Is Moving Uni Accommodation Expensive? 2250 1500 Stored Away

Moving house at any time in your life is a pretty stressful experience, but doing it on a student budget can make it a whole lot more so.

If you’re not rolling in it, and let’s face it, how many students are, there’s not a whole lot of room for things to go over budget, and once you’ve paid your deposit, bought some furniture, and paid your first rent and bills instalment, there’s unlikely to be a whole lot left over for the other potential logistical issues. 

This article looks at how you can save both money and time by using a smart removal and storage plan.

Gaps between tenancies

You’ve found your perfect new place with the perfect flatmates, you’ve signed the contract, your old lease is about to end – everything is going to plan. Except, it’s June, and you don’t move into your new place until September. 

What do you do? Gaps between tenancies can make the moving experience quite stressful, not to mention expensive. If you have a car, it can simplify matters somewhat, but especially in cities like London, who has a car? Even with a car, moving furniture like sofas and beds is often impossible.

If you’re ‘lucky’ enough to go to university in the same city that your parents live in, and they’re willing to store your stuff, that could be an option. However, most people don’t have this luxury – what can they do? 

Moving your belongings back to your hometown in a removal van would be ridiculously expensive, all the more so because you’ll have to hire a van to move it back again when your new tenancy begins. The problems are clear, but are the solutions?

The solution?

Enter storage solutions such as ours at Stored Away. We offer a service in which we come and pick up whatever you need moving, store it for as long as you require at one of our secure locations, and then deliver the contents to you again when you’re ready. 

Our services can cut the cost of moving accommodation massively. By combining the required services (primarily the moving and storage of items) into one, the admin required is drastically reduced, allowing the service to be sold for a lower price than if each aspect of moving were sought out from separate providers.

For students based in London, we offer student discounts, with storage deals from £14 per week

Of course, the rate is entirely dependent on the amount that needs moving and storing, but you can book a video survey with us to get a more accurate estimate. 

We offer spaces as small as 3.5 cubic metres, meaning you won’t be paying for wasted space, as can often be the case with many other storage providers. 

Our booking process is speedy, taking about 5 minutes, making it an ideal solution if you don’t have any time to faff around during exam season. We look forward to taking the hassle out of moving to a new place, and if you have any questions feel free to contact our friendly team today!
