Moving to a college can be one of the most exciting, but also hardest times of your life. You might be traveling thousands of miles from home to attend your College of choice, or you might just be moving to a campus just a few miles from your parent’s house.

Moving is never easy but you lessen the burden by preparing yourself. Here are some tips to ease the Process of moving into a College dorm.

Storage

When you move into your College dorm, you will definitely need to bring things with you. Therefore, you will need to find a way to store them in an efficient manner. There are some different storage options to consider. The option that you ultimately decide on will have a lot to do with the amount of storage space you have.

Make a checklist

Write everything down the things that you know you are going to need. A few days before you decide to move to your College dorm, go down your list, pack it up, and physically check it off. It will help you see if you have everything you need. If you happen to miss something, you can go back and pack it before you leave or buy it at a supply store when you get to school

Manage your move

On your Move-in day, make sure you have all the necessary information you need and bring a copy of your final list of items (this will come in handy when you move out). Don’t forget items usually left behind, such as your cell phone and cell phone charger.

Hiring a moving company

For many students, a parent’s mini-van is simply not enough. If you’re planning to move a heck of a lot of belongings into your College dorm, you may want to consider hiring a moving company to assist you with your upcoming College move.
