Storing winter gear, or any gear for that matter can be a challenge when you live in New York City. I love The Big Apple. I’ve been a city girl for my entire life, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. That being said, it presents its own unique set of challenges. One of the biggest of those is storage. Even a “big” NYC apartment isn’t exactly overflowing with storage. There are no attics here – no giant closets. What we New Yorkers call huge, homeowners in other areas call medium at best. That’s why I had to find a different way of storing winter gear, even Christmas presents, rather than putting it in the garage like everyone else. Because we don’t have one of those.
When we decided to give our apartment a makeover, we had to figure out where to store a significant portion of our stuff. It was a process of months that began with deciding to paint the kids’ rooms and sort of expanded into the entire house without us even knowing it. That’s when we discovered Manhattan Mini Storage. We were able to store all of our things easily in our unit, and it made the makeover process so much easier. They have helpful staff and an awesome storage shuttle to help you get your stuff to their facility. Between those two things and the extra space, we had zero worries about storage while we renovated our apartment. It worked out so well, we kept a unit for other things.
There is nothing better than using Manhattan Mini Storage when you live in New York City with a family of five. Their storage units are tall enough to store our skis, and spacious enough for us to keep all of our luggage, even our winter gear like heavy coats, thicker shirts and pants, hats, scarves, and so much more. I stored it all away in their convenient boxes and took it over in their equally convenient storage shuttle. With the holidays now here, I’ve even been making weekly visits to store all of the Christmas presents I’ve been purchasing for the kiddies and family members.
Manhattan Mini Storage is super fast, convenient way to just rotate everything out for the seasons and be done with it. Everything is safe, well taken care of, and we can be confident that it will be there when we need it, and in New York City, that’s the best combo you can ask for.
