Why use a student storage service?

London students always tell us how small their room is or how little storage space they have in university halls. They also tell us that taking their personal belongings home every time term ends or when they are moving from student accommodation in halls to private accommodation at the end of each university year can be a huge pain on both the student and their parents who often have to lug larger items in a small car hundred of miles.

If you don’t want the hassle of carrying your belongings whilst worrying about resits or next years course then we can help. We have offered Student storage in London for many years and have helped London students store their personal goods while giving them the best advice to not only save them money but to make their lives easier too. We can help recommend how many boxes you need, how long you should store your goods, what items to bubble wrap, where to get free boxes, the best student storage packages and so on.

As one of London’s best storage companies, we can help store your goods and keep them safe while you return home to see your family and friends. And when you get back from your summer holidays or winter break your items will be as you left them, safe and secure. Most students who have come to us to use our storage facilities are worried about getting locked into long contracts and hidden costs. Other companies in London may not be as upfront

Thankfully at Urban Locker, we pride ourselves on being a reliable student storage company that has many storage options to fit all budgets.

Student storage London – Tips for moving to a London University

Moving to a London University can be a daunting place for some students, meeting people from all cultures and adjusting to university life, in general, can be tough for some, so having one thing less to worry about is always going to benefit you.

London student storage is affordable these days but there are still some things that you can do to minimise your London student storage costs.

London is an expensive place and whether you are in student accommodation provided by the university or in a private residence you often won’t have too much room. If you find your stuff is taking up too much space then you may want to hire a storage unit to store some of your least-used items.

More often than not though students choose our storage space because when they break up from the university at the end of the year they don’t want to move all of their larger items back to their home. If this sounds like you then you will be pleased to know that our storage boxes can be rented for just a few pounds per week. You can pay upfront if you are worried about budgeting.

What we always advise students is only to pack the essentials when moving to London as your accommodation will be small where ever you live. Not only does this stop your student accommodation from becoming cluttered but it also makes it easier for your parents/guardians or even yourself when you have to move back home.

If you do choose to store your items in a storage box then firstly make sure you rent off a reliable storage company and not one that doesn’t have CCTV and other security measures installed. You should also make sure you have the right packing materials for the job before you start putting your items into storage as you could damage them along the way especially if you have to rely on public transport.
