One of the best things about the holiday season is having your kids come home from school. They come back, loaded down with their new-found experiences and confidence, to spend time with parents, siblings, and friends — not to mention a bag or two of laundry! They also come home with a list of things they’ll need to make the spring semester better, more comfortable, and more productive. What’s the best way to send items back with your student for the spring semester?
Boston Student Moves
A changing class schedule means your students might need items that they had no need for in the fall. Musical instruments and computer equipment are difficult items to move — especially if you’re sending your student back to school on a bus, flight, or other public transport. How will they handle bringing back large or fragile items? Even if your student has their own car, there’s no guarantee that they have enough room to transport their own pc or printer safely.
Factor in challenging winter weather, busy schedules that may not allow parents the time off needed to personally deliver the items to your student, and the distances involved, and suddenly bringing ‘just a few more things’ back to school becomes a big challenge.
The solution is to work with a Boston packing and shipping company that specializes in small moves. Many moving companies have a minimum load size: they’re not in business to help you ship an upright bass, computers, or a few pieces of scientific equipment. Select a company that has no minimum load size requirement.
Many students choose to spend a semester abroad, studying in another country. If this is true for your student, you want to work with a packaging and shipping company with proven experience with overseas shipping. Customized packaging solutions are essential to ensure your student has what they need, when they need it.
