Student Storage: Class 101

Ah the college days where you live with the basic things in life and sharing is literally caring for all of us. When you move out of your house to study in a new state, new city or even new country, there is an instant culture shock. There are no parents helping you out, a course meal is just a notion and you will need to take 6 am cold baths to make it for your lecture. There’s more! You are pushed into small dorm rooms where you will share space with another student.

It is a fact that there’s almost no way that everything a college student wants or needs to have will fit in their tiny room. That’s why the know-how of utlising your space is essential. Check out a few tricks and tips for how to store some of your most important stuff.

Storage for you

Proximity is the name of the game. Yes, finding the right storage facility is very important. The shortest journey from your dorm to the facility is ideal. The right storage facility will also offer the storage size that you need for the right price. Please remember to do your research thoroughly; sit with your options and pick the right one before you make your decision.

Pack attack

Work smarter not harder. So with that mantra remember to “pack smart.” Make sure that when you pack, you pack in a very orderly manner so you find it easy to move stuff around. Some tips include packing books i.e. (study material, stationery et al) in smaller boxes; your heavy clothes (like jackets, blankets and bedspreads will go into another set of boxes; you could also double up fragile items wrap in clothes) to prevent chips.

Rotation wise

Do not take rented space for granted or rather do not be abusive to empty space. Adopt a rotation policy when storing goods. Let us expand on that point. Store wisely. Because you know you’ve space for fill all your excess goods, you’ll be amazed how quickly a storage space will fill up. Remember to pack your boxes along the wall, creating a path for you to safely and freely move about. You can get in and get out in no time.

Security

Before you choose your storage facility, it is best if you can do a quick tour of the facility. This step is very important. You are placing your precious goods into someone else’s hands. You have the right to check the security options at the facility. Make sure you pick a facility that protects your belongings.

Label loving

Go label crazy with every box packed by you. This will help you and the storage facility workers to help you quickly remove the boxes and save on time. That’s why we recommend that you label everything. Use a permanent marker and make use of old printed sheets of your study material. Write down all the things you have placed in that.
