6 x 3 Self Storage Unit in Brooklyn, New York

"I absolutely loved everything about the contact free sign up and personal touch of the super friendly staff at Stuuf, where I acquired a clean and large self-storage unit hassle-free. It's conveniently located and incredibly secure. I enjoyed every bit of my move in date which was just ONE DAY after I purchased it. Nothing has ever been easier or painless. I highly recommend this site as well as the team at Stuuf self storage. Thank you to you all!"

"Storing with Stuf was super easy. I live in the area and wanted extra space at home so I moved some belongings into this beautiful facility, both inside and out (I can’t believe I’m saying that about self-storage). There are a few self-storage providers in the area but none of them had very inviting spaces; plus, Stuf was pretty competitive in rate and had amazing customer service from the first interaction. The team even met me on site to lend a helping hand and gave me some swag to take home (a mask which was very appreciated)."

"Love Stuf! I'm really happy with moving my storage unit to Stuf. Very easy reservation process, done virtually and Katrina was SO kind and helpful on the phone. They are just a phone call away if you run into any issues. I only had one, I couldn't open my unit initially, but I just had to jiggle the handle/lock and viola! "

What is Neighbor?

In a few words, Neighbor is an online peer-to-peer community that connects those who have extra space with those in need of storage. We love to help our hosts earn extra money and our renters save money. It’s that simple!

We’re on a mission to solve our neighbor’s problems, and that starts with the space issue. Some neighbors have too much, and some have not enough. By building community, working together, and staying neighborly, we are changing the way we think about self-storage.

Climate Controlled Storage Units Near New York City

Your possessions are more at risk with the more moisture there is. New York City humidity can get very high in the winter and summer, so many items, such as important files, electronics, clothing, antique furniture, musical instruments, and books, might need a climate-controlled self storage unit to prevent mildew or mold from occurring. This type of storage unit will also protect your belongings from New York City's winter cold spells and extreme summer heat. If you don't go with climate-controlled self storage, check on your belongings often. Before storing your items, make sure they're completely dry, pack smaller pieces in plastic storage containers, and consider investing in a humidity monitor to keep track of moisture levels.

Types of New York City Storage Units

You'll find several types of inexpensive storage units on Neighbor. Here are the basics:

  • Indoor storage: An indoor storage unit in New York City, especially a climate-controlled storage unit, offers additional defense from the area's high summer temperatures. This type of storage unit provides the most security.
  • Covered storage: Sports equipment, heavy tools, outdoor furniture, RVs, trucks, or cars typically do well in covered self storage units. While still technically outdoors, these New York City storage units shield your belongings from precipitation or sun damage.
