How your NY storage unit can freshen up your living space
Maybe you can identify with the following scenario: You found the perfect New York City apartment right in the center of our favorite neighborhood. The moment you stepped inside, you fell in love. And to get it, you had to move quick. You submitted the application quickly to beat out the competition, and jumped for joy when you signed the lease.
But, sometimes, the perfect location comes with sacrifices. This place just isn’t as big as your apartment in the outer borough, and you have some tough choices to make. Do you really get rid of the desk that got you through college? Can you really part with half of your wardrobe, or weed out your shoe collection? And what would your mom say if that quilt that’s been passed down three generations is suddenly missing?
If you’ve ever found yourself in this bind, you know the struggle. Do you keep a cluttered apartment just because you can’t bear the thought of getting rid of some things? Do you try to loan out your items to friends so that you can decide to bring them back when you miss them enough?
For most people in this situation, a NY storage unit is the perfect solution. It will keep your belongings safe and sound until you’re ready to bring them back to your space. And if you’re still on the fence about whether you should invest in a NY storage unit, here are a few of the benefits our clients have shared with us about why they chose to go the storage route.
I can’t use this now, but I might want it later.
This is definitely the reason we hear most often from people who use storage services. It can be particularly difficult to make a decision about whether or not to keep an item if you’re facing something like a move, in which you have to make tough decisions quickly. Yet, it’s important to remember, too, that if you’re on the fence about whether to get rid of something, it’s because it has personal or monetary value to you. You don’t want to be flippant about getting rid of things that were important to you in the past.
With a NY storage unit, the pressure to make a decision is taken off you. Because, once you see your items after they’ve been in storage for a while, the decision will become clear. You’ll either still feel connected to that item or your indifference will tell you that it’s time to say goodbye. Having this buffer prevents you from making a snap decision that you might regret later.
I like to switch things up, but that’s not exactly cost-efficient.
We love New York because it is a city of change, Changing trends, Changing seasons, Changing fashions.
And with all of this newness around us all the time, you may feel inspired to shake up your own style, especially when it comes to your home. That’s where having a storage unit comes in.
Because, when you find new furniture, accent pieces, paintings, or other decor that is perfect for the current season or latest fashion, it’s always kind of a bummer to get rid of last season’s items. So, instead of purging your place of all those older pieces, put them in a storage unit instead. After all, styles are cyclical, and you might be happily surprised the next time you pull out that lamp you thought had gone out of fashion.
I feel more zen in a clutter-free space.
Alright, as much as we love this city of change, we also know that it can be a hectic place to live. Using a storage space is a great way to minimize clutter and make your apartment a more relaxing space.
And don’t worry. If you have a sudden use for one of your items, we provide 24-hour delivery to your home. So it’s as if all of your items are just on stand-by without being in your way.
I know I’m going to be moving a lot in the next few years, and I am so sick of packing and unpacking the things I don’t use all the time.
Moving is one of those things that most New Yorkers have to undergo, and all of us absolutely hate. If you know that you might be moving around once or twice within the next few years, having a NY storage unit takes off so much of the pressure on moving day.
When you only have to move the things that you use on a regular basis, you’ll feel much freer.
It’s a way to keep my belongings safe and in good condition.
There’s a misconception about storage units as a place where items get old, dusty and molded, but that’s simply not true. As long as you find a storage place with climate control, you can actually ensure that your belongings are safer from damage than they might be in your own home. Plus, the less you move your things around, the less exposed they’ll be to damage or wear.
Those are just some of the ways that having a storage unit can spruce up your home and allow you to take good care of your things!
