If you’re headed to college this fall, you know that move-in day is just a few short weeks away. Here’s what you should be doing now to make your 2021 Fall College Move simple and stress free:
#1: Get real about what you really need to bring with you.
While you may have closets and dresses full of clothing at home, at school, you won’t have space for that much stuff. Also, there’s a limit to what you’re really going to wear during any three months. Now’s a good time to get a handle on what you’re planning to bring to school with you. Make sure to include the essentials like socks and underwear. Check to see what autumn and early winter weather is like at the school you’re going to. On some campuses (hello, University of Florida!) packing your shorts and flip flops makes sense. On other campuses (Maine State, anyone?) you probably are going to want some cold weather gear.
#2: Call Boston Student Moving Services & get on the schedule.
Whether you’re moving to college in Boston or you’re headed out of town, the student moving services team in Boston can help you make it happen. Schedules fill up fast, especially when demand is high. The sooner you call, the sooner you secure your place on the schedule. The Boston student moving team will work with your school’s rules and routines so your things can be delivered to your student housing and set up for you.
#3: Start Packing.
Yes, really. With just a few weeks to go, you don’t want to leave college packing to the last minute. Use this time to gather up moving boxes and packing material. You may want moving blankets if you’re moving any furniture to your student housing situation. If you don’t have any of that stuff and don’t know where to find it, don’t fret: the Boston student moving services can help you. They’ll even pack for you, if you’re stressed for time.
