Looking for college student storage can be a tedious and time consuming task. There are so many options that you need to account for. Some companies offer full service storage.

What to Look for in Summer Storage for College Students
- Local Storage with Pickup Services
- Student Storage that Accepts Student Shipping
- Affordable Storage Units
- The OnDemand Storage Cube: Affordable Moving and Storage
Local Storage with Pickup Services
Many college students who require summer storage, will likely be from far away. If that is the case, then you will likely not have any direct means of transportation (i.e. a car on/near campus). To make things easier on yourself, it may be wise to invest in a full service storage company that offers pickup and drop off services. That way, all you need to do as a college student is contact the provider, agree on a pickup time, pack your belongings and meet with the local storage with pickup provider at the agreed upon location and time. End of the year means lots of headaches with finals. Let a full service storage company take the load off of your shoulders, and handle your storage needs.
Student Storage that Accepts Student Shipping
Another option for the vehicle-less college student is to ship your items to storage. If you connect with a student storage company that accepts student shipping, everything gets a whole lot easier for you! Just pack your items, go to a local shipping provider, and ship your belongings away! No need for a vehicle or to waste time finding one.
Affordable Storage Units
Maybe you do have a car, or maybe you have a friend with a car. Maybe you do not want to pay any extra fees for a full service storage company. If that is the case, then price is definitely your main driver! Look for local moving and storage companies that fall in line with your budget for summer storage for college students. Many local moving and storage companies offer affordable storage units that you will be able to fill your possessions with. Although, unlike the full service storage, you will have to handle moving your items into and out of storage on your own. Maybe ask a few friends to help, in exchange for a case of beer or pizza!
