If you’ve moved to the UK to study, you may want to return to your home country during the holiday periods to spend time with family. When the summer comes around, your tenancy may come to an end. Throughout the academic year, you may have bought quite a few items – some for your course and others for personal use. If you have some treasured personal possessions, you certainly won’t want to throw them away.
If you’re only returning home for a couple of months at most, chances are you won’t want the hassle and expense of taking all your possessions with you and bringing them back to the UK again. But, if you don’t have any accommodation to your name, what can you do?
Self-storage could be the answer.
In this guide, we’re looking at how self-storage works and how it could help make life a little easier as an international student living in the UK.
How does self-storage work?
Self-storage units come in a range of sizes. They have the capacity to house everything from a small, single bedroom all the way up to a large family-sized home.
The great thing about self-storage is that it’s secure and flexible. Some storage companies provide CCTV or round-the-clock security personnel.
Full flexibility means you can sign-up and cancel your hiring contract at any time. This means you won’t be tied into a lengthy contract or paying for a service you don’t need.
You can simply hire a suitably-sized unit for as long or as little time as you need.
Upon your return and when you move into your next year’s accommodation, you can contact your storage provider to cancel your contract and have your stuff brought to your latest abode.
