London has 40 institutes of higher education, which is one of the highest concentrations in the world, and it boasts some of the world’s best universities and colleges, which all adds to the rich culture attached to the city. And with 40 higher education institutions comes a lot of students, and with a lot of students comes student accommodation, whether that’s halls of residence for first year students, or shared student housing.
London is a busy city full of busy people, and it’s sometimes difficult to remain vigilant with regards to closing windows, locking doors you might not use all the time, like porches, rear and balcony doors, but it’s important to do a daily check. The one thing that thieves know is that a typical student will have at least one item of expensive electrical equipment, and a household of students can attract unwanted attention.
However, sometimes it’s not always possible to guarantee the security of your possessions, and for students, there are times where you may want to travel home for holidays, or you may have a foreign internship, or you plan to travel for the summer. This means that you might be leaving your house or apartment vacant for long periods, and you can’t always rely on your housemates to look after your belongings.
It’s also not a good idea to travel with expensive things, and for larger items, it’s not possible to do so – you can’t carry your PS4 and flat screen TV when you’re heading back to Hong Kong to see your parents, or you’re heading for an internship in South Africa.
You know that you need to keep your possessions safe and secure, and you may also have sentimental items that can’t be replaced, but you’re not sure what your options are.
Like all our customers, we’ve dedicated a lot of time to get to know and understand what our customers’ need from our self storage packages, and we’ve helped hundreds of students store their possessions. Whether that’s for students who’re are traveling or for savvy students who want the additional security that Fort Box’s can offer, our aim is to provide the highest level of storage at an affordable price.
We have student lockers for daily and weekly storage, and we also have self storage units to keep your possessions safe and secure for times when you’re leaving London. We have weekly contracts available to suit your needs, and we have a range of other offers, such as – One Month Rent Free, Free Van Collection, and we always aim to offer the most affordable rates on today’s market, and if you find a cheaper rate, we have our Low Price Guarantee offer.
And for students who can think outside of the box – why not rent a shared self storage unit with your housemates? That way, you can all ensure that your possessions are safe while you’re away from you shared house, and you save more money.
The Fort Box teams understand that, when you put the students’ customers first, everything else works.
