How our professional packing, storing and freighting service works


We understand it may not always be convenient or possible to pack yourself and a professional packing service is needed!

Just fill out our online form and we will make all the necessary arrangements for you. We can then arrange to store your belongings or send them back to you!

With a video call available between you and the Student Storage Experts supervisor who is packing your room, our team will put themselves in your shoes (not literally) and pack to the highest standard.

We can then arrange to store your belongings or send them back to you!

To enquire today and receive your bespoke quote, please click one of the buttons below. You will be asked for the details of your packing requirements along with addresses and dates.

Please fill this in as comprehensively as possible and add as much detail in the comments section as you can.

The collection date should be your preferred date as these dates need to be agreed with your accommodation managers. You will be asked for a return date so please use your best date estimation for your return back to the UK. If the date alters by 7 days either way then we do not charge or refund. If the 7 days is exceeded then we will refund or charge either way.

Please ensure you declare any items that are considered to be valuable. We provide £100 of insurance for each box or piece of luggage stored with us.

You will receive confirmation that the order has been placed and we will contact you with a confirmed packing date once this has been agreed with your accommodation managers.

You will receive an email prior to the packing day to inform you when it will be taking place

If you require a WhatsApp call to identify items in communal areas or for peace of mind then we are happy to call you.

Packing on average takes an hour so we can’t provide this service for the duration but it can be used to ensure the packing of sensitive or valuable items etc.

Once the packing is complete all boxes and luggage will be sealed securely and labelled. You will be sent the details of the packing including the quantities of boxes and luggage that are required to be stored with us or delivered to you.

For peace of mind, we employ staff who are vetted by Leicestershire Police and we will take all the necessary precautions to pack your belongings securely and treat your belongings with care and respect.


We will attach an invoice for the packing & storage period and this has to be paid within 7 days of the notification.

Your items will be stored in a secure commercial storage facility that is staffed 24 hrs and has CCTV.

We return your items to your new address when you go back to University. Please confirm your return date as soon as you know in order that we can return your belongings on your preferred date.

Freighting (international and UK)

We will attach an invoice for the packing service and this has to be paid within 7 days of the notification.

Once we have received this initial payment we will retrieve a quote from either ParcelForce or DHL (Both we have highly discounted rates) to ship your belongings for you to confirm.

Please note when making your booking, we will send you an example price prior to packing, to give you an idea on costs.

We will attach an invoice for the freighting costs and this has to be paid within 7 days of the notification.

Once we have received this we will book your belongings in for collection the next working day!

Customer Reviews

Shoukry 25/05/21

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.

Excellent Service

I am writing this mail to convey and express my heartfelt gratitude to your company for the excellent customer service offered to me during this tough phase of Covid-19. I want to inform you that all my boxes reached me in good condition and I was able to retrieve all of my stuff from the UK, thanks to your company. I would like to specially mention and thank Ms. Anna for demonstrating courtesy of the highest order and for being in constant touch with me to provide relevant updates. Your company is lucky to have such a dedicated and hardworking employee. It was truly a remarkable experience and I would highly recommend your company to all students in the Loughborough area.

All the best
Keep up the good work.

Thanks and Regards

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!
