There are a whole host of things you’ll learn during your college years, but one thing that’s nearly universal for all college students is learning how to move frequently. When you first head off to college, you may be forced to live in a dorm. After the first year, you may be required to move to a different dorm or opt to move off campus to an apartment. At this point, it’s nearly impossible to predict what could happen. Your roommates may move away, forcing you to find a new place to live, rent may increase, or you may want to transfer schools. Moving a lot during college can be exhausting, but we’ve put together a few tips to help you out.
As a college student, chances are, you’re looking for any way you can to flex your creativity. Assuming there’s nothing reckless about your ideas, a little creativity can go a long way in making a move a little easier. For example, if you’re moving out of or into a ground-level apartment, you may be able to transfer your things through a window or sliding glass door in order to cut down on the time it takes to walk with one box all the way from your room to the car. If not, you can still walk the box to the door and have someone else take it to the car.
Get Rid of Things You Don’t Need
If you’re still in college, it’s safe to say you’re going to move again before it’s time to graduate so there’s no sense in keeping things around that you don’t need. College students tend to fill every bit of space they have available to them and collect a lot of school merchandise that can be a little overwhelming at times. If there’s anything you have in your dorm that you don’t need, first see if your parents or a friend can hang on to them until you have some more room to work with.
Don’t Forget To Clean
Always remember to clean up the apartment after you leave. Most apartment complexes, especially those near a college campus, are very strict about their policies and will take money from your security deposit for any reason they see fit. If you’re able to secure your full security deposit from your last apartment, you’ll have a nice head start on paying your first month’s rent at your new place.
Contact A Moving Company
The best thing you can do for yourself when you’re overwhelmed with a college move is to contact professional movers. Not only will movers help you cut down on the time it takes to bring things to your car, but you won’t have to take multiple trips. This will save you a lot of time, money, and hassle and you’ll have someone to rely on the next time you need to move.
