Tarrytown Self Storage in Tarrytown, N.Y., has launched Door to Store, a pickup service for first-time customers living in Westchester County. New tenants can visit the facility to request pickup of their items for storage or make arrangements via phone. Staff will recommend a moving truck, help the customer choose a unit size, and suggest packing materials, according to a press release.
Before scheduling a pickup, the company provides the customer with a move-in checklist that assesses the number of items to be moved and any necessary supplies. This might include boxes, padding, dollies and other materials. Once the list is finalized, a move-in date is set.
The storage operator publicizes a “free pickup service” as well as Door to Store on its website. It’s unclear if or how the offerings differ.
Tarrytown Self Storage opened in 2017. The three-story facility features a pair of clocks modeled after London’s Big Ben and framed replicas of Norman Rockwell paintings. It’s owned by Westchester Self-Storage, which operates 17 facilities under various brand names in New York. The family-owned business opened its first storage facility in Bedford Hills, N.Y., 28 years ago.
