How to have a stress-free student move
Contrary to popular belief, moving does not have to be a stressful time for you. If you follow our moving tips and advice, you are sure to have a stress-free student move.
- Plan early: As soon as you know that you need to move, begin to plan your move. This is because moving is a set of tasks that need to be tackled individually for a stress-free process. Therefore, write down a plan of how you intend to move, what you need to move with and so on.
- Decide where you will live: As a student moving to university, you should decide whether you will settle for on-campus accommodation, or an apartment near the college. Advisably, find out from the college if they offer accommodation throughout your stay in college or only in the first year of study.
- Find help: Moving is a process you cannot hope to achieve by yourself without getting stressed. Ask for help from friends and family. Alternatively, you could hire a moving company to help with your move.
Why using a professional mover is a good idea
The experts at moving are, without a doubt, professional moving companies. However, they do not come cheap, but the benefits attached to using their services are priceless.
- Availability: Once you sign a moving contract, you can count on the movers to show up at the stipulated time. No matter the time of day or the season, the movers will be available as agreed upon in the contract.
- No risk of injury: Moving involves lots of heavy lifting and hauling, an exercise which could strain your muscles or even cause an injury. When you hire professional movers, you don’t have to deal with the heavy lifting at all.
- Efficiency: You can be sure that a professionally trained mover will disassemble your furniture faster than you could ever do. Furthermore, they have all the right equipment to make the process of moving faster and more efficient.
How to find a professional moving company
There are various ways you can find a professional moving company. Therefore, we have compiled three easy steps to get you started.
- Ask around: Your family and friends are the best to ask for recommendations to any reliable local movers. Furthermore, you can ask local realtors as well as businesses that have recently relocated.
- Visit the movers: Using the addresses you have collected, visit the moving companies that you have compiled. If a company does not have a physical address, drop them because they might be a broker or scam.
- Interview the movers
Ask questions about your move and the expectations that you have concerning your impending move. Moreover, you should ask them for past customers as well as whether they have managed a move like yours before. Settle on the mover you feel most comfortable with.
