Getting ready to move for college is one of the most exciting milestones in someone’s life. If you’re like me, when moving around furniture isn’t an issue. Between the dorm I lived in freshman year and my current apartment that came fully furnished , moving is mainly about transporting all of my clothes. Moving is about renting a small trailer or cargo van that can fit all the boxes of clothes, kitchen gear, or school books that wouldn’t all fit in my car.
College Moving Supplies:
Here are the essential moving supplies you can expect to need for a typical 1-2 bedroom move into temporary storage:
- (1) Packing Paper (10lb. pack)
- (1) Paper Tape (55 yard roll)
- (3) Medium boxes
- (4) Small boxes
- (1) 5″ Mover’s Stretch Plastic Wrap
- (2) Large Boxes
- (1) Extra-Large Box
- (1) Utility Knife
If you’re well prepared for your move, the process can be a blast. Remember: well packed items can be unloaded faster!
