College Students: Click Store and Score!

Student

April 4, 2013

College Student Click & Save!
Spring is in the air and the college school year is quickly coming to an end. At the end of each college year, students have to pack up their books, personal items, electronics, furniture and all the other stuff that they have acquired during the school year. All of this will then need to be transported back home, only to have to repack the items to return college in the fall. Instead of the constant transport and transfer of these items during the spring and fall, many college students choose to rent a storage unit near their university.  Placing dormitory or school apartment items in storage is also a great idea for students and faculty that are traveling out of the country for the summer (or even traveling during the school semesters). For soon-to-be college graduates, the time after graduation is a time of great change. If you are moving to a new city to start a job, you might not have the room for all of the items that you had in your college apartment.  The best option is to rent a storage unit to place your college items until you have your new place set up, then you can move your stored items. Renting a self storage unit for your summer storage is very convenient and low in cost, which is perfect for the college student. ezStorage offers month-to-month rentals on all of their storage units at a very special price for college students, making self storage a great and easy option.  It is important to choose the right type of storage unit for your needs. Choose a storage facility that is close to your university so you will be able to easily access your items when you need them. If you are just storing clothes, kitchen items and lower-cost furniture, it would be okay to rent a non-climate controlled storage unit. However, if you are storing electronics, higher-end furniture or antiques, then spend a bit extra money to protect your items by placing them in a climate controlled storage unit. Placing your college items in the right self storage facility will give you peace of mind that your items are safe and secure during the summer break. There are quite a few colleges and universities in the Maryland, Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. area. ezStorage has storage units available for the storage needs of college students and faculty. Starting April 1, 2013 through June 30, 2013, college students and faculty can take advantage of a great promotion to store during the summer months:  “Click, Store and Score”.

Showater. The Eastern Division is very tight with all of the teams having good line-ups and pitching. But, it will all come down to which team stays healthy throughout the season and can make it intact to the playoffs. The Orioles play at Oriole Park at Camden Yards . This stadium, which opened in 1992, was the first of its kind of “strictly baseball” stadiums and ushered in the design strategies for new baseball stadiums for the next generation. The Orioles will open up their season in Tampa Bay against the Devil Rays on April 2, 2013. The home opener at Camden Yards is against the Minnesota Twins on Friday, April 5, 2013 at 3:05pm. In an area with two baseball teams, it is easy to have loyalties to a certain team. But, luckily, ezStorage is in an area with a National League and an American League team. ezStorage supports both teams and wishes them a successful 2013 season!
