Summer Jobs for College Students

With April now nearly half over, that means that May will soon arrive, which means the end of the semester for college students around the country. Many will be heading home for the summer, and if you’re a student who is looking for a seasonal job, then now is a good time to start calling businesses or to stop by local companies to see what kind of summer work they have available. If you run your own business during the summer, doing something such as mowing lawns or painting houses, then you’re likely looking forward to getting started and making some money between semesters!

At EZ Storage®, we can help you store items during your summer break, as well as any equipment you use for your summer job. When you’re looking for self-storage units in Philadelphia, there’s no better choice than us!

Lawn and Landscaping Services

dreamstime_xxl_31130269A large number of college and university students work in the lawn and landscaping industry during the summer, and it makes sense, since many of these companies need the extra personnel during the summer months. For students, it’s a chance to spend time outdoors after a semester spent inside classrooms and lecture halls, and it’s a way to make good money before heading back to school.

If you run your own landscaping and lawn care company during the summer, then you may need a place to store your mowers and trimmers at night or on the weekends. If you’re looking for an affordable storage solution, then contact us today! Keep in mind that you won’t be able to store gasoline or oil in a storage unit, so you’ll need to find a safe place for those items.

House Painting Services

Their family may have a painting company that has been in operation for generations, or a student may find a flyer in a coffee shop that’s advertising for summer help. Whatever the case may be, house painting, like landscaping, offers a chance to be outside and make good money during the summer. If you’re starting your own painting company this year, then you’ll need somewhere to store your ladders and scaffolding when you’re not working. A storage unit can be the ideal solution, and our staff can help you find the best spot for your equipment. You’ll need to find a different location for your paints and paint thinner, since those aren’t safe to put in a storage unit.

No matter what your summer job will be this year, EZ Storage® is here to help you store whatever you need to while you work. If you got a job that requires you to travel, we can help you find a spot for your car or truck so that it will be safe and sound until you return. If you’re selling things online and you need to store items until they’re ready to ship, we can provide the ideal space for that, too. Our month-to-month leases make it easy to store things for the time you need.
