Leaving your belongings in a building far away from your home doesn’t exactly scream safety and security.  We like our things close to us, which is probably part of the reason why many homes are incredibly cluttered.  Having easy access to our things is important, and letting them sit in a storage unit can feel inconvenient and counter-productive, but it doesn’t have to be that way.  There is such a thing as a great storage unit, and Divine Moving is here to help you find it.

Security

The most important and uncompromisable factor in choosing a storage unit is its level of security.  You’re putting things in storage to get them out of your house, not to get rid of them, and a storage unit that is left unlocked or carelessly maintained is one that you want to avoid.  Great New York storage is hard to come by, but you can trust us to set you up with an option that is safe and secure.

Convenience

If you’re on our site, then you’re likely looking for Manhattan storage.  Not New Jersey, not Connecticut, but Manhattan storage.  Too often, people settle for a storage unit that is incredibly far from their home, and what’s the point of having stuff and paying for a storage unit if you can never get to it?  Packing is not a perfect process, and chances are that you may have accidentally put some items in your storage unit that you may need in the near future.  A storage unit that is close to home is essential for easy access to your belongings.  If your storage unit is so far away that you can never muster the energy to go to it, it’s like you don’t even own your own things!

Size

Choosing a storage unit that is the right size for your needs is imperative in avoiding overspending and overcrowding.  When looking at all of your packed boxes, it can be hard to gauge how much you’re really looking at and what size space you’ll need to fit it into.  By hiring a professional moving company to evaluate your needs, you eliminate the risk of paying for square footage you don’t need or damaging your things by packing them too tightly.

Storage units should relieve stress, not add to it.  Call Diving Moving today to get set up with the perfect New York storage for your needs!

We got you covered and are here to help. Add space to your apartment with these five storage tips.

Storage Tips

  • Monsters aren’t the only things under your bed…

    Depending on the size of your bedroom your bed probably takes up a lot of space. Yeah the bed is nice and all to sleep on, but unbeknownst to many the bed can store a lot of storage beneath it. If the bed is off the floor you can place shoes or items beneath it. You can also buy a new storage bed, with cabinets that slide out to put your clothes or possessions in.

  • Fit space into your dresser like a pro!

    You don’t know how many times we heard of a client getting new dressers that were not needed. I remember we came to one of our client’s apartment in Brooklyn to move some of his stuff to storage. He told us how he was getting a new dresser and with our expertise we decided to check his current dresser. We saw how his current dresser had clothes thrown in that weren’t even properly folded. We taught him a very space efficient way of folding and also implemented drawer dividers. After teaching him these couple of tips he came to a conscious decision that he didn’t need a new dresser.

  • Boxes, boxes on the wall, who’s the greatest one of all?

    Place and paint boxes on the wall for a unique way to organize books, vitamins and little knick knacks.

  • Use shower curtain hooks for book bags or purses.

    This is a great way to hang and store book bags and purses that take space elsewhere to a nice hanging position.

  • Milk every inch of your closet space.

    You can use more clothing rods, and even install shelves to break up everything in a neat and efficient manner.

Now that we gave you some tips to improve storage space we hope you go out and do something about your storage problem!

Moving is an unfortunate hassle that many of us have to go through. The countless cardboard boxes, the planning and renting of the moving trucks are just enough to make your head spin. The most comfortable and optimal time for moving is usually right before or during Fall. This is the time kids usually start their new school year, and Fall for many is usually the unofficial start of the new year. During the fall many people plan to what they want to accomplish during the New Year and up-coming seasons.

The fall is the perfect time for a change and to make a move. Fall is the ultimate signaling of a new season taking place. The beautiful and vibrant colors of the leaves changing and the crisp scent and breeze of the air make fall one of the most enjoyed and beautiful months of the year!

Fall is the perfect time to move for plenty of reasons! First off, trying to move during the brutal extremes of the summer and winter seasons can be a nightmare. The summer is a problem for moving not only because of the hot and humid weather, but also because of the high demand of moving trucks, moving supplies and movers during the summer months. The summer is the moving boom and it can be difficult to reserve yourself a truck or movers for your specific move date unless booked for months in advance.

The problem with the winter weather is self-explanatory. Try moving into NYC or Manhattan during a winter storm and you are just asking for trouble! The slippery and icy conditions of the ground can be a problem, as can transporting the goods in the extreme cold. Trying to maneuver a moving truck in a busy city during the winter can really stink when you are trying to weave in and out of traffic from the cars and salt trucks. You are going to feel like Frogger the frog carrying your boxes to your new location trying to dodge dangerous and on-coming traffic!

The nice and cool weather of the Fall is the best climate to move. You have a nice breeze and beautiful scenery. After moving in a couple boxes you won’t have to worry about being exhausted and sweating like a dog in a desert. When you are moving make sure you get accumulated to the neighbors and also have your kids become comfortable with the change of schools. We don’t know the temperature around you, but moving into NYC during the Fall is a little cooler so you’d need to make sure you and your kids are bundled in a nice and light hoodie!

Now that we explained moving in the Fall we hope this article helped clear up a couple of questions or even re-affirmed things for you!
