To set up your Clinton Hill storage you need to decide on the type of storage unit

So, before you sign the contract to rent Clinton Hill storage unit you need to be sure what type of storage unit you need. If you have sensitive items, we highly recommend using a climate-controlled storage unit. There are a lot of benefits to a climate-controlled storage unit, and the most important one is that you will avoid damage. The temperature will always be the same, and items that are sensitive to temperature changes (antique furniture, electronics, art…) will not get damaged.

To organize your Clinton Hill storage – think vertically

This is advice that you will hear really often. Simply, if you look for or add some shelves into your storage unit – you will save a lot of space. A lot of small boxes, items can go to the shelves, and you will have a clear floor so you can navigate easily. This step is also important if you need to store some of your art. When it comes to packing art – you need to protect it very well. But also, you need to lean them against the wall. You should not stack them.

Items that you use often should be in the front

If you want to organize your Clinton Hill storage unit like a pro – you should place the items that you will use often in the front. That way you will avoid any disruption, and save a lot of time. You will be able to simply pick up the item, without moving anything!

These guys are TRUE PROFESSIONALS! We've now moved with them twice (once in 2017 and then again this week) and we really can't say enough good things about them. Simi is incredibly easy to work with for scheduling and quotes, and the crews - John, Super Mario, and everyone - are just awesome. They're quick, incredibly careful and conscientious, and super friendly. If we ever move again (and god I hope we don't have to) we're absolutely calling them.
