College students are always on a tight budget. However, as many of them work throughout the summer and aren’t paying for tuition, they typically have a little bit more cash to throw around. One common problem for students is storage, as they move back home for the summer and have to bring all of their stuff with them.

What if we told you that there was a way to keep your stuff near campus during the summer instead of hauling it home? In today’s post, Affordable Family Storage in Jefferson City will look at a few ways that you can utilize storage space during summer break.

Why Do I Need A Storage Space During Summer?

For the four years that you are in college, there is a good chance that you will make the long trek back home during the summer. Some students are lucky enough to live near campus or even commute to school during the semester, but most come from somewhat longer distances. If you are someone that has to travel home for the summer, it can be a pain to haul back all of your stuff when you will just be hauling it right back next fall.

Renting out a storage space allows you to keep some of your stuff in town while you travel. For Liberty students specifically, you can keep your stuff in Jefferson City and have it waiting for you when you get back. And Jefferson City is even an option for Mizzou students who can’t find an affordable option in Columbia.

What Are My Storage Options?

Unfortunately, if you live in a dorm during the semester, you don’t have a ton of options. You will have to move your stuff out of your dorm and most universities don’t offer a lot of good storage options. So, it is either move your stuff back home for the summer or find a storage space. If you are looking for a storage unit, you have a lot of options, but Affordable Family Storage offers you the best choices because we offer affordable climate-controlled units.

During the summer, a storage space that isn’t climate-controlled will be exposed to extreme temperatures that could damage your item. If you store with AFS, you won’t have that problem.

Is It Worth It?

If you are going to have some extra money to spare during the summer, renting out a storage space is absolutely worth it. Not only will you not have to move all of your stuff back home, but you will also get to keep that stuff near your campus, making the move-in process that much easier.

And we’ll even give you a month of free storage to allow you to save up money for the summer through our 1st Month Free program!
