When you’re hitting the pause button on your everyday life to travel or take a gap year, you’ve got enough to think about without worrying about the belongings you’re leaving behind. That’s where we step in. No fluff, no fuss, just a straightforward way to keep your belongings safe with Kangaroo Self Storage.

So, before you jet off on your adventures, we thought we’d explain how our storage units are the perfect spaces for storing your items while you’re away. Read on to discover how our safe, secure, and spacious facilities keep your belongings safe until you land back in the UK.

Do I Need to Use Self-Storage While Travelling?

Heading off on an extended holiday or braving a gap year? You may be mulling over what to do with your stuff while you’re out soaking up new experiences. Let’s walk through why self-storage is a no-brainer for travellers like you.

Clearing Your Home to Rent While You’re Away?

If you’re planning on travelling for an extended period, you may want to cash in on your empty home and rent it out while you’re gone. If you’re renting to a friend or family member, you’ll most likely want to clear some of your furniture out so they can move their own belongings in – but where do your things go? Well, whether it’s the sofa from your living room, your kitchen appliances, or your collection of winter woollies from your wardrobe, self-storage locks down a secure spot for all your possessions so your tenants have plenty of room for their belongings.

Handing Over Your Keys?

Shifting to a ‘no fixed abode’ status for a bit? If you’re moving abroad and dropping your lease or handing over the keys to someone else, self-storage is your wallet-friendly best friend. Instead of coughing up rent for space you’re not even using, stash your items with us and use that cash for your travels instead; it’s simple!

Want to Keep Valuables Safe?

As well as any bulky items you might want to store while you’re gone, we can also keep your valuable and personal items safe. We understand you may not want to take precious jewellery, all your important documents, or other personal items on your travels, but leaving them behind may be risky, especially if you live in a shared house or you’re renting your space. So, you guessed it, self-storage is the answer to this, too! Our storage units come in a range of sizes, starting at 16 Ft2 (1.5 m2), so you can keep smaller items safe until you return.

Student Storage for Gap Year Adventures

As a student, taking a gap year should be about freedom and experiences, not fretting over your belongings. So, at Kangaroo Self-Storage, we’ve got your back with straightforward, secure, and affordable student holiday storage solutions that are:

  • Secure. Let’s face it, leaving your items in student digs can be risky as there’s often a revolving door of people, and security can be iffy. With our student storage units, your things are protected with round-the-clock security.
  • Conveniently Located. Our facilities are a stone’s throw from your uni. Whether you’re in Scotland or the North West of England, you can stash your stuff and jet off without a lengthy trek to store your things.
  • Easy on the Wallet. Every penny counts when you’re a student, right? Our self-storage doesn’t break the bank. It’s priced just right for tight student budgets, making it a no-brainer for gap year storage.
  • Better When Shared. Got mates in the same boat? Pool your belongings in one storage unit. It’s not only a smart move to keep your friendship strong, but your wallets will thank you, too.

How Can Self-Storage Help Me When I Return Home?

While you may not want to be thinking about this before you go, it’s a good idea to plan how you can continue using your storage unit when you land back home. Well, with our affordable and flexible storage options, you can take your time resettling without the clutter.

Not sure where to stash that bulky snowboard or camping gear? Brought back a whole new wardrobe? Our units are perfect for keeping your seasonal travel items (from heavy coats and boots to wetsuits and swim gear) tucked away until your next adventure. It’s easy storage at a price that won’t derail your post-holiday budget. Unpack at your own pace, with us keeping your belongings safe and sound.
