What our student storage customers say about us

I used the Student Storage Experts for summer storage.  They delivered boxes for me to pack my things and then collected them on the morning I chose from my university halls.  They even called ahead to give me a rough time.  I ended up storing fewer boxes than I thought and they gave me some money back with no questions.


2022, Leicester Uni

This was perfect for our son’s student storage solutions.  The Student Storage Experts supplied two sizes of free storage boxes, packing materials and security tape and sent out labels to stick on each item going into the storage facility.  All included in the price.  There were no hiccups and I would highly recommend them for student storage.


2022, Nottingham Uni

I needed university student summer storage when the term had finished. The Student Storage company’s pricing was really clear and the collection date choice was good. Also you don’t need to buy boxes, you can give them things you’ve stored in your own which is a bonus. I found it stress free and a good service.

Our free storage boxes


Our student storage boxes come in two sizes and you can order as many as you like (or none at all and use your own).  We find that on average most students in student accommodation order and store 3 big boxes, 2 medium boxes and a suitcase.  That’s just a guide as everyone’s different and has different requirements.  Either way don’t worry about ordering too many boxes and having to pay for them.

If you find you’ve ordered more than you need, we’ll take them back when we collect your belongings and refund you their storage cost.  Win win.

Our medium boxes measure 40.7 x 40.7 x 40.7 cm.  We suggest they are used for books and smaller, heavier items.  Our big boxes measure 45.7 x 45.7 x 45.7 cm.  We suggest they are used for larger, lighter items like duvets, pillows and towels.

All our boxes come with 5m of bubble wrap, 66m of tape and tamper proof labels for peace of mind.  The maximum weight is 25kg.

The longer you store, the more discount you get!

To give you an idea with prices for 2 and 3 months storage for 3 big boxes, 2 medium boxes and a suitcase (including box delivery, collection and return and packing materials):

2 months: £169.36

3 months: £235.04

The Highlight is the Customer Service

Excellent service. Website is easy to use with all costs given upfront, and it includes packing material delivered to your address within just a few working days (including tape!). The highlight is their very prompt, friendly and helpful customer service - any queries I had were resolved quickly, and they were able to move up my collection date at request with just two days notice. Would use again and highly recommend.

Iain 17 Sep 2022

Didn't show up, zero contact
Awful experience with this company.

I put a note against my order that collection needed to be before 11am, 11am came and went with no courier and zero contact, repeated phone calls from 10.15am onwards went straight to voicemail, email was also unanswered.

In the end I had to bin the belongings I planned to put in storage and rush for my train. A needlessly stressful experience.

We are very sorry that you had a less than satisfactory experience. We did apologise for the lack of contact on the day as there was a technical issue that we were trying to resolve, with our phones. We did contact you to say that we could not meet the 11am deadline and tried to make other arrangements for you to leave your box at reception. As per our T & C's we cannot commit to specific times due to the number of orders we have and the delays often incurred but we do keep our customers informed. We have offered a very generous discount should you wish to use our business again in the future. Again, please accept our apologies and wish you well.

Your one stop destination for Storage

Student Storage Experts (SSE) has been a firm companion of mine throughout my University years at Loughborough.

My first experience with them was during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic when I had to leave the UK and left the responsibility of my belongings in the hands of SSE. They successfully packed and stored my stuff throughout the lockdown and even delivered it right to my accommodation during the start of my second year at uni.

A positive experience during an uncertain time led to me using SSE's service for the next 2 years too.

Overall, SSE's service is economically viable, trustworthy, efficient, and very student friendly, catering to custom requests.

Very thankful to Rob and his team for the constant support over the past 3 years!

Extremely understanding and reliable. Recommend for any international students

These guys have been extremely helpful with the whole process of storage and shipping my stuff to my home country. From helping me remove specific stuff from my box through video calls to just generally being very understanding and patient. Even when my stuff got accidentally shipped back to the UK. They helped me straight away with the procedures to get it back home. Definitely recommended!

Mrs Sarah Flack 15/09/21

Exemplary Storage Experience

Student Storage Experts put me at ease every step of the way, from queries, collection, storage and delivery. As an architecture student I had a significant amount of course equipment and materials to store on top of typical belongings which worried me, however this was accommodated for.

Not only that they made it possible for delivery to arrive prior to my return arrival to halls. All of my items were delivered in full and returned to me in great condition, especially my course equipment.

I highly recommend their service and expertise.
