Avoid These Common College Student Storage Mistakes

Not Researching What Kind of Storage Your Items Require

Are you storing sensitive items? You probably want temperature control to avoid damage like rust or mold. Storing a large load? A drive-up storage unit makes unloading from your moving vehicle simple. You can use our online storage calculator to figure out what size storage unit you need, and our helpful storage experts can match you with the appropriate amenities for your items.

Declining Additional Protection for Your Items

You should always be getting storage insurance for your rental, even if you are just renting a small storage unit. Bowman Plains Self Storage has plenty of plans to pick from that will fit your budget.

Packing Recklessly

The nicer you treat your items when packing, the better chance they make it out of the moving/storage process. Make sure you use quality packing supplies and include padding in each box. The contents of the box should not be able to move around and knock into each other.
