Living in New York City is great, but it comes at the expensive price of your (inevitably) small apartment. Not only is space at a premium, but any long-term vacations are difficult or out of the question because of your high rent. Believe it or not, having somewhere safe in NYC to store your belongings can make a big difference in what you can and can’t do. Check out three of the possibilities available if you rent a storage unit.

Start a Business

It is no secret that office space in New York is costly. Starting a store with a physical inventory is a big investment, and for many people, it seems like nothing more than a dream. It doesn’t have to be. If you rent out one of our affordable full-sized or mini storage units, you can keep your inventory there. You can even hang out in our lounge, work off your laptop, use our WiFi and grab a cup of coffee, if you need to. If you choose to work from home instead, you know your inventory is always nearby in a NYC storage facility.

Take That Dream Vacation

Ever wanted to just get up and leave town? A great way to open up this possibility is by subletting your apartment. You’ll still going to have a ton of your stuff lying about, which you might not be okay with if you are going to have strangers living in your apartment. Renting a mini storage locker or full-sized unit lets you store your most-prized things while you enjoy your vacation away from New York City.

Start Doing Something New

How often have you wanted to pick up a hobby like music or art and realized there was just not enough space in your little apartment? Clear out some space by putting some of your extra stuff in our units, or alternatively, you can put some of your hobby-related materials into one of our units. You could even turn your unit into a dedicated hobby space!
