One of the best things about being a student is the long breaks you get between terms. Although it’s brilliant to have weeks to catch up with friends and family, travel or earn some money, you may have concerns about keeping your stuff safe while you’re away. If you rent a room in a house with friends or you’re living in college or university halls of residence, you may not be comfortable with the idea of leaving your possessions for a period of time. If you don’t have the option to move everything you own to your parents’ house for the holidays, it’s worth considering self storage.

The benefits of self storage for students

Self storage offers a wealth of benefits for college students. Most students have long breaks at Christmas and Easter and an even longer holiday in the summer. When you’re away from your room, or you’ve moved out of one property and not moved into another yet, this may present you with a question about what you’re going to do with your stuff. You probably don’t like the idea of leaving everything you own in a room in halls or keeping your belongings in a rented house for a month or two. If you’re moving into a new property and you haven’t got the keys yet, you may also find yourself in a situation where you don’t have anywhere to move your possessions. Self storage provides a solution. Whether you’re in the middle of the year or you’re preparing for a new year, using a storage unit is an easy, convenient way to keep your stuff safe. Storage units are likely to be much safer than leaving items in a room in a house or block of flats, as they are patrolled by security personnel and monitored by CCTV.

As well as giving you peace of mind that your belongings will be secure, self storage can also work out cheaper. If you come to the end of a contract in June and you don’t want to move into a new house until term starts in September, you may find yourself paying to take on a new contract in July just so that you have somewhere to keep your possessions. With self storage, you’ll save a huge amount of money by paying for access to a storage unit rather than paying for a room in a house or taking out a contract in halls of residence that covers the summer months. You can choose how long to store books and furniture for, and when you come to move, you can simply relocate everything from your unit to your new home.

Are you a student looking for a safe, convenient way to store your belongings during the holidays? If you’re moving from one property to another, or you don’t like the thought of leaving everything in your room for a month or even longer, self storage is an option worth considering. If you have a storage unit, you can enjoy peace of mind and make the most of the time you have off.
