How Do I Store?

First things first, you’ve got to book online, or on our Facebook or Instagram page. Since you’re already here, you might as well go to the top of the page, and click shop! Book however many items you think you need for storage this summer, and maybe one extra storage box (you only get charged for what you use). We come and drop of your boxes on your selected date, and pick them up whenever you’d like them collected. Your items are then kept in a secure storage facility over summer, whilst you kick back, relax and have the summer of your life. As you come back to Edinburgh, we’ll arrange a time and date suitable for you to come and drop your belongings off.


We collect students belongings in May and the first week of June, and store until the week after Fresher’s Week 2019. Our storage return dates are Fresher’s Week and the following week. If you would like to have your items returned before or after this time frame, you will be subject to a service charge of £35 to get someone to deliver your storage.
