How Does It Work?

How Much Does It Cost?

We have an initial offer where we provide 4 boxes (sizes below) and your first 4 weeks storage at £20. After the initial 4 weeks we charge £5 per week for the remainder of the time you have your belongings in storage, (for the 4 boxes) this includes insurance as well (as documented in the T&C's). Should you require more boxes we charge an extra £1 per week per box provided. Packing materials can be arranged at the cost of £2 for a roll of bubble wrap and £2 for a roll of packing tape.

We can also store other items such as bikes, small furniture, instruments etc. These are £2.50 per week, per item.

The sizes of the boxes are: 18" x 18" x 20"

Pick-Up & Redelivery

We pick up and deliver to addresses in York. We understand that you may move during your study years and can pick up and drop off at different addresses if we know in advance.

We tend to pick up and drop off in bulk to make it cost effective. We will let you know the dates nearer the time to arrange. We can pick up/deliver at a different time/date but there will be an additional cost of £10 for this.

Additional Benefits

We can also store bicycles, suitcases and guitars - for other items that do not fit in a box it is best to contact us. Have full peace of mind knowing your personal belongings are kept secure in a suitable environment. No matter whether its half term or the summer break we can look after your belongings.

As a local company we have full flexibility in being able to access your items when needed - they will be in the boxes, just as you packed them!

How To Pack Guide

How to make sure possessions are packed safely and securely for storage, failure to adhere to these instruction may lead to insurance been invalid.

  1. Secure the bottom of your box by taping all open seams and corners.
  2. Build a cushion base by lining the inside of the box with bubble wrap or packing peanuts.
  3. Individually wrap each item with bubble wrap, packing paper, newspaper or towels. Add additional material around thin areas, such as stems on wine glass or handles on mugs. Secure with tape to ensure the protective material stays intact.
  4. Carefully place wrapped items in the box, starting with the heaviest on the bottom and the lightest at the top.
  5. Fill any empty space in the box with packing peanuts, towels or paper to prevent breakables from moving around. This includes adding a layer to the top prior to sealing the box.
  6. Seal the top of the box with tape and label each box as "fragile". This will remind anyone handling the boxes to be careful when transporting or stacking.
  7. If you have electrical items in storage please make sure that batteries and ink cartridges are removed (in the case of laptops, printers etc) and that lids are taped shut.
