On Demand Storage In NYC Creates Convenient Storage Solution For New Yorkers

There are many different obstacles that have to be overcome when living in New York City. One of those obstacles is a serious lack of space. According to Business Insider, a one bedroom apartment in New York has an average square footage of 750 sq. ft. and costs approximately $2,200. That’s a hefty rent expense, for not a lot of square footage and New Yorkers are paying the price, both literally and figuratively.

What are space starved New York City inhabitants to do about this issue? For many it’s downsize their belongings, but when that doesn't prove to be enough, they resort to putting their things into storage somewhere else. And that somewhere else is typically a self storage facility, but even that supposed solution has its problems.

Just last year the city proposed restrictions to the development of new self storage facili... claiming that the space those structures take up could be used for other things, like manufacturing and industry. Out of New York’s 240 self-storage buildings, 60 of those opened up within just the last 10 years so New York City’s troubles over the absence of storage space isn’t diminishing, it’s getting worse. And with even smaller living accommodations popping up around the city, like micro-apartments, the need for convenient storage solutions is even more crucial.

A convenient solution to these space issues, both the lack of space in the homes of New Yorkers and the controversy over using up city space for more self storage buildings, is on demand storage.

Unlike self storage, on demand storage companies come to those who are seeking storage, instead of the other way around. They offer pickups and deliveries of the items that need to go into storage. This is especially invaluable to New York City residents since they often do not have their own personal transportation. On demand storage removes the hassle of having to rent a truck, hire movers and drive back and forth to the facility whenever certain belongings are needed back.

On demand storage companies also offer a digital inventory of the customer’s stored items allowing them to schedule deliveries and pickups with just a few clicks.

Now, you might ask, what about the issue of additional sizable structures taking up city lands? Most on demand storage services have warehouses that exist outside of city limits, thus not taking up precious and scarce city real estate. Zippboxx, for example, houses their warehouse out in Suffolk County on Long Island, NY.

On demand storage in NYC is really opening up doors, or should we say space, for New Yorkers who clearly need more room for their stuff, but simply do not have it at home. Best of all, on demand storage companies are providing it in a way that doesn't interfere with the convenience seeking mindset of New Yorkers, or the valuable real estate of New York City.
