Birmingham Self-Storage: At A Glance
With such a large population living in Birmingham, moving in and out, there are numerous self-storages available. Choosing the one that suits your needs should not be a problem. City and its surrounding host over twenty self-storages different in size with six of them located just near city centre. You can use storages for differently sized items: from books and clothes that overcrowd your home, to robust pieces of furniture that need to be laid aside while moving, as well as for short and long term storing of goods.
Does Birmingham student population affect self-storage prices?
Birmingham hosts five universities: Aston University, University of Birmingham, Birmingham City University, University College Birmingham and Newman University. It is also home of three campuses, and with student population of 78,259, it is the second largest student city in the United Kingdom outside London.
Every year, students move in and out of dorm rooms. However, student budget is limited, and it often doesn’t allow moving furniture, books and other belongings all the way back home. Keeping things in local self-storage is more convenient, and many students as well as owners of self-storages know that. That is why in many places with large student population some storage facilities offer discounts specifically for students to help them afford a storage unit.
