However, lots of students have the same question…
Q. What should I do with my stuff during the uni holidays or when I'm between student houses?
A. The answer is simple - STORAGE!
Storage is the perfect solution to keep your belongings safe between terms and the ideal solution for overseas students who travel home in the holidays. Not only is it flexible with units to rent by the week, but it’s affordable too! What more could you want?
Here are our top storage hacks for students:
If you and a few friends all need to use storage, you are better off getting a unit together and splitting the costs this way. It becomes cheaper for all of you – However, only one of you will be allowed to be the named account holder so make sure it’s someone trustworthy!
Ease the Squeeze do student storage discounts* at our Exeter, Guildford & Edinburgh storage facilities, which makes the already affordable storage even cheaper for those at the University of Exeter, Surrey or Edinburgh - especially when splitting costs between friends (a coffee from Starbucks could be more expensive!)
Get an expert to quote on how much storage you actually need rather than guessing! There’s no point paying for lots of storage space when you may only need a small-sized storage unit.
If you choose to store your belongings, either by yourself or with your friends, you need to make a list of inventory. That way you know what is going into storage and what should come out when you are back to retrieve it. Keep the list someplace safe, on your phone or email so you don’t lose it.
Most students do not take their car with them when they go to university, so you may be wondering, how you will get everything in and out of storage? Well, unlike many of our competitors, Ease the Squeeze offers a collection and delivery service; all the heavy lifting will be done for you as your belongings will be picked up and delivered for you.
We hope these top student storage hacks help you out, especially if you are an international student - having storage will mean you don't have to keep shipping your belongings back home, so will save you lots of money!
