Student Storage Manchester Frequently Asked Questions
At Student Storage Manchester we understand that you may be new to requiring storage whilst you are away from the university on your holidays. It may also be the last thing you consider as your educational year comes to an end. For this reason our team of experts have compiled as list of the most popular questions we have been asked from the hundreds of students who have stored with us over the years.
How does student self storage work?
Self Storage is an easy and flexible solution allowing you to store you personal and educational belongings over the student holiday period. Rather than having the struggle, inconvenience and expense in taking your items home when term ends you can use self storage to keep safe what you don’t need until you return to university.
What methods of payment do you take?
You can make payment either over the phone with a debit or credit card by calling 0161 304 5695 or by paying the driver in cash when he comes to collect your items.
Where do you collect from and then deliver back to?
If you are living in halls of residence then we will collect from and deliver back to the front door of the halls residence. On the pre-agreed date of collection or delivery we will contact you 1 hour before, giving you plenty of advanced warning. If you are living in a private residence then we will collect from and deliver to the front door of the property. We appreciate you may be living in a different property to the one you vacated before the holiday period. This is not an issue we just need the full address of your new residence before we deliver your belongings back to you.
What happens if I need to increase or decrease the number of items I am storing?
When you call to book your storage unit we will advise on what size you need and how much this will cost you. If your circumstances change and you need to increase or decrease the number of items then this is not a problem. When we collect your possessions we will recalculate your cost to accommodate what you are storing.
What happens if I need to get to my items before term starts?
This is not an issue. Student Storage Manchester is open between the hours of 8am - 10pm, 7 days a week meaning you can come to the storage centre and access your items at a time to suit yourself and as frequently as you want. There is no extra cost for this.
Can I store my stuff for longer than just the summer?
Yes. You can store your items for as long or short a period as you require. This can all be arranged when you book your storage unit with us by calling 0161 304 5695.
Can I store my belongings before and after the holiday period?
Yes not a problem. Call one our team today to discuss your requirements.
Where will my items be kept?
Student Storage Manchester is close to your university. Our storage centre is fitted with over 120 CCTV cameras, a red care alarm system linking to the police. Along with this we have high security fencing around the centre and regular patrols from security firms.
Why are you a lot cheaper than other storage companies?
We are proud of the fact that we are significantly cheaper than any other storage company in the Manchester area. We can offer the cheapest prices as we are a privately owned family business so don’t have to report to shareholders unlike some of our competition. Believe it or not we were once students too and understand that money can be tight, for that reason we don’t charge over the odds. We believe in offering an excellent service for an affordable price.
