Using Storage Units for Student Mobility
Renting a storage unit is a great solution to address the problem known as student overflow. What exactly is student overflow? Well, if you have to ask, chances are you do not have a college-aged child living on campus. For those in the know, student overflow is the condition that affects families across the nation at the beginning and end of every school year, and sometimes during the year at the end of semesters or trimesters, depending on the chosen institute of higher education. It’s during this time that students must pack up the majority of the contents of their rooms at home and take them to their dorms or off-campus housing for the school year, and then back home. In reality parents are often the packers, movers, and coordinators who have made this happen, not once, but typically at least twice a year.
The storage buildings that have sprouted up across the country, many very close to college campuses, have helped alleviate the stress parents have been feeling. Many storage companies offer boxes of various sizes to use. Most provide basic packing supplies which include boxes, bubble wrap, packing tape and poster tubes, with additional containers in different sizes to accommodate items like bikes or flat screen tvs and plastic to house mattresses and rugs. The boxes are then ready to be moved to the storage unit and housed until they are needed.
Using storage units for student overflow not only makes life easier for the student, but much easier for the parent. Using storage buildings for student overflow is a great solution to student mobility as more and more parents and students recognize the value in utilizing these facilities.
