Movers Marietta GAIf you are hiring movers in Marietta, Georgia, to help you move into a new dorm, there are a few things that must be kept in mind. A dorm room is typically a rather small space, and it’s possible the room will be shared with another person. Therefore, it is important to pack only what you need and keep it organized.

Follow these tips to prepare for dorm move-in day, so that when the movers arrive you are ready to go:

  • Thoroughly read over any documents you have received from the college regarding the dorms, so that you are aware of what items might not be allowed in the dorms. Also, colleges will usually supply information on where cars or trucks can be parked for unloading on move-in day, which is helpful information to give to your movers.
  • Only bring the clothes you will need for the next month or so, and leave your winter clothes at home, instead of having the movers transport them from Marietta. Since it will be at least a couple months until you need to wear these heavier items, your parent can ship these to you later after you have settled in and organized everything else in your dorm.
  • Pack your boxes in an organized manner, grouping similar items together. For example, all the items for your desk can go in one box, all bed linens in another box, etc. This will make it easy to tell the movers what to put where, and will also make unpacking go more smoothly.
