College Student Storage Tips

Being out on your own for the first time makes you quickly realize how easy it is to fill up a small dorm room. Furnishing and decorating your own space can be formidable and fun. So what do you do with all those precious belongings you have collected when you leave school? One great option is to rent a storage unit. Here are a few of the reasons why this can be the perfect solution for you.

Makes Your Move Easier

Rather than trying to stuff your entire life in your car or a small rental truck, you can move your stuff in a few quick trips to a nearby storage unit. This is also the best alternative for students that want to fly back and forth to school.


Month-to-Month Rentals

Storage facilities offer rentals on a monthly basis, which means you only pay for the time you need. You can keep a unit just for the summer, or if you like having extra living space in your dorm, keep it for as long as you like.

Label Your Items

Besides arrangement, the other side of the organization coin is labeling. Ultimately, this comes down to how much time you want to spend in the storage unit between visits, especially if you have a lot of items. Labeling items will make your trips to retrieve whatever you need from the unit incredibly expedient.

Great During a Semester Abroad

More and more students are choosing to spend a semester abroad. Renting a secure storage unit gives you peace of mind knowing your closest possessions are exactly as you left them when you return.

A Storage Unit Sized for Every Need

Whether you have accumulated a modest amount of stuff or way more than you intended, there is a perfectly sized unit for your specific needs

Solution for after Graduation

Many students face a period of uncertainty between the time they graduate and when they find their dream job. Renting a storage unit after graduation allows you to rest easy knowing your precious belongings are safe while you’re figuring out the next step. Renting a storage unit can ease a lot of worries whether you are between semesters, moving into a dorm room or studying abroad, and is a great way to keep up with everything while transitioning back to, or home from, school. It will be a comfort knowing your belongings are in good hands while you’re off enjoying life!
