3 Essential Tips for Students Moving Long-Distance for College

Moving to a college across the country (or out of the country) is an exciting new chapter for any young adult. However, moving is no small task. It requires extensive planning and organization. Affordable Quality Moving & Storage is ready to help you reduce the stress of moving. We provide you with tips and tricks to help you with the packing process for your international move.

Tip #1: Develop a Packing System

A great way to stay organized while packing is to color-code your items, such as your bathroom items, kitchen items, and bedroom items. It also helps you keep track of your things so you don’t lose anything. You’ll know exactly where everything is packed, which will also make the unpacking process go much smoother.

Tip #2: Pack an Overnight Bag

Chances are you might be too tired to unpack when you first move into your dorm room. That's why it's helpful to bring an overnight back that has your essentials. You may want to include a change of clothes, pajamas, toiletries, etc. Thinking ahead and packing an overnight bag will prevent you from needing to rummage through your boxes for clean clothes.
