Why You Might Need Storage

Self storage is the cost-effective, easy answer to reduce the stress of moving belongings between homes. Some of the many reasons students choose this option are:

1. Limited Space

University and a build-up of possessions go hand in hand. From Fresher’s Week merchandise to course books, things can pile up. When you live in a small uni house with lots of housemates, where do you put it all? Self storage can help, and you can save even more space by storing seasonal items – why not put winter clothes and blankets away during the spring and summer?

2. You’re an International Student

If the UK isn’t your first home, you can’t take everything back with you for the break. Self storage provides somewhere easy to stow whatever you can’t pack into your suitcase.

3. Keep Sports Equipment Safe

University is a great opportunity to try new things and continue existing hobbies. Do you have bulky sports equipment that you simply can’t fit into your university bedroom? Or, do you only need it handy for part of the year? Putting it in storage can take a weight off of your mind, knowing it’s both secure and out of the way.

4. You’re Going Away

Are you leaving for a gap year, internship or summer abroad? These can often have quick turnarounds. Your simple solution for keeping your belongings safe and ready for your return is using storage.

5. The Contract is Up

Your lease might end before the summer, but you’re coming back to uni next year. If you want to save cluttering your family home, self storage is a great option. You could even share with housemates to save money. And, this gives you more time to focus on finding your new accommodation and less on moving!

6. You’re Moving to Uni

We collect from any fixed address in the UK, so if you’re starting a new year at university, we can help you transport everything you need in advance. You might be moving miles away without much space in your car – use storage so you don’t have to leave anything behind.
