Moving and self-storage provider Men On The Move Inc. celebrated the opening of its fourth self-storage facility with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on May 17. More than 250 people attended the grand opening of the Glen Cove, N.Y., location, a two-story, 89,000-square-foot facility that is fully climate-controlled.
Company owner John Beyer invested $3.5 million to renovate a circuit-board manufacturing plant that had been vacant since 2007. Men On The Move gutted the building and expanded its capacity from 52,000 square feet. The new complex offers 835 storage units and is equipped for vehicle storage.
With the nearest competitor six miles away, Beyer said the facility has been well-received in the community. Thus far, customers range from residents storing seasonal items to businesses looking for records storage, he said.
Men On The Move began 27 years ago as a local moving company before expanding into self-storage as way to accommodate moving customers’ needs. The company’s other New York facilities are located in Huntington, Floral Park and Islandia.
