College Student Storage Tips

student storage tips, college, study

During college years, students are on the move – again and again.  “Where am I going to put all this stuff” during break or my year overseas? Here are our tips for self storage during university term and semester break.

Student Storage Tips

Students should look for a self storage facility that is close to their Victoria, BC campus. Along with proximity, it is important to ensure that the self storage facility should offer 7 days access, so that one can retrieve their items whenever they want.

Keep Your Stuff Safe

With Victoria’s high humidity, students need a place out of the rain and with reasonably low humidity. Otherwise, a books and electronics may be damaged by high humidity.

Use good quality strong boxes. Books are very heavy, so use only smaller boxes to pack.

Share to Save Money

Consider sharing a locker or storage unit with a friend and cut your costs. However, it is important to be very clear on who is paying and when.

Checkout our new student storage units available, smaller units for a much lower cost than normal!

Keep It Clean

Never store food and if you put a microwave in, clean it completely. Otherwise, ants, roaches and pests will be all over your stuff when you collect it back.

Keep a list of what they have packed in numbered boxes so if you want to retrieve just a few things, the “Search for the Lost Ark” won’t take too long.

Stop and Store Quadra is in Saanich and very close to UVIC and Camosun College. Customers have access 7 days a week. You can rent on-line on your phone and move yourself in.
