Student accommodation is not renowned for having masses of space – or being very flexible when it comes to dates you can move in, or need to move out.
At McCarthy’s Storage World we have lots of student customers, who use us for lots of different reasons. With prices starting from £6 a week, it’s really just the equivalent of one or two drinks on a night out (depending on whether you’re a fan of fizz or more a half a pint of lager drinker!)
So why might you need student storage? Maybe your halls kick you out over the holidays, and it’s logistically difficult to keep moving things back and forwards from home? Maybe you want to go travelling, and need somewhere safe to keep your belongings while you’re gone? Or maybe your student digs really do have zero space, and you just need somewhere to keep some of your bits and pieces?
On that last point, there are some simple ways you can try and create extra storage in even a small bedroom. Here’s some top tips from McCarthy’s:
But if you really don’t have the space, or you need to clear out for the holidays, give us a call to find out more about our storage solutions. Students can share storage units, making it even more affordable, and we only charge until the day you move out – so there’s no wastage (after all, it may only be the equivalent of a drink, but it’s a drink nonetheless!). We’ll even promise to price match any like for like quotation from another SSA member.
We’ve now got self storage centres in Leeds, Wakefield and Harrogate, so we’re handy for lots of universities and colleges. In Leeds we’re in walking distance from the centre for a lot of the Halls of Residence, or an easy bus journey away. And don’t forget we can help with van hire if needed.
I’ve been using McCarthy’s for a long time now, and am more than happy with my storage unit. The units are very accessible and always clean and tidy. The helpful staff are always on hand if you need any assistance. Wendi in particular has been a pleasure to deal with and extremely efficient.
Their service was above and beyond as Wendi and her husband drove to the York site on Sunday afternoon to accommodated my son with his storage room as we were traveling from Glasgow to South Wales via York to drop off his belongings for university.
We had the packing and moving service, they were very professional, polite and did a great job. They didn't just put everything in the boxes they held back things like filler or legal documents in case we might need them. There was also a delay in getting into the new house and they were very patient and didn't complain. Made things a huge amount less stressful for us. I would highly recommend.
