Why College Students Should Get A Storage Unit

college student tips for storage units empire storage of spokane wa

Empire Storage of Spokane believes that our storage units are the best solution to your college living dilemma.

Every college student knows that sooner, rather than later, you are going to have an issue about what to do with all your stuff. You might encounter moving from residence to dorm life, or vice versa. You will definitely be heading back home for summer breaks or other vacations. Or perhaps you are even studying abroad for a short time. What if you just run out of room in your dorm? Or the 1 bedroom apartment that 4 friends are sharing?

As a college student you have 2 options. You can pack up all your stuff and bring it home with you, which can be time consuming and stressful or you can get an affordable storage unit.  

1.     SAVE MONEY. The total cost of renting a truck to move your items is a lot more then just renting a storage unit. Not to mention, where on earth do you plan on storing your items? Your parent's house?! Make your parents happy, just get a storage unit.
2.     HAPPY PARENTS. I'm going out on a limb here but I don't think you or your parents want to dish up the money for a moving truck or even to pack your personal vehicles to near breaking point. I don't think anyone's parents want to store your items in their basement, spare room, garage, or dining room table! You'r parents will give you a great big thank you hug if you just go ahead and get a storage unit.
3.    SAFE & PROTECTED. Our storage units at Empire Storage of Spokane are safe and secure. Your items are protected 24/7. You won't have to worry about misplacing items in your parents house, or risk the chance of something breaking. Items being stolen is a possible risk you take if you choose to leave your possessions in a shared apartment over the Summer.
