6 TIPS FOR SUCCESSFUL MOVING
University and college students across Canada will soon be flooding back to campuses, and when they arrive, there’s all of their stuff.
John Prittie, President of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Canada shares six simple steps to ensure easy moving.
1. Pack Right, Pack Light.
The dorms aren’t very big and there isn’t much room for clutter.
Try to only pack the essentials with a few decorative items such as pictures of family and high school friends to make it feel more like home.
2. Wheels Make the Job Easier.
Take a cart or box dolly to help you unload and move items from your car or van to the residence.
3. Items of A Feather, Pack Together.
Pack similar belongings together; it makes unpacking on arrival much easier.
4. Pack your Tools.
Buy a tool kit once you get to campus, or bring one from home, because you never know what you might have to put together, take apart or fix.
5. Survival of the Fittest.
A First Aid kit is always helpful. But make sure you’re packing medicines and cleaning supplies separate from your other items.
6. Recycle Your Materials.
Make sure to break your boxes down and pack them away in a safe and dry place so you can use them when it’s time to move out. If you don’t want to purchase boxes, rent totes instead. Totes stack so they get the job done well and can be picked up or returned after a move.
