What Items Can I Store?

There is no real limit to the type of items that you can store as long as they are non-hazardous items and aren’t flammable.  You are able to store single items to a full content of a room within our storage units and we have a range of different storage sizes available.  Typical items that students tend to store with us include motorbikes, wardrobes, excess clothes and much more.  You will have 24-hour access to all your items, 365 days a year, using your own unique PIN code that our team will set you up with.

As well as providing convenient and flexible storage units, we also supply all relevant packing materials and boxes for you as part of the service.  You can be sure that sentimental items such as photos frames or smaller furniture items will be kept neat, tidy and secure without our compound at all times.  For more information or to discuss your requirements for your storage needs, get in touch with us today by calling us directly or use our contact form.

Our student self storage units are also extremely beneficial for international students that do a lot more travelling than the average citizen within the UK.  We offer both short-term and long-term storage solutions for international students that may need their own storage unit for a few years at the least, we are more than happy to accommodate this.

How Much Self Storage Space Does A Student Need?

The more storage used, the larger the cost, so don’t pay over the odds and get a self-storage unit based on what you need. Try our new space calculator to see how much each of our units holds. If you’re not sure then please do pick up the phone or even arrange to pop down and we can show you around the facilities.

If it’s mainly luggage you are looking to store then a 10 sq ft unit should fit. If you are looking for contents of a studio flat with some furniture will obviously need a larger storage unit size. Live chat with us on the red button at the bottom of the page if you have any queries.

No Hidden Extras

The price we quote is the price you are charged for your storage unit, the only thing you need to budget for is insurance. We can offer a Sun Alliance “new for old” policy at £3.50 per £1000 worth of goods per month.
