The Top 6 Reasons Students Need Self Storage

6 important and interesting reasons that students could benefit from self storage both short and long term.

If you are a university student, you are likely to be more focused on upcoming deadlines and social events than the items you belong. However, when it mounts up to the point you’re struggling to find space to work, or you’re facing a long summer inbetween accommodation and nowhere for your stuff, suddenly it all becomes a little more of a pressing issue.

Self storage is a really beneficial investment for students to make, when it comes to ‘stuff’. It does cost money of course, but it is affordable and actually, it pays for itself in the benefits it brings. Take a look at these 6 reasons you need to consider self storage right now:

  1. You Need Some Space Away From It All

OK it isn’t a weekend away in Cornwall, or a week away in the Bahamas, but it could make a very nice ‘escape’ space for the times your roommates are getting too much. A place to look at your collectors items or hobby items, to finish your essay in peace and quiet, to go through your additional clothes and fold, Marie Kondo style.

  1. You’ve Ran Out Of Room

Struggling to find the space to walk, work or sleep? You could definitely do with some cheap self storage to store your stuff.

  1. You Want To Store Your Sports Gear

Student rooms seem small enough as it is without cramming skis, bikes and other sports in there. Hobbies and sports are great, but not when they take up all your precious space. Cheap self storage provides a secure space for you to store all your sports gear.

  1. You’re Concerned About Theft

Lots of people are going to be in the place you live, from parties, friends of friends of friends and roommates partners or friends from home. You don’t know everyone and so you cannot trust everyone. A cheap self storage unit is extremely secure with CCTV, lighting, 24/7 reception and additional security to protect the items you keep there. No need to worry about sticky fingers! In a big city such as London you will be glad of it, and London storage need not be too expensive.

  1. You Have Too Much Stuff

You bought loads of gorgeous clothes from the vintage shop down the road, along with loads of great car boot furniture, those blankets Annie from the year above gave you when she left, and endless fancy dress gear….

The list goes on!

Sometimes though, you need to save the extra stuff for your bigger house next year, or you don’t have time to organise it all. Self storage provides a great intermediary space to store your belongings until you need them again, or have time to sort through them.

  1. You Don’t Want To/ Can’t Move Your Stuff Around

You might be going home for summer and moving into a new house next year. You might be taking a gap year. But perhaps you don’t want to lug all your things back and forth. Instead, why not use a self storage unit local to your university to store your items until you come back?

Cheap self storage really is an excellent idea for students. Who doesn’t need additional safe, affordable, easily reached space? Especially when there’s so many great needs for somewhere other than your uni room to store your things. Consider cheap self storage today for an easier university experience.
