Started in 1892, Central Michigan University (CMU) is one of the largest public universities and top research center found in Mount Pleasant in the state of Michigan, US. It offers 200 academic programs from undergraduate to doctoral levels and has enrolment of over 20,000 students. Over the years, it has positioned itself as a foundation of knowledge for a meaningful career and a home where you make friendships for a lifetime. Whether you are an international student, a high school leaver, undergraduate or graduate student planning a transfer or you have relocated to Michigan and you need a university near home, this is one of the universities you may consider. Moving to CMU for the first time, or away after completing your program or campus transfer means carrying lots of household goods. This poses a major challenge especially if you are moving long distance, from state to state, or within the country. To make your journey fun and memorable, get a reputable mover to move your goods. A-1 Auto Transport offers full moving and shipping services to and from CMU.
Tips on how to make your CMU move easier
When you are looking to move to or from CMU, keep these few important tips in mind.
- Book your house in advance: Know ahead of time about the housing options, facilities available in the dorm or apartment, services offered, and regulations to be followed. Generally, CMU has 22 on-campus apartments. Most apartments are partitioned into two-bedrooms meant for 4 to 5 students. You can also inquire about off campus housing options, rental rates, conditions, size, and how far they are from the campus. Such information will help you plan ahead.
- Get in touch with your roommates: If possible, get to know the furniture your roommates are planning to carry along. You can agree on what household goods each of you will bring to avoid carrying similar and bulky furniture with no place to put them all. You can also plan to arrive on the same day so that you assist each other in unpacking your belongings and arranging the dorm or apartment.
- Pack neatly and smart: Once you have come up with a list of household goods you need to move, get moving boxes and start packing early enough. Start with the most essential items. Pack delicate items with lots of care. You can seek help from friends, relatives or professionals especially if you have heavy furniture and a pool table.
- Hire a professional mover: Hiring a professional auto transport company saves a lot of time and moving cost when you have lots of goods to move over a long distance. Get quotes from them to have rough estimates.
