Robust student storage boxes and packing materials

We offer sturdy storage boxes to protect your uni effects during long storage periods. Our double-walled cardboard boxes have plenty of space for most household items, such as books and kitchenware.

Our most popular student storage boxes are Large and Standard (see underneath for dimensions). We recommend ordering more than you need. Our friendly customer service team will collect any leftover storage boxes for free if they're in brand-new condition.
