Solving University Student Stress with Self Storage

After attending University, you often wish you could go back and share some of the useful wisdom you've picked up to your fresher self. Unfortunately, that's not possible so we write to share our top tips with the next generation of university goers!

For many, university can be some of the best and formative years of growing up. Yet we all remember the challenges of preparing to make the journey into a new chapter of our lives, apprehensive at moving to a new place and the challenges that can bring.

Prices, packing, transport, and time being some of the concerns of students we spoke to.  

Thankfully, it doesn’t need to be this difficult.

Books, clothes, furniture, electronics, toiletries, food, kitchenware, bedding. Just a few items that get crammed into the car. Why make this initial journey uncomfortable? We can pick up all your belongings and pack them with no hassle and no stress. We can take these all to your new abode or store it over the summer and bring it on a day of your choosing. Whether it’s Nottingham or Newcastle no journey is too far.

Perhaps you’re already at university and want to make the move from one side of town to the other. I remember at the end of my first year at Leicester University moving from student halls to a house with friends. I had nowhere to store my belongings and had to bring them back on a journey even the Proclaimers would have gasped at. We can remove that trouble and store them over the summer and bring them on the day you arrive back meaning you can take the bus or train and earn a few brownie points with the parents!

You may think it would cost the earth for us to pick up, deliver, and store. Thankfully not. We get it. You want to spend money elsewhere and exorbitant prices (especially with recent inflation) are not what people need when money needs to go for rent, food, and simply having a good time.

Our low prices are affordable; whilst other companies may have hidden costs, we pride ourselves on keeping all costs to a minimum and being transparent, meaning you can have a few more lemonades at the students’ union…

Whether you are an undergraduate, postgraduate or a caring parent, give our friendly sales team a call on 0800 061 4091.
