New York, NY (PressExposure) March 26, 2013 -- Gotham Mini Storage was recently featured in the New York Times by reporter C. J. Hughes for offering upscale amenities to discriminating Manhattan customers. He writes, "Like other self-storage facilities, Gotham sells cardboard boxes in its ground-floor retail area. Clean gray carpet covers upstairs hallways, which seem a far cry from the dingier spaces portrayed on A&E's popular reality show "Storage Wars" and its spinoffs. To set itself apart, Gotham offers free doughnuts to tenants and dog snacks to their four-legged friends. Tenants can also work on laptops with free Wi-Fi while enjoying music throughout the facility."
Hughes also wrote, "The building, which was a parking garage in the 1920s, has two truck-size elevators that tenants can use to move things directly from vehicle to storage. Gotham offers free pickups, not in a minivan like other companies, but a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter minibus."
Gotham Mini Storage's facility in New York City has wintertime heated and summertime air conditioned interior loading and keeps their "climate controlled" units close to room temperature year round. Customers enjoy custom built units, a full suite of moving supplies, and concierge moving solutions by a team of helpful moving professionals--all designed to take the pain out of moving.
Gotham Mini Storage is focused on adding comfort and amenities not found in your typical storage facility, including a coffee bar, free Wi-Fi, working space, and brand new tech-centric equipment. With customer convenience in mind, they developed the first "drive in" freight elevator in the country where customers can bring vehicles into the elevator and take items directly to their floor. This brand new, state-of-the-art self-storage facility developed by co-owners, Steve Schwartz and Jack Guttman of Broadway Storage did not come without some additional expense to the construction cost, but both felt it was well worth it for making Gotham Mini Storage stand out in a competitive New York storage unit market. "We know we've built a good product," said Mr. Guttman, who said he has been buying and selling self-storage facilities in New York for more than a decade. "It's different, and it's better."
And, that's what residents of the local Greenwich Village, East Village, Chelsea and Hell's Kitchen neighborhoods are looking for in a storage unit facility. Guttman comments, "Today's mini-storage users are demanding more than an industrial warehouse. With an inviting, state-of-the-art management office, newly renovated, extra-large elevators, and hallways that feel more like a living room than a storage building, we're bringing the next generation of storage to Manhattan."
