Your child moving to college and that can be an exciting and challenging experience.
Are you able to get everything into a pick up truck and move it yourself or will you need help?
A few suggestions if you need help from moving professionals:
1)Is your child moving to college with a friend?
Sharing a moving truck with one or more people will save on costs.
Hiring a moving company can save you time especially if you are moving into an apartment with flights of stairs.
2) Plan ahead
If you need to hire movers, plan ahead. Moving companies book up for the end of the month.
Be prepared when you call with a list of what you need moved, addresses for loading and unloading, and contact phone numbers.
If your child is going to pack themselves, be sure everything is packed and ready to go.
Boxes should be enclosed and not weigh more than 50 lbs each.
Plastic storage bins are great for college kids. Shallow ones fit nicely under their bed for additional storage.
When they move back home, it keeps everything clean and easy to find.
Helpful hint: label what is in your storage containers so you know exactly what you have stored in them. This will be helpful when it comes time to move out again in the fall.
4) Take what you need
If your child is sharing a dorm or an apartment with another person, find out what they are bringing so to avoid having double items. College students really only need the basics.
This will save on moving costs too!
