Squeezing into a tiny dorm room in Sacramento? You need self storage. Going home for summer vacation and wondering where you should keep your stuff? You need self storage. In the process of transferring from American River College to California State University Sacramento? Yep, you guessed it: You need self storage. 

If you’re a student at American River College, California State University Sacramento, University of California Davis, Sacramento City College, Cosumnes River College or another nearby school, renting a storage unit at Storelocal McClellan Park can make your life easier. Storelocal McClellan Park serves the Sacramento area, including the communities of North Highlands, Citrus Heights, Antelope, Arden-Arcade, Davis and beyond. Our storage facility at 5030 Luce Avenue is just three miles from American River College and 10 miles from California State University Sacramento. 

Before you rent online, brush up on our top five storage tips for college students in Sacramento.

Climate Control for Summer Storage 

It is surprisingly hot during the summer months in Sacramento. If you’re leaving for summer vacation, don’t let your stuff fry in your storage unit. Rent a storage unit near North Highlands with climate control. This type of storage keeps the temperature and humidity inside your storage unit at a safe level. If you’re storing electronics, textbooks, artwork, antique furniture, a bicycle or anything else that you wouldn’t want exposed to high heat for months at a time (remember, it gets into the 90’s during summer in Sacramento), rent a storage unit with climate control.

Get a Month-to-Month Lease

Let’s say you’re a college student at American River College looking for summer storage near North Highlands. Does renting a storage unit mean you’re on the hook for the whole year? Nope, it definitely does not! You can rent a storage unit with a month-to-month lease in McClellan Park at Storelocal. Only need it for a short period of time? Not sure how long you’ll need it for? Feel like you’re going to need it for the entire four years you spend at University of California Davis? Whatever works for you works for us.

Make Your Life Easier with a Moving Truck 

Did you know that you can rent a moving truck at the same place where you rent a storage unit? At Storelocal McClellan Park, we’ve got U-Haul rentals right on-site. Save yourself the agony of begging your college roommate to let you borrow his pickup truck and rent a cheap one from us. 

Save Time—And Paper—With Online Bill Pay

Whether you’re studying abroad for the semester, going out-of-state for the summer or you just really, really don’t feel like getting out of bed in your dorm room at California State University Sacramento, it’s easy to pay your rent online at Storelocal McClellan Park.
