Life is a journey. Move well.

The Three Ages of College Movers


Remember freshman English class? Then this should ring a bell: “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.” If these famous lines hold true, college kids may need help shuttling their many props from one stage to the next. As Shakespeare went on to write, “A man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages.” Instead of seven, here are the three ages of college movers. Perhaps these might remind you of someone else you know!

The Freshman

The Freshman is eager to prove herself. After years of instruction in elementary, middle and high school, the incoming University of Arizona class is at the age when they are ready to live and learn independently, in their own way. That’s why moving can be such a predicament: the freshman might be ready to move past getting help from their parents. However, most of their friends will be busy looking up Tucson movers, too, and moving is a lot of work for one person.

The Freshman can also be recognized by her eagerness to learn, and if it’s the first time moving for a new college kid, there will be many things to learn. A good moving company will be happy to answer any question about the costs, safety, and best practices of a successful move. It can also help, of course, with the heavy lifting.

The Mid-College Mover

The Mid-College Mover will consider moving – and is unfazed. At this stage, college students have completed at least a semester or two of college and they have been through one major moving experience. Their newfound knowledge will reinforce the impulse to move independently. But this could be a premature judgment. After several semesters of college, the Mid-College Mover has probably amassed a sizable library of books and possessions, necessitating even more help.

Luckily, the Mid-College Mover truly does have it figured out. He has finally found a new home in a new city, and knows exactly which dorm, neighborhood, or apartment is the perfect fit to move to. For these movers, hiring a moving company may be the best option: they are ready to “move on,” and they have the networking and know-how to find the right moving company.

The Graduate

If the Mid-College Mover was working on his library, the Graduate is ready to start renting out books. The Graduate can also be identified by their massive collection of term papers, mementos, and exams inscribed with the hard-earned “A.” As one might guess, the prototypical Graduate is not ready to part with college life, but knows she has to move on.

Cling on, Graduates, cling on: your library of books and your mini-museum of college mementos might be too much for friends and family to carry down 10 flights of apartment stairwells, but the right moving company will be happy to help.

Wherever you are in your journey through college one of the most important lessons learned in college is to know how to take care of yourself and lead an independent life. This doesn’t mean doing everything alone, but also knowing when it’s time to call in the experts. Don’t miss out on important college memories or risk damaging furniture and belongings. Hire professional movers and give yourself a break.
