“I’ll be home for Christmas” – a familiar song at this time of year – and something every parent looks forward to hearing from their offspring currently exiled away from home whilst studying hard! What they may not be quite so keen on though, is the paraphernalia that accompanies the returning child for the holidays. At a time of year when the house is probably unusually full anyway, with trees, decorations, presents and, perhaps, visiting relatives, the last thing they need to find space for is the full contents of your student accommodation! However, there is an easy solution to this dilemma – student storage!
Here are some of the benefits of student self-storage:
You don’t have to take all your possessions home
There are landlords – and some university halls – that will insist you fully vacate your student accommodation over the holiday period. In that situation, what do you do with all your valued possessions? Taking it home with you can prove difficult – the transportation of it costs time and money, as well the actual physical and practical issues of getting it home.
Student storage means you’ll probably only have to move your possessions a short distance, therefore making it easier, especially if you only have access to a small vehicle and multiple trips are required.
Safe & secure
Another advantage of self-storage is that you can rest easy knowing that your possessions are being kept safely and securely. All of our storage units are monitored and protected by the latest state-of-the-art security systems for 24 hours a day. Entry into both the general premises, and your individual unit, can only be accessed with unique codes and permissions.
Flexible access to your storage unit
Depending on the amount, and content, of your things for storage, it’s not always practical nor convenient to pack it all up and move it in one day. With student storage you can have access to your unit as often as you like – and at any time – throughout your storage tenure. This means that, if you want, or need, to, you can move your things in ‘stages’, both before you leave for your Christmas break, or on return when moving back into the student accommodation.
Share your space with a friend
Perhaps you don’t feel you have enough items to warrant paying for a self-storage unit? Well, why not share the space – and the cost – with a friend? Maybe your already share accommodation with someone who is in the same situation – you can both have private access to the shared unit – and it means you can help each other out with the moving of it all!
