Heading to college is one of the most exciting and nerve-wracking times. All that hard work and preparation have finally paid off, and for many, the adventure of a lifetime is about to begin. 

There is a lot of planning that goes into moving to college. Many families and college students turn to a professional moving company to help them make that all-important move. With so many other things to consider, hiring a team of college student movers to get the heavy lifting done just makes sense. 

Preparing for college can be tricky and overwhelming. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of the top reasons hiring our team of professional college movers in Boston is a smart choice for your college student and some of our best tips and tricks for making the big move to campus.


Benefits of Hiring a College Moving Company

Delegate the Heavy Lifting 

Often, dorm movers have to navigate a long walk from the moving truck to the dorm room. It’s not always as easy as pulling into a driveway and unloading items directly into a home. There might be several flights of stairs, narrow hallways filled with people, and small spaces to navigate. Hiring a professional with the knowledge and experience to handle a move like this is extremely helpful for most college students. 


Utilize Temporary Storage

College dorm rooms can be small and limited in space. Many college students need an affordable way to store belongings they’re not planning to take with them but need close by or items that don’t fit into that tight dorm space. Milvus Moving has safe and secure temporary storage options to handle those items. 


Affordable Options

It’s no secret that college is expensive. But hiring college moving help doesn’t have to be. Many professional moving companies offer very affordable prices for college students. Investing in skilled and experienced help can make what otherwise would be a very long and stressful day go much smoother - and at a reasonable price.

Tips & Tricks for Moving to Campus

We understand that every move is different, and moving to or from a college dorm requires special consideration. Milvus Moving is the premier college moving company in Boston because we give each job individual attention. Here are our best tips and tricks to pull off a move to campus the right way. 


Start Planning Early

Preparing for a college move means knowing what you’re going to take with you ahead of time. Make a list of the essential items you will need to bring. Then consider the items you would like to bring. Prepare this list in advance so you’re not left scrambling on the big day. 


Start Packing

Packing can take longer than you expect, so start early. Pack those items you won’t need immediately first and leave critical items to the end. Or, save some time and stress and let us do the packing for you! 


Pack Smartly

Packing is an art form, and if you don’t plan ahead you might be making more work for yourself. Choose the right packing materials to get the job done right. Consider using large storage totes that are secure and easy to carry. And remove any items that come in individual packaging beforehand to save space and time after the move is complete.


Avoid Packing Things You Can Buy Later

You’re going to have enough to worry about without having to pack and carry notebook paper and pencils. Consider holding off on buying those items that you can quickly and easily acquire until after you’re moved in. 


Know When To Move

Many colleges have specific rules about moving, including when you can move your belongings into the dorm. Do your due diligence beforehand and understand the rules, dates, and times your college requires. 


Know Where You’re Going 

Tour the campus and your dorm room so you know exactly where you need to go and how much space you have to work with. Some campuses allow curbside delivery of large items during specific time windows. Make sure you communicate that with your team of movers. 


Communicate With Your Roommate

If you’re sharing a room with someone, it can help to reach out ahead of time and coordinate your plans. That way, you won’t both bring the same items, like appliances, and struggle with a lack of space unnecessarily.
