Starting School in January?

For those who are currently in college, the middle of December often means preparing for finals and looking forward to winter break. However, if you’re someone who is going to be starting school in January, either because you took a hiatus from academics, or you’re enrolled for just a few credit hours, then your December can look much different. At EZ Storage® in Detroit, we’re here to help you find the right self-storage unit for anything you want to keep safe during the semester. If you’re looking for a place to live or moving and organizing your belongings, then visit one of our metro-area locations today to see how we can help you!

Finding a Place to Live

If you’re going to be moving out of the place you’re living in so that you can be closer to school, then hopefully you already have some potential spots picked out. You might be moving in with friends or relatives, and with any shared space, there’s going to be a limit on how much you can store there. By renting a small storage unit, you can keep those important items safe and not have to worry about taking up too much space in your new residence.

For those enrolling in an undergraduate program, the dorms are always a viable option. Living in a residence hall on campus can make it easier to get to classes on time, eat your meals in the cafeteria, and participate in more social activities. The one drawback of living in the dorms is that you will only be able to bring a few things with you, such as clothes, a few pieces of furniture, and perhaps a TV. Other items will need to be stored elsewhere, such as a local self-storage unit.

Moving and Organizing Your Belongings

If you’re moving before the spring semester starts, then you’ll want to make sure that you’ve gone through your belongings to see what’s worth keeping and what you could perhaps toss or donate. For those who are moving out of their parents’ house, it can be tempting to leave a bunch of stuff behind, but it’s important to talk with your parents first on what you can keep there.

If you’re moving to the dorms, then there’s a good chance you’ll be living at home during the summer and winter breaks over the next few years, so leaving behind what you don’t need at school is a possibility. If you’re moving to a house or an apartment, then it can be better to look at what you can take with you and what could be put into storage. Once you’re out of the house, your parents might have plans for your old bedroom!

Planning for the Future

Going back to college in January is likely the first step towards your future and all that you want to accomplish. You might be finishing up those last few credit hours so that you can graduate and start your career, but whatever the case may be, we can make sure that your belongings are safe and sound. If you get a job in another city after graduation, then you can leave some things in storage until you get settled. If your career takes you overseas, then you can store your vehicle, boxes of belongings, and other items until you return.

At EZ Storage®, we’re dedicated to helping every customer find the perfect self-storage solutions. Our monthly leases make it easy to rent for the time you need, so if you only need a unit for the spring semester, then we’ll provide you with the ideal choice. If you’re going to moving around or traveling a lot in the next year, then you can leave your things in storage and not have to worry about a thing.
