As a student, there may come a time when you look around you and realise you need to act. There is stuff everywhere and you know it can't go on.  You can't see your desk, let alone your chair - you need space to study.  After-all, that's why you're at Uni - right? Take a look below at the top 5 reasons why students need a storage space.

  1. You've Run Out Of Space

Tired of stepping over everything in your room?  Finding it impossible to have your friends in for a drink before you go out?

If your wardrobe is crammed to bursting and there's no room on top of it - nor under the bed - you need to make some space.  Self storage will let you make room for what you really need and help you declutter your space.  It will also help you declutter your mind too.  What's more, it's cost effective.

2. You Don't Want to Keep Moving Your Belongings Around

If you're coming back to Uni or College next academic year, why lug your belongings all the way home?

Not only will it make life easier to keep your belongings in storage - but your parents will probably appreciate it too.  This way, you know your stuff is all in one place - safe and sound.  And your parents keep the spare room, or garage as it ought to be - free from all your belongings.

Get your stuff into storage over the holidays and pick it up at the start of the next academic year.  Or arrange for us to drop it off when you know where you'll be staying.

3. You Need Space For Your Hobby

Be it painting, rock climbing or water sports - you need space to keep all the equipment that goes with your hobby.  Sure, getting into water sports sounded like a great idea at the time.  But now you're stuck with a canoe in your room.  Not good.

If your room is too small for all that equipment (and, let's face it, it probably will be), you can still enjoy your favourite activities by renting a storage unit and keeping your kit there.  We're open seven days, so your kit is as accessible as it needs to be.

4. You're Afraid of 'Sticky Fingers'

Sharing a room can be a challenge sometimes.  You may luck out and room with the best people you've ever met - or maybe not.  If you've got the type of roomie who thinks it's OK to borrow whatever they like, whenever they like - then think about term time storage.  Consider moving important or valuable possessions into storage - you'll have peace of mind knowing that they're safe and ready for you at all times.

5. You're Running An Ebay Business

If you're moonlighting as an Ebay or Etsy seller - or running any type of business for that matter - you need to keep all your merchandise safe and secure and in pristine condition.
