Student Storage Tips

  • Get organised. Declutter and your possessions beforehand and have a clearout – there’s no need to store items you don’t need!
  • Choose the right packaging. Storing clothing, books or any other items that are susceptible to mould growth or could be easily damaged by moisture? Make sure you choose durable, airtight plastic containers.
  • Label everything. Write the contents of each box on a label and stick it to the box. That way, when you next go to retrieve items from your unit, you’ll know exactly where everything is. You’ll thank ‘future you’ for putting in that bit of extra effort – the more well organised your unit, the better.

Good facilities...Staff always very helpful

Most students who rent units with us tend to go for one of our smaller options, in the region of 25-50 sq ft. To give you an idea, a 50 sq ft unit is half the size of a standard garage. Not sure which to go for? Just give us a call or drop us an email – we’re here to help.

This of course depends on which unit you choose, along with a few other variables like your insurance cover and access level. This is why we don’t provide standard pricing and require customers to get a quote – everyone’s needs are different. Getting a quote is free and will only take a few minutes!

Absolutely. We don’t believe in locking our customers into cumbersome contracts, so you’ll be able to cancel whenever you like.
