Local Student Storage was founded by St Andrews undergrad Harry Bremner in summer 2015. After realising that students were spending huge sums of money to take university-related items such as bedding and books home over the summer, only to ship them back to university again when the new term started, Harry had an idea to utilise a friend’s attic just outside of town so that students could have an option to keep some items local to the university instead of having to take them home. Thus, the idea for Local Student Storage was born. Armed with a basic understanding of web development, a phone and a van, the first storage season comprised of 17 students using the service. Since then, the company has grown to service thousands of students across 5 cities in the UK, partnering with local warehouse and logistics teams to ensure that our service stays true to our name.
LSS has always stood out as a student-oriented service. We know that moving out can be stressful, and so we ensure that our service is not only easy and transparent, but always friendly. We strive to be the first choice for students as well as the most affordable option, and we price match on each and every competitor. Our company is constantly evolving with the aim to offer a product that is superior to the competition in more ways than just pricing.
We have built a lot of tech into our service, and our drivers now use an app which optimises their daily route using machine learning methods and sends constant updates to the student on the day of their order to make the service even more seamless. You will receive updates when your order has been confirmed, when the van team has left the warehouse on the day of your booking and, in a fashion similar to Amazon, will allow you to track the driver as well as receiving a confirmation, along with a photo of your items, when the order has been completed.Book Now
Our service is more affordable than shipping your items home over the summer and then back again when you return to university. We make sure of that.
All items are stored in secure, 24-hour CCTV monitored premises. True to our name, each warehouse is local to the university that it services.
We have developed the most stream-lined and efficient student storage platform on the market, integrating machine learning methods into our Driver App allowing students to track every movement on the day of their order.
Our 'Manage Booking' section allows you to update your order as and when you like, up to 48h before we are due to fulfil the order. Change the date, time and address as well as the number of items being stored.
