What storage boxes and packing materials do we offer students?

It can be tempting to buy more and more things for your student accommodation. Over time, this can add up. So, we designed robust packing boxes to protect your items during storage. Our containers are made from double-walled, chemically-hardened cardboard, keeping your household effects safe and dry. 

Available in Large and Standard sizes (see underneath for dimensions), we suggest ordering more than you think you need. If you have any containers left in brand-new condition, we'll collect them at no extra charge. Specially-shaped containers are also available for large items such as surfboards and guitars. 

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