Mistakes College Students Should Avoid When Renting Storage

Picking the Wrong Size Storage Unit for What You Are Storing

There are a few easy ways to ensure you rent the correct size storage unit. First, you can use our online storage calculator for an estimation. You can also call or stop by our office on North Meadow Lane to speak with a storage expert who can help you pick the right size and amenities for your items.

Hauling Extra Items Around in Storage

You are moving a lot during this stage of life. You move away from home, into a dorm, then into an apartment, and maybe even a different one or two after that before moving from school. Simplify your packing and moving processes by consolidating your load only to items that you still use or have sentimental value. You can go through your items before packing them into storage and sell or donate them.

Taking an Unorganized Approach

When some items are home, some are at your school apartment, and others are in storage, it gets tricky very quickly trying to remember which objects are where. A simple list or spreadsheet is all you need as a quick reference to find specific items and stay organized.
