Why Students Need Self Storage

If you’re a student, moving from one home to another could be a part of your life, whether you’re moving into a new digs, going home for the holidays or changing residences.

This means that for many students, as they get ready to relax after an action packed term or start their holiday job, they have one more important task to complete. This includes sorting out new accommodation for the upcoming term and finding a safe place to store their contents over the holidays.  

Students often need to act fast in finding new accommodation, but where do they store their contents prior to moving? The answer is simple – use student self storage.

An increasing number of students are turning to self storage at Storage King as a simple and convenient means of storing their items while they go on holiday or wait for accommodation arrangements to be sorted out. Here’s why:

Off-site storage of outdoor and sports equipment

Many students enjoy a busy lifestyle which includes balancing academics with sport or a hobby. This usually entails accumulating extra equipment. End squabbles with your flatmate by making use of self storage, and you won’t need to keep that infrequently used surf board or bike in the lounge.

Holiday time

The end of the term comes with its own stressors, including studying for exams, clearing out your accommodation and making travel arrangements. If your student accommodation is a shared flat or student residence, the uncertainty of not knowing who will be able to access your belongings can be disconcerting. Self storage provides a safe space where you can keep your valuables during the holidays. If you live far away, transporting your belongings back home can also incur costs.
