It’s that time of year again when university exams are all done, and students across the country can breath a big sigh of relief!
Now on to planning the fun stuff – summer vacation!
That means June is also a busy time of year for our self storage centres, as students make the wise choice to store their belongings, rather than trek them halfway across the country (or, indeed, world).
Some students might be planning a summer of travelling and adventure – or they may even be taking a gap year or year in industry. If that’s the case they’re likely to be moving out of accommodation at least temporarily. Rather than taking all their stuff home before they travel, self storage makes a lot more sense – keeping it in the place they’re studying makes for a much easier move back on their return!
Other students may be going home to find employment for the summer, before returning for further studying in the autumn. Student accommodation doesn’t always tie up in terms of dates – meaning you may get kicked out of halls before your rented house is available. Alternatively, you may not feel it’s secure leaving your belongings in an empty house, while everyone is away for the summer. Self storage can be an ideal, safe option.
Many universities have a large proportion of international students, who may travel home in the summer holidays. Taking everything they own via plane would likely prove impossible, so self storage can be a life saver in those situations!
Across our storage centres in Leeds, Harrogate and Wakefield, we can provide a range of unit sizes, meaning we can find one which exactly suits your needs. No point paying for more space than you need – or perhaps you could share with a flatmate? We know every penny counts, so we only charge for the time you need (to the day) and prices start from a very reasonable £6 a month.
All of the McCarthy’s self storage centres are easily accessible by car, on foot or by bus. Once on site, there’s ample parking and equipment such as lifts and trolleys to help you get everything you need to your unit as simply as possible. If you’ve got quite a bit to move, we can even help provide a man and van service to give you some extra lifting power!
Everything is kept safe and secure on site, monitored by CCTV and security. Entry to the storage centre is through a pin code and only you have the key or code to your individual unit – we can’t even get in without you! So, you can feel reassured that everything is being looked after. You can gain access when you need, not just in business hours, so there’s no reason to worry you won’t be able to get things back if you need them.
So, if student storage sounds like it might get an A+ from you – why not get in touch?
Fantastic service throughout. Timely and realistic quote; calm and efficient help through the process - no query or question was too much trouble. The moving crew were fabulous throughout; packing service highly recommended as it took the strain out leaving the old property. Cannot praise McCarthy's highly enough!
Tony was amazing he gave me such a lot of trust that my very expensive piano and painting would be extremely looked after and they were, the lovely lady on the phone who I booked through and the three removal guys, were absolutely professional amazing respectable and I was aware that they were constantly using hand gel et cetera. There is nothing missing and nothing damaged and I had about 200 boxes a lot of precious China crystal et cetera. I would 100% recommend this company after having around about seven different Removal Company quotes this was slightly more expensive, but worth every single penny as the saying goes, you get what you pay for This company went the extra mile for sure. If there is anyone with a disability who is reading this who is looking for a company you can trust, I would highly recommend these people
I had a lovely and easy experience. The staff were very friendly, in particular Emily and Collette. Both were extremely helpful and made the whole experience stress free. I would highly recommend this service!
