Making The Storage Process Affordable, Easy and Even Life-Changing.

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.

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.

Why Look for Sofia Storage Centers?

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).
