3 reasons self-storage can benefit students

When the university year comes to an end, students flock in their droves to train stations carrying heavy suitcases filled to the brim with all of their belongings. They return just a few months later, carrying many of the same things to move back into their new accommodation. If this sounds like you, then it might be time to consider keeping your things in self-storage until you’re ready to collect them in the new academic year.

1. It lets you travel light

Instead of struggling on public transport with the total contents of your room over the previous year, you can pack just what you need for your life back home – nothing more. Using self-storage in Manchester will allow you to leave your bulkier items in the city until you return.

2. Saves unpacking (again)

Taking all of your belongings home means you’ll have to put them somewhere, or go through the process of unpacking them… only to have to pack, take it back up to your student accommodation the following academic year and unpack it all again! Putting it into storage simplifies things and ensures you’ll only have to pack and unpack once, saving you valuable time when moving into your new student digs.

3. Eases luggage worries for international students

Instead of paying through the nose to have all of your possessions flown back home with you, putting them in storage units can save you time, money and hassle. They’ll be waiting safely in your storage lockers on your return.

Storage World have a store just 1 mile away from the University of Manchester and 2 miles outside of Manchester Metropolitan Uni. Offering packaging materials and storage boxes, as well as a removals service to help you drop off and then collect your belongings, Storage World can give students a comprehensive package that solves all of their storage needs in between term-time.

Cheap storage units are also available from Storage World’s other centre in Middleton, which serves the wider area including Rochdale and Oldham.

Clean, safe and secure storage solution at an affordable price, highly recommend this place, very close to the heart of manchester, easy access in and out. Big thanks to Tricia and her team for sorting out my storage needs, very knowledgeable, professional and more importantly friendly.
Highly recommended.

A Quick and Easy Process

Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company

Same Day Move In

Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!

Extremely Helpful Staff

Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.

Trolleys and Good Lighting

Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.

100% recommend Storage World. The storage lockers are well priced, secure and very clean. The facility is well set up to make loading and unloading very straight forward. Jeni on the desk was so increddibly helpful and went out of her way to make sure we were well set up and happy. Thanks very much to all at Storage World and particularly Jeni!

Business Self Storage

Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
