When college students are nearing the end of the year, they’re studying for finals (you hope) and looking for summer jobs (again, you hope). The last thing on their minds is what to do with the furniture and belongings in their dorm room or apartment. When they finally realize (or mom and dad remind them) that something has to be done with these items, time is running short. Moving all of the furniture, clothes and accumulated debris all the way back home just isn’t feasible. It will take a professional mover, or at minimum, two cars and a small truck.
The solution to this problem is self-storage. We have secure, cost-efficient storage units that provide the perfect amount of space for dorm room and apartment-size belongings. Instead of hauling the mini-fridge, the furniture, and the TV from campus to home and back again, they can be dropped off at one of our safe, secure storage units for the summer months. Not only will this leave parent’s garages free for cars, but it will make the summer move off campus a much less stressful experience.
Here are the answers to a questions you may have.
What type of student will benefit from renting a storage unit?
If you’re in a situation where your home is distant from school and/or you’re studying abroad for the summer or a semester, renting a self-storage unit will be very advantageous. It will save the time and effort of packing and shipping your belongings back home.
What is the ideal size unit for students?
Most college students will have sufficient space if they rent a 5 x 5 or 5 x 10 unit. A 5 x 5 unit will hold small furniture, miscellaneous boxes, and home decor. A 5 x 10 unit should hold minimal amounts of small furniture, sofas, chairs, chests of drawers, and mattresses.
What is the cost of summer storage for college students?
Cost is typically based on the size of storage unit and the length of time rented. We offer flexible month-to-month lease terms, so you won’t be committed to a long-term contract. Don’t forget to check on our student discounts.
