Inventory everything! It is so important to determine what you will need to store ahead of time, so you can rent the correct size unit. Our most popular unit sizes for student storage are 5x5 and 5x10 units. Those units are in high demand during the summer, so you’ll want to rent sooner rather than later! If you need help determining the right sized unit, check out our handy Unit Size Guide, or feel free to give us a call!

One Week Before:

Purchase packing supplies. We sell everything from boxes and bubble wrap to mattress covers.

Let’s be honest, during finals week you will not have time or energy to pack at the end of a long day.

What to Expect on Moving Day:

Come in during our office hours. You’ll be greeted by one of our friendly storage experts to help you through our quick and simple rental process!
