London Self-Storage: At A Glance

With such a large population living in London, 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 more than twenty self-storages different in size with six of them located in 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 London student population affect self-storage prices?

With 120,000 students in London, the federal University of London is the largest contact teaching university in the United Kingdom. However, a number of universities in London are outside the University of London system. London is home to five major medical schools and numerous business schools.

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.
