"Let Our Family Move Your Family"

College is a time of great change and new beginnings. For many students, it also means moving away from home for the first time. While this can be an exciting experience, it also comes with its share of challenges. One of the most daunting tasks can be finding a place to store your belongings during the move when the space at home isn't available.

Thanks to advances in technology, most students have been able to consolidate many important documents and articles of importance into various digital storage methods and devices. However,  most students still have furniture, clothes, and other important items that need a physical space to reside when they're between cities and transitioning into a new lifestyle. 

College dorms and apartments can only hold so many items.  In many cases, the student will even be responsible for storing their belongings during semester breaks.  

Most of the time, college students will move out of state or even overseas for school. Having a place to keep their belongings without burdening any family members or friends provides much needed peace of mind for students when navigating life with new independence.

Short Term or Long Term

Luckily, there are many storage options available for college students. The first decision to make is whether you need short-term or long-term storage. If you only need storage for a month or two, your best bet is a student storage locker. However, if  you are gone for the summer or longer, it is typically more economical to rent a small storage unit.

Reasons Why College Students Should Rent Storage

Starting this new chapter of life can be exciting and overwhelming, and it's often a challenge to overcome certain logistics when there's a lot going on.  There are various points to consider when planning a move for college and deciding on whether or not to rent storage.

Convenience of Moving

One of the benefits of having a storage unit is that you can keep your belongings in one place and have access to them whenever you need them. This is especially helpful if you are attending college out of state or plan to study abroad. You can take all of your things with you or store them while you're away; whatever it is that you need, you will have access to your items anytime.

Not sure which stuff to bring? You can even leave some items in storage temporarily until you've decided what to do with them or whether or not to sell them. 

And, if you're still undecided about attending school, a student storage space is a good option for having extra space while saving money for your new life on your own. Student storage can also come in handy if you have to delay moving into your dorm room until the second semester because there was a space issue.

Protect Your Items

Most importantly, your items such as computers, gaming systems, and important appliances or furniture will be safe and secure in your student storage space. Many storage facilities have top of the line security features, so you don't have to worry about your stuff while you're away. And, if you're storing furniture or other large items, there may also be insurance coverage in case something happens to them while they're in storage. 

Sizing Options

There are many different sizes of student storage spaces you can rent.  You'll want to read all the details on each space - our space coast  and treasure coast storage facilities will provide you with the best size of storage to suit your needs.

While it can be tempting to put as much as you can into storage in order to save more money, there needs to be great caution when overstuffing your student storage unit.  Items in a space that's packed too tightly will be more susceptible to damage. Furthermore, you can cause injury and harm to yourself if you're trying to stack furniture or various items one on top of the other.

Prevent Wear & Tear

Over time, items stored in a basement or attic can be susceptible to damage caused by insects or dust. If you're not careful, your clothes, furniture and other belongings can quickly become ruined. A storage space in our secure facility can help to prevent this type of damage from occurring.

Have Space After Graduation

Having a secure storage space doesn't end when you're done with school.  A lot of times, graduates or people transitioning out of school will have to store their belongings for an extended period of time until they find a permanent place to live. Having your own space for your important items while you're figuring out your next move is one less thing to worry about when going to bed at night.

Independence and Privacy

Possibly the most important thing for students preparing for their own lives is having independence. Being your own independent person also means wanting your own privacy.  Storage space can give you that privacy by keeping your belongings tucked away neatly and securely. You'll never have to worry about others stumbling upon your personal things or feeling like you're living in a mess.
