Cost-Effective Ways For Your College Move

College represents the beginning of a significant period of your life, and you’ll have a lot to worry about other than just a move. With the help of DFW Fireman Movers, a local mover in Fort Worth, your move can be much easier and lower stress. Follow these tips and keep these steps in mind so you can stay organized.

1. Sort out the essentials

Dorm rooms are usually short on space. As you are packing, focus on the essentials and leave behind whatever won’t be necessary for your new circumstances.

Cost-Effective Ways For Your College Move

2. Check out your new place beforehand and prepare accordingly

Most college dorm rooms were built a long time ago and may lack specific amenities, like air conditioning. If this is the case, bring a fan to keep you cool. If your new place is a house or apartment, look for preexisting damage so you will not be on the hook for damage that isn’t your fault. If you plan to have a pet, like a fish or a hamster, make sure these are allowed without a deposit. It could cost you a fine later if you do not have that permission.

3. Arrange for utilities in advance

You don’t want your first day at college spent without electricity or other services. Make sure to sign up for utility services before you arrive at your living space. Make a list: Water, TV, internet, electricity, and check that these will be live upon move in.

4. Avoid moving during peak times

People tend to move on weekends more often than on weekdays. If you’re able to schedule your move during off times, you won’t have to dodge as many other students while you’re moving to your dorm room. Also, local movers in Fort Worth typically have more bookings on the weekends, so if you’re moving from Fort Worth or Dallas, where the population is larger, your scheduling options will be greater on weekdays.

5. Pack efficiently

To cut down on the number of trips back and forth you’ll have to make, fill purses, beach bags, backpacks, or other containers with small items, then pack those in a box. Use things you already have like towels, t-shirts, and old newspapers to protect fragile items as you pack.

6. Hold off on buying new stuff

Resist the temptation to buy items you think you’ll need until after you’ve moved in. After the move, you’ll be better able to assess your gaps. You also might be able to save money by coordinating with your new roommates ahead of time so you’re not duplicating purchases.

7. Get help from family and friends

Your Fort Worth move will go smoother with help, so enlist family and friends. Offer them pizza and beer as an enticement.

8. Keep the summer heat in mind

Texas summer heat can be brutal. Make sure you are not leaving items that can combust, melt, or spoil like aerosol cans, some electronics, or food outside for long periods.

9. Look for discounts

Many businesses offer discounts to students, so make sure to keep your student ID on hand.  Don’t be shy about requesting discounts from grocery stores, movie theaters, local restaurants, or moving companies like DFW Fireman movers. Look for online listings as well as signs in the store windows advertising discounts for students.

10. Don’t decorate until after you move

Get your large items into your space first, like your bed and desk.  Then you can put pictures, posters, and other decorations up.  Decorating will help you to feel comfortable in your new space.

11. Map out your living area beforehand

Check out the floor plan of your new place beforehand and decide where you will put furniture and other large items to avoid confusion on moving day and having to relocate heavy items afterward.

We hope these tips will help make your move to college stress-free. If you need help with your fort worth area move, get an obligation-free quote by contacting DFW Firemen Movers.
