But at Boylin’s Self Store we want to make sure your move this summer is a stress free as possible.

There are many more ways a self storage unit can benefit you as a student; if you are intrigued, read this article.

No matter whether you’re looking to store a few boxes over summer, or your entire room for a year abroad, Boylin’s Self Store guarantees to have a storage solution for you.

Benefits of Self Storage for students:

Security and Safety

By placing your items in self storage over the summer you are guaranteeing their safety. Whereas if you pack up all your belongings haphazardly and lug them all the way to your family home for the summer, many items are bound to get lost in the process.

By boxing everything up and organising them in a self storage unit for the summer they will be safe and sound until you need them again in the autumn.

Indeed, by renting a self storage unit you have guaranteed security from theft as every single one of Boylin’s Self Store storage containers are wind and water tight as well as completely secure. All of our sites benefit from state-of-the-art CCTV and barrier controls which are only accessible through individual key or fob.

This is a worthy investment even during term time as your student property, in student areas which are more likely to be targeted by thieves, may not benefit from these extra security precautions, therefore it’s a good idea to keep some of your most valuable items safe and sound in secure self-storage unit.

Moreover, there’s no denying that having roommates can be challenging sometimes. You might get lucky and live with lovely friends, or you might find yourself not really trusting the people you’ve been assigned to live with.

If this is you and you have a lot of valuable stuff, self-storage is a great way to keep everything safe and away from prying eyes at all times, but easy for you to get to. It just gives you some peace of mind knowing that your prized possessions are safe at all times.

Extra Space

When you go to university, you start to find out who you really are. That means trying out lots of new things, joining societies and getting into new hobbies that you’d never thought of before. And some of those can take up a lot of space.

So, while taking up canoeing or drumming might have seemed great at the time, you don’t want to be stuck with a canoe or drum kit in your dinky Uni room for the next year.

A self-storage space is a cheap and easy way to store all of your bits and bobs for new hobbies out of the way, where they will be safe and easy to get to when you need them.

Moreover, it’s inevitable that all students accumulate more and more stuff every year, and while it might all fit into the various areas of the student house, it becomes more of an issue when trying to cram it all back into a childhood bedroom for the summer.

Self-storage allows students to pack up a lot of the bits they won’t need over the summer (like kitchen equipment) just once, and leave it in a storage area until they move into a new house.

So now, only the essentials come home for the summer, not the whole house.

At Boylin’s Self Store we believe that you should not have to sacrifice your treasured items because you are in a small student property. Therefore we provide affordable, accessible, hassle free self-storage for you to store your spare, beloved items that will not fit in your home right now.

Relax this summer!

Stress Free Summer

Moving is always stressful, it’s just a fact of the matter. But it’s even more stressful the more often you do it. And for students, you are often forced to move every summer for 3 years between properties.

Unsurprisingly, most people wouldn’t want to move all of their worldly belongings back a forth so many times (after all, Uni students essentially move twice a year, from accommodation to home, and home to new accommodation).

Self-storage space limits the number of trips back and forth you need to make, and means you don’t need to try and cart all of that stuff between cities – it can just stay in the Uni town/city in a safe unit until you’re ready to move again.

So, you can get on with enjoying a summer of student fun in the sun and leave the stress behind.

Prevent Wear and Tear

By placing your belongings in self storage rather than carting them all back and forth between home and uni, you will prevent wear and tear. When you shove everything you own into boxes and cram them into your parents car over and over, they are bound to get rattled about, squished and damaged.

To protect your precious things from this fate, carefully pack them up and place them in self storage until you need them or have space for them to give them longevity and keep them safe.

Study Abroad or take a year out and travel.

Year Abroad is within Your Reach

A year abroad is such a wonderful and exciting opportunity for students but the logistics can sometimes hold you back.

Where will I store all my things while I’m away? Don’t you worry, Boylin’s Self Store is here to make sure your travel dreams come true. You can store as much or as little with us as we have flexible leases for a variety of sized containers. So, if you need to store a few boxes or an entire room or house worth of belongings we have a storage solution for you.

We don’t want storage logistics to get in the way of a once in a life time opportunity. Spread your wings and fly, don’t be tied down by possession stress.

Perfect Solution for After Graduation

Self storage is the perfect solution for after graduation as many students are unsure of what they want to do next, many move home or have an impermanent address or a short lease for a good few months.

This can be stressful when you have all your worldly processions in tow. Therefore, best to keep your belongings in a safe, stable location such as a self storage unit until you have a home of your own to fill with your items.

By storing your belongings in a self storage unit, you will have a haven of stability and consistency as many of your belongings will stay put in, safe and sound in a central and accessible location offering you constancy while your life is chaotically up in the air during several consecutive moves.
