary storage can also work wonders for businesses. During the COVID 19 pandemic, Boxie24 has helped hundreds of business owners store stock and other assets while temporarily closed. We also see restaurants wanting their patio furniture and umbrellas stored during winter and online stores using us to keep stock ready for shipping to customers. In short, for every business, there is a unique need and for every unique need there is  a Boxie24 solution

Ferny F.

I looked all over for reasonable storage to take care of my stuff while I'm out of the city indefinitely. Boxie was super helpful and easy. Kevin worked with me to find exactly the right storage unit for my stuff and went over the pricing with me very patiently. On the pick-up day, the movers were a little late but they worked so fast it was all over by dinner time. They were friendly and professional. I'm so grateful.

My family is so grateful to have such a professional working team to move our stuff into storage. From the beginning James communicated really well and answered all my questions and made the process easy. Boxie 24 was the one good thing that worked for us! I will definitely be recommending these guys to future clients and friends. Certainly in our next move.

Sarah B.

Wanted to update my review after we received our items back. Again, 100% effortless process. The guys showed up on time, dropped things off and then came back for the boxes once we had unpacked. We feel so lucky to have found Boxie in the mess of terrible moving & storage companies out there, these guys stand above the rest. If we ever fall out of our post-Marie Kondo lifestyle again and need storage, they will be my first call.
