How to Store Your Stuff For Summer?

What is Help U Store It?

Think of us as “Valet Storage”.  We come and get your stuff, store it, and bring it back to you!

We are a full-service moving and storage company designed for only for college students. We make moving out and into your dorm each year completely hassle free.   Founded by former students, we know how painful the moving process at colleges can be. We created a solution. 

Our All-Inclusive pricing makes it easy to understand.   For one low price, we provide: Packing supplies, Storage, Pick-up and Delivery. 

Why Do I need Summer Storage?

This can be answered with another question: “What else are you going to do with all your stuff?!”

We get it – you have final exams, internships to apply for, study abroad trips to plan, and roommates to pick for next year – storage is not a topic you’re thinking about often! 

Storage is a necessity for the majority of college students that live on-campus or off-campus.  It can cause a real headache if you don’t plan in advance, however don’t fret that is where we come in. 

What do you do with all the items in your dorm room?   

  1. Should you rent a nearby storage unit?    The answer to this question is easy:  NO!   Storage units are very costly, and require monthly contracts.  Moreover, they require you to rent a truck and move your items yourself. Storage units COST YOU MORE MONEY, and MORE TIME.
  1. Should you rent a car/truck and drive your items home or to a friend’s house?   Another easy answer:  NO!

Most car rental companies as well as UHAUL, require the renter to be at least 25 years or older.  For most, that puts this option off the table.   Moreover, the cost of the rental plus the time it takes to move yourself are far outweighed by Help U Store It’s full-service storage options.

  1. Should your parents come and help you move out?  Answer: Costly, Timely, and Unnecessary.

Asking your parents to come move you out of your dorm is a tall order.   Do you remember their faces on move-in day, the headaches, the sweat, and all the time it took?   Do you really want to go through that again?    

  1. It extremely time consuming to move yourself, not to mention the labor is strenuous. 
  2. The crowds and stress of moving cause headaches.
  3. The cost to move yourself should not be underestimated.  Are your parents missing a day of work, paying for a lot of gas, a flight, a rental car?
  4. What are you going to do with all the stuff once it gets back to your house? Put it in a musty garage, or take up the family living room?
