A storage facility like no other

FR Review:
Day & Meyer, Murray & Young, an Art Deco building filled with portable steel vaults, feels more like a movie fantasy than a storage facility in Midtown Manhattan— clients frequently tell us “there’s nothing quite like it in the city.” Probably the most distinct feature of DMMY is their portovault system, solid steel containerized storage units 7’x7’x11’ in size. The vaults have a customized loading process, which operates on a tracking system. The staff will bring the unit to you in a specialized truck, load it up and take it to DMMY’s facility where they are stored on floors kept at a chilly sixty degrees for a reasonable monthly cost. Prices are slightly higher if you're engaging in a landlord-tenant arrangement (in which the client is self-insured and has his/her own lock). Private rooms (10’x10’x10’) are available at a higher price point—they are also temperature- and humidity-controlled. Discrete viewings of artwork and other pieces can be arranged through DMMY for average handling fees. No dangerous materials, jewelry, coins, cash or perishable items may be stored at DMMY, but people have stored items such as papers, musical instruments and wine.

Started in 1896, DMMY is now in its third generation of family ownership. References tell us that a distinguishing element of DMMY is its staff. When you think of storing your stuff in Manhattan, you don’t usually expect the people to be friendly, but DMMY has very little turnover and the environment is quite welcoming. Due to a long-standing relationship with Collins Brothers Moving Company, DMMY is able to accommodate and arrange long-distance moves with ease. Clients vary from art dealers to interior designers and, of course, average New Yorkers. The company is probably not worth the expense for storing your old college textbooks, but for special valuables, Day & Meyer, Murray & Young provides an extremely high level of security with a personal touch and is a pleasure to visit as well.

Representative Client Comments:
"I’ve worked with them for fifteen years." "They’re always available and accommodating." "I’ve never used a comparable facility. There simply is no other place like it." "They’ve helped me sell over 2,000 pieces from transport to import." "The only place I trust to handle my art." "The staff is proactive." “I’ve worked with DMMY for twenty years and have used them for all of my projects.” “I implicitly trust them with my clients’ merchandise and my own merchandise.” “I even keep my own furniture stored with them.” “The staff is so accommodating and personal; they’re like an extension of my office to me.” “I use them for local deliveries, long-distance moves and shipping.” “A wonderful plus is that they’re located right in the middle of Manhattan so I don’t have to worry about traveling outside of the city to see my items.”

Project Description & Comments:
I've worked with DMMY for 20 years and have used them for all of my projects. I implicitly trust them with my clients' merchandise and my own merchandise. I even keep my own furniture stored with them. I never worry about anything. The staff is so accommodating and personal; they're like an extension of my office to me. I use then for local deliveries, long-distance moves and shipping. A wonderful plus is that they're located right in the middle of Manhattan so I don't have to worry about traveling outside of the city to see my items.
