Storage Quarters Records Management Inc., a New York-based self-storage operator specializing in records-management services, has launched Box&Co as its valet-storage division. The company uses an online platform that allows customers to schedule item pickup, maintain a visual catalog of stored items, and schedule delivery of items to their home. It recently expanded its service area from New York City to Long Island, according to a press release.
Similar to other valet-style storage operators, Box&Co offers by-the-bin storage targeted at residents who don’t have adequate home storage. Items are stored at Storage Quarters self-storage facility in Garden City, N.Y., according to the company website. Pricing starts at $3.50 per medium-sized bin per month or $5.50 per large bin per month. File boxes and wardrobes are also available. Bulky items, such as bicycles, golf clubs and suitcases, may be stored for $12 per month per item. The company also offers three packages with a mixture of bins and bulky items ranging from $30 to $75 per month. The minimum duration of stay is three months. Special pricing plans for students are available.
Return deliveries cost $19.95 and are typically fulfilled within 24 to 48 hours of the request, according to the company website. Customers can use the company’s online dashboard to manage their belongings and schedule home delivery. They can also pickup items directly from the self-storage facility but must make arrangements at least 36 hours in advance.
New York City has seen the rise of several valet-storage businesses over the last four years. There are at least six other operators with service in the metropolitan area including BearaBins.com, Box Butler, Clutter, Handy, MakeSpace Labs Inc. and RedBin.
In addition to traditional self-storage, Storage Quarters offers records-management services including storage, document scanning and shredding. It also has a mobile-shredding service.
