Moving Tips for College Students
You’ve finally picked out your perfect college and are ready to begin your life for the next four years away from your family and high school friends. You have all of your dorm décor picked out and you’re ready to move. Right? Packing up and moving your whole life to fit in one tiny dorm room can be overwhelming to think about. Where do you even begin to start packing up everything that you own? Well, at Vincent Fister Moving & Storage, we’re here to help you through the process every step of the way. We’re going to give students their very first college assignment: a crash course in moving to college.
So what’s the first step? Well you can start by deciding what’s essential. Since dorm rooms are relatively small, there won’t be much room for all of your belongings. That means that you have to condense and decide on items that can stay at home versus items that you absolutely can’t live without. And once you’ve done this, then you can get started on packing up these essential items into boxes or bins.
When you go to load up your car or truck, you really have to think about how to fit everything efficiently. According to Lehigh Valley Style, you want to make as little trips back and forth as possible. And if you’re going to college somewhere far from home, you can really only take one trip anyway! That’s why it’s important to condense your belongings and pack smaller items inside of larger ones in order to take up less space.
Don’t Be Afraid to Ask For Help
As they say, two heads are always better than one. And in this case, two sets of hands are even better. Moving into some place brand new can be stressful and unnerving, especially if you’re going at it alone. That’s why you shouldn’t be afraid to turn your move-in day into a family affair. Ask your mom, dad, sister, brother or even friends to help you move heavy furniture and big boxes. This will not only make the moving process go by much more quickly, but it’ll make it much easier on you. No one particularly likes moving, but make it worthwhile to whoever lends you a hand. Maybe bribing your helpers with some pizza afterward might sweeten the deal a little bit.
This part of move in is probably a favorite for girls, and maybe a task for mom. But décor is important because it transforms your new dorm into a home to live in for the next nine months. According to Mostly Morgan, remember to use sticky tack instead of nails to hang picture frames and canvases as most dorms have strict rules against putting holes into dorms walls.
We hope that these moving tips for college students were helpful for those of you getting ready to begin their four-year journey ahead. For all of your moving needs, Vincent Fister Moving & Storage is proud to serve Lexington, Kentucky and all of the surrounding areas.
