Moving Storage Solutions
You may need storage services for a variety of reasons. Whether you're moving to a new place, remodeling your current one, or simply lacking sufficient space, storage is a practical solution.
By working with local warehouses or operating their own storage facilities, professional NYC movers can offer you convenient moving storage solutions for your place of residence and business.

Whether you avail of the storage services of Mover New York or another licensed New York moving company , you must comply with the rules and regulations of the New York State Department of Transportation. Your NYC mover will first store your belongings for a limited period of time which will not exceed 30 days, or 180 days if stored outside New York.
Your NYC mover will store your belongings for 30 days or less in New York, or up to 180 days outside the Big Apple. During this initial storage period known as storage-in-transit, you will adhere to your moving company's terms and conditions. When this period expires, your goods will enter permanent storage, and from then on will be subject to the terms and conditions of the warehouse or facility in which they are stored.
Self storage is an alternative to the above storage solution. While self storage facilities can, for an extra cost, help you pack and unpack your goods from your moving storage container, self storage is essentially a do-it-yourself solution.
After properly packing your belongings, you must take them to your storage facility and place them in the storage space of your choice. The space you choose must be able to hold all your items without any problems. Depending on the situation, the mobile container in which your items were placed can also function as your storage unit.
If you opt for self storage, your goods will remain accessible to you at all times, and can be taken out at your convenience. By comparison, opting for your mover's storage solution will require you to make several arrangements before you can check and claim your property.
While the rules and regulations of self storage facilities may not be as strict as those of moving companies and local warehouses, it's worth mentioning that their security may not be as tight, either.
Things to remember
A contract must be signed with a storage facility no matter which storage solution you choose. Read this contract carefully before you sign it, and pay close attention to the fine print.
Also be sure to purchase sufficient insurance to ensure the protection of your property. Though your storage solution may only come with minimal insurance, it can be increased by your homeowners insurance or, for an additional cost, your storage facility.
