The Benefits of Summer Storage for College Students

Like most college students, you probably have a lot of furniture, books, posters, and more, all specifically for your dorm, apartment, or house on or near campus—and all that stuff is going to need a place to go come summertime. That’s where SMARTBOX comes in! We have portable storage options that are perfect for your college furniture.

We make summer storage easy by bringing our portable storage containers to you—and they’re only 5 feet wide, which means they’ll fit perfectly in most standard-size parking spots. That way, you can take all the time you need loading up all your belongings. When you’re ready, we’ll pick up your belongings and take them to our secure, temperature-controlled storage facility until you’re ready for them next fall. If you need access to your things before the fall semester, all you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call. We can have your storage containers ready for you when you arrive.

Do Your Research and Learn More About the Box

Our portable storage containers are perfect for your summer storage. Check them out:

  • Each SMARTBOX container is 8 feet deep by 7 feet tall by 5 feet wide and can hold up to 3,500 pounds.
  • The boxes can hold approximately one to one and a half rooms’ worth of furniture and belongings, including your largest items such as refrigerators, desks, and king-sized mattresses and box springs.
  • Our portable storage containers are made of a durable wood with an all-seasons weather-resistant cover to keep your belongings safe from the elements while packing.
  • SMARTBOX self-storage units sit only 6 inches off the ground, making entering and exiting the boxes incredibly easy and safe. This is especially important when you’re loading heavy or delicate items.
  • Each container has one large out-swinging door that is secured with two butterfly clamps and a sliding hasp built to accommodate a padlock or combination lock for added security.
  • SMARTBOX always uses upfront pricing and accurate quotes—you’ll never be hit with hidden fees or charges. In fact, you can even figure out approximately how many storage containers you’ll need with our online space estimator.
