Dorm Move-In Tips

September 24, 2020, 13:11

Starting college is often the first step into adulthood. The prospect of meeting new people, networking with professionals, and learning more about ourselves can be exciting. But none of that can happen before getting settled on campus. Moving can be an intensely emotional time in anyone’s life without the stress of college. When you add the anxiety of starting a new school and living independently for the first time, emotions can run high. Let Marcus Allard Truck Rental help make the big move a little less stressful with our fleet of rental vans and these helpful tips.

Know Before You Go

Sort out all the details before you arrive on campus. Know your move-in time, where your building is, and how long you have to unload your belongings. When it comes to renting a van, determine how long the trip will take. Marcus Allard Truck Rental has a flexible rental period, allowing you to rent the cargo van for a day, week, or as long as needed! Do you plan on bringing the entire family to help you get settled? We also rent pickup trucks and passenger vans that are perfect for the whole family.

Only Bring What You Need

Even though it is tempting to bring every item you own, you are most likely moving into a smaller space than you are accustomed to. Your dorm is should already be furnished with the essential furniture items, so you only need to bring the necessities for everyday life. For the over packers, however, our cargo vans have 149 cubic feet of storage area to accommodate all your suitcases, boxes, and bins.

Stay Organized

Packing is hard, but getting everything into the back of the van and unloading on campus is even harder. Save yourself the struggle of finding your phone charger or toothbrush by labeling your boxes and bins as you pack. Not only does this help keep track of your items, but it also helps organize the van once you start loading.
