Items you shouldn’t store in your Brooklyn apartment


When you move to a new home you want to keep everything with you. But the truth is that you do not need all the items from your previous home with you. If you find the right moving company they will offer you an appropriate storage unit to place these belongings. Here are some of the items that you shouldn’t store in your Brooklyn apartment.

Declutter your home

When you are moving to another place it is an ideal moment to declutter your home. There are most certainly in your home some items that are accumulated over the years and that you do not need anymore. Maybe you have the items that you can still use but you don’t need them or you shouldn’t keep them in your apartment. With the items you do not need is easy. You can:

  • the items you cannot use you should throw away and you shouldn’t store in your Brooklyn apartment any of them
  • give them to some friends or family
  • if they are in good condition, you can donate them
  • you can sell them, by organizing a garage sale or on the internet
  • or, you can store these items. You can search for the public storage New York has to offer and place them into one of them.

What you shouldn’t store in your Brooklyn apartment

If you have some items that you can’t store in your apartment or you do not need them at the moment, you can store them. Also, as already said there are certain items that you shouldn’t store in your apartment. You should not keep some dangerous substances, chemicals, etc. If you have painted your apartment and there is some paint left, you should not leave that in your apartment. The same thing is with some tools that you don’t need and that can be dangerous, especially if you have kids.

On the other hand, there is no need to keep everything in your apartment and make a mess with the unnecessary items. You don’t need all the small kitchen appliances, you do not use all of that every day. There is no need to keep all kinds of glasses in the apartment. The same thing is with empty bottles, mugs, clothes, etc. There are for sure some books you have maybe used during college but you do not need them anymore. During the summer season, you do not need the ski equipment for sure. Store all of these items but make sure you clean them first and to keep clean and organized your storage unit too.

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.
