Using Self Storage During A College Internship

Using Self Storage During A College Internship

By Stephanie Hyland, Storage.com

College is as full of new adventures as your car is on the day you move in to your dorm. Storage.com can help you tackle your college career with helpful tips or by providing you a safe storage solution for summer breaks.

When it’s time for a college internship, the sky’s the limit on your opportunities. If you do land that dream internship in a far-off city, though, you’ll have to manage your belongings before you leave your college apartment or dorm room. It may not be practical to take all of your college possessions with you to the big city or home to your parents’ house.

Self storage can help you store your college belongings while you complete an internship. Don’t know where to start? Don’t worry! Storage.com is your one-stop shop to finding the right storage solution that best suits your needs. You can find and reserve available storage units anywhere in the country in minutes with our easy-to-use website.

Helpful Storage Features for College Students

  • Unit Size: If you only have dorm room furnishings to store, a 5×5 unit may be large enough. If you are storing items from an apartment, or you have larger items like a bicycle, sporting gear, or furniture, you may need a 5×10 or 10×10 unit. Measure you belongings and use our storage unit size guide to determine how much space you need.
  • Climate Control: If you’re storing your belongings over the summer, it’s important to reserve a climate-controlled unit. This type of storage unit will stay between 55-85°F year-round with moderate humidity levels. If you are storing fabrics, pictures, electronics, or anything that is environmentally sensitive, a climate-controlled storage unit can protect those items from damage due to extreme conditions.
  • Security Amenities: When researching storage facilities near your campus or in the location of your internship, you want to make sure that your personal belongings are safe when you’re not using them. To ensure that your items will be safe, look for a  self storage facility that offers gated access and secure locks. If you want an additional layer of protection, find a storage facility that offers 24-hour on-site management, alarmed units, or video surveillance cameras.
  • Student Discounts: Don’t forget to look for places that offer student discounts. Many storage facilities offer student discounts, as well as deals for one month free or a free moving truck rental when you lease a storage unit. You can also consider sharing a storage unit with a friend so you can cut the price of the storage unit in half.
  • Vehicle Storage: If you are moving to an area of town where you can walk to work or use public transportation, but you still want to bring your car to use on the weekends, look for storage facilities in the city that offer vehicle storage. Many places will offer an indoor and outdoor option. One of the perks of storing your vehicle at a self storage facility during the week is being able to avoid parking tickets that can add up fast. If you’re moving to an apartment complex that charges for a garage or parking space, depending on where you’re moving, a self storage facility may be the cheaper option in the long run.

Once you’ve reserved a storage unit and made plans to store all of the items you won’t need during your internship, you’ll be one step closer to your new adventure. Now you can focus on improving your business skills, making contacts, and excelling in your field instead of worrying about where you’re going to store your futon for the next few months.
