Printer-Friendly Hassle-Free Moving for College-Bound Kids

Sending your child to college is stressful enough without the worries of moving. FedEx gives parents a number of options to make the big move go smoothly.
The acceptance letters have arrived. Campus tours are done. The check is in the mail. It’s time to pack up your kids for college. Whether your star student is getting to college by planes, trains or automobiles, FedEx Office can help save you time, money and effort with:

Professional packing services. If your kid’s haul is hard to manage, leave the labor to us. Bring your items to a FedEx Office Print & Ship CenterSM and our experienced staff will pack and ship almost anything for you, regardless of the shape or size. From dishware to framed photographs, snowboards to gaming systems, we’ve got the perfect box on hand — and if we don’t, we’ll customize one on site.

We also have a wide selection of corrugated boxes, padded envelopes, cushion wrap, mailing tubes, labels, packing tape, and more at FedEx Office locations. For high-tech items such as laptops and MP3 players, we offer a specially designed and cushioned laptop box and small-electronics box.

Shipping in advance. College-bound kids who are heading out of state or overseas can ship their luggage ahead of time with FedEx Express® or FedEx Ground®. If your child is “traveling heavy,” this option can be an alternative to the rising costs airlines charge for baggage handling. And we’ll deliver the bags directly to the dorm, house or apartment.
