9 Tips to Make Your Fort Worth Moving Day to College Easier

Moving to college is exciting but also stressful, whether you’re using local movers in Fort Worth or not. Here are some tips so help you feel less overwhelmed.

1. Arrive at Your New Place Early

Leave for your college a day or two early. Doing this will give you a chance to pick up any items you may have sent using carriers like FedEx and UPS or items you have on hold at local stores. Take a trip to your campus to pick up room keys and student IDs before the moving-day student rush.

9 Tips to Make Your Fort Worth Moving Day to College Easier

2. Prepare a Kit for Cleaning and Unpacking

Think about what you’ll need to unpack and clean your room, then assemble a kit so you don’t have to spend time scrambling to find items later. Examples include box cutters, scissors, markers, paper towels, and cleaning sprays.

3. Plan Your Moving Day Around Your College’s Rules and Schedules

Colleges typically have a window during which you’re allowed to move in. Check with the school to find out times of peak moving activity and avoid those times. Also, find out if the school has guidelines for moving in. These might involve procedures around securing your things after unpacking to prevent theft. Staff should be available to help if you have additional questions.

4. Dress for the Move

Wearing light clothing and sneakers makes it easier to haul boxes and navigate stairs. Also, don’t forget to bring bottles of water.

5. Use a Doorstop to Keep Your Dorm Room Open

Not only does it make it for you and your local movers in Fort Worth to move in, but it also encourages your fellow residents to say hello. Consider having donuts or other treats available for passersby to help you make new friends.

6. Parents Should Let Their Teen Take Charge

College is a major step towards a child’s independence. Allow them to be in charge of unpacking and dealing with issues when appropriate and to decide when they feel comfortable with you leaving. Keep in mind that the college might have events planned for parents and students after moving day. This will affect the date you leave.

7. Get Numbers for Roommates and Their Parents

Contact information will come in handy in the future if you’re unable to reach your kid.

8. Expect to Schedule Errands around the Unexpected

It’s common to forget important items during a move, so you might need to take a trip to the local Wal-Mart. Also, don’t forget to pick up food and snacks at the grocery store if you have a mini-fridge to fill.

9. Remain Calm

Parents will likely feel a lot of emotion when children leave the nest. Your actions will affect your teen’s mood, so try to be patient and calm. Do your crying after the move. Remember to take photos and send a care package from home afterward.

  • Mike Z

    I wanted to reach out and thank you and your crew for the help and work they did in my move. Your guys were professional and very positive throughout the whole move. They really put me at ease and what I thought would be very frustrating day was a good experience. They were very careful and treated my stuff with great care. When they arrived I felt we were maybe not as packed and organized as we should have been but they helped get it together and packed on the truck. I was so glad it went so smooth. Please thank the crew and please use us as a reference as we are a happy customer. My daughter had used you and we were glad she gave us your number.
