Finding a safe place to lock up your belongings in London can be tricky, especially for students. Most rely on the basic provisions their university or college provides if they have lockers. The only solution that’s left for students is to leave potentially expensive items at their student accommodation or share house and hope for the best. However, there may be a more secure way to store your possessions.
Fort Box works with hundreds of students every year, and we offer a specific storage option for students. We know that it’s not easy to find a suitable way to make sure your things are safe from theft and damage. That’s why we created out Student Storage package.
The Best Student Storage in London –
Lots of storage companies offer ‘student storage’. But that usually just means that they want students to use their storage units. There is little to no consideration to what students may need about their usual clients. Moreover, there is usually little communication made with students before they post about their storage deals for students.
What makes Fort Box different? Before we even thought of creating a student storage package, we spoke to students in London. Primarily, the things that were lacking in their universities and colleges were lockers. There were also concerns about the security of their possessions when they went home for the holidays. Additionally, they didn’t like carrying around expensive items or equipment in London.
We took this information, and the result is our holistic student’s storage package.
Fort Box has dedicated student lockers so that you can leave your items without having to go back to your accommodation. Your belongings are completely safe and secure, which means you can leave expensive equipment in your locker. It’s important to be mindful that your personal items can attract unwanted attention, so it can help to keep them somewhere safe.
We also have services that compliment that are perfect for students. A lot of our student clients start off with one of our lockers. After a while, they are planning a trip home and realise that the items they usually store in their lockers will be left at home over the holidays.
That’s where self storage units come in handy. And just like our student storage lockers, we have related services to help. We have a Free Van Collection service for storage rooms from 50 square feet and up. You can use our SmartTrakr app to inventory all your items before they go into your storage room. Additionally, we will also drop off the packing materials before the van comes to collect.
The Price is Right for London’s Students –
One of the critical issues that students brought to our attention was cost. Even for the mature and forward-thinking students, outlaying money for storage was tricky. Although some were able to relay the benefits to their parents or guardians to get assistance, some students are completely financially independent.
Fort Box understands how difficult it can be to balance costs of living in London, especially for students with little to no income. That’s why we often have discount on our storage rates for students. This discount makes a significant difference for students when it comes to storage. It becomes an affordable option that makes them confident that their belongings are secure.
It pays to be vigilant and to avoid the risk of damage or theft to your possessions. This is particularly true if you plan on heading home for any holiday periods. Don’t risk it – store your items with Fort Box to ensure they’re safe from damage or theft.
