Self Storage For Overseas Students

Did you know that many overseas students use our self-storage units in Edinburgh?  Over the years, we have had hundreds of students from overseas use our state-of-the-art self-storage units that are conveniently located in the center of Edinburgh.  Starting University is an exciting but daunting experience for many.  However, we make this much easier for overseas students that want to bring over as much from their homes as possible.  We feel that you shouldn’t have to leave any valuable or sentimental items behind you.

The main issue with student halls and accommodation is that there is simply not enough room to store everything you want to store and find a home for.  That’s where Edinburgh Self Store provides a direct solution to that as we offer competitively priced self-storage options for overseas students.  Overseas students have stored a multitude of different belongings and items with us including books, desks, office chairs, clothing, course books, valuable items, and sentimental items.  And we understand that money is tight as a student which is why we also offer shared space!

For overseas students, it’s likely that you may be traveling back and forth 2-3 times per year.  If this is the case for you, it’s likely that you’ll require safe storage space that you can trust so that you’re not traveling back and forth with heavy items.  Even better, you won’t have to lift a finger so you can get right into your studies and get that degree that you deserve.  Our team will take full responsibility for securely packing everything for you and we are more than happy to pick up everything directly from your student halls.

Overseas Self Storage For Students – Top Tips

We understand that starting a University in a brand new place and being unaware of your surroundings can be very overwhelming but we can reassure you that Edinburgh is an amazing place to live that’s full of friendly people. Everyone here – including our team at Edinburgh Self Store are here to help you settle in as quickly as possible.  For overseas/international students looking for self-storage, we have some top tips for you.  Our number one tip would be to carefully select the items that you want to place within self-storage.  Our recommendation would be to store items that are important to you but items that you don’t necessarily need on a daily or even weekly basis.  As previously mentioned, there tends to be only a limited amount of space in typical student accommodation. Examples of the types of items that overseas students tend to store with us include additional office desks, course books, spare quilts, and much more.

24/7 Access, 365 Days A Week

We understand the importance of having access to your personal belongings and possessions 24/7 as an overseas student which is exactly what you get when you choose Edinburgh Self Store for self-storage units.  Our fully monitored and alarmed units are available to you whenever you need access and we will provide you with your own personal key holder and password.
