They Get a Dorm, You Get a Spare Room!

By Storbox Self-Storage on August 26, 2016 - Comments off

It’s that time of year again! With the school year underway, many students have packed up their most prized possessions and moved into dorm rooms for the next nine months or so. Though it’s often difficult for parents to say goodbye, they’re also left with a very important decision on what to do with the now vacate bedrooms left behind by their son or daughter, or maybe even both. A student moving away to college is an opportunity to turn an empty bedroom into a functional office space, an in-home gym, or even just a place to relax and read a good book. But, room overhauls like this definitely don’t happen overnight. It takes careful planning, and a dependable storage partner to help sift through the old so it can be replaced with the new.

Properly packing up and storing your college student’s possessions is the first step in transforming an empty room into a space you’ll actually be able to use. Fragile items should be packed together, with each individual item wrapped securely in either tissue paper or bubble wrap. Most importantly, you’re going to want to label each box with the contents it contains so that your son and daughter can easily locate an item if they need it right away (or if your son and daughter are at school out-of-state, it will make it easier for you to find the item and ship it to them). Once you’ve gotten everything packed up, the best thing you can do is store the items in a designated space that will be sure to keep everything safe and sound.
