Why College Students Value Self Storage Units

College students are notorious for their uncanny ability to acquire vast amounts of “stuff” in their doom rooms and apartments. When they move back to their parent’s home for the summer, or graduate into a new home, some of the belongings they have accumulated may not fit or be welcome. That is why every college student (and parents of college students!), should consider self storage as a way to ensure the safe storage of their student’s stuff.

Self Storage for Students:

Are you looking for somewhere to store all the collegiate memorabilia you’ve accumulated over the past year? Perhaps your parents won’t appreciate or allow some of your coveted college “decorations”? Self storage provides the perfect solution. With self storage, your parents don’t even have to know what sort of collections you’ve accumulated–in fact, no one does. Part of the security of self storage units is that you are the only person who has a key. So you and you alone, control who has access to your belongings.

Are you thinking of traveling for a semester abroad? A self storage unit provides a great alternative to moving everything back home. Simply store your items at a storage facility near campus and when you come back from traveling, you’ll have everything you need to re-establish your college home. The beauty of a storage unit is it provides an excellent option to keep your things safe and secure–allowing you to travel and explore the world without worrying about whether your parents are ‘helping you’ get organized by throwing away a bunch of your things.

Self storage is not just for your school’s summer and winter breaks. Many students securing jobs out-of-town after college are faced with the prospect of having to throw out many of their prized collegiate possessions because of apartment size and storage restrictions. Securing your belongings in your own self storage unit is the perfect way to keep your things out of sight if you cannot bear to part with your collection of memorabilia. When the summer is over, or you finally can afford that big apartment, you can pick up your things from the self storage facility and bring them home to enjoy.

Self Storage for Parents:

Your home is your haven and having a college student at home for the summer can definitely create a little chaos. Add boxes of school stuff’ that litter his/her room or worse your prized garage, closet or attic space–and you’re organized home just got a little “unlivable.”

Using a self storage unit to keep these items close to school (and out of your house!) is a great way to save your own home’s organization, while allowing your student to keep his/her belongings and save the effort of lugging all that stuff home! It also gives your student the opportunity to assume some responsibility. He/she will be responsible for moving in and out of the unit–and while the items are stored, he/she will be the only one with the key to his storage unit. Giving your child the responsibility to store his valuables while away at college is good ‘training’ as a future homeowner.

Self storage is the perfect solution for both parents and college students. Self storage units provide a safe, secure, and affordable way to store every valuable belonging–even when it’s that famous bottle cap collection.
