What student storage boxes and packing materials are available?

It's easy to accumulate more and more household belongings while studying. No matter how much space you need, we have the solution. We provide boxes made from double-walled, chemically-hardened cardboard. Available in Large and Standard sizes (see underneath for dimensions), we suggest ordering more boxes than you think you need. If you have any unused containers still in brand-new condition, we'll collect them for free.

Specially-shaped boxes are also available for large goods, such as skis and guitars. Before collection, please securely prepare your items so we can transport them to our depot for packing.

You may use your own storage containers. But please avoid laundry bags, plastic crates, used food boxes and bin liners, as they can break easily and damage the rest of your possessions. Consider a packing service to safely pack all your effects. Otherwise, take your time and follow our helpful packing guides
