College Storage Tips

  • Reserve your Belchertown MA storage unit now! Give us a call and we will save your ideal storage unit for when you are ready to move in.
  • Defrost the refrigerator and drain the water. Always store your mini fridge in the upright position so oil does not leak.
  • Use small boxes for books. Putting too much weight will make it difficult to carry and save you the headache of broken boxes and your items falling through the bottom.
  • Wrap fragile items with bubble wrap and packing material. This will help keep them safe and secure until you need them. We sell moving supplies in our office! Pick up locks and other important storage supplies.

Make the transition from school to home a little easier with Amherst Self Storage. We offer drive up storage options in a variety of storage sizes.
