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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
