Welcome back to your Long Island moving company moving tips blog! Last time Charles Wood and Son Moving & Storage provided our local college freshmen with tips for moving into their dorm. This week we consider students moving back to college to live off-campus.
Students decide to move off-campus for any number of reasons. Popular reasons are to save money and take the next step toward living more independently as young adults. Whatever the reasons, parents will most likely have concerns and questions. We suggest this article on College Parents of America-Should My College Student Live Off-Campus? The whole site is a fabulous resource covering a myriad of topics for parents of college students.
So here you are in August ready to move off-campus. Off-campus housing brings unique moving needs and can be more complicated than moving into a dorm. There are so many different factors involved depending on the type of housing you choose. Are you moving into an apartment or house? First floor or higher? Are you renting the space furnished or will you need to furnish it? Whether it is furnished or not, you will certainly be bringing more along with you than you could bring to a dorm. Will you need to hire a Long Island Moving Company?
Most college moves are fairly easily handled without hiring movers. Usually a few friends and small truck will suffice. If you are moving yourself, be sure to check out our packing tips for information on packing supplies and packing methods.
If your off-campus move involves more than you want to handle on your own, Charles Wood & Son Moving & Storage is the Long Island Moving Company with affordable small move solutions.
