Storage & Shipping for Students in Sheffield


Self Storage for Sheffield Students from MCR Self Storage

There aren’t many things that The University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam students agree on – but one thing every student in South Yorkshire knows is that finding somewhere safe and secure to keep your belongings during holidays is more difficult than it needs to be.

First there’s finding a self storage centre within easy reach, then you need to get a van, then the van needs to be loaded, driven and unloaded, then you need to load your storage unit, then return the van…

Oh, and look forward to doing that all in reverse at the start of next term. Surely there’s a better way?

There is. Mobile self storage for students. We bring a boxes to you, you pack at your flat or student halls, and then we take the boxes and any additional items to our storage centre until you need it redelivering. Quick, simple and without the added expense of vehicle hire.


Packing Boxes:  We deliver boxes to you measuring 57cm x46cm x 36cm. Fill the boxes, load we'll load them into our vehicle, then let us do the rest.

Security: All the items coming into storage are databased. Our storage centre contains CCTV and alarm systems to keep your items safe.

Collection & Delivery: No need for vehicle hire. We collect your items, we deliver your items. You won’t need to move further than your doorway.

Shipping: If you’re moving on from Sheffield, we’ll use our courier contacts to deliver your items anywhere in the world.
