Moving Out Of The Resident Hall

Uncategorized , , , ,

It is the end of the semester and you are busier than you have ever been during the whole year: you are busy pulling all-nighters, studying for finals, turning in those twenty page papers, and finishing up summer internship plans. In addition, there is a certain date and time for you to move out of your resident hall. Moving can be stressful and generally not fun, but Austin Moving Forward can help you move out of the resident hall for the summer with minimal hassle.

Be Prepared

Find out when you have to move out of your dorm. Know what is required when your room is inspected as some resident halls require you to remove everything and to leave the dorm room empty. Find out what you have to do with the keys and where the garbage goes.

Find Storage Place

If you live within driving distance to your parents’ house, then finding storage is already taken care of. However, if you attend college, out-of-town, out-of-state, on the other side of the country, then you will have to find a place to put all your belongings. Austin Moving Forward offers storage in our secure state of the art storage facility located in Austin, Tx. Standard Storage Rates Apply. We can also provide boxes and a kit to help you pack up. 

How to Pack

When you are packing, separate your items into two piles: decide what you need with you over the summer and what you will not need until the fall. As you pack, you may come across a load of papers and brochures, books, food, and clothing that you don’t want or need anyone. Recycle the papers. Instead of discarding (and therefore wasting) the other items, give them to a friend or a dorm mate or leave it in a place for anyone to take.

Tidying Up

Sweep and vacuum your dorm room, making sure you collect all the dust bunnies in the corner. Throw away any remaining garbage in the trash. Remove any stains that are on the walls. Leave the room as clean as possible. Reorganize the dorm furniture as you originally found it or you may incur a fine.

Final Look

Do one last sweep and search every nook and cranny- drawers, desk corners, under the bed, etc. for anything (especially small items) you could have possibly missed.
