How You can Help Albany NY Families This Holiday Season

Our Storage Facility

As the holidays get closer, Albany Super Storage is asking the community for help. We have partnered with The Salvation Army to raise money for its holiday initiative, Rescue Christmas. You can donate at our office on Broadway to help make a difference in the Albany NY neighborhood this holiday season. Support Your Albany NY Neighbors During the Holidays 2020 brought a lot of change and uncertainty, and many families are left in financial distress. The Salvation Army estimates that they will be helping 155% more people this holiday season in comparison to previous years. Unemployment rates are on the rise, and more people are seeking The Salvation Army’s services, such as meal distribution and the Angel Tree program. During a normal year, you would see The Salvation Army’s red kettles on street corners and outside stores collecting money. But since many people are moving toward shopping online, people are not carrying cash as frequently, and some stores have been forced to shut down, there are fewer opportunities to donate through the red kettles. That is why we need your help to make up for lost funding chances. The Salvation Army uses donated money for a range of services. It helps families pay their bills and buy groceries. Also, it supports local homeless shelters. The Salvation Army in New York has already served more than 5 million meals this year. You can be sure your donation is going directly to people in your community who need it. Stop by Albany Super Storage on Broadway to make a donation!

Find Storage Supplies at Our Albany NY Office

Our Storage Facility

Packing up your items does not have to overwhelm you. Albany Super Storage has resources as well as storage to make sure you have the best experience possible when storing with us. We sell storage supplies in our Albany NY office in case you forget boxes or need extra bubble wrap. For storage, choose from heated and temperature-controlled storage units as small as 3x5 feet and as large as 10x30 feet. Talk to one of our experts to help determine the best storage for you! 1. Heavily Label Your Boxes When we say “heavily,” we mean it. Go beyond marking the room in the house the items belong in. Make a list of all the items inside, so you can reference it later when you are looking for a specific item. You are going to need your recipe box. But it will not be very helpful if you cannot remember which kitchen box it is in. Save yourself time later by marking your boxes in the beginning. 2. Keep It Light It is normal to think that your big items should go in your big boxes. And while this makes the most sense spatially, there are other factors to consider. For starters, your biggest items many times are your heaviest. If a bunch of heavy items are packed into one box, that is going to be one heavy box. Avoid hurting your back and breaking your box by packing light objects in your big boxes and heavy objects in smaller boxes. 3. Ditch the Old, Raggedy Boxes You know the ones we are talking about. They have been in your attic or basement for a while. They have been through a few moves with you already and are barely holding on by the duct tape you put on last time. You want to avoid these for fragile and heavy items! Do not even risk your boxes bottoming out. If you need to replenish your box supply, Albany Super Storage sells storage supplies at our ...
