“So I’ve got a great opportunity to go to Australia with my best friend,” said Lauren. “She’s working on a documentary, and has invited me to tag along.” Lauren, who has a life long love of animals, wants to jump at the chance. “There’s only one problem. The weekend we’re supposed to leave is the same weekend my daughter needs to be out of her college housing.”
Don’t forgo the things you want to do just because your children have their own to-do list. Part of raising children is trusting that they’ve got the skills and capabilities to handle complicated tasks like college moves on their own. And let’s be real here – if you know that’s not exactly within the realm of realistic possibility for your kid, you can still hire a professional moving company to handle all the hassles for you.
Here’s what you need to know about hiring a Boston student moving company: first, you want a real professional moving company, not just a couple of guys with a truck. That way you’re protected against your kid’s stuff getting lost, broken, or stolen. You want to ask to make sure the company’s fully insured: accidents can and do happen, but when the right insurance is in place, you don’t wind up having to buy all of your kid’s stuff twice.
Second, ask about what services the moving company offers and minimum load charges. You know your kid. If they need someone to actually go in and pack boxes for them, this can be done, generally for a charge. The less your kid needs in terms of packing assistance, the more affordable this is going to be – and that’s good news, because you’re going to want cash to buy some amazing souveniers during your Australia adventure.
