Do you have a student away at school that needs some extra storage space? Or is your student in need of a short term storage solution in between semesters or while studying abroad? Self-storage units are a great solution to short and long term storage needs and offer a variety of sizes and flexible terms, including month to month. Usually students are somewhat constricted in regard to the amount of space they have for necessary items not to mention any extra space to be able to store additional things. It would be very helpful to be able to store non-crucial items in a nearby self-storage unit and allow them to utilize their living space to the best of their ability.

There will most likely be some storage facility options within close proximity to the college. If there is another student who also needs to utilize temporary storage it may be worth it to look into sharing a unit and the expenses.

Follow these suggestions for smooth decision making and creating a plan:

• Locate the closest facility
• Check for discounts offered for students
• Choose the best size to meet the storage needs
• Schedule and reserve a unit
• Look for storage tips
• Plan ahead and pack efficiently
• Place need to access items closest to the entry

It will be a major decision to choose a standard self-storage unit or a facility that offers climate control units. The length of time the storage unit will be utilized as well as the time of year will be factors in establishing what option to choose for the unit. If the original time frame for having things in storage is extended then it may be necessary to check on the unit and decide if any changes need to be made. If the unit is being shared make sure that any possible changes are discussed and coordinated jointly.
