Why Is Self Storage Great For Students?

If you’re a student, chances are your accommodation will change each year, so it can be a bit of a nightmare figuring out where to store the stuff that you can’t fit into your current accommodation or the items you only need at certain points in the year. 

Investing in a self-storage unit is a great way to keep your belongings safe when you don’t need them but still having to access them at your own time. Here are some reasons why self-storage is a must for students. 


Safe & Secure Storage For Your Belongings

When you go home at the end of the term, rather than moving everything back home with you, a safe and secure self-storage container is a much more effective solution. Leaving your belongings in a secure self-storage container means you can rest easy, knowing that they’ll be in safe hands. When you do need to collect your items, they’ll be in exactly the same condition as when you left them. We recommend always selecting a local storage company with ample security measures to give you peace of mind. At Charles Wood, our storage solutions are monitored 24/7 by CCTV to make sure that your belongings are safe and protected. 


A Cost-Effective Solution

It can be quite costly, lugging your belongings around with you every time you go back home, especially if you have a lot of items. It can also be expensive for students to rent over the summer holiday period, and some tenancies don’t allow you to keep your belongings there during the holidays. Self-storage solutions are considerably cheaper than the alternative options out there.

Self-storage can be a lifesaver if you’re looking at taking a gap year, rather than have to figure out how you’re going to transport your belongings home, you can put them in a secure self-storage facility and retrieve them when you’re back at university. 


Extra Space for Your Hobby or Activities

You might have taken up a new hobby, or joined the canoeing team, but as student accommodation is notoriously small, where do you store all this equipment? It’s probably going to be a bit of a squeeze to fit your canoe or kayak in your accommodation. This is where self-storage comes in handy, you can store your gear and equipment away and take it out as and when you need it, rather than have your canoe sat in your kitchen.
