Self Storage Tips for College Students
Dorm closing for the summer?  Need Temporary Storage?  Never used Storage before?  Don't know how to store belongings to keep them safe during the Summer months?

If any of the above apply to you, look no further.  Southern Safe Storage has all you need!  The knowledge to get your belongings in the correct unit size, the pricing to beat the competition, the customer service that will make you want to return and the security that will leave your mind at ease.  


  • You want to make sure that you get a space that is big enough to hold your belongings.  Visit to see our visual size guides.  
  • Look for month to month rental.  No need to sign a 6 month contract if you only need 3 months of storage.  Southern Safe Storage offers month to month rentals.
  • Do NOT store clothes in plastic bags!  Repeat, Do NOT store clothes in plastic bags!
  • Climate controlled storage is necessary in some situations, but do you really need it?  Climate controlled storage has its place but it also comes with a hefty price tag.
  • Don't fall for $1 rent first month or first month free.  Read the fine print.  Do the math.  Are you actually benefiting from the "deal" or is it actually costing you more?
  • Visit your facility.  Is it safe?  How is the lighting?  Talk to the owners.  Ask questions.  Is the company locally owned and operated?  If you have a problem, could you reach an owner locally?
Even if you aren't leaving town for summer, a self-storage may help you organize your dorm room or apartment.  Southern Safe Storage can keep your belongings safe, yet accessible, so you can us them any time.  Visit to reserve a storage unit today and kickback and enjoy your summer!
