How does it work?
Our student storage service in detail
Short & long-term storage plans
There is a minimum period of 1 week for the student storage we offer, which is a short-term storage solution, suitable for students who are changing their address and only need temporary storage.
Even if you plan to be away from university for a longer period of time we got you covered. The long-term student storage comes with preferential rates if you become part of our Fantastic Club, where you will also benefit from free storage for 4 weeks, priority slots and so much more.
Video survey available
With a video survey, we can get a clear idea of the volume of your belongings. From there, we'll be able to adequately advise you on the size and number of storage units you need and provide you with a precise quote. The video survey is free and can be performed with any device and you don't need any specialised software. Just walk around your property and show our skilled sales representative what you need to move to the storage warehouse. After that, we'll get back to you with a price quote, based on the volume of your stuff and the duration of your student storage plan.
The Fantastic removals teams will handle every step of your student move, so you don't have to worry about anything. The local expert movers will arrive at your address, pack your possessions, load and safely transport them to the storage facility. If you need any furniture items dismantled, just let us know and the movers will handle the job for you.
When the removal professionals arrive at the storage facility, they will carefully place your belongings in the designated container. When you're ready to reclaim your belongings, the same professionals will re-deliver your possessions to your home with great care, making sure that your items’ integrity remains intact during the whole process.
High level of security and insurance
As part of the student storage service, you avail of insurance for your belongings during transportation and while in the storage facility. For extra safety and full insurance of packed items, we recommend our professional packing service. The professionals will pack any miscellaneous items in 4-ply moving boxes of suitable size. The packers will make sure no box is overfilled and all items are properly wrapped in packing paper and arranged so that the risk of damage is minimised.
All our storage warehouses are protected by a high level of physical security, including alarms, fire detection, and digitally recorded CCTV, all of which are monitored 24/7.
