Escaping For Summer But What To Do With Your Stuff?!

Students Packing

School’s out – and so are you. Whether that’s home for the holidays or off on a summer-long adventure. But what about all that stuff you feel like you just moved into your student halls or university accommodation?

If lugging all of your worldly possessions home only to bring them back again in September sounds like a drain on your summer schedule and your budget, then a student self storage package could be the perfect solution.

How To Find The Best Deal On Student Storage

Make sure you shop around for the best deal. When we say ‘all-inclusive’ we mean just that. Look for a student storage package than can be tailored to your exact requirements so you only pay for as much or as little space as you need. Here’s the rundown of what to look for in a great student storage plan.


Look For A Flexible Student Storage Plan

Summers are made for escaping! Take a break from uni life and relax for those precious weeks without worrying if your personal valuables, important projects or essential course notes are in safe hands. Look for a student storage package that is totally flexible, so that even if you book an all-inclusive deal, you have the option to extend your lease if you need to.

Want to store your stuff, but not sure you have enough to justify a unit? We’re happy for you to go in with friends and hire a storage unit together. Sharing a unit is super low-cost and will save you money on transporting your stuff home or forking out for excess baggage fees when travelling.


Is Fully Comp Storage Insurance Included In The Price?

Random laptop failure only ever occurs when you’re working on that nightmare essay… that you haven’t saved. Although we don’t advocate crying over spilt milk, we do recommend insuring your property and important documents for complete protection whilst in storage.

That’s why student storage in Edinburgh comes with fully comprehensive storage insurance, covering everything from books and duvets to your entire student room. Reputable storage companies will be able to to offer you insurance options but make sure they can provide a level of cover that suits you.


Ask For Travel And Transport Recommendations

Time flies when you’re having fun. We all remember when 6 weeks felt like a lifetime, but as we get older the summer break goes by in a flash. Moving day often follows soon after your last exam, when you’re head is already in holiday-mode – so time is of the essence.

Ask your storage facility team if they can recommend a removal or transport firm that they trust. This will save you the headache of researching, pricing and then organising a removal company or individual to move your important possessions.


Using Your Student Discount On Packaging Materials

You may be able to get a student discount on packaging materials, too, when you book student storage in Edinburgh. Our exclusive Student Pack includes heavy duty storage boxes, packaging tape and a dust cover all for just £25.00! Available to buy online for zero hassle packing.
