For over 6 years in a row Divine Moving and Storage has been beating the public self storage prices.
In most cases we were cheaper by 35%-40% and even 50%-65% if comparing us to Manhattan Mini Storage rates (rates as advertised on their website- excluding special promotions).
We offer to our customers short term and even daily rates with no deposits, monthly and of course long term storage as well.
You can always add (or remove) more boxes and furniture without needing to switch rooms, you are only charged for the space you use and not the room size as the mini storages do.
Our facility is monitored 24/7 and has the top of the line security including 1080HD video surveillance.
Unlike public storage we don't allow access without an appointment in order for us to have a record and track our visitors at any given time for extra security.
The reason for that was born years ago when the bed bug epidemic was running wild in NYC and we wanted to have a better grip on what customers are brining in and in what vehicles, since then we don't allow rental trucks or any non owned vehicles in to our building knowing that those trucks are never treated for bugs as opposed to ours who are treated daily. (no one here wanted to bring a "pet" home to our kids)
On move day our movers will inspect your furniture and log any issues such as nicks and scratches on an itemized inventory sheet including the number of boxes and contents if known. This master list is given to the client and from there the items are checked once arriving at the storage to make sure everything arrived and checked in. On move out day the list is checked again when the team is loading it from storage and once more once it arrives back to your new apartment.
This level of checks, inspections and detailed inventory is unheard off in the self storage industry.
We store and protect your belongings in the safest manner and for that reason we don't allow unscheduled visits since if you remove boxes without us marking it on the inventory pages we will be "missing" items on delivery.
A few weeks ago we logged a complaint from a young lady stating she didn't agreed to open storage concept.. She clearly didn't understand the open part of it. We are not open as the mini storages our security tops theirs by multiples of times. The same young lady complained that she wanted to inspect her belongings, we don't unpack the wrappings until the move out as there is no point to repackage everything again. We mark the goods coming in so we don't have surprises on move out day.
For some clients the extra levels of protection is not needed but we feel we need to take those measures as we are 100% liable for your belongings while they are in our safe keeping.
