Summer goes by very fast. The semester will be starting before you know it. Now is the time to finalize your back to school move preparation. Here are some helpful tips from Boston’s top student moving company:
Step #1: Learn from Last Year
The clothes you never wore, the gear you never used, and the stuff that you never even bothered unpacking last time probably doesn’t need to come to school with you. Save yourself time, space, heavy lifting and stress by being realistic about what you will and won’t need over the next three months. Common items it’s actually okay to leave behind: your printer (they have a few on campus), most kitchen appliances (dorm regulations say no), and your out of season clothing. You won’t need a lot of sundresses in Boston in November.
Step #2: Vacuum Storage Bags
A cheap and easy way to reduce the volume (but not the weight!) of the soft items you’re bringing to school, vacuum storage bags make college move in day easier. Remember to bring the pump with you, so you’ll be able to repack everything into vacuum storage bags when it’s time to come home.
Step #3: Schedule the College Movers
College movers are the Boston student life hack everyone needs to know about. Do you really want to watch your Dad with his bad back trying to carry a tote full of books and supplies all the way from where you were able to find a parking space to your new digs? No, you don’t. For a few bucks, the college movers pick up your stuff, bring it directly to your new place, and you’re good to go. Don’t wait until the very last minute to schedule, as this popular service books quickly. Secure student storage is also available, if you have more stuff than space.
