What Not to Do: College Student Storage

Picking the Incorrect Size Storage Unit

You want to rent enough storage space to fit all of your items without paying for more than you need. Visit our online storage calculator to get an estimation of the best storage unit size for you. You want enough space for your belongings, plus some additional room for moving items around and organizing. If you still have questions, contact our office, and one of our experts will gladly give you a sizing recommendation.

Declining Insurance

Storage insurance protects your items in the event of any damage and is absolutely necessary when renting self storage. A-1 Self Storage offers different insurance plans, and you can see them in our online rental process.

Going in without a Plan

While you are spending time in school, it is likely your belongings are spread across your school home and your family home. When you add storage to the mix, it is one more place to keep track of. We recommend keeping a list of which items are in which location, so you have something to reference when searching for specific objects later.
