Clearing Out The Classroom: End Of The School Year Storage Solutions For Teachers
Summer is just around the corner which means kids will soon be deserting the classroom until the start of the next school year. While students (And many educators!) are rejoicing at the prospect of being out of school for a few months, for teachers this time of the year means tying up lots of loose ends, finishing up final grades, and clearing out their classroom. That last part can be a real struggle for teachers who are lacking a static classroom, ample storage space and are displeased with the idea of cluttering up their homes with all of the stuff still currently taking up space in their classroom.
There are storage solutions out there though available to teachers that provide convenience and one less thing for them to worry about as the school year comes to a close. One of these ideal storage solutions for school supplies and classroom fixtures is Zippboxx! Zippboxx is an on demand storage company that handles all of the logistics of getting things that need to be put into storage, safely put into storage.
For educators who do not have adequate storage space available in their classrooms, on demand storage is the perfect, most convenient, storage solution. The same goes for teachers who do not have permanent classrooms. Some schools assign teachers new classrooms each year which means that teacher then does not have a fixed space to call their own. When it comes time for those teachers to pack up all of their things at the end of the academic year, they need a secure place to store those school supplies.
Secure storage space is paramount to teachers who often have to dip into their own pockets for school supplies because of insufficient funding in the education system. With Zippboxx, teachers can rest assured that their school supplies and fixtures are packed away appropriately in a secure, clean storage facility. Whether it be textbooks, art supplies, a back supported swivel chair, or anything in between, educators don’t have to fret about their classroom gear getting lost or damaged.
When you’re dealing with self-storage units, oftentimes you’re paying for a lot more space than you actually need. Just think of all of that horizontal and vertical space that is going unused but that you’re paying for anyway! With different storage space sizes available to choose from, no matter how much stuff was crammed into that classroom, there is an appropriate storage space size available to rent at Zippboxx.
Unsure of how much storage space you’ll need for your classroom belongings? A 5′ x 5′ storage space will fit the contents of a walk-in closet, a 5′ x 10′ storage space will fit the contents of a studio apartment, and a 5′ x 15′ storage space will fit the contents of a small one bedroom apartment. Take a look at our, “How Much Storage Space Do I Need?” blog post for more guidance in regards to picking out the right storage space size for your stuff.
The end of the school year is one of the busiest times of the year for teachers. From editing essays, to determining final grades, to writing reference letters for students heading off to college, a teacher’s to-do list is never blank. For teachers who are scrambling to get everything they need to get done accomplished in what little time they have left to do so, help is available.
Instead of investing a large chunk of time packing up your classroom, let someone else do it! You can sit back and continue to grade papers and tests while a Zippboxx team member gathers up your classroom items, packs them away safely (However you want them packed!) and transports them into storage.
Don’t worry about loading up your car and lugging all of your necessities for the next school year into your classroom. Zippboxx delivers! All teachers need to do is log-in to their account through the Zippboxx website and select what date and time they’d like to have their classroom things brought to school. Just give 24-48 hours notice!
Stocking up your classroom a little bit at a time? Not a problem! With a barcoded and photographed inventory of your items in storage with us, Zippboxx can deliver back specific bins/boxes and fixtures when you need them. Then, when you’re ready for more stuff to be delivered, just log-in to your account again, select what you want delivered, and schedule a delivery date and time frame.
