Portable Storage Container Tips for College Students and Their Parents
Our A.B. Richards storage experts can help you every step of the way when choosing the right container for your needs. In terms of how best you can use our storage as you pack for university life, our experts put together some tips for college students and their parents:
- If you’re a teen heading off to college for the first time this fall or the parent of one, then congratulations! And now that graduation season is over, this is the time to start thinking about preparing and packing for campus life. You can use one or more portable storage containers to set aside, organize and store items that you as a student are taking with you to college or you as a parent are sending with your teen to college.
- If you or your teen is in his or her sophomore, junior or senior of college, then you know how much stuff is accumulated during a college career. If you’re a parent, then renting a portable storage unit at your home for your teen to store extra belongings instead of transporting them to and from school is a smart idea. If you’re a student, then renting a unit by yourself or splitting the cost of renting one with your roommates or parents is also a good, cost-effective idea because you can expand your living space without having to move elsewhere and shelling out more rent money.
- If you’re studying abroad, if your university is located in a large, expensive city instead of a smaller college town, or if you’re in between leases as you take a summer job or internship, then portable storage containers can also help you store your belongings safely and conveniently without having to ship them overseas, finding a larger more expensive place to live in the city or worrying about what to do with your campus belongings while you work or intern.
