Winter Storage in NYC: Meurice, Hallak, or Madame Paulette?

Sorry if this has been discussed in the past, but I did some searches and they came up short.

After some problems with my storage solution last year, I decided to research the high-end dry cleaners this year as I think that the extra cost would be worth it if the end result is that nothing is ruined. The three top choices seem to be Meurice, Hallak, or Madame Paulette.

They all have good and bad reviews on Yelp and are probably in the same stratospheric price range. So I thought I might query here to see if any fellow NYC SF members have experience with any of them. Or even better, more than one of them.

Of course, recommendations for other outlets are always welcome!

Good experiences with Meurice; may also be the most economical of the three.

I have used the cleaning services of both MP and Hallak. Hallak was much better.

Thanks. I liked what Hallak had to say on their website about the way they care for tailored clothing.

I think it's coming down to Hallak versus Meurice. Madame Paulette was already the dark horse.

As I was sorting through things, I started thinking I might take the tailored stuff to Hallak and the trousers and knits to Meurice.

I vote for LuxeSwap.

After working your magic on my last batch, no doubt there will be something incoming!

Are you doing this because you don't have space in your house?

Yup. Closet space is at a premium. I'm hoping to remedy that soon, but in the meantime, a bunch of stuff needs to get out of the way. I have a decent-sized storage space that I rent, but I had bug damage from a neighbors cube in the past and don't want to take chances. It's the kind with the chicken wire for a roof.

We use MP on occassion, but not for storage. They are good, though I can't say if they are better or worse than Hallek. They are certainy expensive.

I have a friend who stores there and he swears by them. And then I have another friend who had said she had a bad experience there. She said they had an attitude like they didn't need her business. I'm thinking that Hallak is the newcomer and might try a little harder. (?)

Thanks. I am leaning slightly toward them only because they have an outpost Downtown.

Have you stored with them or just cleaned?

Just cleaning; very pleasant to deal with. Didn't even realize they are also downtown, but I think their delivery service is 'free'.
