The semester doesn’t really start until the phone calls come:
“Mom! I forgot my hair dryer, my green notebook, and my MP3 player for the gym. I need them all like yesterday! Can you send them to me?”
“It’s so cold here! I need you to send me more blankets and all of my warm clothes!”
“You let me forget so much stuff! I’m emailing you a list and you’ve got to send it all up here to me!”
It is as this point that the Boston parent has two choices. The first choice is to let your children develop those problem solving skills they’ll need when you’re not around to ship them everything they’ve forgotten. There is an advantage to this decision: you’re encouraging resiliency and responsibility in your children. There is a disadvantage to this decision: you’ll get approximately 47 million texts, emails, and calls from your kid asking where, exactly, their stuff is.
The second choice is to bow to the inevitable and figure out the quickest, most cost-effective, safest way to ship things to your college student. Make life quick and simple for yourself. Stop by your Boston pack and ship company. They’ll handle everything. Hand over the hair dryer, the notebook, and the MP3 player: they’ll make sure these items arrive without being damaged. Proper packing is key: your Boston pack and ship company has the boxes and perfect packing materials right on hand.
Shipping can be expensive, especially when you’re talking about bulky, weighty items like bedding and clothes. Your Boston shipping store will help you find the most cost effective ways to ship things to your college student.
Did your kid forget practically everything? Your best option may be to arrange for a student move. Student moves are ideal for shipping small households: if your college student needs furniture, computer equipment, musical instruments, and more, talk to your Boston shipping company about the student move option. Student moves have no minimum size requirements, so you’re not paying for services or space you don’t need!
