If you’re at University, or college, as a full-time student living away from home, then you will probably be faced with a major dilemma every year – what do I do with my stuff when changing accommodation?
It is not uncommon for students to change their living arrangements with each year of study – from halls of residence to house sharing with friends or fellow students. This, of course, involves the packing and moving of all your possessions – sometimes back home to your parents in a different part of the country! There is an alternative though – student self-storage!
Here are some of the benefits of considering student summer storage before dragging all your worldly goods on a long trek at the end of the next term:
Storage is a cost effective alternative
Moving your possessions around the country can be expensive – you may have to hire a van and driver and there may be labour costs to pay. Some students continue to pay rent at their accommodations just to store their things, but this can be an expensive, and wasteful, overhead.
Student storage is often a much cheaper solution – you can even share the cost of a self-storage unit with other friends or housemates, saving them the arduous, labour intensive inconvenience of moving as well!
More secure than leaving possessions in empty accommodation
Almost inevitably, when continually packing and moving your goods, things will get damaged, broken or lost in the process. Student self-storage offer secure, dry and purpose-built units for the safe harbouring of your valued possessions. If you are storing all your things back at home, you are taking up what is perhaps valuable space at your families or friends properties – and they may be temporarily housed in damp garages or dusty lofts as the only space available. Self-storage units provide the perfect secure solution to your storage needs without inconveniencing anybody else!
Student storage is convenient all year round
Chelsea self-storage provide units of all sizes and they can be rented on a short or long term basis. This flexibility makes it an affordable option whether it is student summer storage you are after, or a longer-term solution for keeping your possessions safe even throughout your term time. You may have sports gear and equipment, or other ‘bulky’ items that clutter your daily living space – student accommodation is not really famed for its’ generous proportions – student self-storage is the perfect answer for relieving those cramped living conditions.
There are other, more enjoyable things to concern yourself with as a student, other than worrying about keeping your possessions safe – if you are looking for student storage in central London, then Chelsea Self-Storage is the answer.
