The summer holidays are usually a time for relaxation, travel, and visiting family. For students living away from home, however, the end of term also brings the challenge of what to do with personal belongings. Fortunately, help is on hand. We’re taking a look at why student self-storage from Store & Secure is the ideal solution for the summer holidays.

1. Less Luggage to Haul Around

One of the biggest benefits of student self-storage is the convenience of having less luggage to transport around with you. This can be especially beneficial for international students who may be travelling abroad over summer. Instead of travelling with heavy suitcases or paying exorbitant fees for extra baggage, you can safely store your possessions in a personal storage unit. When you return, your belongings will be ready and waiting.

2. Enhanced Security

Leaving belongings in shared accommodation over the summer can be risky. Student self-storage offers a secure alternative. With features like 24/7 surveillance, individual locks, and controlled access, our personal storage facilities at Store & Secure ensure that your items are kept safe and sound. This peace of mind can be invaluable, especially when you’re miles away from your university accommodation.

3. Reduced Stress for Parents

Parents often bear the brunt of the moving process, whether it’s driving a packed car across the country or worrying about where to store their children’s university or college gear. Taking out a student storage unit can ease this pressure. Parents can rest assured knowing their child’s belongings are in a safe, accessible place, reducing the stress and hassle associated with the end-of-year move.

4. Opportunity to Declutter

Using a personal storage unit over the summer gives students the chance to evaluate what they genuinely need. As you pack, you can decide what to keep, donate, and sell. This decluttering process can help in maintaining a more organised living space when you return to university.

5. Flexible Storage Options

At Store & Secure, we understand that every student’s needs are different. That’s why we offer flexible student storage options. You can choose from various unit sizes, ensuring you only pay for the space you need. Plus, with access available Monday through to Saturday, retrieving or adding items to your personal storage unit is convenient and straightforward!
