STUDENT STORAGE

Student storage at Asheville Storage, the college years may be a time to expand your mind, but physical space can be a problem. There are only so many cubbies, nooks, and crannies in your dorm room.  After you have completely suffocated and crushed whatever gear you neatly stowed under your bed in the fall with all the extra clothes and books that you accumulated throughout the year, what do you do to make space in your room to walk? Mom will be furious if she finds out that her child lives in a pigsty.  Dad will surely give another lecture on male etiquette, which, as usual, ends with “You’ll never impress a girl like that!” A quick fix and a breath of fresh air — literally — may come with a call to the local self-storage company.

Depending on the time of year, it may be tricky to find a cheap, available student storage space right away, especially if you live in a small to a medium-sized college town.  It may even be nearly impossible if you try to search within the last month of the semester unless you are willing to travel a few extra miles from campus.  However, if you are looking just to free up some space during the year and you do not want to ship your “valuables” across the country to mom and dad’s basement, then renting a small storage unit may be worth the cost.  There are just a few things you may want to ask a company before renting a unit:

  • How is the security?  (Cameras, personnel, fencing around property, etc.)
  • Is there a sign-up, administration or deposit fee?
  • Are the first and/or last months prorated?
  • Do you need to provide your own lock?
  • What happens to your stuff if you forget to pay or your automatic credit card payment doesn’t go through?
  • Are there late payment fees?
  • What can you store there?
  • Are there any student discounts?

Now that you have a student storage unit, what do you store?  Nothing illegal, of course, but also nothing flammable or perishable!  Some places offer outdoor storage, which works great for your car if you have to leave it over spring or summer break. Others offer special features like air conditioning or climate control that protect your goods from extreme temperatures and humidity. Things to be stored include old textbooks, seasonal clothes, clothes you know you are not going to wear until maybe next Halloween and that box you’ve had since freshman year that you know are not important enough to take the time to open.

Here are a few tips to help make things easy to find in your student storage unit:

  • Label boxes.
  • Place least likely to be used items in the back.
  • Place breakables on top.
  • Leave space between rows of boxes, so you can walk between them.
  • Consider adding shelves.

By freeing up some space in your room, not only will you make your parents proud (and potentially that cutie in Chem lab), but you will also be able to start doing all of the things you couldn’t in that wasteland you used to call home.

Very Professional

Would recommend to anyone, including family and friends.  We’ve hired AAA Storage World for two moves and they were great to work on both occasions.  We contemplated moving everything ourselves on our first move, but in the end decided to outsource.  No regrets, it made our move experience that much smoother.  Professional, hard working, courteous staff.

Easily Accessible and Convenient

Great facility and staff! Easily accessible and convenient location. The office has a nice selection of affordable packaging supplies and the entire place is kept very clean! Most of our unloading was done at night so I really appreciate the gated entrance/ exit and how well lit the facility is (the temperature controlled unit is a nice bonus too)! I also want to mention that the staff went above and beyond to help us get a 2nd unit even though we got stuck in traffic and couldn’t get there until after hours. So I would definitely recommend this facility and company to anyone needing a storage unit!
