PODS of Tucson Ensures Effortless Move into College with Moving and Storage Expertise

Leading moving and storage company gives moving tips for college students
    TUSCON, AZ, August 19, 2015 /24-7PressRelease/ -- PODS of Tucson knows that heading off to college can be an expensive, life-changing experience, and with 45 percent of students using their parents as their main source of income, it can be equally as terrifying for mom or dad. Students and their parents can rest assured that PODS can at least ensure a smooth, easier move before they make their way into a new college residence.

Just like generations before, students are tasked with packing up all their belongings and moving from living with their parents to living on their own, some for the first time.

"Moving away from home and into a college dorm is an exciting but equally emotional time for the students" said Lane Moore, owner of PODS of Tucson. "PODS has been here to help make the move a relaxing moving experience for both the students and their parents by offering dependable moving and storage options. Plus we offer youth the of storing their stuff over the summer in our local storage centers."

Before students make the big move, PODS of Tucson offers students entering into the fall semester, simplified moving tips to help make the move safer, greener and much more efficient:

10 College Moving Tips for Students
1. Check out the college or apartment complex website for moving information and resources ahead of time. Use a checklist of suggested items to bring and keep the packing process focused and streamlined.
2. Begin packing belongings a couple of weeks ahead of time to keep last minute stress to a minimum. Instead of cramming everything into a car with only room for the driver, rent a PODS container one week prior to the moving date and let PODS deliver everything to the new destination. This provides a relaxed schedule for both parents and students.
3. Have a friend, roommate or fellow student moving to the same school? With enough room to spare, share the cost of a PODS container to school and keep your stuff at college by sharing a container over the summer.
4. If you will be sharing a dorm room with one or more fellow students, contact them ahead of time. Discuss personal styles and work together on making the dorm room a "home away from home." Discuss larger items such as microwaves and TVs to avoid duplicates to maximize space.
5. Upon arrival to the new living destination, give the folks at PODS a call for a scheduled delivery of your container within 24 hours. Unpacking is easy thanks to ground-level accessibility.
6. Be realistic and don't over-pack. Find out the dimensions of the room(s) that will be occupied. Consolidate and don't bring items that won't be needed.
7. Important rule of thumb for packing boxes: pack heavy items such as books in small boxes and lighter items such as towels and linens in larger boxes. Be sure to label each of your boxes on all sides.
8. Make sure items are safely protected during the move. Items most likely used for packaging include: bubble wrap, packing tape, plastic stretch wrap, cushion foam, wadded up newspapers and old blankets and towels.
9. Think ahead and buy green. Purchase green items such as natural material furniture and organic sheets to reduce your carbon footprint. Donate your used items to local nonprofits.
10. Ask family and friends in advance for help transporting belongings in and out of PODS containers. If no help is available, a local PODS representative will have a list of reliable movers available for an affordable cost.
