Our robust student storage containers and packing materials

It's easy to amass lots of student possessions without realising it! So, we've created sturdy boxes with plenty of room for all your belongings, such as clothes, books and ornaments. Our containers are made from chemically hardened, double-walled cardboard to fully protect your student effects.

Our most popular student storage boxes are Large and Standard (see underneath for dimensions). We suggest ordering more than you think you need. Then, if there're any leftovers in a new and unused condition, we'll collect them for free. Specially-shaped containers made from the same materials are available for large items such as skis and golf clubs.

You can use your own 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 belongings. We recommended hiring a packing service to safely wrap and pack all your stuff. Otherwise, set aside plenty of time and follow our helpful guides
