It is no secret that college students live on a much smaller budget than most people. Many are limited in the hours that they are able to work each week, whether that be due to their studies or because they are a student-athlete, and what little money they have typically goes to the essentials: food, gas, and tuition.
With that being true, a personal storage unit isn’t usually on the mind of college students. In fact, it might be the last thing on their mind. And while it might be difficult to find room in your budget for a storage unit, Affordable Family Storage in Jefferson City thinks that it can be worth it, especially during the semester. Here’s why.
Affordable Family Storage in Jefferson City is a brisk 30-minute drive from Columbia, Mo, so on top of our own Liberty University students, our city is well aware of the struggles of college students. While some students are able to attend a school that is near their childhood home, not all students have that privilege, making storage a bit harder. What do you leave at home and what do you bring with you to school?
When you are living on campus during the semester, your dorm room won’t provide an abundance of storage space, making the need for a personal storage unit that much more pressing. At Affordable Family Storage in Jefferson City, you can rent out a 10x10 personal storage unit for less than $100 per month. Not only that, but the unit is also climate-controlled, so you can store your books and even furniture in your unit without the fear of them being damaged.
Another benefit of renting out a personal storage unit during your semester is that you will have a much easier summer if you plan on staying in the city. For Mizzou students spending the summer in Jefferson City or for Liberty students not wanting to travel home for the summer, renting out a storage unit during the semester will prevent you from having to travel back home to pick up belongings for your summer stay.
It also gives you a space to store appliances that you need for an apartment but don’t need in your dorm, such as a washing machine, dishwasher, or refrigerator. Those are items that you won’t be able to store in your dorm room and a storage unit allows you to have them ready to go when you need them in the summer.
Moving back home for the summer is great for students looking to get away from the stresses of their semester, but the moving process that happens each and every May can get exhausting. Renting out a storage unit during the semester will give you a space to store your belongings for the summer as you move back home for those few months.
And the best part is that the storage unit will be there waiting for you when you get back for the semester, giving you a place for you to store what you need to be stored next semester.
For college students operating on a tight budget, finding affordable personal storage can be difficult. However, Affordable Family Storage wants to help you find a storage space on your budget. For more information, give us a call at (573) 240-8668 or contact us online today.
