Storage Options in Hoboken
Hoboken’s not a big place, and it’s not known for its expansive basements and attics—and even if you have a basement, chances are it gets a bit wet down there. Not ideal for storing things. While many apartments and condos come with storage space, it’s usually not a lot. While there’s definitely something to be said for downsizing and living a simpler life, if you’re storing furniture for a bigger house, have collectibles you’re not willing to give up, or have a closet situation that requires rotating your wardrobe every few months, self-storage might be your only option. Surprisingly (or not surprisingly), Hoboken offers a relatively large number of options when it comes to self-storage. Here’s a quick overview of where you can stick all your stuff.

CubeSmart

(1040 Grand Street & 1312 Adams Street) CubeSmart is making its move to take over storage in the city, with its second location opening up on Adams Street presently. The new building will feature a mural painted by a local artist, and is just a few blocks away from their existing location on Grand Street. The new building is interesting because the one knock folks have on the Grand Street location is that it’s a bit old and run down, with ancient equipment that isn’t always in the best shape. One would imagine a brand new spot would have brand-new ladders, carts and elevators. With 15% off and one moth free if you book on the Internet, units start at $22 for a 3'x4' locker. However, we’ve heard that Internet pricing only lasts a few months.

Public Storage

(410 8th Street) Public Storage gets great reviews in general, offers a $1 first month with no commitment, and is fairly centrally located making it equally convenient for just about everyone in town. There’s plenty of parking, and their offerings begin at $40 for a small 5'x5' “reduced height” unit.

Extra Space Storage

(1607 Clinton Street) Located on the very edge of Hoboken near Weehawken, this place seems pretty well run, but online reviews repeat one thing pretty consistently: The price point keeps going up every few months, no matter what. Their cheapest rate is $43 for a 5'x5' “reduced height” unit (with a free first month), although with the constant rate increases that might not be an accurate measure of the costs.

MakeSpace

MakeSpace offers a large range of storage sizes beginning with a 2'x2' “hall closet” option for $72 a month. That’s a bit pricier than other storage options, but MakeSpace offers something the others don’t: They’ll come to you and pick up your stuff, then provide an online catalog of what you have in storage complete with photos. When you need something back, just click on the photo and MakeSpace will drop it off for you. For folks who don’t have a vehicle, MakeSpace is a compelling option even if it is a little pricier—although, just like with a moving company, you’ll have to trust them to handle your stuff correctly. There you go; you don't have to live in a maze of stuff any more! Unless that's your thing, of course. Just remember that people have died when their stuff collapsed on top of them. Just sayin'.
