Student Storage Boston

Being prepared for your college move-in day is one of the best ways to get your semester started off on the right foot. That’s why our professional movers would like to extend some college packing advice that you’re sure to appreciate. Here are 5 of our favorite college packing prep tips and tricks!

1. Have books you’re carrying to college? Make sure to pack your books horizontally in
small but sturdy boxes. This ensures that the spine of your books won’t be bent or
otherwise damaged during the moving process.

2. Don’t leave yourself any extra work to do after you’re moved in! Make sure all of your clothes are nice and clean before packing them. Fold all of your clothes neatly and pack them according to clothing type. A little pre-move organization can take a load off of your shoulders once you’re settled into your dorm.

3. Keep an inventory list! Whether you’re headed to Boston University or a college on the
opposite side of the country, you’ll want to make sure that you know where everything is at all times. It would be a shame to leave something behind. Make sure your Poseidon Moving and Storage movers know exactly what they’ll be moving and give yourself a little extra peace of mind with a list.

4. When packing up heavier items like dishes, When packing up dishes please make sure to use a thicker cardboard dish bill box if available. Make sure to stuff your box with packing paper at the bottom, at all 4 sides and over the top. Make sure to wrap your fragile dishes with packing paper, or bubble wrap. Mark your box as fragile so movers are aware, and nothing heavy is being put on top of it inside the truck during the load.

5. Pack some sturdy storage bins to aid in an organization during your year. Success in college is all about organization and you might be surprised how much having a little extra storage space for miscellaneous items will help you out in dorm life.
