Student Storage London... simple

Space and Time Mobile Student Storage London is the ideal place to keep your precious belongings while traveling back home for the summer.  We pride ourselves in being the most convenient way to store. Also, we cover students studying at the University of Birmingham.

Because we are mobile, certainly remove the stress of traveling to a storage depot in or around Birmingham. Therefore, we will save you lots of time to relax after a very hard term studying rather than stressing where your expensive books and goods are going to be stored.

Most noteworthy, our system speaks for itself. We can deliver your flat pack empty boxes on your desired date and time, hence, alleviating wait-time for your delivery. As a result of our many years experience providing an excellent service, even more international students visit our website every year.

Furthermore our online booking program not only enables you to book your boxes, above all. Similarly if you do know your return date to the UK and the city you are going to continue your studies, you can even book in you redelivery date at the same time, above all we take the safety of your belonging very seriously and can assure you that they are in very safe hands. Finally if you do require insurance cover whilst your stuff is in store we have this covered also.

Here are the best SPACE & time saving tips for moving out of University

Everything you need to do to make things easier. Especially useful for international students.

The semester is almost over, and it is time to study for the final exams and get ready to move out. This can be stressful under any circumstances, more so with all the deadlines approaching.
Here you can find SPACE & time saving tips that will make packing faster, easier and more fun! Don’t forget that we can store all your boxes safely in a location near you and deliver them to your new address whenever you are ready.

1. Start by getting rid of everything you don’t need
First things first, decide what you really want. Think you can get some cash for your unwanted things? eBay can be a great way to find out. Otherwise, consider donating your unwanted things to charity.

2. Sort your seasonal stuff
Now you’re left with the things you need. But with the weather warming up, you won’t be needing certain things for a while. Your winter coat, chunky jumpers, woolly hat, gloves, scarf; keep all that together so they can go straight into storage.

3. Wrap anything sharp
You’ll want some bubble wrap if you’ve got picture frames, mirrors, crockery, cutlery, chopping knives. Basically, anything that’s sharp, or could break during the move, should be tucked up in some bubbles.

4. Label boxes clearly
Write on the side of the box what’s inside. It’ll make it easier to position fragile things in the car, and easier to unload when you get home. You can do this with your bags as well. You can put some tape on them and use it as a label to write on.

5. Use bags for clothes and bedding
It’s by far the easiest way to get your soft, fabric items home. A roll of black bags won’t cost much, and they’re easier than boxes to squeeze into small spaces in the car. Just remember to double-bag if you’re filling them to the brim.

6. Box up everything else
Ask at supermarkets and corner shops for boxes they’re getting rid of. Even small ones will be useful. Light stuff goes in big boxes, heavy stuff in small boxes. And if you’re mixing, put heavier items in the box first. We can provide hardy boxes if you decide to store your items safely with MCR Self-Storage instead of taking them with you.

7. Reinforce open edges with brown tape
There’s more to building a box than putting a strip of tape where the bottom flaps meet. Seal the bottom flaps to the sides of the box too, with tape that goes right along the edge and around the corners. It’ll make the whole thing much stronger. That is, if you are not using our Student Packing Kit and boxes.

8. Pack anything you don’t need first
Get a head start by packing anything you won’t be using again before you leave. Kitchen stuff, pictures and mementos, decorations; anything you don’t use, get it packed early.

9. Collect free newspapers for packing
You’ll still want to bubble wrap glass, breakables, and anything sharp. But collect a couple of free newspapers too, because they’ll fill the empty space in a box and stop your things clattering around.

10. Roll your clothes
Clothes take up less space if they’re rolled instead of folded. A useful, space-saving tip whether you are packing them into boxes, bags, or suitcases.

11. Stuff small items in your shoes
Socks, pants, jewelry, pens. Anything that can go in a shoe should go in a shoe. Another little space-saver you won’t regret.

12. Wrap anything that might leak
Liquids, lotions, oils, and powders are the movers worse enemy. Surely, we’ve all got a holiday horror story involving shampoo in a suitcase? If it could leak or spill, wrap it in cling film or seal it in a plastic bag.

13. Fill a small bag with your essentials
When everything else is packed and ready to go, grab your rucksack and fill it with the daily essentials. Phone, charger, laptop, wallet, headphones, book, toothbrush. Anything you’ll need for the journey or during the first 24 hours back home.
