WHY STUDENTS SHOULD USE SELF-STORAGE

By 25th May 2021June 3rd, 2021No Comments

STUDENTS SHOULD BE ENJOYING THE BEST YEARS OF YOUR LIFE. WHETHER THIS IS IN STUDENT ACCOMMODATION, DURING YOUR HOLIDAYS OR WHILST YOU RE ON THE ROAD, SELF-STORAGE IS A FANTASTIC OPTION FOR ALL STUDENTS. THERE ARE SEVERAL REASONS STUDENTS SHOULD USE SELF-STORAGE AND WE ALWAYS HAVE THE NECESSARY SPACE AVAILABLE!

Gilmorton Storage have containerised and self-storage units available for all clients throughout Leicestershire. We can always discuss your storage requirements and ensure there is enough space available.

LACK OF ACCOMMODATION SPACE

Moving to a new location is fantastic. As a student, you may be very excited to get away from your home and spend time away. However, you can t always take all the items you would like and sharing accommodation with several other people may not always be easy, especially if you don t get along. If you begin to run out of space within your accommodation, containerised and self-storage could be your best solution.

Self-storage will allow students to keep all items close when you move into your own accommodation. No matter what you would like to take with you, space will always be available, ensuring nothing is left behind.

MOVING HOME IS A DIFFICULT PROCESS FOR EVERYONE AND HAVING EXTRA SPACE TO USE BEFORE AND DURING YOUR STAY AT A NEW ACCOMMODATION IS A MASSIVE BENEFIT FOR ALL STUDENTS. YOU CAN CONTINUE TO ADD TO ALL STORAGE UNITS, ENSURING THERE IS SPACE FOR ANY ITEM.

STUDENT SECURITY

In a new city, security can be a real problem and something that could make you nervous. If you are moving a lot of possessions over, it s important you keep each item secure. Self-storage facilities always have the highest level of security and ensure all possessions are protected.

Additionally, living in a new house with a lot of new flatmates, some students will always take more precautions than others. If you are worried about any of your belongings, using self-storage will ensure items cannot be damaged or stolen.

TRANSPORT TIME

Moving all your items at once can be a big hassle and using self-storage during your moving period can help make this much less stressful. Whether you decide to move everything into storage at once, or stagger your moving, the choice is yours, but storage will always make this process easier.

By having all possessions in storage nearby, when you finally move to your accommodation, all your items will be easily transferable. Some items can remain in your storage unit, but you will always have the choice to switch between storage and accommodation.

COST SOLUTION

Finding extra space as a student is no easy feat and the cost of larger accommodations can often be too overwhelming for many young people. Self-storage solutions offer a much more attainable price, whilst still delivering quality storage space for your items.

In addition to this, you can always hire the storage space necessary for your needs. Whether you need to hire additional storage units or you are happy with minimal space, our flexible contracts mean you can always adjust the space you have available.

ENJOY HOBBIES & WORK

Carrying on with previous hobbies and safely storing project work as a student can be slightly difficult. If you no longer have the gear required to enjoy hobbies such as painting or outdoor activities, it is unlikely you will continue doing them. By keeping this gear close by in storage containers, it is always available for you to use at any point.

Additionally, the more work you complete as a student, the less space you will have in your accommodation. Storage units ensure you can safely tuck away your latest project, without having to use up your living space.
