Close to home personal storage arguably makes better economic sense if you live in Manhattan than anywhere else in the country. New York City living and working space is very expensive simply because of the rules of supply and demand.

Sofia Storage Centers provides small, medium and large companies with affordable, and very accessible Business and Records Storage. As with all of our storage, we offer a variety of locations, storage unit sizes and pricing opportunities for our business customers.
Sofia storage has been family owned and operated for over 100 years.

Customers have used our facilities for storing extra furniture, business inventories, estates and trusts, staging furniture, seasonal clothing, art and antiques, legal files and more.
Among other valuables the Sofia Family has been entrusted with Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa and the treasures of King Tutankhamun's Tomb.
With three safe and convenient self-storage facilities located throughout Manhattan, Sofia Storage Centers is your neighborhood self-storage headquarters.

The Sofia Family has spent over a century delivering the services to New Yorkers that they have the right to expect. Visit us and see what a difference we can make in your life. We know how crowded New York City apartments can become. We have it on good advice - from our customers - that de-cluttering can have a life-changing impact. One client described it as "breakthrough that prevented a break down" which gave her the space to "really live again" in her apartment.
For the same reason, Sofia Storage Centers have been the first storage resource for businesses, law firms, art and antique dealers schools, hospitals, hotels, banks, insurance companies, etc.
Stop in and visit us at our main location 475 Amsterdam Ave (just south of West 83rd Street) in Manhattan.
However if you prefer to meet us at either of our other two Manhattan locations , 139 Franklin Street (at W. Broadway) or 4396 Broadway (at 188 Street) , please call 212 873-3600 for an appointment. We are in your neighborhood. We are located so close to our clients, they often consider their space here as an extra, cost-effective, closet or store room which allows them to relieve the over-crowding in their Manhattan apartment or business office.
You will be greeted by a friendly and helpful staff of storage specialists committed to helping you find the right storage solution. Once we know what you have to store we can help you choose the right sized room for your needs.You may have a list of items when you come in or you can use our on-line Storage Calculator.
We offer units ranging from 4'X4' lockers, to steel, natural gypsum or terracotta lined rooms and from vaults, to entire floors. You have the right to the most convenient storage. Our goal is to help you accomplish that while spending efficiently and optimizing all your space effectively. That may mean adding custom shelving to your units, providing astute storage advice (see Packing and Storage Tips) or offering customized packing . We are often asked how many banker boxes can easily fit into one of our lockers. The answer is 24, in uncrowded stacks of 4.
At Sofia it all begins with respect. We respect our customers. Your satisfaction and safety is important to us . We are here to protect both you and your valuables. Our locations are part of the neighborhood. We offer high tech monitoring and clean and well lit space. One of our customers says he "is glad he doesn't have to schlep his stuff to the West Side highway or New Jersey" as he rolls his seasonal goods right down the block from his apartment. He says " one of the worst things that can happen to you is to put your stuff in storage and then come back and find it gone." He feels safe at Sofia.
The Sofia Storage buildings were originally built as neighborhood storage centers in the 1920's and 30's by craftsmen with the best of materials, natural and man-made. Why would anyone store their valuables in metal facilities that are subject to flooding, fire, mildew and theft?
The foundation of the Sofia success is family. The company has always been actively run by the Sofia family, now including third generation members. Many of our staff members have been with us for decades. Customers consistently comment on how this "family" consistently goes above and beyond for customers and employees (just read some of our customer testimonials).
I have been storing my belongings at Sofia Storage since 1981! For more than 30 years, I have experienced, without exception, nothing but courteousness, professionalism, and helpfulness. This is an unusually high level of customer service--rarely seen in any branch. The facilities are impeccably clean, organized, and secured, and the staff goes out of its way to create a personal and accommodating environment.
When I recently decided to sell my grand piano--which has been stored with great care for a number of years at Sofia--it was necessary for me to photograph the instrument at the facility. On the day of my visit, the staff, and members of the Sofia family, including Alice, John and Tom graciously and efficiently had the instrument moved to a convenient and accessible area, where I was able to properly photograph it; this was a tremendous help to me. Upon returning home, I realized that I had overlooked the photographing of a particular part of the piano. Literally within minutes of my contacting Sofia Storage, Leonard Sofia photographed the part and emailed me the photos.
Their sincere efforts in personally assisting me has demonstrated, once again, their high level of customer service. It has also reminded me of why I have placed my trust in Sofia for so many years. My praise, thanks, and appreciation to all at Sofia Storage.

- Tom Higgins 10/03/13
I am extremely pleased with the service that Sofia Storage has provided to me. The staff are very friendly, helpful, and professional. Francis, in particular, was a joy to work with. The storage units were clean and spacious and I use them again as well as recommend them to anyone I know who might need a storage facility in the future.
Thanks to everyone at Sofia Storage for such a good experience.

Francis and Sam were a great help in helping me move in and out and for regular use of my storage locker. They were always friendly and I enjoyed talking with them - very professional.
-Alex Lamis 5/18/13
Sofia Storage provided excellent service throughout our entire procedure. Going above and beyond that of a storage center, its entire staff was exceedingly professional, courteous, and extremely instrumental in such a big project and move. Reliable, convenient, and helpful, I would suggest Sofia Storage Centers to all.
- Jonathan Hawkins 5/01/13
I have been working with Sofia for 10 years. It's a family run business with friendly, professional staff. They have the same employees and Francis is a gem. I think employee retention, and a well-run facility are evidence of my endorsement.
- Jaye Bea Smalley 4/30/13
My husband and I are pleased to recommend Sofia Storage Centers as a clean and safe place to store belongings. We have used Sofia Storage since 2005, and have been totally satisfied with the storage facility and the staff, which has always been courteous and helpful.

- Eva Kane 3/6/13
All of your staff, without exception, is extremely personable and recalls an earlier, more intimate New York.
- Paul and Francis 1/24/13
I think quite frankly and fondly of Sofia Storage. On two separate occasions-each comprising of several years- I used their services and almost thought of them as a second home. I was treated with kindness and respect even though my locker (room) was on the platform and someone had to come and unlock the gate for me (which shows how secure personal items were handled), I never felt I was a bother. If I ever have to use their space again, I would not hesitate to call upon them. I recommend them highly as a storage facility.
- Florine Skolnick 12/31/12
Having storage at Sofia Storage on 83rd St. & Amsterdam Ave. is a huge convenience. Everything works, the staff is helpful and they provide large shelves as needed. I use it like an extra closet.
