This is one of a series of articles spotlighting our storage facilities and neighborhoods.

The southernmost part of the state and one of the five boroughs of New York City, Staten Island is a great place to live if the everyday stresses from “city life” isn’t for you. With a population of about 476,000 and occupying 58 square miles, Staten Island is the least populated borough in New York, yet has the highest median household income out of all five boroughs. Nicknamed “The Greenest Borough”, Staten Island boasts over 170 parks, covering over 12,000 acres of protected land!

Take a tour of this location:

Located in Mariners Harbor right on the waterfront, CubeSmart Self-Storage in Staten Island, NY is the ideal location for someone moving to or from the City to store excess belongings.

With over 900 units in total, our managers are there for you to ensure you get the unit best suited to your individual needs. In addition to offering 24-hour video recording, we sell locks and packing supplies, a move-in truck and driver is available, and dollies are on site to make transporting your belongings easier. Our manager recommends placing the items you may need to get to in the back of the truck, so it’s the last thing to come out of the truck to be placed in the front of your cube!

The pricing was fair and the facility was organized and clean. I couldn't have asked for better customer service. Keep up the good work!!!”

“Very clean and very convenient!
The sales associate Jennifer Fox was awesome! She explained everything to us in detail and she is the reason we decided to rent a unit. Very professional, very knowledgeable, and a great attitude!
Before you purchase any moving items like boxes and bags check this place out first. They beat all of the other prices I have seen out there.
I would recommend this place to anybody with storage needs”
