Moving to College - NJ MoversWhen thinking abouDt students going back to college, Rodney Dangerfield’s movie “Back to School” always comes to mind, and though not all students are lucky enough to enjoy the lavish lifestyle of Thornton Melon and his son, Jason, they do have one thing in common: They’re all going to go through the same process of making their off-campus apartment or maybe dorm their new home. If you watched the movie, then you already know than after visiting his son, Melon decides it’s time for him to return to school. So what he does is that he hires some construction works and with their help he guts out a few dorm rooms in order to make sure his son and his friend, Derek Lutz, have the best home away from home. While most of the times parents will rarely go to these lengths for their kids, they do want to see them living a comfortable life as the hardworking students they are.

Instead of having to hire construction workers, Molloy can help you organize and set up this important move for your child.  Before the big move day, there are many factors you should take into consideration to insure your move is stress free.

1) Measure Your Dorm Room

If you really want to be comfortable in school, then you need to make sure you do all it takes in order to make your transition as comfortable as possible. This means before you pack all your stuff, you need to know the exact measurements of your apartment or room. If you overdo it, then some of your colleagues may end up feeling rather miserable. While it’s absolutely necessary for every student to have a computer, a fridge and maybe a TV, there are certainly some items that you don’t really need to bring along and by choosing not to you can maximize your space.

2) Packing Your Items

Now it’s time to start packing your stuff. Sure, no one likes to pack things, but we don’t have super powers to snap our fingers and have everything waiting for us at the front door, all neatly packed and ready to be picked up by the moving company. To make this step hassle free, it’s best that you hire a well reputed moving company like Molloy Many people will want to canvass the neighborhood grocery stores, thinking this way they can get some cardboard boxes easier, but at the end of the day this is going to cost you more money. One thing to keep in mind is that these boxes are where your valuables will be stored and that is why you need to ensure they’re secured properly. This way, you can have the peace of mind they’ll safely get to your desired destination.

Over the last few years, no one really drops their kids off to campus anymore and that’s because they are too crowded. Most of the times, freshmen are given first dibs regarding living in the campus. However, that comes at a cost for second semester freshmen who need to relocate to off campus apartments or housing. A as result, they’ll need a lot of help with moving to their new place. In fact, so many of them are moving every year that local moving businesses have greatly improved their revenue because of this.

So if you’re either a parent or a student, then it’s highly recommended that you prepare for the fall semester as best as possible. No one says that you cannot handle your move if this is the first time you go to college. On the other hand, if this is an off-campus move to an apartment or a return to college, you may want to consider hiring a moving company to make this process as swift as possible. In fact, if you hire movers, then you and Thornton will have something in common. But who keeps track of these things anyway? Enjoy your semester!
