Moving Into Your First College Apartment

Moving to College

School is almost back in session and it's time to move into your first college apartment. This is an exciting time, but it can also be a little daunting. How do you pack up all your stuff and get it to your new place? And what if you don't have enough space in your new apartment for everything?

Don't worry, we're here to help you get all moved in so you can focus on a year full of study sessions, football games, and lasting memories.


Start by going through all your stuff and deciding what you want to bring with you and what you can leave behind. This is a great opportunity to get rid of anything you don't need or want anymore. Once you've sorted through your things, pack them into boxes and be sure to label everything to stay organized.

Renting Portable Storage

You probably won't be able to fit all of your belongings into the back of your car. That's where Go Mini's Franchising, LLC. can help! Our moving containers, A.K.A Mini's, are dropped off at the location of your choosing for you to fill up with your belongings at your leisure. Once you are all packed up our team will transport the Mini to your new home.

This will add a level of convenience to your move that allows you to focus on your upcoming school year.

Moving Day

Before hitting the road, double check that you have all of your belongings.Then give your family one last hug - don't worry, you'll see them at Thanksgiving! Do your best to stick to a schedule if you are driving. Moving takes a long time and if you're going a long distance, the day can easily get away from you! Rest assured that your Mini will be waiting for you at your new space.

Arriving at Your Apartment

When you finally arrive at your new apartment, it's time to start unpacking and making yourself at home. Once your Mini is empty, give our team a call and we'll remove it.

Secure Storage Options

After unpacking, you may find that your new home isn't as spacious as you anticipated. If you and your roommates are in need of a place to store extra furniture, consider going in together on a secure storage unit from Go Mini's Franchising, LLC.! We'll keep your items safe all the way through graduation.
