  • Holiday Storage
    Have you thought about what will you do with your possessions over the summer holidays? Most universities, colleges and large independent student housing providers these days will ask you to fully vacate your study room for the 10 to 15 week holiday period so it can be used to house short-term students / delegates on language schools, foundation courses, corporate training, etc. but you will rarely be offered storage facilities on site. And private house owners / landlords are not much better - some of them may let you leave your possessions in your room . . . . . . . but only if you pay full rent!

    So, if you are looking for a great student storage deal with a collect-and-store service, look no further than Seven Seas Worldwide.

  • A Cubic Metre Explained
    Most storage costs are calculated on what space the things being stored will take up; this is generally expressed as a "cubic metre".

    So, what is a cubic metre? Well, it is an area 100cm x 100cm x 100cm and is equivalent to:
    • 1,000 litres (exactly); 1 litre = 0.001 m (exactly)
    • 35.3 cubic feet (approx); 1 cubic foot (1 ft) = 0.0283m (approx)
    • 1.31 cubic yards (approx); 1 cubic yard = 0.76455m (approx)

  • Storage Advice
    Planning Ahead

    • estimate the sizes of the items you want stored
    • confirm the dates for collection and re-delivery as far ahead as possible
    • arrange suitable insurance


    Packing

    • be careful not to mistakenly pack any personal valuables which you will need whilst away from university (i.e. passport, travel documents, handbag, wallet, keys, phone, etc.) as access to possessions will be very limited and these is likely to an extra charge
    • for bicycles: loosen the handlebars and rotate them so they take up less space. Remove pedals and attach to bicycle so not to lose them.
    • place items securely in boxes and tape shut to avoid losing things
    • use proper sturdy storage boxes that will not collapse
    • ideally, use the lockable / sealable crates.
    • spread heavy items about so that no boxes are overly heavy
    • wrap china and glass piece by piece. Put the heaviest items at the bottom and pad out corners and empty spaces
    • clearly mark / label all your boxes and cases with your name, university / college, halls and contact telephone numbers
    • clean out mini-fridges (leaving time to fully dry out) and tape the door closed
    • empty and dry out rice-cookers, steamers, kettles, irons etc
    • make sure all clothes, towels, flannels etc. are completely dry as these can go mouldy
