With frequent moves in and out of college dorms, moving services can be a great help for students. Whether going back home at the end of the school year or moving into a new dorm, hiring professionals can make the twice-yearly transitions much smoother. In the article “Student Moving Tips” from Civic Projects, you can find some helpful advice for packing up and storing your dorm-room items.

Remember to write a detailed inventory list so that you can make sure you have everything when you come back in the fall.
