Student Self Storage


What to do with your stuff over the summer holidays?

So it’s nearly the end of term at the university for many students and whether it’s your first or final year at university, hopefully, you’ve had a great time. Balancing your social life and those all-important studies can be challenging so you’re probably looking forward to a nice break over the summer months; whether you’re heading back to your parents in Britain, in another country or going travelling yourself with some friends.

With all of the chaos that ensues with the end of the year, you probably haven’t had a chance to think about what you are going to do with all of your stuff over the holidays. It’s amazing how quickly you start to gather stuff, even if you’re limited to one room in halls of residence.

When it comes to moving house, bringing all of your stuff back at once can be a testing experience. More to the point, if you’re returning in a few weeks it doesn’t make much sense to pack up everything you own and haul it back to the family home, only to do the return journey in a few weeks!

So, do you need storage?

The first thing you may want to double-check before deciding on storage is whether or not you will need to move all of your belongings out of your room every year. If you’re renting in private accommodation, check with the landlord to see if they are willing for you to leave your stuff in the house while you’re at home. Do bear in mind that some landlords may rent properties over the summer so it’s ideal to check this before deciding to leave your personal belongings there.

If you cannot leave your stuff behind and don’t have any suitable options when it comes to safely store your belongings, don’t feel that the only solution is to take everything home with you.

There is a better way!

Self-Storage Could be the Answer

Self-storage will allow you to securely store your belongings over the summer; simply pack up your belongings, take them to a local storage facility, put them in storage, lock the unit safely and forget about them until the new term. More importantly, start enjoying your summer holidays!

Location is the most important thing so opt for one that is close to your accommodation for the following year, otherwise, it will defeat the purpose if you have to transport your items a distance.
