Summer is supposed to be a college student’s chance at respite. Instead, it’s punctuated by the stress and labor that accompany moving in and out, every single year.
At the end of each spring semester, thousands of dorm-residing college students across America arduously cram the contents of their room into their car for the long haul home. Some will be forced to rent trucks or trailers; others will have to throw away things that don’t fit. Only three months later, they’ll be forced to go through the exact same motions in reverse, lugging their couches, desks, chairs, TVs, computers and refrigerators back into the dorm.
Self-storage facilities are safe and secure places for students to keep their things over the summer. Many of these facilities are located just around the corner from campus, and most offer student discounts. In the summer months, students comprise a large percentage of the industry’s new tenants.
If you’re a college student thinking about using a self-storage unit near campus to house your things over the summer, here’s what you need to know before you begin your storage search:
