student luggage and delivery solutions

Our students often need assistance with transporting their luggage and possessions, either to a new school or back home, when they finish their course.  They also often require a storage service over the long holidays if they do not wish to take all their belongings home and their school does not have any storage facilities. Bright World does not have its own storage facility, nor do we ask our host families to store for us but we are pleased to offer the following services to our students in cooperation with storage4students.com:

  • Collection and delivery of luggage within the UK
