FAQs from Students

A little bit of knowledge can go a long way.

Here are our Top 12 questions asked by students regarding our

fantastic Student Storage service:


1. How big are the cardboard boxes you provide?

Each one of our boxes is W57cm D36cm H46cm or roughly the size of a medium-sized suitcase. They are double-walled for extra strength and durability.

2. Can I store additional items such as bikes, suitcases or exercise equipment?

Yes. You can add additional items to your storage package at Booking Step 5. This includes everything from furniture to musical instruments.

3. Which days of the week can you deliver my boxes and/or collect my items?

You can choose for us to deliver your boxes and collect your items Monday to Friday. You will be given a time slot of AM or PM. AM collections and deliveries will be anytime between 0800-1300. PM collections and deliveries between 1200-1700. Please make sure you are available between these hours and your mobile phone is on with reception.

4. Are my items insured when in storage?

Yes. Our service is fully insured against accidental damage from our team. For peace of mind you can also increase the level of cover when you book online.

5. At the end of my storage period, how do I get my items returned to me?

Simple. Just email us at with your account number in the ‘Subject’ line and let us know when and where you would like re-delivery to take place.

6. Can you also ship to different cities and countries?

8. Can I store my items for under a week?

We operate a minimum cost for shorter storage periods from just £49.00. If you only have a few items and just need storage for a week or less, call our team on 0800 170 1260 and we’ll guide you through it.
