A Checklist To See If You Should Use A College Storage Unit

Posted on

If you are going to be heading off to college, then you may want to rent a college storage unit to put some of your belongings into. You can use this checklist to see if a college storage unit would be in your best interest: 

You have items you want to bring but they won't fit in your dorm

If you have some things you would like to bring to college with you, but you can't because they won't all fit in your dorm, then you have the option of putting them in a college storage unit. You can get a unit that's close to your school, so you can keep your things in there and run to get them when you want or need them. 

You need to clear your things from home when you move

If you are going to be expected to remove all your things when you take off for college, then you can take them and put them in a college storage unit. It may be a good idea for you to have everything near you anyway, this way you can go through all your things and see if there are things you want to give away or sell while you decide on all the things you want to keep. You will also have everything with you, so you can move right into a home once you finish college if you decide to go somewhere else besides going back to your home after graduation. 

You participate in a lot of sports and hobbies

If you participate in a lot of sports and hobbies, then you will probably want to continue doing so on some level once you are attending college. Therefore, it will be a good idea for you to have your things nearby, so you can get your gear, equipment, or other supplies when you need them. For example, if you play hockey, go mountain biking, and love to sew, then you can bring things like your hockey gear, your mountain bike, and all your sewing supplies and fabric with you and put them into a college storage unit. They will be there when you want to use them. 

You plan on selling things to keep you afloat

If you are going to need to sell a lot of your things in order to help you pay for expenses while you are at college, then putting everything into a nearby college storage unit makes things easy. You can go to the unit and grab things out that you need to sell next, so you can meet with buyers quickly to make the sales.
