Why college students need to store their items

We have a few basic reasons why you as a student should store your items with us this semester. For 11 reasons why college students should store their things in NYC, click here.

Nowhere to keep it between semesters

Typically, students are not allowed to keep their things in their rooms while away for long breaks. Owners have their reasons for doing this. Typically they don’t want to be held responsible if your items are lost, stolen, or destroyed. It can be a headache to move your items between this time, but with Moishe’s, it doesn’t have to be. Here are other helpful tips for dorm room storage.

Short term leases available

We offer short-term subscriptions for you if you only need a space for a short time. We offer month to month options because we know you as a student may not need it for that long. If you need it for longer, we offer specials that give a discount for a longer term.

Moishe’s can move your things for you

You have enough stress to worry about when it comes to college. Moving your items doesn’t have to be stressful. We will move your stuff for you, no matter how much stuff you have as a college student.

If you commit to a specific length of time with us and have a unit at a specific size, you can have free pickup. Check out the details here!

What size unit college students need

Here’s a list of the sizes you could need as a college student:

  • 5X5. This is the smallest size you may need. It’s not, however, the smallest size we have available. With a twin bed, dresser, nightstand, and other small items, your things should fit just fine.
  • 5X7. This is the next size up. If you have everything above as well as a shelf, a floor mat, and more boxes, you’ll probably need this size.
  • 5X10. This is probably the largest size you’ll need. All the things above plus a desk, a chair, and clothes will all fit in this space.
