How to Store Term Time Possessions During the Summer for Students

May 19. 2022

The end of the summer term is on the horizon and another year of academic study drawers to a close. For some students this will mean the opportunity to spend the summer travelling before their studies commence again in September. Equally, for international students the summer may see them travel overseas to return home. If you’ve been residing in university halls of residence then you’ll most likely need to vacate your room at the end of the term. If you’ve been living in rented accommodation, the tenancy is also likely to have come to an end. Either way you’ll need somewhere to store your possessions. For UK-based students it is often feasible to store the items at their home address, whereas for international students it can be very costly and troublesome to send the possessions home and then have them re-sent back to the UK at the start of the next academic term.

The alternative to this is to store the possessions in a self storage room for the summer. All universities will have self storage facilities in close proximity to them. There will be a few considerations that you’ll want to take into account, such as- the safety of your goods. For example, here in Wolverhampton Burke Bros Moving Group self storage facility benefits from CCTV and high perimeter fencing and each room has an individual padlock. You’ll also want to factor in the cost of storing your goods over the summer. This is where self storage is really beneficial as most facilities, like the Burke Bros self storage in Wolverhampton, have a range of rooms of different sizes. This means that you can select the most suitable size and not have to pay for a room that is significantly larger than you actually need. A useful method for making further savings is also to consider sharing a room with friends and splitting the costs amongst you.

Most facilities also provide packing materials on site for you to purchase to pack your items with. The added advantage of this, is that, like Burke Bros self storage- the packing materials will be of a professional grade.
