More Information on Moving Out

March 26, 2020


Things have changed greatly over the past two weeks here in Athens. Unlike what we imagined, the end of the spring semester and 2019-2020 school year is coming to a close in an extremely different way. While this can leave you uncertain and worrisome, we at Parents of Georgia hope to help you during this time as much as we can. 


Need help with moving and storage?

We have created a page on our website with some local moving and storage companies that can help you during this time. You can visit this page at this link: https://www.parentsofgeorgia.com/moving-storage


Here are a few tips to consider when packing your things up to go into storage:

  1. Consider splitting a storage unit with a roommate or friend to reduce the cost and save on space. 

  2. Consider a climate controlled storage unit to keep belongings and items free from mildew, mold, and weather destruction.

  3. If a climate controlled unit is not available, pack belongings into plastic totes with lids instead of boxes to avoid damage.

  4. Take all soft items home! Pillows, couches, chairs, rugs, etc. may mildew or mold in a storage unit - especially in units that are not climate controlled.

  5. Any mattresses should be packed in mattress plastic packaging to avoid any damage.
