With approximately 8.4 million residents as of the 2018 census, New York City is the most populated city in the country and has a median home cost of $680,500.

What to Consider when Looking for Storage in New York City, NY

When thinking about storing your belongings in a New York City storage facility, it’s important to consider factors such as when and how long you’ll be storing your items, the types of items you’re storing and the level of security you desire in a facility. If you’re storing items that could be affected by extremely cold temperatures or fluctuations in moisture levels, the city’s high July humidity levels or cold winter months may make it more beneficial to select a climate-controlled unit. A climate-controlled storage unit will help protect your belongings from damage such as humidity-induced mold growth and wood shrinking or cracking that can occur when the air becomes too cold.

Fortunately, in New York City, property crime rates including theft and burglary average over 10% lower than the national average. However, because rates may vary throughout the city depending on the neighborhood, you may want to learn about a facility’s security systems such as entry guards, checkpoints and camera surveillance. This may be an even greater concern if you plan to access your unit late at night and are considering a facility that has 24-hour access.
