Stress-free Lancaster storage

We cover all universities and colleges in and around Lancaster, including Lancaster University, University of Cumbria, Lancaster & Morecambe College, and Lancaster University Management School. 

Despite its rural location, Lancaster is a fun city for students. Whether grabbing a coffee in a hip new cafe, watching the latest cinema release, or taking in some culture, there are endless things to see and do. Exams and deadlines can be overwhelming, so it's essential to wind down when you can.

Another way to ease stress is by letting us store your possessions between terms. Our storage facilities are clean, secure, and dry. You can book online at your convenience from any device. All you need to do is pack your belongings and concentrate on fun things like meeting friends or planning a summer holiday!

How much does storage in Lancaster cost?


Our storage services start from*:

19p per day


That's an outstanding:

£1.30 per week

*based on storing our Standard size box. Please note: a minimum £84 charge applies.

I needed some large items put into storage (student removals) that I would collect five weeks later when I had access to a car and was completing my move. Seven Seas Worldwide were well-priced, punctual and very communicative. The materials they provided were excellent and did the job perfectly. The staff, both on the phone and at the warehouse, were friendly and helpful. I have no reservations over my experience with Seven Seas Worldwide and would recommend them to anyone, especially for students.



What kind of boxes are available?

Our high-quality boxes are designed to protect your possessions during long storage periods. Your student effects will remain dry and clean in our double-walled, chemically-hardened cardboard boxes.

Available in Large and Standard sizes (see underneath for dimensions), we recommend ordering more than you need. If you have any boxes left in brand-new condition, we'll collect them at no extra cost. Specially-shaped containers are also available for larger items, like skis and guitars.

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