Why Self-Storage is a Good Idea for Students

Going on an extended vacation? Have an internship? Moving between residences and houses? Heading home for the summer break? It all sounds great until you realize one thing: you have nowhere to keep your things! Student storage is a seriously unaddressed issue in universities across Canada. Once that last exam is up and you’ve got one day left in your residence, that’s it. Everything you’ve bought over the course of the year is now history. It certainly isn’t all going on the airplane or that four hour car ride back home.

It doesn’t have to be this way though. Centron Self Storage recognizes this dire issue and is making an effort to reach out to those left-behind post-secondary students. We have speciality storage units designed for students that will act as a secondary closet for you. Whether you’re stuck moving between houses, leaving for home or simply have too many things for that tiny dorm room we have a unit, and supplies for you. Our Dufferin and Finch location in North York is conveniently located near York University for easy access.

This is a story that is far too typical for many York University students. John Doe has just finished his last exam. Stong residence is telling him to leave the next day at noon. This is totally fine though, because John has his internship in the UK to look forward to. But wait- what about all of his furniture, books, clothes, etc? Should he pay $600 a month for a room in the York University village? Centron Self Storage provides an alternate, affordable solution. We are currently offering 25% off for all students.

Self-storage is a good idea for students that require temporary safe keeping: Whether it’s an extra closet to keep your winter gear, or a space for summer travellers, it is an affordable option.

Why clutter: When used as a permanent storage space, you effectively avoid living in a room full of a hoarded items. You can keep old work, furniture, clothes, video game systems, posters, or anything. This is a great idea if you think about your future when you have a larger living space.

Self-storage helps you maintain your privacy: When you choose to rent a space with Centron Self Storage you are renting a home away from home. You will be able to keep all of your private things in your own ‘private island’.

Access your stuff when you need it: Our facility is designed for easy access throughout the day. You will be able to gather your items when it is convenient for you.

With our incredible 25% off student special and convenient location, choosing Centron Self Storage is a great option for every young adult. Our nifty storage calculator will help you determine how much space you need. Store your problems away with Centron Self Storage.
