We supply robust containers to ensure your student effects are secure during long storage periods. Our chemically-hardened cardboard boxes are perfect for most student belongings.

Our student storage boxes are available in Large and Standard (see underneath for dimensions). Order more than you think you need, as we offer free collection for any empty boxes left over in brand-new condition.

You can use your own containers. But please avoid laundry bags, plastic crates, food boxes and bin liners, as they break easily and could damage the rest of your belongings.
