I moved to Ireland from the US in 2016 to begin my studies in medicine in one of Dublin’s universities. I arrived with two suitcases and full of excitement ready to start my adventure. I found a place to live and quickly settled into the Dublin life.
My first day of uni left me buried under books in my small rented accommodation. Coming from a hot climate my two suitcases did not seem to include any clothing to equip me for the Irish weather so over the coming months my two suitcases quickly grew and I began to accumulate quite an amount of items.
To try and distract myself from my imminent exams that are approaching at lightning speed I decided to think about how I would spend my 3 month vacation in the summer. I booked a trip inter-railing around Europe and advised my landlord that I would be moving out after the exams. Now where on earth do I put my stuff?
I looked up sending my items back to the US so I would not have to worry about them, however the cost was sky high and would eat into my holiday budget. I went online and typed student storage into my search engine and up popped Space Storage.
The first option it gave me was a 10% discount on their current pricing once I produced my student card and they would also pick up my stuff for free. This would be great if I needed a bigger unit or had bigger items to store.
They then had two student specials that I could also choose from, they were as follows:
Option 1 Student Special – Own private storage unit 5 boxes (40cm x 40cm x 40cm approx) 3 suitcases (75cm x 55cm x 25cm approx) Insurance included up to €1000 Free pick-up (min 3 month stay) Only €45.00 per month with student card
Option 2 Student Special – Own private storage unit 10 boxes (40cm x 40cm x 40cm approx) 4 suitcases (75cm x 55cm x 25cm approx) Desk/Bike/Musical Instrument Insurance included up to €1000 Free pick-up (min 3 month stay) Only €65.00 per month with student card
I looked around my room and realized that I would need the first option so I decided to call Space and find out more. I spoke to Darren and he thanked me for calling with plenty of notice. He advised that by giving Space enough notice he can arrange the free pickup service for me for exactly when I needed it. It seems quite a lot of students chose Space Storage for their summer needs so calling early is always important. Darren booked me in for the end of May and now all I have to think about once my exams are over, is which sun cream to choose for my trip away.
Thanks Space Storage!
