How many additional items you would like to store.
 
From your own boxes and suitcases to larger items such as musical instruments and bikes, there’s not a lot we don’t store!
 
Add the dates you would like us to collect and return to you and our system quickly calculates the total cost you pay.

The price includes collection and return, packing materials and insurance.

You can get your price in under 2 minutes on any device.

What people say about us

I used the Student Storage Experts to store my university stuff for the summer.  They delivered boxes for me to pack my things and then collected them on the morning I chose.  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.

Dhanya

Leicester Uni, 2018

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

Jennifer

Parent, 2017

I needed university student storage when the term had finished. The Student Storage Expert’s pricing was really clear and the morning/afternoon delivery and collection booking was much better than anywhere else. Also you don’t need to buy boxes, you can give them things you’ve stored in your own which is a bonus.

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!

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.

all my washing stuff was gone, food gone, some decorations gone, my sheets and pillows were dirty when they came back, mix shoes and clean towels so that I can't use the towels

Good Morning,
Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback.

Unfortunately, as stated in our terms & conditions, we cannot pack items such as cleaning products, food & liquids. This is to avoid and of your other belongings being damaged during storage.
With regards to decoration, if we are instructed in advance, during the video call or it clearly belongs to the individual & not the University we will pack these items. The last thing we want to do is pack the Universities belongings and for the student to receive a bill for these items.

We packed all belongings , seal & labelled boxes while in each room to ensure nothing can fall out and become dirty such as bedsheets/ pillows etc.
Our first priorities are to pack to a high standard and hygienically. We are also keen to pack efficiently & space saving as possible to avoid any further costs for students.
We do pack shoes with other items as for transporting the box needs to be packed out and not have any loose items within.
If the shoes were dirty this would not be the case, but assuming as we have not heard anything from you directly the towels were not damaged.

We will of course, as with any review, ensure to reinstate with our team to ensure it does not occur in the future.

I wish you all the best with your studies !

Helpful, flexible and very efficient!
Student Storage Experts were recommended to me by my University since due to the Corona Pandemic I was unable to move out of my accommodation as I had already left the UK in a hurry. I contacted the company, explained my situation to them and was offered very helpful and friendly advice, a very reasonable rate for the storage of my belongings and also much help and support when it came to freighting my suitcase all the way to mainland Europe. The company is very flexible and willing to help and I would really recommend anyone who is moving - regardless of internationally or just cross-country - to get in touch with Student Storage Experts! Their website offers a lot of information and is very easy to use and to receive a reasonable quote, I’d suggest to contact them directly by email - they tend to be very responsive and quick! Students in Leicester really should go ahead and use this company as it is trustworthy and very helpful and I can guarantee a positive experience! Personally, I will definitely reach out to them again in the future!
