Why You Need Winter Storage

With about two months left of the semester, it’s definitely a good time to start thinking about storage during the winter break. Being a college student is stressful; with studying for finals and trying to figure out how you’re going back home for the Holidays, there’s not enough time to figure out what you’re going to do with your stuff over the break!

Leave it to the pros!

The good thing to remember is that there are places all over town to store your belongings during the break. But, how do you go about choosing a place? There’s a few things you might want to ask yourself before you decide on a storage provider.

  1. What do I need stored? Think about everything that you have and decide what you really need stored over the break and what you plan on taking back home with you. Things like the mini fridge you rented for the year, your bike you use to commute to class, or important books and school supplies can probably stay behind in storage.
  2. How much storage do I need? Don’t pay for space you don’t need. Some places charge by space or unit size, if you only plan to store a few boxes then there’s really no need to rent out an entire storage unit. Luckily, Collegiate offers storage by boxes. You can choose the size of box you need and the number of boxes. This option is perfect for those who don’t need much stored.
  3. Where do I get moving supplies? Many companies offer storage services, however customers are required to purchase moving supplies separate. Collegiate offers FREE boxes and packaging supplies, no need to go out and waste more time and money on anything else!
  4. How am I going to get all this stuff from point A – point B? You’re going to want to select a place that can pick up & deliver your items. This is especially important to those students who have a lot of boxes or heavy boxes that they can’t lift themselves. Remember – leave it to the pros, don’t attempt to lift a heavy box on your own. This can be very dangerous!
