The summer holidays are fast approaching! For students, that often means packing up your belongings and moving out – but do you have an easy and safe place to put everything? Consider the benefits of student storage and see if you can take some of the stress out of the end of term chaos.

Is Student Storage Right for You?

If you’re a student moving out of your accommodation for the summer, an international student worrying what to do with your belongings, or a graduating student unsure of your next move, we have perfect stress-free solutions for you. University can be stressful even at the best of times, let alone when you’re worrying about how to transport everything home – including all those heavy books! Investing in student storage will take a weight off your shoulders, so you can focus on the things that really matter.

What are the Benefits?

Using storage solutions will put yours and your family’s minds at ease. It will save you the effort and costs of transporting everything home across the country, and then back again next term when you move into your new home.

Also, storage companies often have competitive pricing options for students to take advantage of.

Here’s What You’ll Need to Know

When you’re moving out of your university accommodation, it’s important not to leave everything until last minute. Maybe consider booking your storage early, so you will have one less thing to worry about come to the end of the term.

It will help to confirm with your accommodation team the particular move-out dates and times, the check-out process and loading bay access. This will get you prepared and ready to plan your moving and storage process and make it as swift and easy as possible.

Before packing your storage boxes, we would recommend having a look through your belongings. Sort through what you need to pack, items to go in the bin, and items to donate. This de-cluttering will minimise your storage costs and assure that you only store the items you need.


Packing shouldn’t be a hard job, but there are some dos and don’ts to pay attention to. Make sure you have and use double-walled boxes, bubble wrap, and strong tape. It is also wise to label every box, making it easier to find your belongings in each box when you move.

However, it’s important to not pack with things like crisp boxes or flimsy crates that damage easily. Unpackaged sharp objects, liquids and perishable items are also a no-no!

When it comes to moving out, it doesn’t have to be a painful process. Choose a trustworthy and reliable company to take good care of your things, so you can enjoy your holidays. Why not check out our competitive pricing for student storage? Our friendly team and customer support will guide you through a swift and simple process, and you can enjoy a stress-free summer.
