May is a busy month for celebrations: Mother’s Day, Memorial Day and the end of the school year for college students. We’ve mentioned this before,  but self storage is a great option for college students going home for the summer or recent graduates who are not quite sure where the future will be taking them.

Each spring the college student has to pack up their dorm room or apartment. Over the course of the school year, the student has accumulated more and more “stuff”. Instead of packing items to go back home to take up space in a basement or garage; think about renting a self storage unit for the summer break. Most self storage facilities will offer month-to-month rentals that are perfect for college students in transition. Storing your personal belongings in a self storage unit gives you piece of mind that your belongings are safe and secure and ready to be used again when school starts up in the fall. In some cases, storing the items in self storage could be a much better solution for the student if they don’t have a way to transport their belongings back and forth from home to school.  If you look at the flip side, your parents might have turned your room into an office while you were away at school, leaving you only a small space to put your belongings. Your parents might need self storage as well. They need some place to put all of your old trophies, posters, toys and stuffed animals.

If you are a recent or soon-to-be college graduate:  Congratulations! The time right after graduation is a time of transition. If you are moving to a new city to start your first new job, it might be easier to store your items in a storage unit until you are able to find proper housing. Or you could have found a place to live, but it is not big enough to hold all of the items that you have accumulated over your college years. Self storage is a great option to store all of these extra items that won’t fit into your new studio apartment in the city. If you are moving home after college, you will need to share space in your old bedroom that your parents now turned into an office. You will find that you don’t have room for all of the items that you once had in your apartment.  Once again, renting a self storage unit would be the best option to safely store your items.
