Heading Home for the Summer?

Moving boxes filled with objects and clothes normally found at a dorm

As a college student, your focus during the month of April is to finish your classes strong and get ready for finals in May. If you’re heading home for the summer once the semester is over, you want to be sure that anything you leave behind will be safe and sound until you return. Whether you live in the dorms or you share an apartment with friends, you’ll most likely have some furniture and personal belongings that won’t be traveling home with you (especially if you’re flying). At EZ Storage® in Pittsburgh, we can help you find the ideal self-storage for the summer!

Your college or university most likely provides a bed and a desk for your dorm room, but the rest of the furnishings are up to you. If you found a couch or chair you really like, or an entertainment center that holds your TV, stereo, and all of your video game consoles, you want them to be in good condition when you return for fall semester. You could store them at a friend’s house, but the chances of things becoming damaged will be higher than if they were stored in secure storage unit. At EZ, we can help you find an affordable unit that meets your needs, and with our month-to-month pricing, you can rent a space in May and pick everything up in August! Your dorm furniture will be safe and sound and free from damage.

Your Vehicle

Another thing that might be left behind, especially if you’re flying home, is your vehicle. If you’re driving home, then you won’t have to worry about it, but for those with cars or trucks that they can’t take with them, it’s important to find a suitable storage solution for the summer. You might be able to park your vehicle on somebody’s property or in front of their house where they can keep an eye on it, but if you want it to be completely safe, the best solution is an enclosed parking space. At our Pittsburgh-area storage facilities, you can find vehicle storage that’s affordable and convenient.

Renting with Friends

dreamstime_xxl_17862693Many college students are on a budget, even during the summer, and paying for a self-storage unit on your own might not be a possibility. If you have a group of friends or roommates who also need to store some things, you can pool your resources and rent a unit together, splitting the cost several ways. We offer recurring billing and online payment options, so if you want to pay the monthly rate from your account and have your friends reimburse you for their portion, you won’t have to worry about breaking the bank. We have a number of unit sizes and pricing options, and our staff will gladly help you find the perfect one.

If you’re a college student in Pittsburgh who is heading home for the summer, now is a great time to begin thinking about self-storage. We want to make the process as easy as possible so that you can focus on finishing the semester and finalizing your summer plans.
