July is almost over, and for college students who are heading back to campus, this means it’s time to start preparing for a return to school. At EZ Storage® in Detroit, we can help any college-bound person find the perfect self-storage unit for any belongings they’re not taking with them, or anything they want to keep safe for the semester. Visit one of our metro-area locations today to learn more!

Moving Into the Dorms

If you’re a college student who’s been living with your parents for the summer, then you were likely able to spread out while you occupied your old bedroom. You may have even gotten some of your belongings out of the closets or the garage, where they’d been stored for the past few months. However, if you’re moving back into the dorms, then you’re going to have to consolidate some things and leave some items behind.

When it comes to storing personal items, your parent’s garage or basement is an option, but there might not be enough room in those spaces. Renting a small storage unit can be an ideal alternative, and depending on where your college campus is, you may be able to find a unit that’s close to school. With access hours on every day of the year, you can get to your things whenever you need!

Moving to a New Apartment

Perhaps this is the year when you’re going to move into an apartment close to campus with a few of your friends. You’ve been looking forward to this for a long time, but it’s important to remember that you’re not going to be able to bring everything you own with you. Everyone who’s going to be living in the house will have belongings that they want to bring, which is why it’s important to have a conversation that covers what the house needs, how much stuff everyone can bring, and what the common or shared spaces will be.

Once everyone understands what they can bring, you can talk about renting a storage space together for everything else that won’t fit in the house. Splitting the cost of a unit can make it affordable for everyone, and no one should feel like they didn’t get their fair share of space both in the house and in the storage unit.

Studying Abroad for the Semester

This upcoming semester of college may have more in store for you than just heading back to campus and starting new classes. If you’re studying abroad for the next few months, then you may need somewhere to store a few belongings while you’re overseas. Instead of relying on your parents or relatives to safeguard your stuff, you can take on the responsibility yourself to find a suitable storage solution. We have a number of units available, and we can help you decide which one is right for you. If you have electronics such as a TV or computer that you need to store, then we recommend you take a look at a climate-controlled unit.

With month-to-month leases on all of our spaces, you can rent for the time you need, and when you get back from your semester abroad, your things will be waiting for you. You can pay your bill online from anywhere in the world, so you won’t have to worry about sending payment or making special arrangements before you leave.
