My experience with Nannybag

I just tried the Nanny located on 31st Street, not far away from Herald Square and the Empire State Building.
It's a luggage store, and a FedEx/UPS store.
I simply told them that I wanted to leave my suitcase and they took me to the back of the store.

They checked that I was registered in Nannybag, they put a tag on my suitcase and I left it there.

They gave me my reservation number. The whole process took less than 5 minutes.

How and when to reserve?

You can do it whenever you want, even until the last minute.
