Type of unit

Storage facilities offer everything from basic garage type storage to climate-controlled units. Summer indoors and several floors up all others are outside and on the ground. You need to think about what you’re putting in storage and the potential for damage. Although the storage facility might not admit that your items could get damage issues like flooding from rain and melted snow could cause trouble with those ground units.


You definitely want a storage facility that is monitored around the clock. You should be able to review a facility security system. Asked to actually see how they record their property.

How much would you pay for a parking spot? Most of us who live in homes are lucky to have a driveway or garage for easy access. Down in Manhattan, a new condo building in SoHo has put a price of one-million dollars on a 200-square-foot parking spot. You read that right: one-million dollars to park your car. You don’t even get to own that spot. It’s just a lease for 99 years. Plus, if you move, the spot gets resold but that doesn’t automatically mean you’ll get the million back. This puts your own garage into a new perspective, doesn’t it? If you’ve turned your garage into a storage unit, maybe it’s time to get out the junk and park your car in there once again. Junk King can help you get there.


Winter is just around the corner. That means the potential for more storms. You shouldn’t spend another cold season shoveling out your car when you’ve got a perfectly good parking space in your garage. What is the clutter in there? Some folks park a treadmill in the garage in the hopes of shedding a few pounds. What happens is that the treadmill goes unused and becomes a tray for other boxes. Speaking of boxes, the garage is the perfect place to store whatever you’ve packed up and aren’t using. Shelves along a wall are a good way to organize but over the years, those shelves become crowded out and the boxes fill up the garage. Cue Junk King for the removal!
