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!
The freight cost depends on the number of items you have, as well as the weight of the items. We charge £100 to prepare, weigh and measure your items so that your belongings can be shipped and accepted by customs.
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.
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.
