If you are a current college student, you might not see the immediate need in renting a storage unit. You may think storage units are just for people who are moving homes or for people who need a place to park their boat in the winter. However, students have just as much of a need for storage units! Here’s why:
As a student, you most likely live in a campus dorm or campus - owned apartment. If you are lucky, the school might let you homestead, aka leave your belongings in your space over the summer. However, most campuses force you to move your stuff out at the end of the term and move it all back in again when a new year starts.
At first, this might not seem like a huge deal. However, take a moment to consider just how much stuff you bring into your living space throughout the school year. Every time you go to Target, Walmart, Walgreens, or Publix, you are probably bringing more and more stuff into your dorm or apartment. Not to mention, you may even have your own furniture on campus! All this can add up to a large collection of stuff to move out at the end of the year.
So, where does all this stuff go? Chances are, you definitely do not have room at your family home to store all your college belongings. And, if you live out of state, you might have an even bigger problem; You can’t take your furniture, books, technology, toiletries, cleaning supplies, and bedding in an airplane!
This is why a storage unit is a perfect solution for college students. You can keep all of your stuff close to campus, safe under lock and key. And if you have any items you are concerned about getting hot, you can always opt for an air-conditioned unit. With a storage unit, all of your possessions will be safe for the summer, and you can enjoy your vacation free of stress.
If you are about to graduate college, storage units are a great way to safely store your stuff while you find a new job or a new house. Upon graduating, many people do not yet have a job or a new place to live. But you still have to move out of your college town or out of campus housing. What are you supposed to do with all of your belongings while you find your first job? A storage unit will keep all your stuff safe while you figure out your next steps. Then, when you are ready to move, all your things will be waiting for you- instead of getting heat damage in your parents’ garage.
With all of this in mind, here are some tips when it comes to renting a storage unit as a college student:
