With the Christmas break approaching fast, Bournemouth is likely to lose a great deal of its young, lively and most certainly messier population as thousands of university students in the area pack up and head home for the festivities. Your work is done for 2013 and celebrations are in order, but not before the long slog home with all your belongings. Not to worry, there are a number of ways that student storage can help you out:
Keep your valuables safe
Don’t want to leave your flat screen TV in the flat for fear of any number of mishaps? Need to stash your clothes, shoes or laptop? Storage space can ease a load from your mind, knowing all of your valuables are protected. You’re not limited to indoor valuables either. If you need somewhere to lock up your bicycle because you don’t fancy the 200 mile bike ride home, then keeping it in a self-storage facility means you’ve got access whenever you need it.
Keep your work organised
Many of you will have been hoarding paper, notes and scribbles from day one of university. Keep your stacks safe and sound in a storage unit to avoid that pre-exam panic when you require that extra bit of revision material. Storage facilities are also a great solution to keeping all of your projects, such as artwork, models or designs, especially if you’re not keen on carrying your painted masterpiece on the tube home.
Store your furniture
Some of you may even find that you have to move out of your accommodation entirely for the winter break. Not to worry; storage units are flexible and can be adapted to suit your every need. So if you need to temporarily move out and need somewhere to keep your wardrobe, desk or any other furniture, self-storage is the ideal solution. Size doesn’t matter; from cupboard to mattress, just about anything can be stored in self-storage.
Save on costs
If there’s a group of housemates or friends that need storage, why not partner up to split the costs of a storage unit? At Store & Secure, we offer a discounted rate for all students with a student or NUS card. We’ll even throw in £10 worth of free packaging materials if a fellow student refers you.
