Student Storage in Newcastle Discussed by Ashington’s Removals & Storage
Affordable, easy and secure student storage in Newcastle and the North East
When you are nearing the end of your University year you will start to think about your well-deserved break where you won’t need to think about lectures, revising and assignments, however, what are you going to do with all of your belongings? Have you considered student storage as an option?
You normally have to clear your student accommodation at the end of each academic year as it isn’t often that you will return to the same accommodation for your next year of study. Whether it is University accommodation or you have rented privately on your own or with friends you aren’t normally able to leave your belongings there over your break.
This can make finishing the year and starting your new year very difficult as often you won’t have a car or a big enough car to transport all of your things back home. It normally means that your family need to make a journey or two to help you transport all of your belongings.
Whether you’re going home for your break, going on holiday abroad or you’ve actually finished University and you’ve decided to take a gap year travelling then you will still have the same problem with your belongings.
Where are you going to store all of the things you’ve accumulated over the year or years? You’ll be surprised how much you have acquired, even if you’ve been in your university’s halls of residence and only had a room. Often students will arrange for parents to come up to collect their belongings but when it comes to it they have far more stuff than when they first started and 2 trips need to be made. Whether you’re an hour away or 8 hours away from home the time it takes and the cost soon mounts up and when the term ends you don’t have much time to empty and clean your accommodation to ensure you don’t get charged or your deposit held.
Finding yourself convenient and easy self-storage for your belongings is much easier than all of this. Ashington Removals & Storage offers easy and secure student storage meaning you can pack your belongings and leave them in the local area of your university for an easy and convenient set-up at the start of your new year. Ashington’s are based in Ashington in Newcastle Upon Tyne and are within easy access of Newcastle University, Northumbria University and Durham University.
We offer practical and easy storage solutions for you as a student as well as flexible contracts over the summer and flexible sized storage as we know every person has different needs.
At the start of your new year at university, you may get to your accommodation and realise there isn’t enough room for all of your belongings and if this is the case then we can extend your storage contract and downsize the unit so you’re not paying for storage space you aren’t using.
In summary, Ashington’s Removal & Storage offers small and large storage units for rent as well as flexible timeframes until you know exactly what you need and when.
Why would you have student storage?
It saves you packing up your belongings and making several trips back and forth at the end of term and at the start of your new year
It will save you travelling time too and from in the long run
It will reduce your fuel costs if you or your parents are making several trips at the end of term and at the start of your new year at university
It will save you a lot of effort. There’s no point moving all your stuff back home just to bring it back again in September
Your student belongings and furniture won’t take up space in your family home
You know your belongings are safe and secure 24/7
You know your belongings are dry and won’t be damaged which can often happen when storing them in a loft or garage
You don’t have to move it all at once, you can take your time to store things over a few days and again at the other end at the start of your new year
You don’t have to unpack all at once and if you don’t have enough room for everything in your new accommodation you can extend your storage and decrease your storage unit space
Your storage space will be individual to you with either a lock or a pin code
You can always ask a friend to share with you if you already share a flat or house with them and this can make things easier and cheaper for you
Sharing a storage space will likely save you all money and using Ashingtons means we can advise you on the best unit size to fit your belongings so you don’t waste any space or money
Your belongings will be available for you to access whenever you need them
If you’re taking a year out you don’t need to worry about coming back at a certain time as your self-storage can be extended. Everything you don’t or can’t take with will be securely stored, ensuring your parent’s don’t need to store everything for you in your family home
Not all student accommodation needs you to remove everything at the end of each academic year so always check this in advance so you can make the arrangements to suit you at a self-storage facility
If you are renting privately check with your landlord or letting agent and ask if you can leave any of your belongings and furniture. If you can then always be aware of what you are leaving and how secure they will be. Even a locked house can get broken into and valuables taken if people are aware no one has been living there for a while. A lot of landlords will want their properties cleared at the end of the academic year as this is when they arrange a full and extensive clean, repainting and any odd jobs that need doing
If you decide on self-storage for your belongings over the summer always think about the location of the storage facilities in relation to your university. Ashingtons Removal & Storage facilities are conveniently located in the North East and are within easy access of Newcastle University, Northumbria University and Durham University.
Year out or gap year
