4 Reasons College Students Should Rent a Storage Unit

With the end of the college semester right around the corner, you may be wondering what to do with all the stuff you accumulated in your dorm room or off-campus apartment. Bringing your stuff to and from your dorm at the beginning and end of a semester can be costly, time-consuming and stressful—for both students and parents. But there is a better way: Renting a storage unit with Secure Self Storage. Storing your items with us has a number of advantages:

  1. You Save Money.

    The cost of renting a moving truck to and from your home and paying for all of those miles adds up quickly. Rent a storage unit with a Secure Self Storage facility near campus and you are bound to save money: We provide a free truck for your move-in day and a month of free storage when you sign up.

  2. We Keep Your Stuff Safe.

    You might have the option of leaving your possessions in your room or apartment over the summer; but just because you can doesn’t mean you should. It’s very possible for your room to get broken into. On the other hand, Secure Self Storage’s units are equipped with 24/7 surveillance cameras and an alarm system, so you can be positive your items are kept safe. Climate-controlled facilities also keep sensitive items such as musical instruments, computer equipment and furniture in the condition you left them.

  3. You Save Space.

    A storage unit isn’t only great for moving, but for storing your stuff during the semester. Dorm rooms are small, and things can get cramped. Try storing items like extra books and off-season clothing to get some extra space in your cramped dorm room.

  4. We Keep Parents Happy.

    Chances are your parents would rather not pay for and drive an expensive moving truck, pack their car to the brim with your things—and keep them in their basement, garage or worse yet, in the living room. Stick with Secure Self Storage, and you can keep things simple and easy. It is a short ride to a facility, and we sell all the packing and moving items you need on site. Your parents will thank you (and us) later.

    Make the move to Secure Self Storage now, and you can get a month of storage for absolutely free. Find a location near you and call or stop by. Remember to ask one of our experienced professionals about how to get your free month of storage.
