I know, I know, over the years you’ve accumulated things that you didn’t have when you first started going to school. Even if this was your first year, I KNOW for a fact that you’ve acquired something you didn’t own in September. This is the beginning my friend. It just continues forever from here.
So now that we’ve acknowledged that many of you have collected things that you now don’t have room for, either in your dorm room or the revolving door of apartments that you will occupy, or at your parents’ house. The question is where are you going to put it? Storing things at Mom and Dad’s house can be helpful for short periods of time, but you know if you leave your stuff there, at some point its going to be examined. Do your belongings deserve that kind of scrutiny or possible destruction? Do they deserve to be banished away in the attic? Or what if your parents simply cant take anymore and decide to refuse refuge to your acquired things. Gasp. You need storage my friend. Planet Storage!
Self Storage Is A Year-Round Solution For College Students
While self storage sounds like an expensive remedy, its actually not. Firstly, many self storage places offer discounts to students, and offer move-in specials, and specials for signing longer leases. Planet Storage offers all of these. Secondly, consider the cost of replacing those items you’ve acquired that are large or bulky. Furniture and other collectibles gathered throughout the course of a college career can add up quickly if it has to be constantly bought and bought again the following year. When students return home for the summer, these items have to be left in dorms or apartments, sold, given away, packed up and taken to wherever home is for the summer, and the list goes on. Planet Storage, and many other facilities, offer year-round climate controlled units that are great for storing furniture during summer break or in between dwellings. Self storages are also a wonderful way to save things that you might want to keep past college days.
Self Storage Is Great For Parents Too
Using self storage is also a great way for parents to store college-age kids’ belongings. My Parents were crazy. The minute I left for school, they turned my bedroom into an office. They moved all my stuff into storage until closer to the summertime. When I came home for the summer the office equipment was put into storage until I left again. Anyway, at least my stuff was cared for and protected while I was gone, and it gave my parents the ability to utilize the vacant space left behind. I’m glad they did it. It gave my Dad something to do so he wouldn’t drive my Mother bananas.
So Students (and Parents), make sure you keep those items you’ve acquired in a safe and accessible place. Come visit us at Planet Storage in the Junction. We’ll take care of you…and your things.
