    Why Storage in Manhattan?

    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.

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.

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.

Sofia Storage Team

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 would like to comment on my experience using Sofia Storage at 83rd and Amsterdam Ave. in NYC. The entire staff; especially Medina, Francis, and Bob, were most helpful and courteous. It is refreshing to still find people in the business community with high integrity and a great smile. We will be recommending Sofia to all of our friends...

It has been a very good place for storing personal items. Clean and easy access. Only downside was the walking distance from 72nd Street. We got a storage space in our building otherwise we would have stayed at Sofia Storage.

 It has been a truly pleasurable experience storing at Sofia Storage over the past 10 years. The facility is the cleanest facility I’ve ever rented from.

We have stored at Sofia Storage for four years. It seems unbelievable to say that going to your storage unit is a “pleasure” but it was!

I have never experienced such great service as I have with Sofia Storage Center. I have been a tenant here for 6.5 years and I have felt like I have known the people here all my life. Francis, Ron, and Mike were a huge help and made my everyday work experience easy and enjoyable. Being a family owned business really makes a difference and Sofia makes you feel like you are part of the family...
