For many students this is the time of year where classes begin to wind down, and while there are still exams looming on the horizon, the prospect of summer is just a few weeks away. These days there are plenty of things for students to do to occupy their time during the long summer months, but if you’ve moved away from home to study, you might be wondering what to do with your possessions.
Taking A Gap Year
Using the long summer granted to you as a student means you can take on the ultimate trip you’ve always wanted. Whether you plan on an adventurous trip with friends or you want to immerse yourself in the culture of another country by working or teaching, a gap year can provide you with these options.
A gap year usually entails being away for more than just the summer months, meaning you will require a plan to secure your possessions for a longer period (especially since your parents won’t be keen to take your things in when you’re not even at home). Long term self storage is available through us at Barnes of lincoln to help you secure your possessions throughout your gap year, having them readily available for when you arrive back home to study.
Going Home For Summer
For those who have chosen to study in a different city elsewhere in the country the prospect of returning home for the summer could be a welcome one. Home cooked meals and a chance to relax with old friends back home is just the kind of routine needed to wind down after a year of studying.
While this seems like a good idea, leaving all of your possessions behind – whether in student halls, or in a shared student house – is not usually an alluring prospect. Valuables such as laptops and tablets can be taken home but parents won’t want to lug all of your things home and then back again. The best bet in this situation is to take advantage of the short term self-storage on offer at Barnes of Lincoln, allowing you to pick up your things once again before the new academic years begins.
Transporting Your Things
As a student it can be difficult to actually move your stuff without the help of friends and family, but here at Barnes of Lincoln we have a convenient collection and delivery service for any students who wish to store their things with us over the summer or during a gap year.
We’ll collect your items, take them to our secure storage and then deliver them back to you when you return for the new academic year. This takes the stress out of moving your things and gives you the peace of mind you need while you’re away.
If you’d like to learn more about our self storage options for students then please don’t hesitate to get in contact with us today. Our professional staff are always happy to help and will find a storage solution to suit your requirements, whether you have lots of things or just a few boxes.
