At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK we are pros at relieving your moving stress. If you are packing up to move away for school, follow a few of our helpful tips to make things easier.
1)Pack like items together. Moving to school can be a little overwhelming so the more organized you are the better. Label your boxes so you can unpack and keep your new place tidy at the same time.
2)Pack smart. We know you are a smart cookie…you are heading off to school. Don’t overstuff your boxes and remember the heavier the items the smaller the box.
3)Try to use original packing for any large electronics. Especially your shiny new computer.
4)Start packing early. Pack your non essentials first to make a dent in your packing task.
5)Don’t pack doubles. Get in touch with your roommates and organize who will be bringing what. No point in packing 5 frying pans.
6)Use wardrobe boxes. We can easily transfer from your closet into the wardrobe box and then directly into your new closet.
7)Use the right supplies, it is worth the small investment before your move to save you some money on your actual move day. Unlike the mismatched grocery store boxes, garbage bags and laundry bins our boxes will stack and move more efficiently.
Bonus Tip: the boxes can be broken down and stored under your bed until move out day.
