How Can We Help?

Are you looking to take a gap year or have a summer of travelling before you commence another year at university? If you’re preparing for adventures, there is plenty of organising to do. Booking transport, finding accommodation and planning excursions are all high up on the list. But what about your belongings?


If you live in halls of residence and your tenancy has come to an end, you may be at a loss on what to do with your personal items. After all, you can’t take all your bulky textbooks, clothes, bedding and kitchen supplies with you. That would be a rather expensive baggage allowance not to mention a heavy load to carry on your travels.


In this guide, we’ve got you covered. We understand that not every student is in a position to take their items back home to their parents’ house. If this is you, there’s no need to cancel your travelling plans! Self-storage units are the perfect home from home for all your stuff.


How can self storage help?


If you choose the right storage unit company, your items should be housed in a secure environment. The contracts should be flexible too. Units come in different sizes, and for a student, you’re likely to only need a smaller unit if you’re only storing the contents of a single room and a few kitchen supplies.


You can set off for the summer without worrying about your items. Upon your return, you can give your storage supplier a call and retrieve everything. Some providers will even transport your belongings to your accommodation and do all the heavy lifting. It’s a hassle-free solution.
